Explore the Bentota Mangrove and its diverse wildlife on a 2-hour river cruise. Hop aboard and cruise along the third largest river in Sri Lanka as you observe water monitor lizards, river birds, and maybe even a rare crocodile in their natural habitats. Spend the day relaxing in nature and exploring these diverse mangroves.
Learn about how the mangroves play a huge part in preventing erosion and acted as a natural barrier from the devastating tsunami in 2004. Discover how the fertile soil makes this region a treasure trove for biologists and ecologists with many undiscovered species in the unreachable depths of the mangrove forests.
After the boat safari, visit the Ayurveda spice and herb garden and Bentota beach. After the tour, you will be taken back to your hotel in Colombo or Negombo.
