Safari – Uda Walawe National Park

Uda Walawe is a 308 square kilometer National Park close to Hambantota. About 700 Elephants call Uda Walawe their home and if you are lucky you will also see a leopard. The reservoir in the middle of the national park is inhabited by crocodiles and different types of water birds. The elephant transit home five kilometres west of the park entry takes care of elephant orphans ans is definitely worth a visit as well.

Stilt Fishing

One of the most authentic South Coast Sri Lankan activities is the famous Stilt Fishing. For decades, local fisherman have sat on their stilts fishing over the coral to catch food for their families and sell to the markets. Hangtime offers an experience where you get to take part in the famous everyday practice with a local fisherman. You get a tuk-tuk to Sudu, Gune and Indika’s house where you will each be given a fishing rod (stick with hook) and sent to one of their many stilt’s about 5 minutes walk away. Gune will quickly show you the technique and then the rest is up to you. After getting the iconic photo and hopefully a few fish, you will go back to their house where Indika will cook your catch for you (and some extras caught by Gune).
