Incredible day in the Sri Lankan wilderness

I had an amazing day at the Yala National Park. As I am travelling alone I booked this only for myself and I had the whole safari car, and one wonderfully knowledgeable guide, to myself. It was very VIP service. The price was the cheapest I had found anywhere locally or on the internet. The driver and guide both really tried their best to get us to spot a leopard. Driver was constantly on the phone to other drivers to ask if any leopards had been spotted. With all this we did indeed spot a beautiful leopard about 5 metres from our car. Breathtaking!! His amazing driving and my guides incredible knowledge made this the best tour I have yet been on.

Safari was great although more expensive than organising direct through lodge. Guide was knowledgable and helpful. Vegetarian Lunch was excellent. Fortunate to see lots of wildlife including 2 leopards.
