Safari at Bundala National Park

AVAILIBILITY: YEAR AROUND

SAFARI OPTIONS: HALF DAY, FULL DAY & TAILOR MADE

ACCOMDATION OPTIONS: CAMPING 0R STAR HOTELS

Spread over an impressive 6,000 hectares, the Bundala National Park is located in the southern district of Hambantota in Sri Lanka. Falling within the dry zone, the vegetation is predominantly of a dry, thorny scrubland variety which acts as a natural barrier to the wind. The climate is generally dry and arid and the terrain flat with sand dunes borders the coastline.

The Park has also been recognised as an Important Bird Area (IBA) in Sri Lanka. An admirable diversity of avifauna including: Lesser Whistling Ducks, Indian Cormorants, and Black-necked Storks as well as large water birds like the Grey Heron, Painted Stork and the Black-headed Ibis can all be sighted at Bundala; undoubtedly, a birder’s paradise.

Bundala features a series of lagoons which are an important habitat for wintering water birds. It is due to this landscape that Bundala was declared Sri Lanka's first Ramsar wetland. The best time to visit the Bundala National Park is between August and April, when shore bird numbers can reach as high as 20,000 with approximately 197 species, including several species of migratory waterfowl - resulting in it being designated as a biosphere reserve by UNESCO in 2005.

The trip you suggested and organized through Eco Team gave us a good overview. We liked specially the Mahoora Explorer in Wilpattu and Udawalawe.

Rukan was wonderful and we enjoyed his careful driving as well as his company throughout our journey. His English is very good and we had great conversations. It was nice to gain insight into the history and culture of Sri Lanka by speaking with him.
Our safari guide in Yala (Kasun) was the best! We saw 6 leopards and 3 sloth bears over the course of 4 outings. Compliments to him and the driver. I was worried that 4 safaris would not be enough, but that turned out not to be the case with their expert tracking skills.

We really enjoyed most of the lodges, especially Kings Pavilion, Chena Huts and Buckingham Place. Great rooms, service, and restaurants. Both Buckingham and Kings Pavilion surprised Rick with birthday cakes either in our room or at dinner. Buckingham also had a special table set up for us with flowers and decorations and the staff presented a birthday card signed by all of them!

All the food was wonderful both at the buffets and when ordering a la carte from menus. Pack meals during safaris were also very good with plenty of variety.

We both had a great time in your beautiful country. Thank you for all your help in planning this adventure. I would definitely recommend Eco Tours to my friends and family if they ever want to visit Sri Lanka. You really made us feel special.
