We went on a safari with Sudu and some friends we met along our trip. We did the 1/2 day trip and that was more than enough. We had breakfast and a small lunch in the afternoon before heading back. We saw 2 leopards, some elephants, peacocks, buffalos, different colored birds. It was a good experience. Sudu really tried to make sure that we don't miss out on spotting the animals that were around. I think the day we went, we were one of the only jeeps to see more than 1 leopard - Sudu really does a good job with this.

If you choose to do a safari, you should know that these jeeps will do anything to see the animals they came to see - and sometimes this means disturbing the animals a little bit - which we ended up getting tired off quite quickly.

Staying with Sudu was a unique experience for us. We did a great Yala Safari with him and extended our stay at his hostel. He and his friends are very funny and caring people and showed us awesome places around the town. We had a lot of fun and can only recommend him as a guide.

A friend and I recently booked a trip to yala with sudo - safari was incredible and sudo was good at positioning the truck so we could get some good photos. We were lucky enough to see two leopards as well as elephants, water buffalo, various birds and monitor lizards. We booked the trip very last min and sudo was flexible to take us quickly to the park.

We would recommend :)

Some photos of the animals we saw attached.

We booked a stay in Sudus Guesthouse in Tissamaharama and made the big mistake to book a cheaper safari from another provider. We were so disappointed that we decided to give it another chance with Sudu, and had an amazing safari with him today. What made his safari so different from the others, was the fact he didn’t stay on the phone all the time to follow all the other jeeps to chase the animals. He is really concerned not to bother any animals and not to disturb them in their natural habitat, what makes it easier to watch them.
His organization and his knowledge about the area and the national park was fantastic as well. So totally worth the price !!!
He explained a lot of things to us and showed us so many animals. I already did one safari in Sri Lanka before, but this experience was totally different - we saw elephants, crocodiles, bears, various birds and even two leopards!!
We rented his rooms for a really good price and didn’t expect it to be like this - the rooms were spacious, clean and really comfortable.
I can highly recommend a stay and safari tour with Sudu, he made us feel like friends , not like customers. We will definitely come back for another tour with him. Thank you for all!
