"Brilliant tour of the national park. Great facilities. Staff very helpful for booking a taxi which was a really good price as well. The place is difficult to find. The owners need to place the hotel on Google maps please! It's down a random road past the Kottawatta village. "

"Just wanted to go to the Safari and the owner helped us to find some other tourists to get a better price. The Safari was great, better than we expected!!! The food was also better than everything we had before in sri Lanka and also quiet cheap! The owner was very nice and helped us with everything also arranged a tuk tuk to bus station what he paid for us. Feeled very save and comfortable! The room was good, big bed with mosquito net. "

"The Mahoora tented safari provides great service but is let down by poor camp location. Our camp location was right next to, but not inside, Udawalawe National Park. Although it was right next to the park it was located some 60 minute drive from the camp entrance. Electric fences separated the camp from the Park, so there was little chance of wildlife coming within the park or us seeing anything from the camp itself. It was also next to a village and not far from a construction site, and so did not feel particularly remote. Since the main purpose of a safari camp is to be immediately close to wildlife, it seemed a bit pointless to us to camp so far away. We could have chosen anywhere to stay within a 60 minute drive to the Park entrance and would have had the same safari experience. I understand that the camp location moves from time to time, and that their other locations are usually within 15 minutes to the park entrance. However, in all these cases, why bother camping when you can have a nice hotel room within 15 minutes of the park entrance. If the camp was somewhere remote and in-nature, then there would have been useful. The campsite itself was dry, dusty and suffered from very strong winds. During the daytime the heat was oppressive at 35C. I know that it is not their fault about the weather, but if we had been staying in a hotel instead of a camp then we could easily have retreated inside until the heat and wind subsided. Having said that, there were some positives which helped justify the additional expense: Our jeep safari was very personal, in that we did not share the jeep with any other guests. Our jeep was also better provided with refreshments and snacks than other jeeps I saw within the safari park The evening dinner under firelight and next to a bonfire was very romantic. Food was better than average but not spectacular. All-inclusive means it is all inclusive of alcoholic beverages, which made the evening meal even more romantic "

"The hotel is very new, basic but clean. It is located near Udawalawe NP. The hotel organised our safari trip. The owner is very friendly and the food very delicous (and a lot of food!!) Please note that AC-Room is more expensive than a room without AC. We only realised that at the checkout.."

"We stayed at Udawalawe Safari resort for 2 nights after changing our booking form another hotel. We got scared off the other place after reading some horrible reviews and decided to book here instead as we needed a bit of luxury after some of our other experiences in Sri Lanka. It cost more than a couple of places we had previously stayed at, but boy was it worth it! we had a massive room with a very comfortable bed, and a nice big balcony to sit out on in the afternoon drinking beer and reading. The pool was also massive and we virtually had the place to ourselves for most of the afternoon. Also Buffet meals were fantastic. The staff helped us organise everything and just let us bill it all to our room and finalise payment when we checked-out. They were really helpful and made our stay very enjoyable. We organised an early morning Safari tour after our first night and I would recommend this as the main thing to do while you're there. We saw about 30 different elephants, as well as lots of other wildlife (Peacocks, land monitor, hawks, eagles, crocodiles, deer, etc). make sure you do this and also visit the elephant rehabilitaion centre a short walk from the resort."

"Beautiful place. They are the pioneers of Eco tents so they can well anticipate the requirements and needs of guests. Tents have been recently refurbished so as good as new. There's wifi in the common rest area. FLUSHABLE Toilets and shower in the tents. Tents are nicely zipped up so bugs won't come in. There's a mosquito diffuser provided. Plugs, fan, towels, proper beddings and sheets, everything you'll need. Treated to a BBQ dinner under the stars with a huge bonfire. How lovely! Beer and wine are available at a reasonable extra charge of 400 and 800 rupees each. Spoilt silly with a delicious lunch of Sri Lankan dishes before check out. Wifi is available at the common rest areas. The staff were extremely hospitable and friendly! Special shoutout to Manager Wayne and Sudesh for making us feel so at home. I would highly recommend this place to anyone visiting Sri Lanka and is looking for a "safe" adventure."

More about Udawalawe

Udawalawe National Park is one of Sri Lanka’s most beautiful natural treasures, home to wild buffalo, leopards, and of course, elephants. The park spans an immense amount of land, rivaling many natural reserves around the world, including the savannas of Africa. Udawalawe is located near the provinces of Uva and Sabaragamuwa, and is around 10 hours by train from Colombo.

The park is best accessed from Embilipitiya, which is located about 20 kilometers away and a great place in which to arrange one’s local tour guide if it has not yet been done. Hotels in the area will be very helpful in arranging these tours, as the local staff are better equipped to navigate some of the language barriers and other concerns that might arise. Once in Udawalawe, the wealth of natural wonders are sure to take up plenty of time, and the sights range from the popular Udawalawe Safari Camp to the Udawalawe Reservoir and much more. This is also the home of the Elephant Transit Home, which is where the injured elephants of the area are looked after by dedicated staff. The park itself is an impressive testament to Sri Lanka’s natural wonders, and it can take up several days for the dedicated travelers committed to exploring as much of it as possible. To find out where the rest of the park’s attractions are located, and where all of the hotels and guesthouses are in Udawalawe, take a look at the interactive map on this page and start planning the epic journey to this impressive place.
