Day 02 - Bentota – Yala (Approx. 7 ½ Hrs.)
Today early breakfast at the hotel and proceed to Yala. En route visit city of Galle
City of Galle - Today’s town has grown greatly and spreads into the surroundings but the Fort is the slow beating heart of Galle‘s history. The walled city has stood since the early sixteenth century, through the Colonial periods of the Portuguese, Dutch and British and in our present times is proclaimed as an Archaeological Reserve and has been identified as a living World Heritage Site. The etymology of the name Galle is explained as probably an altered form of the Sinhalese word “gala”: a cattle fold or posting-place from which the Portuguese named it Point-de-Galle. The simpler and more popular theory is found in the similarity of the Sinhalese word: gala, for rock, which the Portuguese duplicated by adopting the Latin word: Gallus, for rooster. They thus designed the coat-of-arms of the city as that of a rooster standing upon a rocky perch.
The Yala national park - The Yala National Park is the most famous wildlife sanctuary in Sri Lanka and this vast reserve is home to a multitude of fascinating wildlife as well as plant life. Deer, peacocks, wild boar, bears and herds of wild elephants are just some of the creatures that live here. Yala is also known as one of the best places to spot the ever illusive Sri Lankan leopard and is also home to an amazing array of endemic birds. Explore this amazing realm in a jeep safari escorted by experienced and knowledgeable guides and trackers and see for yourself the amazing creatures that inhabit it.
Evening enjoy Safari.

Udawalawe National Park -The park is situated just south of the Central Highlands, of which escarpment brings about an enrapturing backdrop. At the center of the park lies the Udawalawe Reservoir. Udawalawe National Park established in the year 1972, with the objective of protecting the catchment area of Udawalawe reservoir, which provides water for agriculture and hydro-power generation spreads over an area 30,821, resembles an African game park: it is mainly thorny-shrub jungle with grasslands. While the remnants of the Teak plantations that were planted at the time of the construction of the Udawalawe Reservoir is scattered around, Kumbuk and the endemic Mandorang trees abound in the riverine areas. Keeping company to the herds of elephants, the main attraction of the park are Water Buffalo, Wildboar, Spotted Deer, Sambur Deer, Jackal, Samber, Black-naped hare, mongooses, bandicoots, foxes, s the endemic Toque Macaque and Gray Langers.

Worth looking at are the tombstones set into the floor, which were moved from a church within the Fort in 1813.The dates on the tombs of several Dutch governors, whose bones were reinterred here, reveal how risky life could have been for the Dutch conquerors: even during peacetime, the death toll from disease was high and many died after only a short stay in Colombo.
