Welcome to Cambodia Bird Guide Association (CBGA)

Based in Siem Reap, the Cambodia Bird Guide Association is an NGO which provides birding tours and natural heritage tours across Cambodia. We are committed to the preservation of wildlife, nature and developing the livelihoods of people in conservation areas. We work closely with the provincial Department of Environment, in this regard, to raise awareness and educate local people on avian and environmental issues.


CBGA tours are led by professional local bird guides to 17 different destinations. These range from half a day tour in Siem Reap, to a full three-week tour across Cambodia. Contact us and we can help plan a perfect birding itinerary and an unforgettable holiday.

Birding and Ecotourism - Our Mission

The CBGA was founded in December 2016 by a group of accomplished birdwatchers and conservationists, who collectively have many years of experience, specifically in avian and wildlife preservation.  Our organization is dedicated to the protection of the environment and is actively working to make a difference in the Cambodian countryside.


We believe that through our birding and ecotourism initiatives, we can inform and influence the thinking of Cambodians.  Helping people to understand the value of the natural world and wildlife, then joining with us to protect that environment.  The role we play is designed to help local people develop their livelihoods, meanwhile ensuring a clean and sustainable environment for the next generation of Cambodians.
