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.

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

The two of us spent a great full day in Yala with our driver Dilan. We were picked up on time at 5.30am in a Toyota Hilux, much less noisy and more comfortable than the Tata jeeps used by most operators. The ride was sometimes fast but always comfortable and safe. Dilan seems to know all the roads in the... More

Used Ajit safaris for an evening and morning safaris. Vehicles were new Toyota Hilux 4x4 with tyres in good conditions ( a lot of the jeeps I saw barely had an tread left). Saw 3 leopards, 4 tuskers, plenty of elephants, numerous crocodiles, plenty of birds but sadly no bears. The highlight of the trip was being charged on both... More

excellent one day safari, Ajith did everything to make our trip perfect, from breakfast on the beach to a curry lunch. Dilan , the driver, was very knowledgeable and made the whole day exciting. Ajith deserves to do well, he provided everything we needed. We would recommend him to everyone going to Yala.

I was dreading picking a safari company as had read stories about companies and sharp practices. However, my first email to ajith was replied to instantly and I felt relieved. We arrived at 4 am outside the offices. The street was pitch black. The staff arrived at 530 and we were soon on our way In a brand new wagon... More

Or Ajith Safari? Picked up at 5.30am a bit dazed and confused, it wasn’t until we were enroute to Yala that we realized we’d been picked up by Ajith Safaris?! A bit of mid-trip panic ensued, as we were worried we had hopped into the wrong jeep, however when we got to the park, our driver assured us it was... More
