  • When should I visit Sri Lanka for a safari? What is the best time to visit Yala National Park?Sri Lanka is frequented by monsoons, so it is important to plan your trip. The best time to see wildlife is in the dry season from February to July when the vegetation is sparse and animals flock to water sources to quench their thirst.
  • How do I get to Yala National Park? If you don't mind a road trip or want to see more of the South Coast driving is a good option. However with little local transport options, the best way to get to Yala is by catching a domestic flight. We have tours with both transport styles to suit you and your budget!
