This is a three-way initiative between Thai tourism brand Minor Group, Bangkok-based Yaana Ventures and Wildlife Alliance. This sustainably minded lodge on the banks of the Preak Tachan River is part of an 18,000-hectare eco-tourism concession and features nine well-appointed safari-style tents that fan out from a curvaceous wooden walkway. The chance to hike with the Wildlife Alliance team on genuine patrols is one of the big draws.
Initiated by the Wildlife Alliance, this community-led project lets visitors experience a homestay in a village on the forest edge, with the aim of offering locals the chance to earn an alternative form of revenue as hosts and guides.
This remote eco-camp is only accessible by boat and comprises 12 tented villas that float over the waters of the Tatai River – the gateway to Southeast Asia’s largest coastal mangrove swamps. Activities include bird watching, jungle trekking or taking a refreshing dip at the picturesque Tatai Waterfall. Sustainably built, the resort also works closely with the Wildlife Alliance and the local community on education and waste management programmes.
