Yala National Park

Inaugurated in 1938 as a National Park, the elite British previously used this area as a hunting ground. Today it has five blocks of wildlife sanctuary, two of which are open to the public. A jeep safari to the Yala National Park will present you with thrilling experiences of crashing monkeys on trees, peacocks dressed in their finest frocks and best of all, cunning leopards sliding quickly through the landscape.

How they experienced it

If you have never been to Sri Lanka before then I highly recommend this company. Tell them what you want to do and they will arrange it all and ensure you are given the best deals. There is a lot of hidden costs in temple visits and safaris for example and Bluelanka has a great network and will listen to your needs and never compromise on costs.
