Hambantota is no lightweight when it comes to the amount of wildlife you can see in the area. Yala is the most popular national park Sri Lanka has to offer, and it’s right in Hambantota District. But don’t think that Yala is the only option; Bundala is one of the best places for bird watching and Udawalawa is your best option to see elephants. Wherever you choose to go, you won’t be disappointed.
Before going on your safari, though, make sure you book a safari tour as that’s the only way to enter the park.
