Welcome to the Mondulkiri Project

My name is Mr Tree. I hope you will come and visit the 5 elephants living at the Mondulkiri Project elephant sanctuary.  We offer amazing one and two day elephant tours.

The Mondulkiri Project is a registered Cambodian NGO. Your tour money is used to protect forests for our elephant sanctuary. Money is also used to buy and rent elephants so they can live at our sanctuary and be kept away from elephant rides and heavy farm work. Our NGO also funds wild elephant protection and supports the local Bunong hill tribes with employment, medicine and food donations.

We are 100% Cambodian, and not owned and managed by foreigners. We empower locals by providing them with jobs at our sanctuary. We do not believe in having Western tour guides or Western volunteers taking paid work opportunities away from locals.

Elephants in Cambodia

Elephants in Cambodia are an endangered species. They are threatened by a loss of habitat, by poaching, and by being caught in snares.

Elephants have played an important part of the history of Cambodia. They were used to move the large heavy stones used to build Angkor Wat temple.

There are approximately 75 captive elephants in Cambodia. About 50 of these live in Mondulkiri Province. 14 are used for elephant rides at Angkor Wat temple in Siem Reap.

In the forests of Cambodia there are approximately 400 elephants living in the wild. About 250 of these live in Mondulkiri Province. Another large population are in the Cardamon Mountains to the east.

As more roads are built in Mondulkiri, more logging and habitat destruction is further endangering the future of elephants in Cambodia.

They say an elephant never forgets. We promise you that you will never forget the elephants that you will meet when visiting the Mondulkiri Project elephant sanctuary.

Jungle Trekking

Visit the jungles of Cambodia.

Mondulkiri, Cambodia

Mondulkiri is the largest province in Cambodia. It is 6 hours drive east of Phnom Penh and 8 hours drive south east of Siem Reap. It borders with Vietnam to the east and Ratanakiri Province to the North.

Not many tourists visit Mondulkiri so it is a good place to escape the crowds and enjoy fresh mountain air.

Sen Monorom is the major town in the province of Mondulkiri. One of the first things you will notice about Sen Monorom is that the climate is much cooler than the rest of Cambodia because it is located 800m about sea level.

The main thing to do on your visit to Mondulkiri is to visit our elephant sanctuary. Jungle trekking and visiting waterfalls are also popular activities. Coffee plantations and avocados are specialties of the area.

Unlike other areas of Cambodia, the majority of people living in Mondulkiri are not Khmer. Instead they are local indigenous Bunong, or hill tribe. The Bunong have been using elephants for transport, farming and logging for many years. They also have small farms cut into the jungles where they grow food to sell at the markets in Sen Monorom.
