I contacted Shehan Safari to organise our safaris in Yala and Bundala National Parks. It was a private safari for two of us. I had contacted a couple of other agencies as well, but Shehan was the only one to respond to my e-mail queries and he patiently answered all my questions and help book the safari we need.
The first was a day long safari in Yala. The driver was on time at 5 am. He was very courteous and spoke very good English. He knew the park very well. We spotted a leopard, a sloth bear and an elephant, all thanks to his spotting and driving skills. Our jeep was the only one we could spot where there was an assistant in addition to the driver. The lunch and breakfast provided by the team were quite tasty.
Second was a morning safari in Bundala and the driver was sent and that was also very enjoyable trip. We spotted lots of birds and the driver is a decent in spotting and identifying the birds.
My only minor complaint is that our jeep had some starting trouble, but the problem went away as the day progressed. I hope they can get that problem looked into at the earliest.
