          HI, I see you went to both Yala and Udawale, how far away are they from each other? We have booked and overnight at Udawale and I wondered if it would be better to do them both on consecutive days or to space them apart. We are staying in Bentota and I have no idea how far these places are away so need to consider getting there also. Any advise would be greatly appreciated, we will be travelling with an 8 year old.
