Visit Phnom Tamao Wildlife Rescue Center

Located less than an hour outside the capital city of Phnom Penh, the Phnom Tamao Wildlife Rescue Center is home to more than 1,200 animals rescued from the illegal wildlife trade. The center provides visitors an unparalleled opportunity to view dozens of Southeast Asia’s most endangered and vulnerable animals, including tigers, elephants, sun bears, leopards, gibbons, rare monkey species and Siamese crocodiles.

The Phnom Tamao Wildlife Rescue Center is open to the public every day of the year. Entrance is $5 for international visitors and 2000 riel ($0.50) for Cambodians.

To get to the Center, you can get a taxi from Phnom Penh for $35. If you would like to arrange a guided tour of Phnom Tamao, including transport, entrance fee, close encounters with the animals, and a traditional Khmer lunch, see our Wildlife Tours page for more information.
