Kumana National Park Half Day Safari

Kumana National Park 

Located in the southeast corner of Sri Lanka, the 18,149 hectare Kumana (Yala East) National Park is a well-known eco-friendly tourist attraction and bird sanctuary where a multitude of birds breed and roost. One of the most significant features of the park is the Kumana Villu—a 200 hectare natural swamp lake, fed by the Kumbukkan Oya through a half mile long narrow channel. It is at this mangrove swamp that many water birds nests are found during the months of May and June. Regular sightings include such species of bird as pelicans, painted storks, spoonbills, white ibis, herons, egrets and little cormorants. The very rare black-necked stork has also been spotted at the swamp. Besides the prolific bird life, Kumana is also home to some of the mammals found in the larger Yala National Park (West), such as elephants and leopards, deer etc
