We selected this company as they offered exactly the safari we wanted to do. The communication with Shehan has been quick and easy and the whole trip has been organized within hours. We had a Full day safari at Yala national park. The guides who leaded us through the parks in Yala were excellent. They explained us many things about wildlife and Sri Lanka nature and were brilliant at spotting the animals which we would have missed without their competence. Overall we saw more game than we expected and we've been more than satisfied by the services offered by Shehan Safaris. We would happily use Shehan safaris again and highly recommend them to anyone planning a safari inYala, Bundala or Udawalawe. I have to give this excellent rating due to the professional service they offerd to us. We cant wait be back again.
We did three tours with this company. Yala National Park, Udawalawe and Bundala. We had three different drivers but each of them went the extra mile to make sure we got the most out of the trip. We saw a variety of wild life in each park and they returned only once we were completely satisfied. Since we had kids they were sensitive about our needs of breaks, toilets etc. Excellent service

Booked a 5 hour (half day) safari in Udawalawe last week and the safari took place today, timings were from 2pm-7pm and we felt we paid quite a fair bit of money to do this but we were really excited. When booking, they confirmed they would pick us up from our hotel (their office was only a 5 minute drive from our hotel) 2pm arrived and the driver hadn't arrived, at 2:10pm we decided to ring up to see where they were, the guy seemed abit surprised and asked which hotel we were at etc and said the guy was on his way. When driver finally appeared, my husband asked why were you late? Driver said 'we forgot' anyway finally on our way 2:30pm, arrive at national park ok and had 2 hours in the park, saw maybe 15 elephants at different points, water buffalo, peacocks and a couple of really small crocodile. At the minute Udawalawe is really dried up due to no rain all year and they're undertaking an invasive plant species clear up. We then left the park at 5:40pm and drove back to the hotel, driver took an unnecessary detour on the way back and made things longer but we were still back at our hotel just after 6:30pm. When making the booking I asked whether morning or afternoon were better and was told they were equally the same but now after going on the tour, I privately emailed the company and they said that everyone has to be out the park at 5:45pm so we were never going to get the full time that we paid for? Messaged the company privately and they just had excuses. Just disappointed that we spent so much money to feel like we've been robbed of an hour and to receive nothing but 'sorry for the inconvenience'. The driver was nice though and was very polite and patient and turned his engine off when near the elephant.
we will thank you for both very good safari´s in Yala and Udawalawe. A special thank you for our driver Wishwa. He was very friendly and involved. We enjoy the tours very much.
He was very happy to show us all sorts of animals. We even saw three leopards. A lot of Elephants, Crocodile, monkeys and much more. Amazing.
We can only recommend this tours with Shehan Safari.
