Cambodian Jungle Shrouded in Mystery
Lying on the coast of Cambodia directly across the bay from Sihanoukville and at the base of the Cardamom Mountains, Botum Sakor National Park is one of the largest in Cambodia, yet lays shrouded in mystery and remains mostly unexplored. The majority of Botum Sakor’s area is comprised of gently sloping lowland covered by evergreen forests, grasslands, coastal flood plains, mangroves and swamp forests.
Playing host to some of the most endangered animals in the world including the pleated gibbon, wild Asian elephant, Sunda pangolins, Bengal slow loris, fishing cats and hog deer, Botum Sakor National Park provides a fascinating glimpse of the rapidly fading ecology of Southeast Asia. According to recent footage obtained by a camera trap placed by local conservationists, Botum Sakor is even home to the critically endangered Indochinese tiger!
