Bundala National Park Safari With Srimal

Bundala National Park Safari With Srimal is a small company with a very active owner Srimal. Their office is very close to the Bundala National park and just 15km away from Tissamaharama. He is a very friendly guy who grew up near this park and so has great knowledge of all the birds and animals. Overall, we recommend a tour with Srimal who is a very relaxed and trustworthy guy.

We had an early morning visit to Bundala. The landscape, in parts, is really quite beautiful. We were lucky that there was a bi of water around, and the birds and wildlife very active. We saw plenty of bird life including painted storks, spoonbills, ducks, toucans, hawks, water hens, peacocks etc. Quite a site to look over a small lake and see a tree denuded of leaves, but full of cormorants drying their outstretched wings. Wildlife included crocodiles, several troupes of grey langurs, wild boar, domestic cattle, water buffalo (a lot of them) and land monitors. The biggest surprise was driving to the coast and pulling up on a rocky outcrop at the Indian ocean. This particular spot also overlooks a fishing village. Having been to Yala, Minneriya and Udawalawe as well - Bundala deserves a place on the must do list for it's contrast to the others.

Great national park in sri lanka and would advise anyone who is looking to visit to use Chaminda who organised the tour for use and even picked up from our hotel which was 3 hours away!!!. Very peaceful and beautiful place with loads to see from birds, crocodiles, spotted deer cheeky monkeys and not forgetting the famous elephants.you will not see no more than 2-3 other jeeps in the park at anyone time Chaminda is very experienced and will explain all the animals to you and will go all the way to make sure you get to see the elephants in the park like he did with us.

Absolutely amazing afternoon close up with a herd of elephants, monkeys, more birds than I knew existed, crocodiles, water buffalo, jackals and lizards. Srimal was our guide, his knowledge of the park and the animals is excellent. He organised everything including transport to Bundala from our accommodation. He had his own jeep and skilled driver and Srimal sits in the back with you to spot animals. He is very considerate, engine off when animals are close. Brilliant day out! You can contact Srimal on WhatsApp on 0094779599397 or email on Khsrimal@yahoo.com
