Bundala National Park Attractions

The 150 bird species in here come from as far as Siberia and the Rann of Kutch in India, following interesting migratory patterns. Greater flamingo head here in wintertime in their thousands and wild peacocks are present too. Depending on the season you’ll spot small to large numbers of elephants, and also giant squirrels, crocodiles and civets. Be sure to catch sight of turtles like the Olive Ridley, Loggerhead and Leatherback as they come in due season to lay eggs on the coast. Here in this Park, you’ll find jungles, beaches, lagoons and sand dunes making up the general landscape. There are some nice dining locations along the coast heading toward this enchanting place.
