Situated just between the popular beach resorts of Bentota and Hikkaduwa, the river system of Madu Ganga has developed into a major natural attraction for sightseeing tours, to be discovered by boat safaris starting near the mainroad A2. The Madu Ganga area consists of a wide lake and surrounding marshlands and mangrove forests, inhabited by more than 300 plant species. Madu Ganga is perfect for birdwatching, too, as 111 bird species are recorded.
Madu Ganga boat safaris will start close to the river mouth, cross tunnels through the mangrove swamp, visit Cinnamon Island to study cinnamon production, show you Sri Lanka’s longest wooden bridge, visit a Buddhist temple on an island, allow you to observe traditional fishing techniques and give you the opportunity to enjoy a fish massage.
Madu Ganga boat safaris are popular with local couples just married and foreign families with children in particular.
