Kalametiya Lagoon Safari
Enjoy the coastal beauty of southern Sri Lanka but among many things to do in Tangalle, is to explore the Kalametiya Bird Sanctuary; the oldest on this island. Take a Lagoon Safari and spend some time on a day excursion you will truly cherish. The biodiversity of this birding hotspot makes it a wonderland for avid birdwatchers.
A landscape highlighted by mangroves and bespeckled with over 150 species of endemic and migratory birds – is a treat not to be missed. This day tour will keep you fascinated, as the waters reveal and conceal schools of fish numbering over 40 species – besides the reptiles and mammals who also inhabit the Park. The local fishing community will come into sight as you move on your boat safari; it’s your call to stop and take in local, traditional ways of fishing and watch the interactions of these people.
Should you like to take a break from the Lagoon Safari and birding, you can step off for a short forest trail which leads to some ruins dating back centuries. You may catch sight of regal peacocks and curious monkeys and, if lucky, quiet porcupines, whilst on the trail. No doubt, the Kalametiya Birding Safari offers you a colourful array of avifauna surrounded by their melodious calls, whilst you adventure upon canoes in the lapping waters of the lagoon.
