Cheaper and easier to volunteer with Cambodian elephants

New accommodation at Globalteer’s Cambodia Elephant Sanctuary project has just made volunteering with elephants easier and cheaper than ever before.

The project has recently added four backpacker-style rooms to its existing private bungalow accommodation (pictured below, left). These additional room options now make volunteering with this amazing project in the heart of Cambodia’s beautiful and remote Mondulkiri province a much more affordable option for those travelling on a budget.

The new building, constructed from materials including bamboo, local timber and grass, consists of one twin room, two singles, and a triple, making it perfect for solo travellers, couples, and groups of friends travelling together.

There is a small shaded terrace overlooking the wooded valley (pictured below, right) where you can sit at sunset and listen to the gibbons in the forest, a shared ablution block with toilets and cold water showers and the project’s main house with volunteer lounge and restaurant is just a short uphill walk away.

Whilst there is no air conditioning, rooms have a window with shutters to let in that cooling breeze and each bed is equipped with a mosquito net to keep those annoying critters away at night.

Volunteers who choose to stay in the new budget accommodation instead of the private bungalows can make a saving on the required donation of £140 or $210 on a one week placement and £240 or $360 on a four week placement.

This project is very popular so the new accommodation means that more volunteers can now experience working with elephants in Mondulkiri province. However, applying as far in advance as possible will increase your chances of securing a place at a time that suits you.
