What you'll do
We will start the Jeep tour from your hotel in Tissamaharama, Yala, Kataragama or main entrance of the Park near the car park. Once we go through the standard process of entry into the park, we will venture into the untamed wild of Yala which is infamous for the Leopards and Elephant Gathering. Soon we will make our way to the banks of the stunning Parks Reservoirs. You will get to see groups of crocodiles resting in the banks or swimming about the lakes, vibrant birds of prey going fishing and also many other birds and animals including herds of elephants, leopards visiting to quench their thirst and take a rest. The sight of elephants is the real treat at Yala and their unique scent is a good indicator to choose the trails where you are guaranteed to see as many Elephants, Leopards as possible. Upon completion of the tour, we will bring you back to the park entrance or to hotel.
My name is Shehan and I am a local of Tissamaharama, Sri Lanka who worked in tourism industry as a site guide and safari operator for 6 years and I have spent the past six years as an teacher in my village just 4 km from Tissamaharama. I am fluent in English and enjoy meeting people from all over the world. I am passionate about helping the less fortunate children in my village and offer them free English lessons. I also enjoy sharing safari tours, my culture and country with foreigners and I want to give them a good tour of Yala and Tissamaharama.
