You can take a walk on Sri Lanka’s wild side with this full-day tour. It starts at Balapitiya, where you’ll hop into a boat for a safari trip along the Madu River. This pocket of Sri Lanka’s famous for its variety of animals, and you’ll see all kinds of birds as you weave through the mangroves. Keep your eyes peeled for jet-black cormorants and turquoise kingfishers. You’ll drop anchor at a tropical island, where you can spend some time in a remote village, learning about traditional Sri Lankan trades like cinnamon farming and the weaving of coconut leaves. Just as the spicy scent of cinnamon starts to make you hungry, you’ll be whisked off for lunch at Green Area Inn.
Just so you know, wildlife sightings are not guaranteed. Also, you're journey time is approximately two hours each way. Wearing mosquito repellent is recommended for this excursion.
