Located on the banks of Kaudulla Wewa (Kaudulla Tank), about 120 miles northeast of Colombo and 30 miles east of Sigiriya, Kaudulla National Park is home to a multitude of animals, including elephants, monkeys, wild boars, crocodiles, and leopards. It is also a sanctuary for native and migratory birds.

Covering an area of over 1600 acres, Kaudulla National Park is a “dry evergreen forest” with a large swath of grasslands near the take. Every day, a large number of elephants gather on these grasslands to feed on the grass, a spectacular event watched by tourists on their safari jeeps.

As you can see from the image, elephants are busy feeding themselves, and at the center is the mother and daughter pair.
