Some questions - Is March the right season to visit Minneriya national Park, is it worth visiting compared to Yala.
What sort of price are we looking at for a a driver to be with us until Kandy.
Any suggestions for hotel or guest house at beginning and also at end.
How do we get from Ella to Tissa - is a driver needed or could we use other transport, train or bus.
Would you bother with a Yala safari as well as Minneriya
