Small, personal tours around Phnom Penh. Take a daytrip to the Phnom Tamao Wildife rescue center where you get to pet and feed a variety of rescued and endangered animals, while being driven around by jeep. Or take a 2 day tour to the countryside to see the local life, some beautiful scenery, take a cooking course and spend a night at our family farm. Both trips include delicious home-cooked lunches and plenty of drinks.

We took the Phnom Tamao Tour. Animals and the guide who works with passion are what we remember. Aram was our guide. We are impressed by his knowledge about animals' habits. He describes history of rescued animals in a very interesting way. We saw lots of animals. They are frendly and you can pet them, even the elephant. During the... More

We booked an overnight tour with Betelnut tours, Phnom Penh, to head to the Kirrirom Mountains (the Kampong Speu Tour). The husband and wife team (Aram and Vathana) were incredibly friendly and helpful. We really enjoyed our two days with them, travelling to and staying in their farm house. Vathana is a great cook, and she cooked a great, typically... More

This is an amazing experience. A must when in Cambodia. The whole trip was awesome. Riding in the jeep, visiting all the different types of animals and the food... yum. Out tour guide Phors was very kind and helpful. She knew which animal were friendly and which were best to have caution around. I wanted to do this again. Thanks... More

Good value, this tour starts at a cafe in Phnom Penn, & drives to the wildlife park over an hour away. It's a very large park, so the seven on our tour (with our guide) walked through some of the park & sometimes driven to exhibits if they were far apart. We were not in a jeep as advertised, but...

Before we arrived at this center, we booked a tour with Betelnut Jeep Tours. I'm sorry but I'm disappointed having visited this center. I know that those animals are in danger and I trust in Wildlife Alliance that this center is just for recovering animals and not for making profit: but... The park is huge, but cages for animals are... More

Hi VeganPride, I'm sorry to see you had a disappointing day. Most of the things you mentioned are that way for a reason. Maybe we should have been more clear about explaining why the things are they way they are. We will pay more attention to that. I'll explain some of the things here as well, so hopefully you can...

What a fabulous tour! We are a British couple on our honeymoon, and not really the kind of people who usually go on organised tours. Whilst the price seemed expensive, we love animals and thought we'd treat ourselves. We were met by our guide Phors, who was friendly, bubbly and enthusiastic from the start. Inexplicably, another couple who had booked... More

We have had a great day with the people of betelnut jeep tours and with the animals at the wildlife rescue park. Our guide Aram (Dutch) knew a lot about the animals and was happy to share interesting information. The lunch consisted of nice homecooked dishes, Aram's wife Vathana is a really good cook. Because we were a bit late... More

Definitely one of the highlights of our stay in Phnom Penh. We were lucky enough to visit Phnom Tamao wildlife rescue center with Betelnut tours. Specifically, we got their new tour guide, Phors who was funny and amazing with the animals (most get more seasoned guids it sounds like). She is lucky I'm already married, otherwise what happened to Aram,... More

We took the tour to Phnom Tamao - what a gem of a tour. This exceeded our expectations. To have a sanctuary staff member as our guide meant we were able to get up close to see and interact with a lot of animals that we have only seen from a distance in zoos. As the jeep only takes 6... More

It was the personal touches that made all the difference. I booked a private tour which was very reasonably priced. Aram, Vathana and their cute dog came to pick us up from the hotel. It took an hour to get to the wildlife sanctuary and Aram introduced the different animals to us. We got to feed and touch them (the... More
