Yala - the home of the Leopard, the Bear, the Elephant and countless birds. While elephants and birds are a plenty, only the lucky will see the leopard and the bear. We were very lucky with the tour with Shehan Safaris! Our driver is fantastic. A place for those who wish to relax close to nature. Well, its an exciting kind of relaxation where you leave the hotel before dawn! However, please remember, its their home, not our playground.

Amazing park. It wasn't too busy with jeeps either. We saw elephants, leopards, mongooses, wild boar, water buffalo, crocodiles and lots of beautiful birds. We paid for a private jeep. We were also very lucky to have one of the best driver with us and he helped us spot the wildlife.

Ideal place to marvel at Asian elephants in their natural habitat. We went during mating season and saw hundreds of elephants- in large groups. Most of the park is left untouched by humans which is encouraging to see.
