We did two birding tours, one to the Tonle Sap Lake and one a bit north of Siem Reap into the jungle. And both of them were really breathtaking and fantastic. Our guide Mardy was also really good and knew everything. So if you are into nature, you should definitely do such a tour!

The mythical Giant Ibis…

an abundance of large waterbirds, and temples nestled in flat, dry forest full of birds. Cambodia includes some of Asia’s wildest places where species lost elsewhere can still be found. The sheer abundance of birds, and the experiences you will have with little-known species easily makes up for only two true endemics.

Cambodia’s wetlands and grasslands abound in waterbirds: Greater Adjutant, Spot-billed Pelican, Sarus Crane and the wonderful Bengal Florican are easily seen. Open dry forests give excellent views of Giant and White-shouldered Ibises, White-rumped Pygmy Falcon and a globally diverse numbers of woodpeckers. Our guides have staked out all the owls, so you don’t lose any sleep over them, and our vulture restaurant ensures you get fantastic views of Cambodia’s three Critically Endangered vultures. We know just where to find pittas, pheasants and other forest birds in the east, as well as the Mekong Wagtail.

We make things as easy as you like – from 1 day to 3 weeks, and if you’re up for a little challenge we can arrange a three-day trek to see the endemic Cambodian Laughingthrush and other specialties of the Cardamom Mountains. Expect around 200 species including the recently-discovered endemic Cambodian Tailorbird in a week on our regular itineraries, and 300 + if you stay longer.

Our English-speaking bird guides handle all logistics during your tour, they are very familiar with the protected sites and liaise with the local guides, in whose back yards you will find the birds. They anticipate your needs and go out of their way to show off Cambodia’s special species. At the end of each day, they will go over the list of birds seen that day and share the trip list with everyone at the end of the tour.

We spend 6 months every year training our guides to constantly increase their skills and knowledge – to give you the trip of your dreams.
