ATJ'S TOP 4 ECO-FRIENDLY CAMPING
Cardamon Tented Camp - Cambodia
Cardamom Tented Camp is a new initiative that offers eco-friendly experiences to adventure enthusiasts interested in being a part of real conservation work. The eco-camp is home to nine comfortable safari-style tents located inside Botum Sakor National Park that minimize the human footprint on the natural world and serve as a role model in promoting sustainable tourism practices in the park and within Cambodia as a whole.
The desire to create the camp grew out of a concern that an 18,000-hectare (180 km2) concession would fall into the hands of loggers, poachers and sand dredging operations. The tract of land is home to pristine lowland and coastal habitats linking wildlife corridors to the Cardamom Mountains.
The safari-style camp includes nine furnished and comfortable boutique tents, each with a private bathroom.

Discover a variety of birds, unique to this area, on the shores of the local lake. Your safari would not be complete without a jungle experience in search of the big cats, the tiger and the leopard.
Walk on the abundant trails, listen to the many sounds and enjoy the quiet. Or, we can arrange a village visit to a local community and learn their way of life.
With a wealth of ultra-luxurious accommodation options, you can make yourself supremely comfortable in the luxury rooms in the main building of the lodge, which dates back to the 1940s. Or our thatched-roofed luxury villas are ideal for families seeking a more personalized holiday experience.

Shinta Mani Wild - Cambodia

The “Boulders Spa” meanwhile is a full service Khmer Spa featuring natural, chemical-free products by Khmer Tonics.
