I’ve really enjoyed a day visit to this sanctuary. Started with a walk through the jungle followed by meeting the elephants. We were given sugar canes and bananas and were given quite a lot of time to take pictures. We also had the chance to...More
I wish I had done a little more homework before spending 8 hours traveling via car from Phnom Pehn.
As 2 60 year olds we really struggled coming back from the jungle as it was very steep and rocky. As such we couldn't do the...More
We were picked up at our guesthouse. It was a little disappointing because the website said that there was going to be only 12 people and in the end we were like 20.
We drove to a Bunong village and we were free to walk...More

Our guide for the first day's trek (along with 4 others, a total of eight people) was very...More
We started out very excited since we went to cambodia especially for the elephant sanctuaries but ended up severely disappointed. We tried to contact the other sanctuaries but none of them replied so we went with this one. We inquired the night prior regarding the...More
After weeks travelling asia we wanted to visit a sound, ethical elephant project. And from what we witnessed, that what we saw. The elephants had plenty of space, food, shade and water accessible to them. And they seemed very free to roam. Only 1 of...More
The first day we made a 22K trek in the jungle , unfortunately our guide did not speak any English. so no info about Fauna & Flora. after a good night rest in a traditional hut we went to meet the elephants . in the...More
