They arranged our pick up from Ella and all the transportation and safaris (Udawalawe, Yala and Bundala) for a fair price. It was our first experience in a safari and we absolutely loved it! Saw plenty of animals except the elusive leopard. 3 safaris in 2 days plus the travel was a bit exhausting, nonetheless we highly recommend Malith and his company for giving us a great experience.

Overall good experiece: good communication while booking the tours, experieced guide/driver, saw a lot of animals. And we were pretty demanding participants with one wildlife/ornitology expert in our group. Just be prepared that all safaris to Yala and Bundala are Jeep Safari and no walking. This was a bit tiring for us.

I decided on Yala Wild Safaris because of the good reviews, and I am super happy with my decision. I contacted Malith back and forth to arrange the trip, and right from the very beginning I can tell that Yala Wild Safaris offers a very good service. Super fast response. For the first safari, we did the Yala National Park for one full day. Malith made sure that we left our accommodation at 4:30 am sharp, and he was there even before that (punctuality is a big plus for me). The reason we left so early was so we could reach the ticket booth earlier that everybody else and amongst the first to enter the park too (which we did ). I think all the safaris operators are familiar with the leopards’ behavior, but what make Malith more special is because he is actually tracking all these leopards. He could tell you which leopard that we are looking at. He has a good eyes too, he could spot the leopard behind the trees and bushes, and I was like “he? what? where?”. He was super patience with me and my brother (thank you Malith). I think Malith took us everywhere in the park. There’re times when we did not meet anybody else (which is so great). He took us to a great spot for our snack break (I love that spot). Second day, we visited Udawalawe National Park for half day (for the elephant). Unfortunately, Malith was not our guide, but we had a great time too. The guides were super super patience with me. I was so excited to see the elephants so close, and the guides decided to stay in one spot for a while and let me took 1,000 pics of the elephants. Most of the time, we’re the first to reach one spot and the last to leave. In summary, Yala Wild Safaris made my first safari an incredible experience for sure. Their service is beyond expectations. I think all people must understand that: in safari there is no guarantee that you will see the wildlife that you wanted to see. It is wildlife after all. But we're lucky enough to see the leopard, elephants, Sri Lanka national bird (junglefowl), green bee-eater, a lot of peacocks, the grey langur, and so so much more. Btw, Malith will bring his own DSLR camera and he will share his pics of the leopard with you. OK, which other operators will do that for you? Thank you Malith and team for the incredible experience.

A
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.
Q
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.

If you have a certain block in mind, do let us know and we can see if we can arrange!
