One of the rare highlight of my trip in Phnom Penh was the guided tour to Phnom Tamao Wildlife Rescue Centre... Our guide was knowledgeable, more importantly, knew each animal by their name and was able to gave us a background of how each came to the centre. As there was no map of infomation(apart from the specie) available in... More

The tour began on time, after an hour we arrived at the park. It looks like a zoo at first but after a couple of words with Aram we realized straight away that it was something more: Phnom Tamao is a fantastic project brought up by Wildlife Alliance in which endangered species and previously abused animals find their safe haven....

We cannot praise the Betelnut Tours enough! We were picked up by Vathana and Phors in the car (unfortunately the Jeep was having problems, however we were very greatful for the car due to the heavy rain on the way there and the way back!) The drive to the rescue centre was fun, we enjoyed chatting to Vathana about how... More

Our recent trip to the Phnom Tamao Wildlife Rescue Center definitely made for a unique and fun day and I'd recommend it, however it did not live up to the advertising on the company's website. All four people in our group were really excited to "try some traditional khmer wine and can even chew some betelnut, if you are brave... More

Our trip to the mountain wildlife sanctuary was a fantastic one, with outstanding guides who looked after us so well. The food was delicious - a real feast of Khmer traditions. The two women guides, one who led us round and the other who prepared lunch, were both informative and entertaining, showing real passion for their work. The first part... More

Betelnut's tour of Phnom Tamao was undoubtedly the highlight of our time in Phnom Penh. The company rapidly responded to our emails for information and booking, and even emailed us to let us know that due to events happening in the city centre, they could offer us a pick up. The journey in the jeep to the wildlife centre was... More

our v adorable guide Paula was extremely friendly and knowledgeable, she's takes the kids and encourage them to feed animals whenever there's a opportunity. She even know which monkey or deer is aggressive and will shield the kids away. Coming from a country where the Zoo is top notch. Tamao Zoo is different as it allows you to feed and... More

We had an excellent day with Phors, she was a great tourguide. Nice way to travel outside the city by jeep and an unique experience to get close to the animals. Since it was only the two of us and Phors, we were lucky to have a personal tour guide :-) Well worth the money for a full day!

Adam really knew a lot about the animals and shared many interesting stories about what happened to each of them. He also knew the animals well so he knew just which animal we could touch and which animal we should stay away from. The lunch was amazing. It was a local lunch cooked by Adam's wife and it tastes just... More

Me and my partner visited this tour after reading about it on tripadvisor and it was a very good day out. Staff were excellent, the food at lunch time was amazing and the tour was even better. You get to see lots of animals, and they even dropped us back at our hotel. Excellent day out. Well worth the money!
