  • Unfortunately we didn‘t had a great experience with this tour operator. The tour did not match with the tour which was promised. It seems that we got a quite unexperienced driver. He just knows some animal names and did rarely spoke to us. For finding spots, he was relying on mobile phone and other drivers. We think he does not know a lot about wildlife. Also he drove like crazy on normal streets and the car could use a new set of tires. The first few hours was a big rush through the park for finding a leopard. Sorry, but driving 50 km/h (Limit ist 25) and almost run over animals is not respectful to the nature. At least, our driver started to drive slower, as soon as we asked for it. - Anyway, the most part of the tour stayed a uncomfortable ride on a very bumpy road. After all, the park itself is really great. To see the animals (Elephants, Birds, Reptiles, Varan, Crocodiles, Buffalos, ...) and the impressive nature, is a great experience. When the driver is not rushing, you‘re going to see a lot of small things. Please really ask for a experienced driver at a good company and you will enjoy the national park...
  • Me and my friend visited Yala in the month of March 2018.After going through many positive reviews on internet we decided to finalize with Big 3 safaris managed by Mr. Malith Gunarathna. As we both were female travelers, we must have asked him endless queries for 2 months prior to the visit. All were patiently answered by Malith. That gave us a feeling of confidence in his services. The rooms were lovely rooms and we had a comfortable stay for 2 nights. Malith and his wife were there to serve us all the time. Both of them are very polite and cordial. He himself was the naturalist for the safari's. Myself being a wild life lover, the morning safari was a wonderful experience. We started at 4am from the hotel. Our breakfast packs were carried along with. Because of him we could enjoy a many sightings (photos attached). He gave us an ample opportunity for photography at every spot. From our conversation I got to know that he is conducting a leopard study for the past couple of years which itself indicates his love for wildlife and that his venture means a lot to him than just business. I would highly recommend his services to everyone. Glad to have met them. They were perfect hosts. Hope to meet you in the future. Best wishes for your study on leopards.
