Northern Plains 3 Day Birding & Temple Tour
Discover spectacular birdlife and an ancient marvel of Cambodia on a 3 day Northern Plains adventure!
Cambodia is the last stronghold of a set of magnificent birds that are now so globally rare they are considered Critically Endangered on the IUCN Red List. This tour is a superb opportunity, not just to see these incredible species, but by supporting SVCs work with community-based conservation to give them a chance of continued survival.
Most of the bird watching takes place in an open dry forest, a beautiful habitat in which to watch birds. Two nights will be at a purpose-built community ecolodge. You will also get to see Preah Vihear Temple on the Cambodia-Thailand border which is one of Cambodia’s greatest marvels.
