Full description

Your experience begins with a pickup from your accommodation in either the Galle, Unawatuna, Weligama or Mirissa areas. From there, relax on your drive to Yala National Park, home to 44 varieties of mammals and 215 bird species. Meet your private guide and climb into a sturdy 4x4 vehicle. Enjoy sunrise at the park — the ‘Golden Hours’ of the day — and explore the light forests, scrubs, grasslands, lagoons, and magnificent range of animals. Following the safari, there will be a Picnic Lunch before the drive to Udawalawe Elephant Transit Home. Next, stop at the Elephant Transit Home during feeding hours and take a closer look at hundreds of wild elephant babies. After enjoying the Elephant Transit Home Arriving Udawalawe National Park in the afternoon allows you to explore from 3 PM until sunset when the park closes at 6 PM. Search for the world’s most concentrated number of elephants, spotted deer, jackals, wild boar, wild buffalo, crocodiles, and many other animals as your knowledgeable guide and driver expertly navigates the vast area and roads. After the safari, journey back to your point of origin to be dropped off back to your accommodation.

We had a great day exploring the two national parks. Our guide Nalaka was incredible and with his 13 years experience as a safari guide managed to find not only a leopard but also a rarely seen bear! If we ever needed anything he went above and beyond to make sure we were comfortable. We couldn't recommend this tour more!

Très belle activité où nous avons pu faire 2 parc en un avec suffisamment de temps sur place pour visiter Yala (étant le parc où nous avons observé le plus d’animaux) et Udawalawe.
