What To Expect

What better way to witness rural life in Sri Lanka than to see it first hand from a motorboat cruise down Madu River? Your English speaking driver guide will pick you up from your hotel in either Colombo or Bentota - extremely convenient for travelers who want to save themselves the hassle of looking for transportation. Then, from there, head out to the Madu River and enjoy your 2-hour river safari and get to discover the beautiful sights of the waters and the surrounding areas. Afterwards, you'll be going to the 200-year-old Kothduwa Temple and will be learning about its religious significance, the best way to get a deeper insight about the city that it's in. When you're done taking in magnificent sights and stories, watch the process of cinnamon cultivation - one of Colombo's most important local industries. After a quick lunch stop in Bentota, you'll visit the turtle hatchery in Kosgoda and learn about how the city is doing its best to raise and conserve the local turtle species (also get to look how cute baby turtles are). It's truly an eye opening safari that you shouldn't miss in Sri Lanka!
