    “I can’t recommend this company enough!”
    We started the tour from Ella. Our driver arrived ahead of time and was waiting for us. Dylan joined us on the way on our journey. Communication throughout was amazing with his. He was so friendly and he really made our Safari experience so much better than we could have hoped. He was so passionate and knowledgeable about the national park and the animals and also Sri lankan politics. We weren’t expecting to learn so much, but we feel so lucky that Dylan was able to share so much information with us.
    We saw a leopard, elephants, a sloth bear, crocodiles and many different species of birds. Everything we were hoping to see and more!
    The breakfast that was provided was super tasty.
    I wouldn’t hesitate to book with this company again, and I will recommend them to anyone I know who is looking to book a safari in Yala national park.

    “An amazing ride with Dylan”
    I asked for a gentle guide who would stop frequently for photographing birds and understand the behavior of the animals and Dylan and Safari Driver was terrific. He had a heightened sense of hearing and seeing even small creatures. We saw crocodiles, elephants, deer, antelopes, and water buffalos. When Dylan got word of a sighting he quietly and skillfully managed to position our jeep for ideal viewing. Definitely, Dylan and 4restlankatours, are the best person and company to go on an incredible safari in Yala.

    “We had a wonderful day”
    We did the Safari Tour (Yala National Park) with Dilan and it was great! The pick-up in the early morning at the hotel in Ella was perfectly on time and they even drove us to Mirissa after the tour. We saw so many different animals like elephants, buffalos, deer, eagles and also the rare leopard! Dilan told us so many interesting things about Sri Lankan wildlife, we enjoyed it a lot and had a really good time. We can highly recommend the tour and Dilan as a guide, he was very kind and friendly and even made us delicious breakfast sandwiches! Thank you for the great day, we would definitely do it anytime again!

    Dylan is a friendly person. We trusted his experience and booked a morning safari tour. we started the tour early morning from Mirissa.
    we reached Yala at 6.30 am. He showed us also sloth bears which are hard to find as well. We saw also many other animals: spotted deer, samba deer, elephant, mongoose, several different birds, buffalo, wild pig, and monkey. The provided breakfast was very tasty.
    Yala national park is beautiful. Some roads are in a bad condition but Dylan managed his driver safely and comfortably for the passengers.

Dilan also gave us a lovely breakfast and then after took us out for lunch which was very kind then continued to drive to mirrisa .

    “Excellent Yala Safari!!”

    Dilan helped us with a transfer from Ella to Mirrisa, with a stop of for a safari at Yala on the way which was ideal for us.
    He was so friendly and helpful and full of information about Sri Lanka and the animals. He also kindly provided us with breakfast and lunch.
    We had a great time and plenty of laughs along the way.

    ‘More than a guide’

    We contacted Dilan as we needed to have a transfer from Ella to Mirissa but with a stop in Yala for a morning Safari. Dilan replied quickly and arranged everything for us.
    He sent a VERY comfortable van that picked us exactly at the time agreed on (4 am). The driver was very polite and got us quickly to the entry point, picking up Dilan on the way. There we switched to a jeep, all for ourselves, to proceed into the park. We then spent a few hours trying every road to find as many animals we could. Dilan and the driver pointed out to us most of the animals as we couldn’t see them initially, while providing us with clear explanations once we got to take our pictures. We saw many crocodiles, unique birds, two group of deers, a tons of buffalos, varans, two lone elephants and then three together with the cutest baby elephant. And then lo and behold, there was a sighting of the infamous leopard ! Dilan and the driver did their best to get us a spot so we could admire the majestic creature ! Definitely the highlight of our trip. Dilan made sure to bring plenty of tasty home-mande sandwiches for breakfast as we had to leave early.

    We then got back to our van which took us to the front door of our guest house in Mirissa.A perfect experience without any hiccup. Thanks!

    ‘Incredible day in Yala National Park’

    We were lucky to join Dilan on a guided tour through Yala National Park. At first we thought there was way too many cars surrounding the first few animals. But then we went further into the park and away from all the other cars where we saw for example leopards, elephants and then we were very lucky to see a sloth bear.
    We can highly recommend Dilan as a guide, extremely kind and caretaking, and also the chauffeur for taking us on a real safari and not just chasing around what some other cars maybe saw.
    We had a really good day seeing the beautiful park and its inhabitants.🐆🐃🐘🐊

    “Great trip with good guide”

    Cool walk around Yala national park. We had a super guide and a good driver who made sure we had a great trip. We saw both Leopards, bears and elephants. All in all, a super experience.

    “Trip to Ella and Yala Reserve”

    We visited the beautiful mountain town of Ella, surrounded by tea plantations. We had an amazing sunrise from Ella Rock. We walked on the unique Nine Arches Bridge and spent the rest of the day watching Yala Reserve. We had a very nice and smiling guide Dilanam who was willing to give us all day and see to it. Thank you for a wonderful experience.
