    The trip itinerary simply does not work. The driver arrived early so our trip started 10 minutes before the pickup time 7:30am in the itinerary. We were told by the driver that we had to enter the Yala Park before 3:00pm. So after more than 2-hours drive from Colombo to Galle, we only stayed at Galle Fort for 15 minutes and visited Stilt Fishermen Weligama for 5 minutes. It then took us almost 4 hours to a restaurant near Yala where we could only pack something before changing to the Safari Jeep for another 45-minutes drive to the Park. We could not see any wild animal in the park because of the hot weather in the afternoon. We left the Park at 5:30 pm half-an-hour before the close time to the same place we packed lunch for dinner. After dinner a very poor one, it took us almost 5 hours back to Colombo and we arrived hotel at 12:30 am expected to be 11:00pm in the itinerary. The traffic was not bad throughout the day and the tour itinerary is simply a trap. One should never go into this trap again.
