Cardamom Tented Camp is an ecolodge located in the Cardamom Mountains in Cambodia. Offering nine luxurious safari-style glamping tents, the lodge aims to minimize the human footprint on the natural world and serve as a role model in promoting sustainable ecotourism practices within both the national park and Cambodia as a whole.
Located on an 18,000-hectare (180 km2) concession, the lodge and its surroundings are home to pristine lowland and coastal habitats linking wildlife corridors to the Cardamom Mountains. Eco-friendly trekking and kayaking packages are available for adventure enthusiasts who are keen to be a part of real conservation work.
The eco-camp is equipped with nine comfortable safari-style tents that minimize the human footprint on nature and promote sustainable tourism. Each of the nine tents provides visitors with a fully-enclosed and mosquito-protected 32.6m² canvas tent. In-tent amenities include Twin, Double or Triple beds; standing fans; bamboo and rattan furniture; bathroom facilities with hot water, rain showers, and locally-sourced soaps and shampoos; and spacious patios with sun chairs.
The tented camp features an open-air communal style Riverbank Restaurant with seating for 18 guests on a raised platform, patio and pier area, overlooking the idyllic, slow-moving Preak Tachan River. The Khmer chef offers an assortment of delicious local Khmer and foreign dishes in a Set Menu style. Vegetarian options are also available on request. The menu is based on the availability of local and homegrown produce, and dishes are cooked without any flavor enhancers or additives. A wide range of alcoholic beverages including beers, cocktails and wines, are also on sale at the restaurant bar.
Cardamom Tented Camp is a three-way initiative between Minor Group, YAANA Ventures and Wildlife Alliance to ensure the land and its biodiversity does not fall into the hands of loggers, poachers and sand dredging operations.
