Cambodia is a country probably best known as the home of the stunning temples of Angkor, however there is so much more to the country including a wonderful range of wildlife. Discover the bustling city of Phnom Penh with its waterfront promenade dominated by the towering spires of the Royal Palace: saunter through the compound and visit the Silver Pagoda.Visit Phnom Tamao Wildlife Rescue Centre and become a bear keeper for the day, a truly unique experience. Get behind the scenes, help prepare their food and learn what exactly it takes to look after the 100 or so rescued Sun Bears at the centre. Continue to the Elephant Valley Project which is home to a small community of rescued elephants. Take a jungle walk with the herd to a favoured waterfall: help bathe them, feed them and learn about the important work the centre is trying to do for these gentle giants. Drive through the Cambodian countryside past rubber plantations and lush jungle scenery and take to the waters to search for the rare Irrawaddy dolphins, a critically endangered community numbering less than 100. Visit the pre-Angkorian temples of Sambor Prei Kuk and end the trip in Siem Reap to explore the magnificent temples of Angkor. Marvel at the carved faces on the 54 towers of the Bayon and rise early for a sunrise visit to majestic Angkor Wat, a fitting end to a varied and fascinating Cambodia holiday.
