Similar to Bundala National Park, another bird sanctuary in Sri Lanka, it has a mix of marine and birdlife, because of its coastal lagoons, mangrove swamps, scrub jungles and open grassy areas. The reserve originally covered 2500 hectares, Kalametiya was first recognized as a wildlife sanctuary in 1938.The presence of lagoons and mangrove swamps, attracts a huge variety of winter migrant birds. It is home to 4 nationally threatened birds, and 38 species of reptiles that are nationally and globally threatened. Kalamatiya area records about 15 species of birds of which 54 are migratory. There are four nationally threatened birds found within the Sanctuary - Indian Reef Heron, Glossy Ibis, Sri Lankan Jungle Fowl and Black-capped Purple Kingfisher with Jungle Fowl being the only endemic species. This makes the Kalametiya Bird Sanctuary a wonderful place to visit, whether to see the threatened wildlife and birdlife before they become completely extinct, or to show support for their preservation.

    Tended to be a ‘walk to the next stop and we’ll talk’ type of tour, rather than talking as we went. Covered lots of good spots within the city. Be aware that they won’t run the tour with small numbers (actually they will offer you a private tour for a fixed price). A few stairs, so a little difficult with strollers.

    We had a great tour with Jelena around the city center of Belgrade! As it was my first time in Belgrade, I wanted to get a first flavour of the city together with some info on the history and landmarks. This tour served this purpose so well! Jelena is so knowledgeable and very patient with the asked questions. And be sure she will sprinkle some juicy stories about the city here and there. Would definitely recommend the tour!

    We met under the clock (to specify which tour this was). Marijana was so knowledgeable, confident and audible (so important for such a large). She was considerate In choosing a shady spot to stop when possible. This was an afternoon tour (I think 4 pm). Downtown Belgrade has so many amazing historical buildings. Marijana also let us taste the traditional homemade liquor. She was so helpful in suggesting eating places and giving directions. Highly recommend Marijana.
