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.

    • Trip to Siem Reap

      Sameer from Lotus Incoming was easily contactable when needed. He made all efforts to ensure I had a comfortable stay in Phnom Penh and Siem Reap. He personally came to receive me at the Siem Reap airport. The hotels he arranged for were top class and the tour guide in Siem Reap (Smith Chau) and the driver (Mav) were excellent. The car qualify was excellent too. I had a very pleasant trip overall and would highly recommend them,

    • Trip to Vietnam

      Had a good trip overall but had some issues: 1) Our flight booking done by Traveltriangle for BOM BKK sector, seats blocked were right infront of washroom and so was not total reclining and full of disturbances. For BKK BOM sector flight seats blocked all the way at the back thereby taking us time to board and deboard. If we had not blocked seats we may have for better seats. We had not asked for Hindu meals on flight but was served on all sectors baring BOM BKK sector as we had asked them to cancel. The flight from Hanoi to Siem Rep was late by more than 2 hours and we spend half day at airport. That flight ( Vietjet) has a reputation of being late and we repented being booked on it as whole day was wasted and we ended up reaching hotel by 11 pm. 2) Hotel experience was fairly good. At Hanoi the room allocated with triple bed was small and lacking proper seating arrangement. Overall staff very curious and breakfast okay although lacking variety for Veg and non pork beef eaters. Hotel at Siem Rep (Ankor Holiday Hotel) was not at all as expected. Although supposedly four star it lacked proper attitude of staff and general hygiene and cockroaches running all around room and washroom. On first day air conditioning not working on one room and staff refused to give us another room. Had to settle with a fan.in room instead. They were not accommodating at all. 3) Guides in both countries were knowledgeable and understanding. They took good care of us and our food. 4) We got email / call on last day regarding our insurance option for trip. If they had contacted us earlier we would not have to run around. We got all documents just before we left for airport which was very rushed. 5) Our advisor Karan took lot of time to sort out payment issues with overseas travel agent and we had to continuously follow up to make sure our trip would not get cancelled inspite of making payments on time. Our time in Hanoi which included the overnight Boat trip was definitely the best.moments. Siem Rep was a disappointment due to rushed up itenarary.

      Trip was well planned and lot of effort was taken by the agent to make us comfortable. Just one request try and get more well informed guides in Siam Reap. Also appreciate if the agent can give us updates on pick up time, guide name etc a day before instead of constantly asking for information since connectivity becomes an issue in many places

    FAQ's of Siem Reap

    Read on to find out why our customers love us!

     

    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.

     

    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.

     

    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.
