This Park was originally created for the purpose of being a sanctuary for wild animals that lost their home due to the construction of the Uda Walawe Reservoir on the Walawa River. It was designated as a National Park in 1972 with 31,000 hectares of landscape and today it homes several species of plants, animals and birds. Not only is it a popular attraction for tourists, but it is also widely visited by the locals.
The Transit Home is a lively place. Feeding the calves with milk every three hours is a recurring job throughout the 365 days of the year. The concept of this establishment was to look after the orphaned elephant calves until they could look after themselves when released back to the wild.
