Please share any tips / advise for Bharatpur and Sariska. Going there this weekend.

Lalit Sahdev Bharatpur is too good for birding. Sariska is good for Ungulates and has a one of the best population. Tigers are very elusive after bharon Ghati jungle becomes beautiful and good chances for leopards if you are lucky. Avoid Saturday and Tuesday it is open for Mandir and majorly devotees come during these days.

Just visited Yala National Park - and it definitely is a MUST VISIT place! It's beautiful, it's convenient and its cost effective. A full day safari for 12 hours for one person cost me only INR 9000!
The leopards are like tigers there - confident, in their own territory, rulers of the place. And they are all around!
I recommend Mevan very highly for the trip. Especially if you are keen wildlifers and prefer to be the first in and last out of the Park.
Any specific queries do ask directly. General info:
It is not raining in Yala.
June-July are good leopard months.
A spotted dear call is perfect in Yala.
Female leopards hunt down big Sambhar deers
Even in a non birding month the park was full of action moments with multiple species.
Try to avoid going on weekends if you can.
If you have time and resources Yala is best combined with Wilapattu and Sinharaja forest.

Shabnam Siddiqui The best person to connect with is Mevan Piyasena (Mobile: +94779951116) for stay and safari bookings. And connect with Koshala (+94772330405) for Colombo - Yala - Colombo transfer. He has better rates. When you book with Mevan ask for separate rates for stay, for safari, etc. depending on number of people in the trip.

Shabnam Siddiqui When i mentioned full day safari for one person I meant having the full vehicle to myself! Always helps :)
