The safaris are one of the most sought after activities on the island, both locals and tourists alike, for the love of nature and its wonders.

The jungle is a world of its own, and there are some do's and don'ts for the ones who venture into that mysterious, captivating and dangerous world, both for their own safety and the animals. Below are some of the dos and definitely don'ts that you should know, when on the Yala safari in Sri Lanka.


Read, learn, and get yourself engaged in the life of the wild, the animals, and their habitats.

Follow the guidelines and rules at all times. Do not let yourself be spoken into breaking the rules, nor should you encourage someone you travel with to do so.

Stick to the routes and trails given, and never stray. The park is almost 20 times bigger than Colombo, if not bigger, and you wouldn't want to lose your way there.

Do not put up with the rude or dangerous behaviour of companions, speak up or report to authorities immediately.

Don't feed the animals or eat strong smelling food. You must eat only in the allowed areas.

Do not use the flash when taking pictures

Keep your mobile phones in silent mode at all times

Do not carry weapons or sharp objects with you

Smoking in the jungle is not allowed

If you prefer to stay closer to the park, a place like the Mahoora Tented Safari Camps is a good idea.
