A great place to see elephants in the wild, being happy and doing their thing. GO here DON'T go to Pinnewala which is known locally as the torture chamber. In Udawalawe the elephants are free to roam and they will come close to the jeep, and you will see lots of babies and pregnant mothers. Look out for the babies moving inside their mother's stomachs! We also saw two leopards one evening, and a single leopard early one morning. Try to get there really early, try to be the first ones in, and you might be lucky and see a shy leopard. Do an afternoon safari too as you can see them emerge shortly before dusk. Of course there are also lots of other wonderful birds and animals to see, try to do as many safaris as you can to give yourself the best chance of a leopard. And the elephants are always entertaining and beautiful.
