Travel Experience

Sam Veasna Conservation Tours is a globally unique and award-winning responsible tourism organization, running specialist birding and wildlife tours around Cambodia. We take travelers to the most important wildlife sanctuaries and protected forests, with the best chance to see Cambodia’s distinctive, rare and endemic birds and wildlife, travelling deep into rural communities with our highly-trained Cambodian guides.

Responsibility

Established in 2003 in memory of pioneering Cambodian Conservationist Sam Veasna, we were registered as a local NGO with the Ministry of Interior in 2006. We provide an alternative sustainable livelihood from ecotourism for the local communities at the sites that WCS prioritizes for conservation. In return for the income and employment received they are asked to sign no-hunting and land-use agreements, which are monitored by Ministry of Environment and the forestry patrol teams advised by WCS.

Business Case

We are a Non-Profit Organization. Any net earnings from providing ecotourism services are invested into conservation projects and the local communities for development projects in return for good environmental stewardship. We believe that it is necessary to provide alternative livelihoods in order to achieve sustainable conservation. By choosing to see Cambodia’s spectacular wildlife with us you are giving local communities those alternatives.
