How safe is the night driving from airport to Pinnawala.

We arrive airport at midnight and are considering taking private car/taxi to Pinnawala.

Realise this is a couple of hours away and on a windy road. Are the drivers careful and is it safe?

After 2 months in the Philippines we believe the driving standards and conditions to be the same.

Not something we enjoy. We see little point in travelling to Colombo for part of the night.

Only to begin the journey again in the morning to Pinnawala.

But would consider this if the consensus was it would be a safer ride.

Appreciate thoughts and feelings and recommendations of drivers if you have some.

Hi there,

No worries. Only problems with night driving in SL are in areas with wild jumbos, this does not classify as such.
