Long drive from Galle. We left at 3.30am but was worth it to get to the Yala gate at 6am. Saw loads of animals including one leopard, elephants, a python, all kinds of birds. Yala was really a wild place. Connection was good and the safari vehicle perfect for this trip. I think it was good value to go from Galle. It's a long day so be prepared for it but worth it if you enjoy getting out into nature.

водитель забрал вовремя прям у нашего отеля в Мириссе. Быстро доехали до Ялы ( выбрали платной трассе за 300 рупиев). Примерно за 12 км до Ялы нас пересадили в джипы и выдали ланч бокс. Очень достойный завтрак: яйцо, сендвич, печенька, кекс, орехи, бананы и вода. Преимущество брони Экскурсии здесь - вы везде проезжаете без очереди и заезжаете в парк первыми. Само сафари длилось 3 часа, хотя обычно утреннее - 4 часа (за это минус балл). Леопарда ждали 20 минут - не вышел, но один участник видел его ухо). Так же видели много разных птиц, мангустов (2 шт), крокодил (1 и далеко), слоны (5 шт) - их водитель выцепил по пути на водопой, очень близко, олени (2 шт и далеко), кабанчиков и буйволов в ассортименте. Когда спросили про медведя - водитель сказал, что их в парке всего 4 и не найти. Попросили показать чёрных обезьян - водитель их нашёл за пределами парка, за что большое спасибо. В целом впечатления очень хорошие, но берите бинокли! У водителя был один, а все животные очень далеко.
