Overview
More
Small, personal trips around Phnom Penh. Take a daytrip to the Phnom Tamao Wildife Rescue Center or spend 2 days in the countryside with a homestay, Feed and interact with a variety of rescued and endangerd animals at the rescue center or see some ricefields, go hiking near a waterfall and spend a night at our family farm. Both tours include delicious homecooked meals and everything else you need. The size of the groups is limited, to give you a more personal experience. The area around Phnom Penh is varied and offers many different sights besides temples and Khmer Rouge history that most people associate with Cambodia. We want to show you some of these happy places.

Don’t be fooled!! This tour is not actually what they sell you in the website!! It is a trip to the Zoo, with some monkeys and an elephant living around. Animals are in small cages and seem pretty sad, it doesn’t look like a rescue...More

We were sold a 'wildlife safari' and discovered it was a tour to the local zoo. We were taken in a smelly old van to the zoo - which is only about 40kms outside Phnom Penh - at a ridiculously slow speed (even when the...More

Lovely day away from city chaos. Delicious food and such care tanking atmosphere. So much knowledge about the species and the animals themselves. All the info boards were just in khmer. If wanna visit the site, highest recommendation.
