Starting from $235 USD / Adult
Set off through the wilds of Yala National Park on a photographic safari to spot elephants, sloth bear, and other indigenous wildlife. This is one of the largest and most heralded National Parks in Sri Lanka and you’ll explore it in truly rugged fashion. On your way, stop at the renowned Jetwing Yala Hotel to enjoy a traditional high tea. Upon arrival at Yala, you’ll hop into a 4x4 Safari Jeep, along with a local guide and park expert, and bound across the unspoiled terrain on a three-hour wildlife expedition. Yala is home to 44 mammal species and 215 bird species, so keep watch for elephants, sloth bear, deer, wild boar, colorful birds and exotic birds of prey. Snap awe-inspiring photos; learn about the wildlife spotted along the way; and marvel at the majesty of the scenery as you rumble through Yala National Park.
