Madhu River Boat Safari

Hidden amidst the lush landscapes of Sri Lanka lies a serene oasis waiting to be explored – Madhu River. Embarking on a boat safari along this tranquil waterway promises an enchanting experience, where nature’s beauty and cultural heritage converge in harmony.


Getting to Madhu River

To reach the Madhu River, travelers can embark on a scenic journey from nearby cities like Galle or Bentota. The route meanders through picturesque countryside, offering glimpses of rural life and verdant scenery, setting the tone for the peaceful adventure that awaits.


Overview of Madhu River Boat Safari

As the boat glides gracefully along the gentle currents of Madhu River, a sense of serenity envelops the surroundings. Traditional-style boats, manned by experienced guides, provide the perfect vantage point to soak in the natural splendor and cultural richness that line the riverbanks.


Wildlife and Nature around Madhu River

Madhu River is a haven for wildlife enthusiasts and nature lovers alike. Along the journey, travelers have the opportunity to spot a myriad of bird species gracefully perched on mangrove branches, while glimpses of water monitors and playful monkeys add an element of excitement to the tranquil scenery.


Cultural Highlights around Madhu River

The boat safari also offers glimpses into the rich cultural tapestry of Sri Lanka. Passing by traditional villages nestled along the riverbanks, travelers can observe local fishermen casting their nets and villagers going about their daily routines. A visit to a cinnamon plantation provides insight into the spice’s cultivation, steeped in centuries of tradition.


Scenic Stops and Photo Opportunities

Scenic viewpoints along the river offer perfect photo opportunities, capturing reflections of verdant greenery dancing upon the calm waters. As the sun begins to set, the vibrant hues of dusk paint the sky, creating a magical ambiance that is truly unforgettable.

The Experience of Madhu River Fish Therapy

Imagine dipping your feet into the crystal-clear waters of Madhu River, feeling the gentle caress of the current as schools of small fish surround you. As these tiny fish delicately nibble away at the dead skin cells on your feet, a tingling sensation envelops your senses, creating a deeply relaxing and rejuvenating experience.

Fish therapy, also known as fish pedicure or ichthyotherapy, is believed to have numerous health benefits. The gentle exfoliation provided by the fish helps to remove dead skin cells, leaving your feet feeling soft, smooth and rejuvenated. Additionally, the massaging action of the fish promotes circulation, relieves tension, and can even alleviate symptoms of certain skin conditions such as psoriasis and eczema.

Unique Experiences in Madnhu River Boat Safari

Venturing into smaller tributaries and hidden waterways, travelers can uncover hidden gems tucked away from the main river. Optional activities such as bird watching or fishing add a touch of adventure to the journey, providing memorable experiences for every traveler.

While embarking on the Madhu River boat safari, it’s essential to prioritize safety. Wearing sunscreen and a hat ensures protection from the sun’s rays, while insect repellent keeps pesky bugs at bay. Experienced boat operators ensure a safe and enjoyable journey for all travelers.


A journey through the Madhu River is a symphony of tranquility and wonder, where every twist and turn reveals a new facet of Sri Lanka’s natural and cultural heritage. Adding this unique adventure to your Sri Lanka itinerary promises an enriching experience that lingers in the heart long after the journey concludes.

Memorable and enjoyable 15 days in Sri Lanka with Green Holidays The green holidays organised our whole trip to Sri Lanka according to our suggestions and requirements. We had a perfect, peaceful and enjoyable 15 days holiday. Pradeep and Rashmi booked the accommodation, vehicle for travel and the the driver/guide within a very short time. They were very prompt in responding to our messages and accommodating our last minute changes. The hotels they booked were comfortable, check in was so smooth and the service was good. We were able to do much more than we anticipated because of their coordination. Our guide/driver Romesh was very polite, trustworthy and punctual. We travelled with Romesh from Colombo to Batticaloa, Jaffna, Kandy and Galle in his car without any incidents and reached safely at the airport on time for our return flight. We thank Pradeep, Jay, Rashmi and Romesh for making our trip a pleasant and an enjoyable one.

Travel in peace and with Personal contact of Green Holidays We used the services of Green Holiday for our stay in Sri Lanka. They arranged the complete tour picking us up at the Bandaranayaka Airport and taking us to Jaffna, Batticaloa, Bentota, Colombo and Kandy including Ella. Green Holiday provided us with a Chauffeur/ tour guide ( Upul) who knew so much about SriLanka and its History and personally took care of our safety and was with us to ensure our check in at the hotels was flawless. Upul is a honest trustworthy person to rely on and was very caring. Thanks to Green Holidays for providing a knowledgeable person to be with us throughout the trip. We had the pleasure of dealing with Pradeep who planned out our trip to our liking with several changes requested by us and was available on the phone anytime 24/7 to discuss and review options. Rashmi from Green Holidays was our local contact in case of any emergency or for information once we were in in Sri Lanka. We were glad to have the assurance of a personal contact while on vacation. Green Holidays has earned our trust to make our vacation relaxing and trouble free. We recommend Green Holidays as a reliable trustworthy company to book your vacation packages. Their team worked vigorously to ensure our vacation is pleasant, memorable and safe.

Great driver, great Organisation My boyfriend and i took a two week holiday on sri lanka. One week on road, one week beach holiday. Apart from a little mishap at the start when our arrival time was wrongly put at 09.30 instead of 05.30. However all it took was a quick phone to Dilan our driver who rushed to pick us up immediately. Due to delays on the way here and a little visa issue (always double check your passport numbers twice people) we arrived in the arrival hall at 07.30…once we had called the adventure began at 08.15. Dilan was an absolute godsend. Kept us entertained with facts about the areas we were visiting, made good conversation during our long journeys and got us there safe and sound every time. Dilan would also help us plan out our day and was honest enough when something was either gonna be a rushjob or whenever he felt we weren’t gonna get the best bang for our buck at a certain attraction. which we really appreciated, since we had completely missjudged the traffic and the distances on this journey. He also helped us handle check-ins and check-out and as we later found out when we made excursions of our own, he also kept pesky scammers away whenever we went to visit a place on foot. As for the rest of the trip everything went incredibly smoothly. Hotel staff were super friendly with us and safaris and other tour providers were informed well in advance so that we would literaly rock up, get into another car or jeep or were handed over to a local guide and be on our way right away. So long story short, we would like to thank Green Holiday and Dilan for making our trip the adventure of a lifetime and wholeheartedly recommend them to anyone traveling in sri lanka.

Absolutely reliable company with best guides. First of all, this company we used for arranging our whole vacation in Sri Lanka worked just perfect. We had no issue whatsoever. For travelling around the island for several days we had a guide Upul. He just was the best! Not only he was driving us around safe, he also knew about history, gave us all the explanations in a very interesting way. He took us in many great, beautiful and even fun places, always stood by our side, guiding us through crowds to the most interesting points and telling us all the information - about history, religions, politics, traditions, nature, you name it. Upul was truly able to answer any question we had. On top of that, he was always smiling, in a good mood, treated us with dignity and patiency. We truly appreciated it and thanks to him and a perfect organization we had the best time in Sri Lanka. I also want to say, that the company manager got in touch with us on the second day, asking how satisfied we were with Upul, checking if everything was ok. It was a nice thing to do. Overall, I truly recommend this company if you want to spend your vacatin with no hassle and great guiding.
