Cambodia Wildlife Holidays
Our wildlife holidays, wildlife tours and safaris of Cambodia are listed below:
Cambodia is best known for its wonderful historical monuments, its ancient temples and ruined palaces that draw millions of people from all over the world every year. Indeed it would be amiss to visit Cambodia and not spend some time visiting Siem Reap and the incredible temple complex of Angkor Wat. But there is much more to Cambodia than these ruins. There are not many areas of wilderness left but what there is is home to some of the world’s rarest species.
Royle Safaris will take you deep into some of the last remaining forests in Cambodia as we go in search of rare gibbons, langurs and the endemic giant ibis. Cambodia, like many countries in South East Asia is at a turning point in their conservation efforts. Currently there are still huge tracts of forest intact, with connecting forest corridors linking vital protected areas and cross boundary forests; where many endangered species still have large enough populations to survive into the future. However this can only happen with the right level of protection and awareness from the local people and their respective governments, as well as international eco-tourism really taking off here. But South East Asia is also the part of the world that is seeing huge deforestation and the a proliferation in the illegal animal trade. The billions of US dollars in illegal logging and the animal trafficking trade is taking its toll, so now is the time for people (international tourists and locals) to appreciate what wonderful national parks there are here and also contribute to the local economies so that the locals begin to see that intact forests and living animals are worth more alive than exploited.
Our Cambodian Wildlife Watching tours aim to showcase the wild areas whilst they are still here and to increase the needed ecotourism here. Our wildlife tours to Cambodia are a great mix of wildlife watching and exploration of various forests and even freshwater dolphin watching, but we will also be spending time visiting one of the important religious sites in the world in the famous Angkor Wat. The amount of temples and ancient sites in South East Asia is staggering and (just like the nature here) it is impossible to do it all justice in one trip, but we aim to showcase the most impressive areas and to highlight the unique differences between the two countries we will be visiting.
Join one of our wildlife tours to Cambodia and explore one of the last forests in this country and come face to face with the critically endangered northern buff-cheeked gibbon or cruise the rivers looking for the unusual Irrawaddy dolphin and of course visit the world famous and culturally important Angkor Wat temples. All in all this wonderful little country is a treasure trove of wildlife and cultural highlights and we hope you explore them with Royle Safaris.
All these tours are available on other dates (subject to availability) than the dates listed. Please contact us to arrange a tour on a date which suits you.
