    We had Suma and Rumesh with us for our full day safari and it was amazing! They were so nice and helpful. They took us to the secluded spots where the leopards were. We saw a sloth bear, leopards, elephants, and much more!! The lunch we had was amazing! Very very good experience. I highly recommend them!

    A great way to start 2020. We booked in for a full day tour and had Ramesh as our driver and Sumedha as our guide, both from Leopard Nest. Their knowledge of the park and the best places to spot leopards, elephants, crocodiles, water buffalos, jackals and so many others was incredible. It meant that we saw more than we could’ve imagined and made the day so memorable. The lunch served by the beach inside the Yala national park was tasty. The whole experience was above and beyond expectations. We highly recommend doing a full day tour and if you can get these two guys you’ll have an epic day!

    I am told we overpaid, at $365 for a family of 5. However, our driver from Beyond Escapes was the best! He picked us up at 0500 and stayed positive throughout the entire day no matter what was going on. He took us to hidden spots, off the beaten path, which he knew from coming to the park with his father since he was 5. He put in the extra effort to give us every opportunity to see the variety Yala has to offer. We were the only group in Yala to get focused, high quality time with a leopard on the Nov 30, 2019, full day safari. We had around 8 minutes within good distance and clear sight of a female leopard. It was the kids and wife favorite memory from the trip. We also saw sloth bears up close, tons of warthogs, elephants, water buffalo, ground monitors, peacocks, eagles, jeckles, deer, some crocodiles, etc. etc. During the mandatory 1200 to 1400 break in Yala, we were the only ones to have a full meal provided. Our driver got us to the break point a few minutes earlier than most other groups. He set up a table and high quality home cooked meal at the beach with wonderful mountain and ocean views. The food was ample and high quality. There were also plenty of waters and juice boxes in the cooler for the trip. Despite rain during lunch and into the afternoon, we still headed out for a productive and enjoyable afternoon. Driver was safe, professional, and good with our kids. He enjoys his job and it shows. It was an exciting and memorable trip.

    We really had a perfect day! the driver was very professional and had lots of experience in doing safaris. we have seen many elephants, three leopards, a bear, lots of dears and lots of other animals. also the bird life in the park is fantastic we booked the full day Safari and we really didn’t regret it. the picnic lunch at the beach was very nice and tasty. The whole day was an unforgettable experience!

    Safari was superb and they had arranged both a driver and a guide unlike some of the other safaris. This was key because the guide (chooty) was very knowledgeable and would regularly keep me posted on what we were seeing as he sat with me in the back and the driver (Ramesh) could focus on the driving. They communicated with each other very well! Chooty worked really really hard using his understanding of animal habits to ensure we saw the elusive Leopard and we did which was glorious!The driver picked me up from the hotel promptly and dropped me back and his wife prepared a really tasty Sri Lankan lunch for us which we eat during the Safari on some picnic tables they had packed in the car. Both Chooty and Ramesh seemed to really care about the animals and their conservation which was really nice to see! Finally, they had a pair of binoculars with them which made spotting the animals really easy as I have been on other safaris, it's difficult without getting too close to see them properly. Definitely recommend using them :-) see photos!

    fantastique paysages aux couleurs incroyables , des animaux à foison . les léopards se font rares et ne vont pas chercher la compagnie humaine , il est donc difficile d'en apercevoir étant donné l'étendue du parc. dommage que le safari soit fait en 4/4 diesel hyper bruyants et polluants !!!

    The safari in yala was fantastic. Our driver and naturalist took us to places which has historical value and told stories about those places. Not only about wildlife, we learnt about nature too. Love all the giant guys, birds, and beautiful beach area. Thank you Beyond Escapes for your great service and many thanks to dulani who cordinated our tour.👍

    The safari tour was awesome experience for us. We saw lots of animals.The driver and naturalist were so friendly and well knowledgeable. Most important thing is we were lucky enough to spot a clear and some close look of a Srilankan leopard. As well as saw large herds of deers and wild boars..... Such a wonderful safari😍
