Located in the southeast corner of Sri Lanka , the 18,149 hectare KUMANA (YALA EAST) NATIONAL PARK is a well-known eco tourism 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 nest in 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 birdlife, Kumana is also home to some of the mammals found in the larger YALA NATIONAL PARK (west) park, such as elephants and leopards. The vegetation in Kumana consists mainly of mangrove trees, kumbuk trees and the karan fern, as well as the open marsh area. For bird watching enthusiasts, the park is an ‘absolute must’.

We did a full day safari, having a driver and vehicle to ourselves. We had indicated that we wanted to see elephants in particular so the driver went out his way to ensure we saw them alongside of lots of other birds and animals. We were incredibly well fed (3 meals) including some delicious hoppers and fruit for breakfast and then an insane curry, rice, sambol and other sides for lunch. The driver was very knowledgeable and good at spotting the animals. Kumana National Park itself is beautiful and very peaceful. You arrive just in time for sunrise and it really is wonderful to be at one with nature and taking a break from the hustle and bustle. I would recommend this company 100 percent!.

Perfect Full Day Kumana Safari!
This was one of the highlights of our trip! We enjoyed a full day tour round the Kumana National Park. As it was slightly off season we were almost the only people there- we had read that Yala National Park was usually overcrowded and didn’t want to disturb the animals too much, so this was a great park alternative!

The park itself is absolutely beautiful, especially arriving and leaving around sunset!

On the trip we saw elephants, crocodile, buffalo, wild boar, deer and lots of rare birds! We also saw two leopards, on separate occasions! Completely breathtaking to see in real life. As we were the only jeep in sight we could watch them peacefully without disrupting them. Our guide was amazing at spotting animals and could tell us lots of interesting facts about them. As well as being a great driver he also provided binoculars, lunch and drinks throughout the day.

Over all the trip exceeded our expectations, we would definitely go again on our next trip to srilanka. Thank you so much to Imam and his crew!

Full Day Off Season Wonderful Safari

We had an amazing experience with this full day safari. We were visiting Arugambay at the beginning on November. It’s considered low season at that time and you can see it during the safari trip. We were 8 people in our jeep and no-one else joined us. During whole day we passed only 4 other cars. That was amazing! We had a great breakfast and delicious lunch provided by Ansa & Salfiyar . We sow all the animals we hoped to see, including leopard.
We definitely recommend to take a trip to the Safari with Budget Arugambay Tours!
On top of that, we used their service to travel around Sri Lanka (arriving from Hikkaduwa and going to Colombo Airport). All rides in modern and comfortable van. On the way to Colombo our driver stopped by, so we could feed elephants and have a lunch in a real local bar – great experience itself!
