A comfortable 3-hour drive in southwestern direction brings guests from the Cambodian capital into the protected realm of the Cardamom Mountains, one of the country’s most lush and untouched parts of secluded and protected flora and fauna.

A meaningful stay for mind, body, soul and sustainability: Cambodia’s Shinta Mani Wild – A Bensley Collection is a perfect example of supporting and getting a behind-the-scene look into the ongoing poaching problems. Thick forests, gently flowing rivers and deluxe glamping with the sounds of nature as your sole companion, 3 nights of bliss and following in the footsteps of the Wildlife Alliance and their amazing work are so worth the journey from and to Phnom Penh.
