Fantastic on-site accommodation for Cambodia elephant volunteers

Volunteers at the Cambodia elephant sanctuary can now stay in rustic purpose-built hill tribe style accommodation on the project site itself, over-looking the stunning forested valley in remote Mondulkri, the province which is home to the project.

After a hard day’s work with the elephants and their mahouts, volunteers can now simply walk to their rooms, or chill out on the panoramic terrace before bedding down for the night. And at daybreak you can step straight out into the forest as soon as you awake.

Up until now volunteers have been staying in a guest house in Sen Monorom, the nearest town to the project, and travelling to and from the project each day. But this week the project was finally granted its license to accommodate volunteers on site.

The accommodation consists of Private bungalows with ensuite facilities and shared rooms or dorms with shared bathrooms with different price tags to suite different budgets.

Staff at the project are delighted that volunteers can now stay on site – although you will also be able to stay “in town” at weekends where you can try out the local food and drink at one of the traditional bars! One thing is for sure – being able to sleep in such an idyllic forest location, so close to the wonderful elephants that live at the project will make any volunteer placement at the sanctuary even more memorable.

The Cambodia Elephant Sanctuary is already one of our most popular volunteer projects and the new accommodation is likely to make it even more so, so make sure you apply early for your placement here.

 “Now I work full time at the project and my responsibilities range from working in the office, handling emails and creating the school’s newsletter, marketing and some fundraising for the school. I also arrange and give tours of the school to prospective donors and work closely with the volunteers. But, most importantly, I get to interact with the children! Seeing their happy faces every day makes everything so much more worthwhile for me! I’m so happy to be back in Cambodia helping these wonderful children and can see myself being here for the foreseeable future.”

There have been countless volunteers that have ended up working for Globalteer too, so have a look at our projects and see where you could start your journey!
