Bird Sancturary Prek Toal

Your stay in Siem Reap / Angkor would be incomplete without visiting the largest fresh water reservoir in Southeast Asia with the highest biodiversity in the world! Enjoy a environmental discovery with small boats to thousands of birds in the flooded forests of the Tonle Sap Lake. We visit the Osmose research centre, learn about their important activities to preserve this unique natural heritage. The absolute highlight of this tour is the drive in small two-persons boats.

Guest's comments


"Starting in the morning after travelled two hours, we reached a tree look out post in the middle of the PREAK TOAL!. The birds scenary is fabulous. Thousands of birds of several kinds of spieces are clustered around dozen of nesting trees. With the professional guide, we were able to identify all of them. After that we were able to approach the nesting trees in close distance on small boat. It's really a memorable experience. All the guides and locals we met during this trip are very hospitable and helpful. The professional guide knowing exactly the place to stop to watch various birds, making the whole trip worthwhile."
