3hr sunrise tour vs day trip

We are traveling to Yala for just a day as on a tight schedule and was wondering if we were better to do the full day tour or the 3 hr sunrise tour. I assume we would see more animals in the morning. What would we miss by not doing the full day tour. We are traveling in April. Thanks

Hi there,

Not much. Between 9 AM and 3 PM there is hardly wildlife to be seen due to the heat, hence safari gamers then relax in/near their jeep in a fenced area around the park bungalows and have picknick. Basically a day tour is a morning drive and afternoon drive combined with in between 6 wasted hours.

All the best,
