Wildlife Sri Lanka's Wild Denizens

Sri Sharavi Beach Villas & Spa is an ideal base from which to visit a multitude of tourist attractions in Sri Lanka including both the Yala and Udawalawe National Parks, known for their exhilarating wildlife safaris that take you deep into the jungle.

Yala National Park is one of the world’s best places to spot and photograph the majestic leopard. Best observed early morning or in the evenings, the endemic Sri Lankan leopard can sometimes be seen strolling along jungle tracks or basking on a rock observing its vast kingdom.

Udawalawe National Park is famed for its safaris that give you a chance to spot the island’s iconic Sri Lankan elephant as they wander around in herds, oblivious to visitors. From regal male tuskers to calves playing in the water, these safaris let you observe these pachyderms like never before.

On your adventures to the Yala and Udawalawe National Parks you may also come across deer, sloth bears, toque macaques, crocodiles as well as a stunning array of birdlife, making for a truly awe-inspiring excursion for the whole family.
