“Absolutely Amazing River Safari”

Mangrove Cave River Safari
Ranked #2 of 2 things to do in Ahungalla
Attraction details
Reviewed August 3, 2014

The River safari included Fish Massage, visit to Cinnamon Island, Mangrove Caves & Temple visit. And if you are lucky you could get a huge Komodo Dragon swimming along side your boat, just like us.

The mangrove caves, floating on water is a sight indeed! It's lovely and peaceful to watch just water as far as the eye can see, interspersed by mangrove and islands, some uninhabited. Went to a cinnamon island, a Buddhist temple and village, and spotted some interesting wildlife! The heat didn't help but it was fun!

Beautiful, relaxing and great to see the wildlife and also get to hold a baby crocodile, really enjoyed seeing how they made the cinnamon from the bark and our guide was really good.

during the safari, we saw many small animals like monitor lizard, birds and tortoise...the fish farms were okay. they let you hold baby crocodile and take pictures. my best experience was when i saw how they roll cinnamon bark. very interesting.

This is worth doing but what they promise to do and see will not always be part of the trip. Buddhist temple and cinnamon farm are informative, but as with all monks we encountered they are deeply religious, but their world revolves around money and are rude enough to tell you how much you should be giving. The people starve as the higher monks, drive new Mercedes Benz's. Just getting out on the river though is good to get perspective of lifestyles.
