About Cambodia Bird Guide Association
Cambodia Bird Guide Association (CBGA) is an NGO in Siem Reap which provides bird watching and eco-tours across Cambodia. We are committed to the preservation of wildlife, nature and developing the livelihoods of people in conservation areas. We work closely with the provincial Department of Environment, in this regard, to raise awareness and educate local people on avian and environmental issues. CBGA tours are led by professional local bird guides to 17 different destinations from Siem Reap, Angkor Wat, Prek Toal, ATT, Koh Ker Beng Mealea, Florican Grassland, Tmatboey, Okoki, Vulture Restaurant, Kratie, Bokor, Phnom Aural, from ½ day to 3-week trip. CBGA was founded in December 2016 by a group of accomplished birdwatchers and conservationists, who collectively have many years of experience, specifically in avian and wildlife preservation. Our organization is dedicated to the protection of the environment and is actively working to make a difference in the Cambodian countryside.

Took a morning tour 5.30-10am in July 2020. The tour was organised at short notice and picked me up from my hotel by tuk tuk to go to our first location. The guide was very knowledgeable and passionately showed me the birds in the area, stopping the tuk tuk on the way when he spotted something notable. We stopped at 4 or 5 locations, the last at the near threatened Asian golden weaver nests they've recently located. Their conservation work is supporting locals to protect the nests too. The guide had a monocular and was quickly able to set it up to capture the best sightings. We spotted over 25 species and I was thrilled with the tour. At $50 I found the tour reasonably priced for the quality of the guide's knowledge and variety of locations we visited. Highly recommended for any emergent or experienced birders.

I took a full day tour in the Prek Toal biosphere, and saw large numbers of birds - many "lifers" for me! Although it was a bit pricey for a solo traveller, it was all inclusive - breakfast and lunch and door-to-door transportation. We were out for almost 12 hours and the guide, Brak was an excellent birder - recognizing species by their calls as well as by sight. I was very impressed by the passion that the CBGA has for conservation and the provision of alternative sustainable livelihood opportunities for the local populace. Highly recommend for birders and wildlife photographers!

We spent few days in Mondukiri province to have some wildlife experience. Thanks to CBGA we had a great experience. Sleeping at the Jahoo Gibbon camp gives you the authentic feeling of the forest. Mogn Pech (Diamond) is a very experienced guide and helped us to get good photo of the gibbon and the douc. Moreover many many birds. All the team is very kind. Unfortunately there is some deforestation and hopefully all the efforts that CBGA and other organisations do to develop sustainable tourism, will help to protect wildlife and the forest. Travelling to Cambodia made us feeling at home 🙏

We visited the Tonle Sap lake and the Pref Toal biosphere. I would really recommend the trip. Our guide Sean was excellent.

I had just one day to get out birding while visiting my non-birding son in Phnom Penh. Our guide had us picked up at our Airbnb promptly at 6 AM. My son joined us and we had a great day. The ebird hotspot called Cambodian Tayorbird Hotspot in the wetlands north of Phnom Penh were very productive in the morning. We saw not just the endemic Cambodian Taylorbird, but 3 species of bittern, and a nice variety of passerines and water birds. We had a nice lunch in the city then birded at the urban forest around Wat Phnom in the afternoon. For sure if possible spend more time and get around the country, but I can recommend CBGA as a guide service.
