Bird Watching Tours
For many years Cambodia suffered from a seemingly unending civil war, which effectively closed the country off to visitors. Finally however this conflict ended and Cambodia is now open to the outside world and is welcoming tourists. Certainly the most outstanding tourist attractions are the temples surrounding Siem Reap in the heart of the Khemer Empire - an empire that lasted from the 9th to the 15th centuries. The best known of these temples is Angkor Wat, with its soaring towers and intricate wall carvings, but many lesser known temples abound, some growing out of the dense jungle that has reclaimed them over the centuries. Beyond the archeological highlights, which are spectacular in themselves, Cambodia also offers outstanding bird watching opportunities. Many of the larger species that have largely or completely vanished from surrounding countries can still be found in Cambodia, sometimes quite commonly. In particular, we have a chance of seeing seven species of stork - including the highly-threatened Milky Stork and the Greater Adjutant along with Sarus Crane, Spot-billed Pelican, Bengal Florican, and the highly-endangered White-shouldered and spectacular Giant Ibis. While vultures have virtually disappeared from Southeast Asia, moderate numbers of up to three species still occur in the Chep district of northeast Cambodia, which we'll visit. Cambodia's dry savanna and dipterocarp woodlands are probably the most pristine in Southeast Asia and here a number of specialized land birds can be found, including up to a dozen species of woodpecker. We'll also visit the great Mekong River in search of the newly described and striking Mekong Wagtail and the endangered Irawaddy River Dolphin.
