Wonderful experience in this park, we never saw so many different wild animals and birds in a same place at the same time. We advice to take a 7 hours tour to take your time and enjoy the quietness and spend time really watching the animals. Leopards, Monkeys, Elephants, Crocodiles, Toucanos, Turtles, Buffalos, Cameleons, many type of birds. Highly recommend the tour with these guys.

Beautiful park to visit. I highly recommend a morning Safari as you will be able to see more animals, have less people in the park and avoid the heat. We did a Safari with our 2 year old child and it was a fun day for all of us. Excellent experience!

This was such an amazing experience!! However seeing leopards, elephants is all about luck since they are living there in the wild. We had a good driver who followed fresh footsteps to locate them and after we found one, the family of the elephant joined us so we were literally surrounded by those beautiful animals. We had a excellent tour.. Highly recommend the tour with Ajith Safaris!

We had read a number of reviews that said this operator is particularly goof so we went with them. Communication was easy quick to reply via whatsapp. Our driver was very good at spotting animals, we found 22 different animals and 14 bird species and caught a slight glimpse of 2 leopards during first two hours. He was determined that we see more so he kept driving until we did. I really enjoyed the safari.

Everything was good, our friendly driver was professional from the pick up at the hotel to the evening. The highlight was we saw 4 leopards during the tour. I absolutely recommend Ajith Safaris for your experience in Yala.

Can you arrange transportation to/from Yala National Park?

Yes sure!

This will cost US $60 per 4-person car, per one-way transfer. Please do indicate in your booking form if you require this transfer.

Which Yala National Park Blocks do you visit?

Most of our safari partners visit Block 1 as that is the one that is closest to the towns of Tissamaharam and Kataragama where most of the hotels are. It is also the block which has the most wildlife. Block 5 is visited on occasion. The other blocks require special permission for entry. If you have a certain block in mind, do let us know and we can see if we can arrange!
