Safari was organized smoothly. We came from Ella to Yala at 6 am and the Jeep was already ready to go. Saw great elephants in the park and afterwards had the most delicious Rice and Curry at the restaurant where we met cooked by his father.

We had the perfect day today with our guide manu. He picked us up at 4.15 so we were among the first jeeps to enter the park. Don't expect to be the only ones but with Manu you can be sure that he will do anything to give you a great experience and as much time off the beaten paths and away from the other jeeps as possible. He put in a lot of effort to provide us with the best chances for seeing wildlife, from crocodiles through bears and even two leopards. We got enough food and water and could always decide for ourselves whether we wanted to stay longer at a certain place or move on. All in all there is nothing that we would have changed and we can highly recommend booking with Manu yala safari jeep tours. Btw, manu sister has a wonderful little inn in tissamahara, it's called okin reach restaurant and provides the perfect basis for the safaris.

Our family of 5 did a 7 hour tour with Manu, who personally accompanied us on our safari. Excellent communication regarding pick up time and they were right on time at 5am (!) which ensured our number 4 / 5 starting position and quick access into the park. Manu knows what he is doing and is committed to good service for his guests, that is very clear. We saw leopards and many other animals during our morning trip. They did a great job getting us to the animals quickly and with a good view (ahead of the crowd). Manu helped with other aspects of our stay and is very friendly and helpful. Our eleven year old told him after the trip,”this was the best experience of my whole trip”. Great experience for the whole family! Thanks again Manu.
