Full description

Start with a pickup from your hotel in Colombo heading to the South West Coast of the country. Visit the Kosgoda Turtle Hatchery on the Southwestern coast of Sri Lanka and learn more about the five endangered sea turtle species that come to the shores of Sri Lanka to nest.

Discover how the Kosgoda Turtle Care Program helps protect the nests until they hatch and increases the chances of survival for the babies. Get a chance to see, touch and feed baby turtles; or even injured adult turtles that the Turtle Hatchery cares for. Proceed to Balapitiya and go on a lovely Boat Safari down the Madu River with its flourishing ecosystem. Pass through the secretive passages created by the mangroves. See the basking crocodiles and water monitors, and visit one of the small islands with its cinnamon harvesting natives. Enjoy the restorative qualities of the famous fish massage. Visit the Galle Fort which is one of the best-preserved fortifications in Asia. View the Maritime Museum, Galle National Museum, and the lighthouse. Walk through the cobblestoned streets with their Dutch names as you learn more about their histories.
