About
Yala National Park boasts one of the densest populations of leopards in the world, and this great-value safari focuses on the spotted predator. At dawn and dusk, your driver/guide will search exclusively for leopards: Outside those times, look for elephants, sloth bears, crocodiles, monkeys, deer, and more. Choose between morning, afternoon, extended morning, and full-day tours, all with hotel transfers. The full-day option includes a picnic breakfast and lunch.

    Yala National Park
    Stop: 4 hours
    We are one of leading tour service provider in Yala Since 1984. Park Gate is opens at 6 AM and we are ready to drive then.  First Try is to get in to the park as one of first Jeeps. That will give us maximum opportunities everyday.  Early morning first 2 hours and the day end last 2 hours is the golden hours for the leopard spotting.  Therefore we will not waste our time with the common animals or birds within this time.   After this Golden Hours we will change the driving style in to explaining process and stop by every single thing we see on our route.  Within this tours to Yala, Big 3 is Leopard, Sloth Bear & Elephants. Other than that Many other different animal like Crocodiles, Monkeys, Deers, Birds, Jackals, Mongoose..... Many people in there reviews mentioned that the Yala is very busy, I have to say this. We will not drive only the main road of the park. Over set of Toyota Hilux/Toyota Land Cruiser Jeeps are able to Drive any road in the park and we will.

The best of all national parks I've visited ❤
It's the most beautiful place. Of course to complete the whole you need a full day and be get ready to bathe some dusts😊
But it's totally worth. You will find wide range of animals with very close proximity. Love the sights.

I booked a full day safari with Shehan and it was incredible. I was picked up by my driver from my hotel at 5am and we headed straight to the park. The driver was very friendly and knowledgeable and really wanted me to see all the animals. He was in constant communication with other drivers so we knew were to find the animals. We got to see 3 leopard's up close plus elephants, monkeys, buffalo etc. He also prepared a full Sri Lankan lunch which was delicious. I couldn't reccomend this enough. 10 out of 10

We had about 3 hours here on a Jeep safari and really enjoyed it. The jeeps picked us up from our hotel at 2.30pm, the park closes strictly at 6pm. I could have easily done a whole day here! We had fantastic time.

We did two safaris with this company. Both safaris were superb. Driver was friendly and highly knowledgeable.
Don't want to pay high price. It is very reasonable. So we can recommend Shehan Safari for all.

Best tour in Yala
Feb 2020 • Couples
We had a great time with Yasanka! He really cared about us enjoying our experience, was good at spotting animals and driving over to them for us to get a good view. We were lucky enough to see a leopard, elephants, sloth bears and more the morning we went. His Jeep was very comfortable. Reasonably priced.

Awesome safari tour
Jan 2020
I was having a safari with Yasanka, he is a very experienced driver and knows Yala very well. He was always communicating with other drivers in person and over the phone to find out where animals are. And we were very lucky to see a leopard. Also, i was lucky to be the only client in the car and binoculars were all mine. Highly recommended, that is the unique experience.

Pricy tour, not differentiated from the rest
Feb 2020 • Friends
Overall not worth the price premium. There are multiple safari tour operators offering at 6000 LKR which is a big difference. Despite them being ranked no.1 on trip advisor, Our guide/driver did not have an advantage over other cars. Everyone was huddling at the same location. We also didn’t see Leopards or Sloth Bears, which the tour name or description makes no mention of this. Only 1/6 tours saw a leopard. Therefore DO NOT expect to see one. You will just see elephants crocodiles peacocks buffalos from afar.
