Prek Toal and the Bird Sanctuary
Spot billed pelicans
With its tropical climate and unique ecology, Cambodia is a spectacular place for the bird watcher and nature lover .At the north of Tonle Sap lake, Prek Toal is a fabulous place for seeing wildlife and birds. It the biggest bird reserve in SE Asia. Prek Toal is home to thousands of migrant birds including Whiskered Terns, Darters, Cormorants and Spot Billed Pelicans. Of great interest are the rare Adjutant and Painted Storks.
The early birds who go on our overnight Prek Toal Trips; can enjoy the pre-dawn atmosphere as we travel down river. We pass through the fish fencing protecting the fishing lots as we enter the Mangroves. We use open motor boats to travel to the Sanctuary; often we have canoes towed behind to get to more difficult areas areas when the water level drops.
Situated on the Sangkar River on the Opposite banks of the Tonle Sap From Siem Reap; Prek Toal is a relatively prosperous fishing community with over a thousand house boats and land houses. The Prek Toal HQ, has rooms where a few people stay overnight to watch the birds. There are very few tourist that stay overnight . This means the visitor can see a traditional fishing village without the crowds!
We have experienced guides who can help identify the dozens of species of birds to be found here.
