Well worth the money
This review is well over-due. I went on a solo trip to Sri Lanka back in August of this year. I booked my trip with Shehan Safari for the Yala Adventure park before my trip, even though I’ve heard you can find less expensive jeep safari trips on-site. Even though Shehan was a bit more expensive, I have no regrets! I was the only one in the Jeep and my guide, Yasanka, was friendly and knowledgable. He has been a tour guide for about 4 years and knows the park well. He made recommendations on where we should go and when in order to be able to see the animals I wanted. We started with the leopard early in the morning since they are easier to find around that time. Although, there is no guarantee on animal sitings, we were able to get up close and personal with a leopard, families of elephants, wild boars, birds, etc. I had the 6-hour tour and they provided me with a snack (sandwich, cookies, water), which was an added plus. I highly recommend Shehan Tours (especially Yasanka!).
