About Bird Watching in Prek Toal Bird Sanctuary, Siem Reap

There is a reason why the Prek Toal bird sanctuary within the Tonle Sap Lake Biosphere is called the most important breeding ground in South-East Asia for large water birds. Tonle Sap has three distinct ecological spheres within its vast expanse. Among them, Prek toal with its 31,280 hectares area of lowlands and swamps is the best refuge to the multitude of avian creatures that comes flying from up north to soak in the heat of the tropics, and also the best accessible one from Siem Reap. 

Bird-watching is the most popular activity here. Prek Toal bird sanctuary of Siem Reap is literally a paradise for the ornithologists and professional bird-watchers, or simply avian-enthusiasts. The eclectic variety of birds range from lesser and greater adjutant storks, milky storks, spot-billed pelicans, black-headed Ibis, painted storks, grey-headed fish eagle, Asian openbill and many other common, rare and rarer species of birds. These birds are not only spotted here, but they make big nests in the trees and the lowlands of the sanctuary for the time period of their breeding.  

Prek Toal is practically based around a floating village. As the wooden boats meander through the water streams and the forest gets denser, the fluttering of wings and cawing of voices increases – it creates an absolutely stunning scenario to behold. There will be occasional stops to witness the shenanigans of the birds from watchtowers.  

To find the right time of making Prek Toal bird sanctuary tour is a tricky thing. The weather conditions are best during the post-monsoon season when the sky is clear, but the streams are full to the brim. But there will be fewer birds to spot. The migration usually starts from December. So the time between December and February is ideal for a visit to Prek Toal bird sanctuary Cambodia.

    Sayoni Biswas

    Sayoni's 10 days trip to Siem Reap

    The tour conducted by Asia Authentic Travel was quite eventful. The itinerary was well set and the activities were arranged meticulously. The only thing is we as a family of 3 experienced some discomfort in our hotel at Saigon. The room was particularly small, amenities less and the room was not
    cleaned as well. The housekeeping staff did not seemed to attend to our room. We later on did say so at the hotel reception but it was too late and we were leaving the next morning. Ps- we stayed at Ann Harbour (Saigon) for 3 nights. Apart from that our hotel at Siem Reap (Tara Angkor Wat) was marvellous. Excellent buffet breakfast, overall great food at the restaurant too ! Phnom Penh hotel (Pacific) was good too, however it did not have a on site restaurant and we had difficulty accessing food later for dinner, buffet breakfast was okay. The hotel at Hanoi (Amorita Boutique) was alright but we had to ensure that we got breakfast (as promised) because their kitchen was still not ready to attend to visitors. The river cruise at Halong Bay (Renea) was amazing, we spent a great night there. There were too many activities, food was good and we enjoyed ourselves. Over all our drivers and tour guides were good, punctual, polite, well mannered and we had a memorable time travelling around Cambodia and Vietnam. Special thanks to Eric (Tuan) who conducted the tour and was constantly available during the whole trip via Whatsapp.

    Yashodhan's 11 days trip to Siem Reap

    The trip was very well organised. There were a few hiccups though. The Da Nang Red-Shanked Doucs monkey trip was a shambles. The jeeps made such a noise that the monkeys must have fled deep inside on hearing the sound! I had lugged my 100-400 telephoto all the way to be able to take a shot of these
    monkeys. The person conducting the trip was in a hurry of completing the trip. Apart from this deep disappointment, the rest of the trip was well executed. We needed a change of guides in Siam Reap which was done immediately. The Halong Bay cruise was supposed to be a 5* cruise but we did not experience it that way. The vehicles picked us on time and the crew appeared to put in extra effort to make us comfortable. All in all a good trip save for the couple of hiccups I mentioned. I would definitely travel again with Eric if he fixes these few lacunae.

    Manvir's 8 days trip to Siem Reap

    Ha long Bay cruise could have been better as the images shared and the cruise booked was a completely different one.Food was not that great with limited options when one has to stay for 2 nights as they serve same menu for the next night also,even after repeatedly telling to serve something differen
    t. Breakfast too was not that good. Next Ba Nah Hills trip could have been better as time spent there was too less to walk around the place. Time given was completely different from the itinerary provided. Definitely the 2 good locations of north Vietnam which are worth spending time and should be planned well.

    Read on to find out why our customers love us!

    When to visit Prek Toal bird sanctuary?

     

    The best months to visit Prek Toal bird sanctuary is from December to February. The time of the day right during sunrise and sunset gets the most bird-spotting.

    How to go around in Prek Toal bird sanctuary?

     

    Given it is pretty much a floating sanctuary, boats issued from the main office is the only way for tourists to go around the sanctuary.

    How many days does it take to see Prek Toal sanctuary?

     

    Usually day trips include a return by evening and it is enough to see a lot of birds during peak season. But agencies arrange for overnight stays as well, for a thorough tour for wilderness enthusiasts.
