Enjoy the wildlife in peace and calm at the less crowded National Parks
Maduru Oya National Park
maduru oya

Established under the Mahaweli Development programme, the park was designated in November 1983 and provides a sanctuary for wildlife. A community of Vedda people, the indigenous ethnic group of Sri Lanka, live within the boundaries of the National Park. The park lies entirely in Sri Lanka’s dry zone, although the park’s southern boundary is near its intermediate zone.

Maduru Oya is well known for its Elephant habitat, but other than that, Leopard, Sloth Bear, Sambur, Spotted and Barking deer, Wild boar and Wild buffalo are also found here. The Toque macaque, Purple-faced langur, the nocturnal Slender loris, Porcupine, Black Naped Hare, Indian Pangolin and many varieties of squirrels are also found in the park.

More than a hundred species of birds are found at the park; some of them are the Lesser adjutant, Woolly-necked stork, Openbill and Painted stork, Greater racket-tailed drongo, Yellow-fronted barbet, Sri Lankan Junglefowl and Spurfowl.

This park is on the list of the least- visited parks in Sri Lanka and you will find complete tranquillity as you view its beautiful fauna and flora. Since it is home to the people of the Vedda community as well, you will find your experience most fascinating and enlightening.

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.
