Another fascinating thing to do while on the safari is the fish spa in the middle of the river.

The Madu Ganga's smallest island is Satha Paha Island. During the River safari session, you can see it. Since it resembles the old Sri Lankan 5 cent coin, it is known as Satha Paha Doowa (5 cent island). It also contains a tiny Hindu temple building.


The greatest asset of Madu Ganga is its mangroves, which serve as a bio-lock to the region, protecting the variety of aquatic flora and animals. They serve as habitat for a variety of aquatic plants, crabs, shrimp, fish, crustaceans, and other animals including crocodiles. Mangrove trees can be found all throughout the Madhu Ganges River.

Our Boat

Our boat is 4 meters long and 2.5 meters broad. It is possible to transport 9 passengers at the same time. simple to use Depending on the sort of production, the beauty of the landscape can be easily perceived. The hull of this boat is made of fiberglass. Fiberglass technology is one of the most popular and well-known technologies in the world. To put it another way, lightweight design. Fiberglass boats are often lighter than wood or other materials. Fiberglass boats are more stable and have superior seakeeping qualities than aluminum boats since they weigh more on average. Fiberglass boats drift more slowly and steadily because they are heavier and less vulnerable to wind buffeting. Even while sailing through stormy waves and inclement weather, our fiberglass boat provides a solid and silent working environment on the water. When water contacts the bottom or sides of your boat, it does not make a loud "lapping" noise like an aluminum or wooden boat. This prevents you from yelling at someone on the opposite side of the boat while enjoying your favorite water sport with your friends and family. As a result, there is no need to be concerned about security.
