Starting Point

Siem Reap

With less than 300 mature Giant Ibis left in the wild, you can now see one of the world's rarest birds in the location with the highest rate of viewing success. Brought back from the brink of extinction in the mid-2000’s, Giant Ibis represents Cambodia as the country's national bird as well as a continuing conservation effort. SVC works with the community in Tmat Boey, SVC’s flagship site, to ensure a 90% viewing success rate of Giant Ibis. Other spectacular species in this trip include critically endangered species such as the White-shouldered Ibis and Bengal Florican.

All year round. April to November we won't go to the Bengal Florican Grassland as many key species here are near impossible to view in the wet season.

Things to bring

  • Sun cream
  • Appropriate closed-toe shoes. Walking boots are best
  • Light clothing covering shoulders and knees- this is especially relevant when visiting temples and religious sites. Clothing should not be bright when birding
