Bokor National Park (BK)
Bokor National Park situated at 1,081 meters above sea level with jungle, waterfall, rivers, and ruins. It is located at the southern tip of the Elephant Mountains near the Vietnam border, and about 37 km west of Kampot in southern Cambodia.
As we ascend through the evergreen forest to Bokor we will start to notice species not found in other parts of the country, and by the time we reach the top of the escarpment, we will be in refreshingly cool, stunted montane forest, a welcome relief from the steamy-hot lowlands we have left behind.
Our key bird targets at Bokor are the near-endemic Chestnut-headed Partridge and Silver-breasted Broadbill, Long-tailed Broadbill, Indochinese Green Magpie, Great Hornbill, Wreathed Hornbill, Wedge-tailed Green Pigeon.
Kampot also a very nice place for shorebirds especially saltpans where we hope to find some shorebirds to add to our list such as Whimbrel, Sandpipers, Little-ringed Plover, and Red-necked Phalarope.
Rather than staying at the only accommodation offered by Sokha’s hotel group atop of Bokor Hill Station, we typically travel 40 minutes downhill to stay at Kampot town where there is variety choice of accommodation and food fit to our budget.
Length of tour: 3 days & 2 nights at a minimum.
