We did 1 day tour, bird watching through the Sam Veasna Centre for wildlife conservation in Sen Monoram.

We met our guide Mogn the evening before the excursion for a briefing on the next day. This is great to have the opportunity to raise questions before, get a full briefing about what to bring, what to expect…

The next morning, we were picked up by Mogn early morning and went for Bird watching. Mogn is a bird expert and passionate. He spotted and identified several species of birds. Before the coffee break around 8am we already saw more than during the rest of our stay in Cambodia !
After the breakfast break, we went and stop at the Jahoo Gibbon Camp which is a great campsite on the edge of the forest. We trekked 2 times, one time before and one time after lunch. Lunch was taken in the base camp, the food was delicious and abundant.

The jungle is beautiful and trekking in such tropical forest is already an experience itself. We were lucky to observe gibbons, macaques, endangered gray-shanked douc langurs, squirrels, hornbill, doves, bulbuls, owls, …and many more birds which I forgot the names already !
Mogn had binoculars for us and a scope which allowed us to see all the animals clearly.

The cost of the day is not cheap but it supports the wildlife conservation and the local community.

In conclusion, I highly recommend all nature and animal lovers to do it!

Wir haben bei Sam Veasna das Yahoo Gibbon Camp für eine Nacht gebucht. Wie schon in Siem Reap hatten wir einen sehr versierten Guide. Auch hier wurde das Fernglas auf alle Wanderungen mitgetragen, so dass wir in Ruhe Vögel schauen konnten. Der lokale Guide hat sich sehr bemüht mit uns die möglichen Gibbonspots abzuwandern. Leider ohne Erfolg, dafür konnten wir 4 traumhaute einsame Wanderungen durch Bambuswälder und entlang der Flussufer geniessen. Kleideraffen haben wir kurz aus der Ferne gesehen. Die Tiere hier sind vermutlich sehr scheu, wurden sie doch in jüngster Vergangenheit noch bejagt. Schöne Sichtungen von Nashornvögel und ein Riesenhörnchen waren natürlich tolle Highlights. Die Übernachtung im Zelt um Längen gemütlicher und bessere Dusche/WC als auf dem Gibbontrip in Ratanakiri. Das Essen war super lecker.

Can only agree with the reviewer who paid USD 150 per person for the Sam Veasna trek into this not particularly well protected forest.

We booked the trip through the Hefalump café in Sen Monorom, but should have saved our considerable amount of money (USD 700 for a group of two adults and five children). The day was just a series of short walks into different parts of the forest from off the main road (our guide moaned about only having a regular two wheel drive pickup that meant he couldn't get any further in than just parking at the main road), after which we would look for wildlife through the guide's telescope, as well as smaller creatures (crabs etc.) that the guide found on the pathways and puddles.

The day itself was fine and enjoyable for both us and our children, but just massively overpriced compared to anything else we experienced during our four weeks in Cambodia.

You will also see lots of felled trees and illegal loggers walking around quite happily with chainsaws or carting off their wooden booty on the back of mopeds. The guides openly admit that the loggers just pay the police to come and go as they please, and our guide kept expressing his amazement after taking us to places he'd been to a month earlier (he lives in Siem Reap so was not even a particularly local guide himself...) so this all begs the question as to where visitors' money is being spent if it is not on protecting the forest.

Perhaps other operators offer better value but there is no specific review site I could find for the Sam Veasna tour, so my advice would be to shop around, find out exactly what you are getting (our guide wanted to give us a birdwatching tour, despite us being told at the Hefalump Cafe that we would be looking for monkeys...) and avoid the Sam Veasna rip-off prices!!

We organized through bamboo cafe a guide for visiting Seima protected forest, avoiding any elephant tour, for not supporting the local people abusing these amazing and endangered animals...
The guide was a very nice person and he could speak a fear English. Near the forest we met also another guide, who was part of the Bunong community and was incredibly good at reproducing the primates’ calls! The forest is beautiful but you can see the many trails (littered with some plastic bottles) and illegal logging activity all inside the forest, we also heard a chainsaw in action while we were there…

I did the 2 day, 1 night tour through the Sam Veasna Centre for wildlife conservation in Sen Monoram. We stayed at the Jahoo Gibbon Camp which is a great campsite on the edge of the forest with clean sturdy tents with beds with real mattresses and a block of western toilets and bucket showers. Sitting in the dining hut with a beer watching the sunset over the jungle was magical. Our guide, Samphos, was excellent, very knowledgeable about the mammal and bird life of the jungle. Of course seeing wildlife is always a matter of luck, but we saw langurs, gibbons, macaques, giant and variable squirrels, giant hornbill, and a huge variety of beautiful jungle birds such as sunbirds, leaf birds, doves, drongos, spidercatchers, bulbuls and many more. Samphos had a scope which allowed us to see them very clearly and take some amazing pictures, and he was able to follow up the sightings with illustrations from his bird book. We were all novice birdwatchers but came away with a wealth of knowledge. The food at the camp was excellent and we were very well taken care of. If you love spending time in nature I would highly recommend booking a tour through this organisation, who also support the local indigenous community through employing their guides.

My boyfriend and I did a trek with Sam Nang from Greenhouse tours in Sen Monorom and we really enjoyed it. With good chances of spotting monkeys, I hoped it would be a reasonably priced wildlife tour, and it didn't disappoint. $50 for a whole day, inc. bamboo soup lunch and water seemed a good deal.

Sam Nang speaks excellent english and, coupled with Ben, a local guide from the village, my boyfriend, another tourist and I spent the whole day looking for animals, learning about the creatures and their habitats, swimming in a waterfall, making lunch and talking about Cambodia.

Ben could spot animals hundreds of metres away, and so we saw Doucs, Hornbills, a Giant Wood Spider, a Giant Tree Squirrel, two parrots, an Empress Cicada and peacocks.

If you want to see animals, I recommend this!

I did a one day trip to see birds and primates, booked through Sam Veasna Centre in Sen Monorom at Hefalump Cafe. The Sam Veasna trips are not cheap as they have excellent quality guides and pay the Conservation Contribution, Forest Entry, and recompense the local community and local guides. But I thought it was definitely worth the money. I was picked up at my hotel and Pech, the Sam Veasna guide and I were driven to the base camp where we were joined by a local guide. Its hard to see birds in the forest, but we heard a lot and in the afternoon saw a number of species from a clearing. Pech had a spotting scope and a bird book and knew what he was doing. We also saw both the black shanked douc langurs and the yellow-cheeked gibbons, which are endangered species and hard to find.

The Seima Forest seems to be one of the places that has not (yet?) been totally decimated by illegal logging due to a partnership with several NGO's, the Forest Commission and the local community. By supporting community based tourism I hope I encouraged protection of the area, and believe me Cambodia needs all the forest protection it can get. If you are a birder, a naturalist, or just want a chance to spend a day in some pretty good forest then this is an excellent trip.

Food provided was adequate but basic as it had to be carried by the local guide in case we weren't near the base camp when it was time to eat. They also do an overnight version, they have tents on raised platforms and a very nice composting toilet with a view of the forest.
