Mondulkiri Gibbon & Wildlife Safari, Trekking – but with a community based focus!
Hello! My name is Torn
I am a local guide from Senmonorom, Mondulkiri. I now run the Mondulkiri Gibbon & Wildlife Safari, supported by Bunong Elephant Project. It is an eco-tourism organization developed in consultation with the indigenous Bunong community in Andong Kraleng village. The Andong Kraleng village is located in the rural area and in the heart of the Seima Protected Forest of Mondulkiri, Cambodia where there are many difference kinds of Wild Animals living around there, such as elephants, bears, gibbons, black shanked doucs, Hornbills plus many others! Keo Seima Wildlife Sanctuary (KSWS) in eastern Cambodia’s Mondulkiri Province is home to the Jahoo Gibbon Camp, which lies in the core of the sanctuary in the Seima Forest. Covering some 2,000 km2 the KSWS is working with multiple partners to preserve this critically important habitat of endangered species.
The Mondulkiri Gibbon & Wildlife’s Safari main focus is to help to organize a safe and enjoyable trip to the Seima Forest on your Day / Overnight tour. As a community project, monies raised will be used to protect the forest from illegal logging, save endanger wild animals and to support the local community through providing good, safe jobs to Bunong people, as well as supporting education and welfare for marginalize for Bunong children and families.
Jahoo Gibbon Camp is a truly responsible tourism and conservation project that is home to seven species of Gibbon, including the yellow-cheeked crested gibbon. The camp itself is part of a key conservation project with the WCS and the indigenous Bunong people, an aboriginal Cambodian minority ethnic group. On this early morning walk with the Gibbon Research team you should also look out for Pig-Tailed and Long-Tailed Macaques and the silvery Lutung, also known as the Silvered Leaf Monkey or Silvery Langur.
