River Safari, Hikkaduwa, Sri Lanka

Hikkaduwa is a small town in the south of Sri Lanka with many large hotels at sea. During our stay there we took a tour through a nature reserve in the area, lakes connected by a river. In the lakes fishermen are active, by growing fish in demarcated cisterns and fishing with nets. On the small islands in the lakes herbs and spices are grown.
