Botum Sakor National Park

Botum Sakor National Park lies to the southwest of the Cardamom mountains occupying 1,834 square kilometers of mangroves, beaches and hills. Part of the biodiverse Koh Kong Conservation corridor and home to an extraordinary wildlife such as elephants, deers, tigers, leopards and sun bears, Botum Sakor National Park is a Koh Kong tourist attraction not to be missed by the nature enthusiasts.

It is possible to reach the park either by road (it is actually being built) or by boat, although the latter is a better option to access to the flood plains, thick mangroves and the deserted beaches of the park. Boats can be taken from Andong tuek, Sihanoukville, Koh Sdach or Kron Koh Kong. Do not miss the fishing village Preak Khsach or the mangrove lined streams.

How much does a visit cost?

The entrance to the park is free of charge but once there, you will need to pay a ranger about US$5 per day.

When should I go, and how long do I need?

It is strongly advisable to arrive to the park early in the morning travelling from Koh Kong. With so much to see and travel times considered, it will take an entire day to see the most important parts.
