Free The Bears At Phnom Tamao
- Full Day
Set out early for a visit to Phnom Tamao Wildlife Rescue Centre, a tranquil forested compound one-hour from Phnom Penh. Upon arrival, meet with the local staff who will explain the day’s programs and give background information about the centre.  

Begin the Phnom Tamao tour with a walk through the 7 hectare compound alongside a caretaker. See more than 100 Asian Sun Bears and Black Bears (aka Moon Bears) who have been rescued from poachers and learn about Cambodia’s wildlife trade. There are also other animals, more than 12,000 in total, such as elephants and gibbons that are being rehabilitated and cared for at Phnom Tamao.  

Although the animals are fenced off, there are plenty of opportunities to observe them. Join the caretakers to feed the bears and learn about the different personalities of the many Sun and Moon Bears who now call the park home. 

A delicious picnic lunch will be served in a bamboo hut at the centre. After lunch, explore the grounds of the Wildlife Rescue Center with wildlife experts. Watch the gibbons as they swing from tree to tree, watch the squeaky otters play in the water, and enjoy a variety of exotic animals from Clouded Leopard to Asian Elephants, all of whom have been saved from captivity and are well cared for by local wildlife professionals. This is an incredible chance to see the diversity of Cambodia’s wildlife up close! 

In the afternoon, say goodbye to the staff and animals, wrap up the Phnom Tamao tour and return to Phnom Penh. (L)
