Overview
More
Yala Wild Safaris - consist of well trained, English speaking naturalists who drive the six seater luxury jeeps which capable of going in dust roads, Rock or Mud. We highly value sharing of jeeps. That will reduce the number of vehicles in the park. No middle seats. Everybody get window seats. But if you are here specially for Photography or Bird Watching we prefer you select a Private Tour Option. Pickup and Drop off free of charge from any hotel in Tissa, Kirinda, Weerawila, Kataragama & Yala Area. "Our Main objective is to give you the experience of Wild without much human interaction".

Super accomodation: room is clean, has airconditioning and is really cheap. This morning we did a morning tour and were lucky enough to spot a leopard. We would really recommend it!

Overall a great trip. A drab day with rain didn’t help things but we still saw a leopard, lots of elephants and even bears. It felt like the driver really tried hard to find us a leopard, and he came through with 30 minutes left....More

We had a wonderful experience with our guide Malith at Yala National Park. I recommend this guide for the tour! Malith has a lot of knowledge about the different animals that live in Yala National Park. A great experience!
