Trekking with Elephants in Cambodia
If you’re looking for an off-the-grid, ethical experience with elephants in Southeast Asia, look no farther than the Mondulkiri Project. This authentic NGO, founded by Mr. and Mrs. Tree just over two years ago, aims to protect forests from legal and illegal logging, while also providing a natural environment for elephants to live free from unethical tourism and working. As they experience greater success, they hope to implement an elephant breeding program. Through educating and employing over 200 Bunong people—the local, indigenous community that lives in this forest—and cultivating the surrounding forest, they are leading the charge for change, but they need help spreading the word and raising awareness. They are based in Senmonorom, Cambodia—just a five-hour bus ride from Phnom Penh or a 12-hour bus ride from Siem Reap. It’s $70/person for a two-day experience, which includes bathing and trekking with elephants, hiking through the forest, swimming under waterfalls, camping, and hanging out and eating with local Bunong people.
