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.
We had a brilliant afternoon safari to Bundala National Park with Yala Wild Safaris. Our driver Chula was incredibly knowledgable about all the wildlife and could name every bird species that we saw - and there were many! The scenery was beautiful, the place was heaving with birds and we also saw a wide range of other wildlife including crocodiles, buffalo, tortoises, hates, elephants, sea turtles and monkeys. One of the highlights was seeing a fish eagle catch a fish then fly down onto the track, landing about two metres behind our safari truck!
It was a very quiet park which was great, we only saw one or two other trucks on our trip.
An amazing experience.
We had a great day tour organised by Malith and driven by Manju . We had been on a half day tour with Manju the day before to Bundala and it was good to be with the same guide again. Manju was great guide, skilled driver and knowledgable about the wildlife . We were lucky today see 4 leopards. Manju had excellent knowledge of the park and wildlife and I feel due to his expertise and patience we saw so many animals and biirds during the day. He knew the names of all the birds and had a bird guide which was very interesting to read more details about the birds as we spotted them.
Truly a wonderful experience. Highly recommend Day Safari to Yala and half day safari to Bundala National Park.
I booked a morning half day tour of Yala and afternoon tour of Bundala. I opted for breakfast and lunch to be provided as I assumed that there would be few, if any, food places at either park. I was collected promptly by my driver and taken to Yala. There was a huge queue of jeeps waiting to enter the park, but one inside, they dispersed. I saw loads of animals, but not the elusive leopard, and had my breakfast on the beach. What I didn't realise was that there would be a few hours between the tours, so I was dropped back at my accommodation with lunch, which was home cooked Sri Lankan food and enough for 3 people! This did break up the day somewhat so I wasn't disappointed. I was collected in the afternoon and taken to Bundala. I was lucky to have a park ranger with me, who pointed out loads of birds and animals. The park itself was really interesting with different landscapes and a sand dune which we drove up to find a stunning cove behind. I was dropped back at my accommodation around 13.5 hours after my initial pick up having had a great day. The booking process was easy and all communication with Yala Wild was great.
