Encounter Cambodia’s startling wildlife on a thrilling full-day cruise around Tonle Sap Lake from Siem Reap. Get a glimpse of local life on the water as you pass floating villages, markets and stilted houses, then enter the protected biosphere reserve of the Prek Toal Bird Sanctuary. Paddle around the flooded forests and swamps in a traditional flat bottomed boat, and look out for over 150 bird species, including Spot billed Pelican, Black headed Ibis, Grey-headed Fish Eagles and the rare Masked Finfoot. This small-group tour includes hotel pick-up and lunch.
Meet your expert bird guide at your hotel, and proceed via air-conditioned car or minivan to the boat dock area. Transfer onto a mini tara boat, a special flat bottomed boat driven by experienced local boat drivers. On the way to the Prek Toal Sanctuary, you will pass through the floating village where everything floats, including police stations, shops, schools, and markets.
Next, proceed across the great lake, Tonle Sap, and enter into the Prek Toal floating community. You will meet up with the local rangers and transfer onto their boats for the trip inside the Biosphere reserve. These boats are much smaller and can get in closer to the viewing platforms. For the keen bird watches, smaller row boats that will allow the local guide to row you up close to where the birds are nesting are used.
This is an incredible sight, as thousands of huge water birds call this sanctuary home. Afterward, head back to meet up with the mini taras, then cross the lake to meet up with the Queen Tara, in the heart of the floating village. There, you can enjoy a full lunch and drinks. Take sometime to relax on our plentiful hammocks or enjoy the stunning scenery from the biggest boat on the lake. Then meet up with your air conditioned minivan for the journey back to your Siem Reap accommodation.
