About Wildlife Alliance
Wildlife Alliance is proud to offer an exclusive interactive behind the scenes tour that will allow you to experience Phnom Tamao Wildlife Rescue Centre (PTWRC) in a unique and personal way! You will be given VIP access to areas normally off display to the public such as our elephant area, tiger dens, nursery and rehabilitation section, to meet the animals and keepers who care for them. Highlights include feeding and interacting with our gentle female elephants, learning about our positive rewards based training when we change our male elephant Chhouk's prosthetic foot, up close encounters with tigers and leopards, and entering the enclosure to hand feed and play with our baby macaque monkeys! The cost is a tax-deductible donation and 100% of profits go directly back to our rescue, rehabilitation, care and release work in Cambodia! We look forward to introducing you to our animals!

This was by far one of my favorite days and experiences ever. I did plenty of research to find an elephant/ wildlife experience in Asia that is human and not animal abuse. With all the elephant riding places that is easier said than done. However, I can say with confidence that

Hello Jezzebelle, We are so grateful that you chose to support us through our tour! All profits from the tour go directly back into the care of our animals! Thanks to guests like you all of the lovely animals you met - and many more - now have the chance to have a better life, with others even a second chance at returning back to where they belong, the wild! Lunch is usually another highlight, our cook definitely gets lots of compliments on her food! Thank you for taking the time to write this review. Kindest regards,

We were very impressed with the whole experience. The guides are extremely passionate and knowledgable about the animals they care for, but also about educating visitors about ethical animal tourism. We heard so many fascinating stories and had real opportunities to interact

Hello Kate, Lovely to hear that you both had a great day. We pride ourselves on offering the balance between educating guests on conservation messaging and the truths of the illegal trade and offering a fun filled day where you get to be up close and personal with some amazing animals. All the while you are supporting those animals in having a better life with us and helping us to rescue, rehabilitate and release many others! Macaques are always a highlight, leaving a lasting memory! The interaction does not harm their chances of successful release. When they start to exhibit wild behaviours that occur with sexual maturity they are moved to a pre-release enclosure for a time before they are returned to the forest. We have had much success this way. Thank you again for writing this review. Wishing you the best in your future travels! Kind regards,

We really enjoyed the day, everything was very well organised - we were greeted by our tour guide Alyssa who was friendly and really helpful. Once at the sanctuary it was clear to see how much they truly love the animals - although the animals stories were sad, it’s fantastic to

Good Afternoon! Thank you for your kind words! On the tour it is important to learn about the animals, which often sadly includes the unfortunate circumstances in which they came to us. Realising that each animal has its own story makes it all the more meaningful when you meet them! Yes - from the large to the small, elephants and juvenile monkeys really leave a lasting impression on our guests, I am glad you loved them as much as we do! Kind regards,
