Cambodia: Elephant Conservation + Teaching Children

Company : The Leap Overseas
Location : S E Asia
Duration: 6 weeks to 3 months
Approx Costs: 1750 to 3000+ £ Pound (UK)

Experience living and working in Cambodia’s hippest town, Siem Reap, on the idyllic beaches at Sihanoukville and deep in the jungle.  Help conserve elephants, teach orphaned children and assit local monks implement their  sustainable development projects.

Your time will be split between Cambodia’s hippest town, Siem Reap - where East fuses with West in spectacular style, the idyllic beaches at Sihanoukville on the gulf of Thailand and the rural paddy fields.

Soak up spell binding ancient culture, vibrant colours and the many flavours of Asia whilst contributing to life changing community and conservation projects, helping this beautiful country recover from a turbulent past.

In Siem Reap work with Cambodia’s orphans, build much needed wells and work with local monks who are helping to improve the quality of life for the local community.

In contrast experience the rustic charm of rural rice paddies outside Siem Reap, where villagers still live in jungle-bound houses on stilts. Here you'll help reduce water bourne diseases and bring fresh water to the community.

In Sihanoukville you’ll work with street kids at a drop-in arts project, helping them to create fantastic art and learn to express themselves in a safe and fun environment as well as supporting their education and helping to deliver basic medical care.

In Mondulkuri Elephant Sanctuary spend 2 weeks helping the Mahouts to protect these amazing creatures. 

At weekends you’re free to travel and explore, the choice is endless: visit the famous temples of Angkor Wat, trek through ancient jungles or just kick back and relax with a bottle of locally brewed ‘Angkor Beer’ on those fabulous palm-fringed beaches!
