Actually the safari was good. The guide and the driver were super. Why just 2stars? Because it’s overpriced for the rides. Still you pay your entrance fee and the tip. As a solo Traveller too expensive for a four safari tour. It would be great to have a snack included. I’d recommend book the ride to the park and the ride to Ella separately and also the tour. If you don’t mind the money, go for this offer.

Alles hat reibungslos geklappt und die Driver/Guids waren sehr nett und haben uns jeden Wunsch erfüllt. In der Beschreibung wird man zwar darauf hingewiesen das die Eintrittsgelder nicht inkludiert sind, trotzdem waren wir enttäuscht das das Ticket für den Yala NP nochmal 30€ p.P. on top gekostet hat. Das Preisleistungsverhältnis stimmt so einfach nicht mehr.

Amazing day combined with the convenience of a transfer to Ella! Picked up promptly at 5 AM, and driven to Yalla. The Safari was incredible! Our guide was amazing! He helped us spot tons of animals, and the most gorgeous scenery in the park! Our highlight was when he found us a leopard! So rare! We were so lucky! After the Safari, our driver took us to our hotel in Ella. Start to finish was approximately 8 hours. Highly recommend!
