Wasgamuwa Safari Sri Lanka - Holiday Bungalows Location

 Wasgamuwa National Park located in the Central Province of Sri Lanka is little known to many visitors as a Wildlife Park. The Eco System and the Natural Environment therein is largely unspoiled. Wasgamuwa is famous as an elephant habitat. These Elephants, the population of which is about 150- 200 are known to be less habituated to people and it is the unique feature in Wasgamuwa. According to many wildlife lovers, it is certainly one of the best places in Sri Lanka to watch and experience 'Wild Elephants' in their own habitat. They are in fact wild and raw and of course bigger in size than most of the elephants found in other National Parks. It shall be an extremely vibrant wildlife experience to see and watch their magnificent behaviour.

The Park with an extent of around 100,000 Acres of wilderness is surrounded on one side by Mahaweli River and other side by Amban River and it stretches up to Parakrama Samudraya in Polonnaruwa side. It has a large no of tanks and grass lands inside which are habitat to many species of Birds and other animals mentioned above and provides nourishment to their food chain system. Another important feature is that there are 3 main Ramayana related locations in and around Wasgamuwa. They are "Dunuwila Tank",and "Yudaganawa" in Wasgamuwa itself and "Biso Kotuwa" in Hasalaka on the route to Wasgamuwa. They are special attractions to visitors interested in Indian Culture and History.

Wildlife Safaris
Wild life safaris can be organized to the Wasgamauwa National Park which is just 200 m to its entrance from the Bungalow.

The Park opens at 6.00 in the morning and closes at 6.00in the evening. The morning visits (which are more advantageous for Bird watching as well) shall start from 6.00 a.m. and shall be over by around 10.00a.m. The afternoon session usually starts around 2.30 and shall continue till 6.00p.m. The evening sessions are more popular among those who love to watch wild elephants in herds roaming around in the grasslands.

A 6-7 hour full day session starts around 10.30-11.00 and visitors can go to the Park with prepared lunch and go up to Mahaweli River, have a bath there and have lunch, relax for a while till the sunsets and start the returning journey leisurely with ample time to see wildlife. It is basically a 'spend-the -day- in the Park' package.
Trekkers shall be detailed by the Park Authorities to accompany the visitors for safety reasons of both visitors and animals. These figures change from time to time as per the regulations of the Dept of Wildlife Conservation.
Safari jeeps are available at the Bungalows. These jeeps have been selected from among reliable Operators who have back- up services as well.
