OK we didn't see the leopards but we saw just about everything else. Elephants, water buffalo, mongoose, viper, crocodiles, pelican, wild boar, deer, monkeys, bee eaters, hornbill, and more. Christine put forward an itinerary which we agreed to which was pick up from Polhena at 8.30 am, drive to Yala with 3 stops to sample roadside giant coconut milk, try curd with treacle from the treacle palm, and a short stay at a restaurant close to Yala for a light lunch. We then spent about 5 hours in the park but staying away from all the tourists. The Great thing about Sanjay is his ability to take routes inside the park that most of the other safari companies can't. His vehicle can go places the others can't which means you see more, a lot more. You can stand up in the back to take great photos and films. Also Sanjay and the tracker can speak to you all the time explaining things where in some of the other vehicles the driver is isolated and does not speak to to you. Our trip was a 1 day trip and was very long getting home at 10.00 pm but well worth it. Do not look any where else. This is the best safari tour company in Yala.

We took our two year old son on a half day safari with Lanka tracker. We were hesitant taking him as two year old tantrums tend to get the better if him. Our son immediately took to sanjaya and became best buddies very quickly. Both sanjaya and Christine went right out of their way to make our day a memorable experience. Sanjaya has a wealth of experience and is keen to share it. It was great to learn not only about the animals but about the local way of life in Sri Lanka. We saw many different animals and really enjoyed ourselves. Sanjaya is a very generous and genuine person. Thanks guys!!

I cannot say enough nice things about Sanjaya and Christine of Lanka Tracker. If you are visiting the area, you *must* book a tour with them! First of all, Christine did such a helpful job organizing our trip details. Not just the time we spent on tour, but even the parts of our trip that happened without their involvement. She just went completely above and beyond. And Sanjaya is the perfect guide - so friendly, easy going and knowledgeable. We enjoyed every minute of our tours around Yala and Udawalawe. He was also absolutely great with our kids (4 and 6). And his wonderful truck is without comparison on the trails. Just a fantastic trip all around. Thank you! From Sandra, Brad, Barrett and Jovie.

We had a wonderful safari in Yala National Park with Sanjaya! He is a very good driver (on the bumpy roads as well as in the city traffic jam), gives intersting explanations, and does his best to show us all the beautiful animals of the park. Great day !
