Are there any tours to Bundala national park from Matara?
Or any kind of direct public bus?
No group tours. Yes you can reach it by bus (line 32 to Kataragama passes by not far from entrance) but just like any park in Lanka (except one with longer duration) the good safari times are 6-9 AM and 3-6 PM. And at night on this specific route there are buses but they're quite unpredictable, sometimes 1 x per hour. Hence not recommended to do it by bus for outbound or inbound depending on morning or afternoon safari, and it's 2 hours one way by road anyway...
All the best,
