Jungle luxe at Shinta Mani WildCardamom National Park, Cambodia
Arriving at Shinta Mani Wild via a 400-metre zip line over the rushing Tmor Rung River is just the beginning. This luxury glamping site combines world-class design by Bill Bensley, impressive hospitality and excellent conservation chops to create a luxurious private sanctuary situated at the confluence of three Cambodian national parks: Kirirom, Boko and Cardamom.
Some of the 15 glamorous tents – they have outdoor decks with slipper bathtubs – hang right out over the river and overlook waterfalls to create a truly unique jungle experience. All of them are set on stilts so as not to upset the migratory patterns of the wildlife.
The on-site bar and restaurant serves Khmer-inspired food created from locally sourced produce, while a spa offers services to help you unwind.
The sanctuary works with various organisations to protect the neighbouring 350 hectares of private nature reserve from poaching, mining and logging. You can even jump on the back of a motorbike with one of the rangers while they check for poachers and clear snares.
