Really enjoyed my safari. Superb Company to vist Yala and Bundala parks. Our driver is fantastic and know where to take you for animals. They're experts in ingnore the traffic and drive in private areas of the park, which giving feeling wild life. Good Jeeps. Earliest starting company. We saw 02 Leopards and Elephants too in our Full day Leopard Safari.

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

We chose safari to Bundala and Yala. There were 14 of us and we all enjoyed it very much indeed. It was perfect and very professional. Organisation, guides, punctuality, as well as driving along hard and Yala roads were of the highest quality. Perfect, professional team. We recommend the company and comfort of 4x4 Jeep land cruisers. Group of friends in Germany.

We used the services of Shehan Jeep safari in December 2016. We stayed at Cinnamon Yala, but organized the jeeps separately (privately). We had 2 jeeps as private tour as we had total of 9 in our group. I would recoommend private tour instead of shared. We had 2 safari tours over two mornings. First was to Yala, and next day to Bundala National Park. Both tours were excellent and I can highly recommend using Shehan Jeeps. See the details of the two tours below. Morning tour to Yala: Jeeps arrived on-time prior to 5am start. Both jeeps are in excellent condition (Toyota Hilux). Most importantly, the drivers Waruna and Nadun (I hope I remembered the names correctly) were very knowledgeable about the park and were excellent guides. They did all the paper work at the Park gate, and off we went. Due to the expertise of Waruna, we could see the Leopard as well (our jeep spoted and saw it first, and then couple of other jeeps which came after us also could see it). Altogether we saw, Elephants, Bear and Jeopard and various other animals such as Deer, Water Buffalo etc. Waruna's jeep had complementary binoculars which was great. But the other jeep didn't. Next day morning safari to Bundala National Park: Because we were so satisfied with the safari to Yala, I booked them for the following day morning as well to Bundala. It was two separate jeeps (with different drivers) who came for that. But that was okay because again, both the jeeps were in excellent condition and both the drivers (Dilan and Palitha) were excellent in their knowledge and service. Bundala is great park full of birds and very picturesque scenery. We only saw birds there (although they have elephants and our drivered did their best to locate the elephant herd) but that was really worthwhile experiance. It is very different park to Yala and consist of different type of lanscape (grasslands, Lagoods, creeks, Sand dunes, cliffs overlooking the beach etc.). while on the cliff, Dilan pointed out a Turtle in the water which we could not have spotted ourselves. Dilan also took photos of the birds for us (using iphone but through the binoculars). Overall great company to book the private jeep tours.
