Sri Lanka is a tropical paradise home to diverse wildlife and having a rich history and cultural heritage. Base yourself at a Sri Lanka resort or more specifically a hotel in Pasikuda such as Maalu Maalu Resort & Spa, from where you can set out to visit Wasgamuwa National Park. Serving as a refuge for displaced wild animals in the country, the park is home to a herd of about 150 local elephants. Visitors to the park get the opportunity to experience relatively close encounters with these majestic mammals and witness their behavior in their natural habitat.
