We were staying at a nearby hotel and decided to visit this centre.
We were warmly welcomed and advised to read the information boards before the tour began.
There were about 20 of us in this tour which I would say should be the maximum, to get the most from it.
We were given horrifying details of the mines and other UXBs still hidden around the world - and sadly still being made by America and Russia - and the obvious damage these inflict.
Then, we were introduced to Zeani a female Giant Tanzanian Pouched Rat and it was explained about their diet, training, ‘employment’ and then retirement.
These rats are exceptional in their ability to detect one trillionth of a gram of TNT up to one metre deep!
After a game to test all of our abilities to identify a particular scent, we were then taken back inside the centre to read more details of the centre and the charity work.
There is an opportunity to ask questions throughout this visit.
Donations are welcomed.
A very good, informative visit, which lasts about 1 hour. We highly recommend this!

One of the best things I’ve done in Siem Reap. It’s just 5 dollars for an incredible tour, you learn about how they train the rats and how many lives they have saved. Genuinely fascinating and an absolute must do.

This is such a unique and cool group to visit! It is incredible what they have been able to do in terms of demining in Cambodia. I would consider this a “Must Do” in Siem Reap. It took about an hour, and I felt like it was very worth it the time!

This is a must do in Siem Reap. For only 5 dollars (support to the project/entrence) there is a guided tour with an English speaking guide. You can ask all thee questions you want, and you learn much about this project!!
