Bird Watching in Kokduwa, Polonnaruwa

AVAILABILITY: Throughout the Year

TOUR OPTIONS: Morning and Evening Paddle Boat Tours

Kokduwa is a birdwatching haven close to Polonnaruwa, a city located in the north central province of Sri Lanka. This tour is a very feasible activity, since Polonnaruwa is usually featured on travel itineraries. Kokduwa records about 30 species of birds, of which a few are also migratory. This area happens to be the one of the best locations in this part of the country to experience the true essence of birding in Sri Lanka.

An excursion to Kokduwa will give you the opportunity to interact with the local community and learn about how they live and co-exist with the flora and fauna.

WTSL is the leading Birding company in Sri Lanka and we provide visitors with a wide range of birding tours around the country. All of our tours are handled by an experienced naturalist who helps you spot birds and other inhabitants while giving you an in-depth description of the park and its history.
