A visit to the Kumana National Park is a must-do activity, when you holiday at Arugam Bay and we are delighted to organize half day Kumana National Park safari tours during the outbreak of the morning sun and at the peak of the afternoon heat which you can choose from as you wish. No matter what timings you choose, you will be gracefully picked up from and dropped back at your hotel at Arugam Bay showing you the best of the national park that covers a massive area of land of 35,664 hectares. A special feature here is that an area of about 200 hectares is allocated just for the sole purpose of bird watching during the months of May and June, where you could see several different species of birds that fly here to hibernate. This is also one of the reasons why exploring the Kuman National Park is one of the most popular activities amongst both the local and foreign tourists to the area.
Our Kumana National Park Safari Tour doesn’t just cover bird watching, you can also enjoy splendid moments of seeing several species of reptiles, and turtles as well as capture memorable moments of seeing a large number of wild animals in the area.
