We did 2 Safari’s with this company. And the same driver with us. Driver he is very friendly and kind. We saw a variety of animals. Some kind of birds also. They arrange some Sri Lankan lunch. It was superb quality and not much spice.

It was a really great experience. We booked the half day safari and it was absolutely worth it. We were very lucky with the animals we saw (lepards, crocodiles, elephants, peacocks, Buffalo ...) in such a short time. Our guide, Lakshan, was punctual, very good driver and extremely experienced. He always knew where to drive next and made it a very special day. Thank you very much ! We would always recommend it to friends and family

We booked an evening safari with Daya and we couldn’t be happier about it! Our driver, Yasanka had great eyes so he saw the leopard before anyone else! We will recommend it for sure!!!

Went with Daya Safari twice and the experience was amazing. Choose Samitha or Thanura and you will not be disappointed. Amazing Sightings and the drive was a peaceful one in the park. We went on a safari to the Block 5 in Yala as well.

Helpful Questions from Other Travellers

Q
Can you arrange transportation to/from Yala National Park?
A
Yes sure! If you're coming from any other parts of Sri Lanka (e.g. Colombo) to Yala National Park for your safari, or you need to head from Yala National Park to any other parts of Sri Lanka after your safari, we can provide a private car transfer. 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?
A
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!
