The district of Galle is located in the southern region of Sri Lanka.

Balpitiya is a small town in the district and would not be important enough; except for the location of a river.

The Madu River is very rich in biodiversity.

It crosses the wetland of Sri Lanka opening into the large Madu lagoon as it heads towards the Indian Ocean.

Madu Ganga is one of Sri Lanka’s most important natural assets.

It is located 70 km south of Colombo on the main Colombo-Galle road.

Madu Ganga is the second largest wetland on the island, made up of 28 islands.

The number of families living on the islands is estimated at around 250.

Madu Ganga covers 915 hectares of wet land and is home to a diverse biodiversity ecosystem.

The wetland of Madu Ganga is fed by seven tributaries and forms the body of the wetland.

The water flows through a 2300-hectare land course that was declared a national sanctuary in 2006.

A cruise on a modern motor boat is the best way to explore the natural wealth of Madu Ganga, the islands of the wetland are largely inaccessible by road.

The inhabitants also use boats and more often rowing boats as a means of transportation.

Our tours offer particularly interesting boat trips around Madu Ganga.

This wetland of Ramsa is one of the most visited natural attractions on the west coast of Sri Lanka, with river landscapes at peaceful thick islands and mangrove forests with sites of immense natural interest.

There are many opportunities to spot a fascinating wild life based on the aquatic environment, throughout the tour.

The most important resource of Madu Ganga’s fragile ecosystem are its mangrove forests.

These mangrove forests offer protection to a large number of water birds, animal and plant species.
