The new Cardamom Tented Camp in Botum Sakor National Park in southwest Cambodia has announced 3-day / 2-night and 4-day /3-night package. The safari-style camp with nine boutique tents, each with private bathroom, is open for booking, with the soft opening on 1 November.
Each package includes an introductory presentation on the 18,000-hectare Botum Sakor National Park followed by guided hikes by Wildlife Alliance rangers. Guests follow abandoned poaching and logging trails through dense forest home to macaques, gibbons, hornbills and more. Hikers can inspect confiscated snares, traps and improvised hunting rifles at a ranger station.
After hiking, guests have the option of kayaking back to the tented camp on the Preak Tachan river. Each inclusive package with breakfast, lunch and dinner in the camp’s riverside restaurant allows time for guests to explore or relax
“The Cardamom Tented Camp helps keep the forest standing,” said Willem Niemeijer, CEO of YAANA Ventures, the sustainable tourism company invited to create a low-impact ecotourism camp. “We can’t take the forest’s survival for granted. Each visitor helps us show the world that well managed ecotourism is a viable alternative to logging and hunting.”
