Your day-by-day itinerary

Long tail boat in the river

Day 1

Arrival to the camp

Today you will be picked up bright and early for a 5-hour transfer to Trapeang Rung, a small village on the edge of Botum Sakor National Park. On arrival, you’ll take a longtail boat across the river and continue into the dense jungle of the Cardamom mountains to your safari-style tented camp, located in the flat grasslands right on the river. This afternoon is yours, you can go on an exploratory hike in the jungle around the camp or paddle down the river in a kayak before being served a traditional Cambodian dinner in the evening.

Day 2

Into the jungle

After an early breakfast, you will be picked up by a ranger at the camp, together with your guide you’ll roam through the dense jungle and learn how the forest area is protected from poachers. Don’t forget to keep your eyes peeled for wildlife! After lunch, you’ll return to camp by kayak, let yourself drift down the river spotting monkeys and birds that live in the treetops. The afternoon is yours to relax and if you fancy take a dip in the river.

Day 3


If you’re an early riser and fancy a little more exploring before your departure, set off by boat to discover the nature along the course of the river. Grab some binoculars and a camera and look out for the animals enroute. On your return to the camp, you’ll have one last breakfast in the jungle before saying your farewells. With the boat, you’ll leave the Cardamom tented camp and return to Trapeang Rung, from here you’ll head onto your next exciting adventure.

“Cambodia is full of history and beauty, from Angkor Wat to the Cardamom Mountains. You can easily explore in one week or combine with neighbouring Vietnam. I often suggest Cambodia for families as it’s easy to travel around.”
