We will start more safely and the great journey to enjoy natural lush of Sri Lanka. The prime destination is Galle, a culturally significant city in Sri Lanka.
Madu River Boat Safari - Surrounded by a thick jungle of mangroves and clear waters, Madu Ganga is one of the most prolific rivers in Sri Lanka. The most important asset of the fragile eco-system of Madu River is its mangrove forests. These mangrove forests are providing the protection for a large number of aquatic bird, animal and plant species. The eco-system in Madu River is the home for different kinds of aquatic plants, crabs, shrimps, fish, insects, amphibians and many other animal life including crocodile (Sri Lanka crocodile). Madu River is inhabited by a large number of animals and its bio-diversity is at very high level. The Madu River boat ride at Madu estuary is a journey that enthrals you with its captivating rich natural vegetation and living beings.
Turtle Hatchery - Stop off at Turtle Hatchery Hikkaduwa to meet the little critters born and raised at this conservation center. Marked by a number of colorful turtle murals on the outside wall, this beachside facility aims to protect populations of olive ridley, leatherback, green, hawksbill, and loggerhead turtles. The center includes a sandy area where the turtles hatch under small hills, and multiple tanks where you can see the variety of species swimming around. You even get the chance to release some of the infants back into the wild.
Galle City & Galle Fort - Galle is the cream of the crop of Sri Lanka’s southern coast. Standing on a peninsula with a fine natural harbour that provided excellent defenses to the country, it is a culturally significant city that has earned the status of a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Galle’s most iconic landmark is the Galle Fort which was a stronghold built by the Portuguese in 1588 during their colonization and was later fortified by the Dutch in the 17th century and then occupied by the English. While a number of villas, mansions and buildings have been converted into hotels, cafes, museums and shops, the old-world charm of the era still lingers on.
