My partner and I visit Cambodia few month back, and while there we did the Kayaking Dolphin Adventure. We loved paddling on the mighty Mekong, the rapids are not big but seeing the dolphins was wonderful. There is also lots of birds around and as my partner is a bird watcher this trip was simply perfect for him. I highly recommend these adventure tour. Thank you guys! :)

The Veun Sai-Siem Pang conservation area is one of Cambodia's treasures. Despite being around 8 hours from the nearest major city, it is worth the trip to see Gibbons in their natural habitat. The tour guides are amazing and have fantastic English skills, as well as an intimate knowledge of the flora and fauna of the area.

While planning a trip to Cambodia, I looked online for an eco-tour and found a Gibbon Trek coordinated by See Asia Differently. What a great experience!! 2 weeks ago they took me on a wonderful, once-in-a-lifetime, 5 day road trip through many Cambodian provinces that most tourists never see, and to spend a magical few hours with the wild Gibbons in the forests of Ratanakiri Province. The Gibbon Trek lived up to my expectations. After waking at 3:30am for the trek and a quick breakfast (plenty of good food for dinner, breakfast & brunch. I slept on a comfortable mattress under a mosquito net), we were hiking out of camp by 4:20am. Everywhere else I visited in Cambodia had humid, hazy skies, but in Ratanakiri Province the stars were bright and crisp. The sky was very clear with a bright ¾ moon lighting the trail, and the planet Jupiter right next to the moon. Hiking north towards the Big Dipper constellation, I kept turning around to watch the brilliant stars of Scorpio and Sagittarius. From my hotel in Ban Lung the night before and after, I had a great view of the Southern Cross constellation and the very bright planet Venus. After hiking to the right spot before dawn, in a patch of upland savannah next to the forest, I had about 20 minutes to enjoy the stars and see the profiles of huge, scattered Teak and Mahogany trees appear in the brightening sky and hills of northeastern Cambodia. The sounds of the gibbon calls, birds and even a loud deer call as dawn broke over beautiful Virachey National Park were breathtaking. My excellent Ratanakiri Gibbons guide, Saveth, explained how to tell the difference between the male call and the female call, and I was able to then pick out the different calls. After listening to distant gibbon calls from groups in the hills to the East for ~ 20min, Saveth said the gibbons we were looking for had started their song and we started running down a trail into the forest. What a thrill! Saveth and the local community guide, Mr. Neap, quickly found the group of gibbons. We watched and followed the gibbon family (mother, father, 2 young males and an infant) as they gracefully and quickly moved from tree to tree through the forest for 2 or 3 magical hours. Saveth shared a lot of information about the gibbons, the plants and about the legal and illegal logging issues in the area. While hiking back to camp, we saw a local man collecting Teak oil from a tree (a sustainable practice for the local people). Mr. Neap pointed out wildlife such as carnivorous Pitcher Plants, monkey signs, huge spiders and water buffalo & wild pig tracks. The previous day, Saveth took me on a motorized canoe ride up the Sesan River to visit a local “Hills People” village, which was a very powerful experience. Without working with See Asia Differently, I would not have had time to research and plan all the travel details and so I would not have seen the Gibbons, the stars and dawn of Ratanakiri Province, the Teak & Mahogany trees and carnivorous Pitcher plants of Virachey Park, and get a glimpse into the peoples and cultures of eastern Cambodia. I am so happy I found their website! Overall, I had a great time, and I highly recommend Saveth and the Ratanakiri Gibbons tour for wildlife and adventure enthusiasts.

We went on Gibbon Eco Tours for 2 days, 1 night. Our guide Savet was exceptionally good, very fluent in English and knowledgable of not only gibbons behaviour but also the forests flora and the state of the national park generally. We travelled on the back of a motorbike for just over 1 hour down paved then a dirt road (wear a face mask in the dry season), crossed the river by ferry and then a further 30 min down a dirt track. The base camp was basic but very authentic with rangers going off to tackle illegal loggers. Slept with a mattress on the floor and net (take Velcro to patch a hole or two). Got up at 3.30 and set off at 4.30 arriving at the area where gibbons are family of gibbons sleep an hour later. At first light you can hear the echoing sounds of their territorial calls. It took us about an hour to find them as they weren't sleeping in their usual patch. Saw a female with her 6 month baby as well as too of its older siblings. Stunning to see them swinging through the trees, though they do their toilet first thing so keep one eye out to avoid a dropping in the other. First rate experience. Jonathan & Amanda

We booked a 2 day 1 night tour direct with Conservation International ($150 for 2) & an English speaking guide (Sart) & motorbike driver through Parrot Tours in Banlung ($85). It was the most amazing experience ever. The gibbons were breathtaking & we followed them for about 1 hour. The local ranger & guide were brilliant. Highly recommend for a once in a lifetime experience
