Madu Ganga River Safari

On an exciting boat safari, take in the sights, sounds, and mysteries of the beautiful mangrove jungle as you learn about the Madu River.

In the south of the island, near Galle, the Madu River is a paradise for those who enjoy the outdoors. The river is stunning with around 15 islets scattered along the river and mangrove forests that are home to over 300 species of wildlife, from colorful birds like woodpeckers and kingfishers to creepy crocodiles and more. Locals and tourists alike are drawn to witness its tropical landscapes and tranquil atmosphere! You can have fun taking a boat ride along this river while keeping an eye out for crocodiles or water monitors as they slide below the murky surface or as indigenous raptors soar above you! You will stop at a small island called Koth Duwa on the way to see its beautiful temple and Buddha statue. It’s another one you won’t want to miss!
