Yala National Park is one of the best national park in Asia to watch closely Leopard, Elephants and Special Kinds of Birds. And we do arrange also nice Tours to watch birds to see including flamingos. And also you can go with our tours to Udawalawa Park too which is also becoming a famous safari place in Sri Lanka where it is possible to see animals with lots of elephants. We are arranging these tours successfully with lots of recommended from the customers and now almost since 15 years we are doing our service and it is not over telling that we are having the most best experiences on this subject as we have born to this Jungle area with the blessings of the nature to grow up with all its advantages. The Crocodile Hunter "Steve Irwin" who we can’t forget ever because I could have 9 days spent with him in the jungle while Mr. Steve was preparing an international program called "Island of Snake" and I was lucky that I was selected for his work around here with my Land Rover Jeep.

With the help of TripAdvisor, I identified Ajith Safari Jeep Tours to take me, my husband and my son on a safari to Yala National Park. I spoke with Ajith personally, and he gave some excellent advice. We chose the 7 hour safari (5 am - 12 noon) and were allocated Ishara as our driver. We left Ajith Safari Lodge... More

We booked two tours with Ajith, one of Yala and one of Udawalawe. We had different drivers/guide for both, which reflected the moods of the parks. Yala was much busier, with queues commonplace if one of the big animals had been sighted. Our driver was very quick, and had good communication with his colleagues, which meant that we saw leopards... More

This was our second visit to Sri Lanka (and Yala) and the second time we have used Ajith and his team for our safaris. This time we had Dilan as our driver and we were very pleased indeed. We had 5 game drives and saw all sorts of wildlife, including another surprise encounter with a Sloth Bear just before the... More

Topsy turvy and jeeps sliding.. We were luck to have 5 spotting but it's really not about the leapords but the experience. Most people rate safaris on the number of leopards they spot. What's really in it to understand that wild animals will appear when they want and are not bound by your personal travel plans. As long as you... More

My family and I booked a morning safari through Ajith, his communication in the lead up to our visit was outstanding! We had 2 jeeps between the 10 of us and sadly none of us managed the elusive leopard sighting! Thanks for a fun morning out Ajith!

Woke up early for the 5.30am Yala Tour. The driver was waiting for us a few meters away from our hotel room. He helped us in and off we went. The Yala Park is huge! Loads of wild animals including elephants, deers, wild buffalos, crocodiles, loads of birds and leopards. We weren't that lucky to spot a leopard but still... More

Me and my boyfriend stayed at the lodge for 2 days earlier this month and booked an all day safari tour. Ajith, the owner of the lodge and jeep company, is very professional and super nice. We had a jeep for the 2 of us (a comfy jeep/kind of luxury), the driver Nisanka was experienced and excellent at spotting animals.... More

We booked two safaris at Udawalawe and two at Yala - all with Ajith. Our first whole day at Udawalawe was fantastic, with a really good sighting of a leopard by 7am! This is extremely rare at this national park and we were really lucky. Even without seeing the leopard, we had an amazing day seeing so many elephants, fantastic... More
