The park surrounds the Kaudulla reservoir. The park is also situated on an elephant migratory path (an Elephant corridor), which makes this park even more interesting. Best time to see Elephants in park is the early morning and late evening. Herds of elephants become a common site on the dried lakebed during this time of the day.
Kaudulla was declared a National park in April 1, 2002 by the Sri Lankan government. Many plant and grass species grow well during the rainy season whilst an abundance of food and water, even in the dry period, attracts a large number of herbivorous mammals to the park.
