River Safari

The Benthara River (sometimes referred to as the Bentota River), provides the perfect opportunity for nature lovers and explorers. A river safari through the waterways allows you to experience just a glimpse of the country’s unique flora and fauna. Be it reptiles, mammals or birds, there are many things that you could witness while cruising along the Benthara River.

Whether you’re staying at The Muse, Rock Villa, Long House or River Cottage, partake in a river safari and enthral at the sight of the rare and exotic birds that take refuge in its mangroves and banks. Keep your eyes peeled for crocodiles and water monitors gliding through the murky green waters too!
