Easy to book, great clear communication throughout the booking process. Our driver was a lovely guy and did a great job driving us round the national park pointing out animals that we would never have spotted. Also provided lovely lunch. As much as our driver tried we didn't spot a leopard that day but all in all really enjoyable!!

What a great day! Our driver, Udara, was the best! He picked us up on time and once arriving at the park he got our tickets really fast making us the second Jeep to get into the park! Within 10 minutes he spotted a leopard for us! We were ecstatic!! Udara has a great eye for spotting the animals, we were so impressed and extremely happy to have seen as much as we did. He was also very knowledgeable and answered all our questions. Where usually all the Jeeps follow each other and surround the animals, which wasn't very nice to see - Udara took us on completely different ways from all the other Jeeps meaning we got one to one encounters with the animals, especially a beautiful leopard and some very friendly elephants! We saw pretty much all the animals we had come to see except for the bears, but after seeing so much we were not disappointed! Some photos included All in all, we are super happy with the day we had and all the beautiful animals we got so see!

Our hotel, pearl city hotel, organises the safari for us, so honestly I didn't know before receiving the link that we had used this company. The hotel manager arranged this for us, from prices we had heard the price was ok and we chose a safari from 04.30 to 12.00. thinking back the shorter version would have been enough as the extra time is for a toilet break and walk on the beach and after that break the sun is very high so most animals are hiding. We had a good experience in the sense that it was a smooth organisation and we saw all animals including 4 leopards. First leopard we were mostly alone and that was amazing. Second experience was a nightmare for us and the leopards. Imagine at least 50 4x4 engines roaring, even bumping into each other ! Basically tracking the leopards to force them to cross the roads. Horrible for the animals and not great for us I am sorry I was part of this and this should be forbidden by the park authorities. This was quite disappointing, doesn't reflect this company or this driver but more what is considered normal in Yala national park. Also the roads in the park are perfectly good so electric vehicles would be perfect.
