Trip Info

Enjoy a scenic cruise along the Madu River, which promises to be a relaxing trip with plenty of interesting stops. You will pass dozens of islets forested with mangroves and will be able to witness and appreciate the timeless natural rhythms of rural life.

While on this river safari, you will cruise in a canopied, outboard motor powered boat, pausing to view a 200 year old temple and to watch the locals cultivate cinnamon. You may also see traditional fishing techniques in action and demonstrations of coir and rope making.

Bring your pair of binoculars along if you can, since around 46 species of bird reside in the area, including 14 aquatic varieties. You can also spot huge water lilies and colourful butterflies. This trip is indeed ideal for the true nature lover and anyone looking for a peaceful getaway.

We will pick you up from your hotel 6:00 am & return you to your hotel in the evening.
