We had an amazing time on the safari. Our guide Moshe was kind, professional and a fantastic guide! We saw leopards, elephants, crocodiles, toucans, monkeys and mongoose. The food was really tasty and Modhu provided water too. I would definitely recommend this trip. We enjoyed it more as we paid for a private trip so we had a lot of space in the jeep, this was really worth the money.

We had the most amazing day at Yala Safari with our driver Motto. The full day safari was definitely the right choice as the day flew by. Our driver Motto enabled us to get the closest encounters with both leopards and elephants on multiple occasions. A picnic breakfast was provided along with a wonderful curry lunch and water and juice for the day.

We spent two nights at Yala Safari Camp and did 3 safaris - two half days and one full day with Shehan Safari guided. It was a 10/10 experience - the Safari guides from Shehan Safari are also fantastic - we spent the three days with Yasha who did an AMAZING job and gave us a Safari we will never forget. He knew all the places for us to have a good chance at seeing animals and we saw pretty much everything - crocodiles, elephants, a bear, a leopard, more birds than I could count. He was very knowledgeable about the area as well as all the animals we saw and took the time to explain things to us. We also really appreciated that he took his time, didn’t rush, found off-beat tracks with no one else around and also made sure to view the animals in a humane way without disturbing them which was really important for us.

All in all an unmissable experience, I would recommend to anyone who has the chance!
