Cambodia Wildlife Sanctuary
After a wonderful breakfast and chance to swim in the lovely pool, we will be picked up by our driver for a short drive over good roads, to the world famous Cambodia Wildlife Sanctuary. Spending time at this sprawling and lush jungle sanctuary we will have a chance for light volunteering, preparing food for the elephants, and rescued primates including gibbons and macaques! We will have an opportunity to meet world famous Kaavan, the former "World's Loneliest Elephant" who was rescued from a terrible zoo in 2020 thanks to a huge international effort and support from superstar Cher! We will enjoy an overnight in one of the basic but comfortable eco bungalows* Highlights include relaxing jungle walks to spend time with the rescued "lady" elephants like Arun Reah, who was saved from a lifetime of work! After 2 glorious days and one peaceful night we will return to the excitement of Siem Reap for a chance to enjoy a fantastic meal and relaxation!
*Please note, bungalows at Cambodia Wildlife Sanctuary are basic and shared.

Breathtaking UNESCO World Heritage site Ankor Wat is thought to be the largest temple structure on earth. Built over 900 years ago at the height of the Khmer empire, this sprawling archeological site has featured in countless films. No trip to Cambodia would be complete without a chance to explore this awe inspiring place.Arte for Elephants is pleased to include this once in a lifetime opportunity to experience Sunrise over Ankor Wat! Our full day excursion includes the services of an expert, English speaking guide and refreshing lunch.
After a day of marvels we will return to our wonderful hotel for a chance to reflect upon this glorious experience and our farewell feast!
The next day you will be transferred to your hotel for your onward journey.
