What you'll do
Galle reached the height of its development in the 18th century, during the Dutch colonial period. The major river is Gin River Gin Ganga which starts from Gongala Kanda and flowing through many beautiful villages in the area. “Kirala” the mangrove apple river safari offering you an experience you are unlikely to forget! We pride ourselves on our fun and education record. Ging River Safari was founded by two siblings and joined hands with EuroLanka Holidays to develop further….. Having started sailing, Shehan & Charuka in their teens the Ging River has never been far from their lives. Living close to the bay, in Gingthota, they have gained extensive local knowledge of both the wildlife and history, which they are only keen to share on the tours. With their local expertise & our knowledge, we have introduced the tour “ Kirala” the mangrove apple in connection to an article published by us about this endemic fruit. “You will be treated with a Kirala or the mangrove apple drink with a warm welcome to our eco friendly canoe. You will find where the fruit comes from & how you pick them”
