Wilpattu is the largest and one of the oldest National Parks in Sri Lanka. Wilpattu is among the top national parks world-renowned for its leopard (Panthera pardus kotiya) population.

    Beautiful nature spot
    I think, it would take a 3 hour drive to cover us. Mostly you can see local and foreign birds, crocodiles, iguanas, mangrove trees. But a different ecosystem. I went on a nice boat ride.

    Wonderful experience and top service!
    Me and my sister were picked up at our hotel on time and had a lovely safari. The guides were super friendly and we saw so many animals. Even on the way to the national park, we got to see an elephant that was standing like 2 meters away. Thanks for a great experience!

    Nice 3 hour safari
    Our safari was excellent. We saw a lot of animals. Among them, elephants are special. Their natural behavior is great. They live by eating grass. Saw many other animals. There were many species of deer, foxes and birds. Our driver gave us a good explanation about the animals.

    Great experience
    Had a great experience with Travceylon. It was very convenient and hassle free. The car was in good condition and comfortable. The driver Christ was always punctual and professional. He had great connections everywhere and even helped us with places to visit. We highly recommend them to anyone looking for a private tour in Sri Lanka

    Best to see wild elephants
    [20/09, 7:46 pm] 😊Poddi☺️: On a good day you can see a large herd of elephants of all sizes. It is an amazing site to see close to 60-70 wild elephants roaming around. Great scenery and can get some really good photos. You must visit here 😍 [20/09, 8:05 pm] 😊Poddi☺️: Best to see wild elephants

    Beautiful park with experienced driver also guide
    Nice park that was not crowded. We saw a lot of animals. Our driver chamara have been very nice and friendly. Chamara knows a lot about the animals in the park. We left the big roads and didn't see a lot of other jeeps.

    Kandy day tour
    Our driver/guide, Christ, was punctual, informative, and trustworthy. He had a good understanding of the best times to enter a location and helped us buy our tickets to facilitate our visits. Christo navigated the city and town roads safely and with great skill.

    Nice trip
    Yapahuwa is a 13th century rock fortress that rises about 300 feet abruptly from the plain. It was the capital of Sri Lanka for just 12 years, from 1272 to 1284. A climb to the top is highly recommended, although dawn or dusk are the best times unless you choose a cloudy day. The sun during the day can be fiercely hot. You will see interesting statues, rock carvings and frescoes. There is also a lovely temple. if you are interest to Visit ruins, you must go yapahuwa, paduwasnuwar.

    Excellent place to visit if you are in Arugam Bay
    Kumana national park is also called Yala East. It is a lot smaller than Yala and much less crowdy. We booked in Arugam Bay, which included everything: entrance fee, 4x4 and driver/guide. You stay in the park for about 4 hours. We were lucky and saw all kinds of animals among which elephants and even a leopard.

    Great safari session with experienced driver
    We had a great experience booking a safari from here. Prices are reasonable. The driver/guide spoke fluentin English and was well experienced with the park and had good driving skills. We had some great sightings including a small family of leopards.

    The perfect day!
    Absolutely amazing!! We booked on the 2:30pm tour and our driver picked us up at 1:30pm from our hotel in Sigiriya to ensure we would get there on time. We had the whole jeep to ourselves and the fun began as soon as we arrived! Our driver / guide Mr Asela was really knowledgeable and great at spotting all kinds of wildlife before we even got to the elephants. Once we arrived at the elephants we were blown away, we had so many close encounters, saw around 250 elephants including a large male with tusks and a 2 month old! Our guide was great at getting us some time alone with them as well as still keeping a respectful distance from them. As we were leaving it became apparent as to why we got there at 2:30pm instead of later, there were so many more jeeps coming into the park from around 4/5pm that it surely got quite crowded. At that later time we also saw the elephants begin to leave the grass area and head down to the water where you can’t see them, which as our guide explained they do every evening - so it is definitely best to go at 2:30pm rather than some other tours we have seen doing sunset tours! All in all I would 100% recommend this tour, they just got everything right and was worth the money to have such a special day 😊

Everything was really easy. We decided 1 day before to do a safari and everything worked. The connection with the agency via WhatsApp was relaxed. The driver was really good and the guide was a friendly and helpful guy.
Unluckily we saw "just" a lepard for 5sec and some birds... But this is nature 🤷🏽‍♀️
Would recommend this safari agency!
