Cambodia Wildlife Sanctuary

The Cambodia Wildlife Sanctuary is a one-million-acre jungle and wildlife conservation project.

Founded in 2004 in partnership with the Cambodian government, the Sanctuary is committed to protecting and rehabilitating diminishing jungle habitat and wildlife, as well as employing and empowering the local community.  Previously known as the Kulen-Promptep Sanctuary, the Cambodia Wildlife Sanctuary is located in the provinces of Preah Vihear, Siem Reap, and Odor Mean Chey.



In partnership with Save Elephant Foundation, the Cambodia Wildlife Sanctuary hosts a unique and exciting ethical eco-volunteer program.  Eco-volunteers are able to stay on the Sanctuary and assist in a variety of capacities, including gardening, fence-building, tree re-planting—and everyone’s favorite, cutting fruit for our gorgeous elephant friends, Arun Rhea and Kham Lin.

Cambodia Wildlife Sanctuary Reviews

One amazing week with elephants <3

I spend one week in the Cambodia Wildlife Sanctuary during my trip around the world. The staff is amazing, the project is organized very well and the food is brilliant. The time in the Sanctuary gave me amazing memories: being so close to the elephants, caring for them & getting more knowledge about them, supporting the running (work-) projects and having an awesome time with the other volunteers! If you have the chance, go!

One of the best experiences of my life

I went to work with the elephants at the Cambodia Wildlife Sanctuary which I arranged through Reach Out Volunteers. All the people are amazing, the food is outstanding and the elephants are mesmerizing. I would definitely recommend to people of all ages and backgrounds. I did not want to leave the jungle!!
