Booking a river safari in Bentota is an enchanting experience that immerses travelers in the natural beauty and wildlife of Sri Lanka. As you glide through the tranquil waters, you’ll be surrounded by lush mangroves and serene landscapes, offering a perfect opportunity for photography and nature appreciation. The area is teeming with biodiversity, and you’re likely to spot a variety of birds, including kingfishers and herons, along with other wildlife such as water monitors and maybe even a crocodile basking on the banks. This journey not only allows for wildlife watching but also provides a peaceful retreat into nature, where the sounds of the forest and the gentle lapping of the river create a soothing atmosphere. Additionally, you’ll learn about the local ecosystem and the importance of conservation from knowledgeable guides, making this safari not only a visual delight but also an educational experience.

Найкраще проведення часу! 2 години нас на човні катали по мангрових лісах, завдяки дуже уважному гіду вдалося побачити варана, погодувати мавпочок, побачити летючих лисиць, зелену змію, потримати в руках маленького крокодильчика! Ми у захваті!!!

Very nice safari, Harinder was a professional guide with a sweet smile. He knew where to find the animals and how to approach them.
I got exactly what was promised.

Went between 1-3PM. Got to see Iguanas, water Lizards, crocodiles and snakes. Naleen was a top guy! Extremely good at spotting these reptiles. Highly recommended.
