Kaudulla National Park


Location

KAUDULLA NATIONAL PARK


Facilitate Agents:

Kaudulla National Park is located 197 km away from the largest city, Colombo. It was designated a national park on April 1, 2002 becoming the 15th such area on the island. In the 2004 to 2005 season more than 10,000 people visited the National Park, generating an income of Rs.100, 000 from entrance fees.

Along with Minneriya and Girithale BirdLife International have identified Kaudulla as an Important Bird Area. The faunal species recorded in the park include 24 species of mammals, 25 species of reptiles, 26 species of fish, and 160 species of bird. In the drought period Sri Lankan Elephants move to the Minneriya tank to drink and feed. Around the month of September the elephants move to the Kaudulla tank in search of more water and food. Despite the escalating human-elephant conflict, the number of elephants increased in the dry zone and 211 individuals have been counted in Kaudulla as recently as 2008.
