Okoki is located remotely in Preah Vihear Province near the Laos border in Chhep Wildlife Sanctuary, where pools of mixed evergreen forest following a watercourse provide habitat for globally endangered bird – White-winged Duck.
The local villagers are one of the main stakeholders in the bird-conservation, assisting as service team for setting up the camp, cooking and local guiding.
White-winged Duck, Bar-bellied Pitta, Banded Broadbill, Banded Kingfisher, Green Peafowl, Siamese Fireback, White-rumped Pygmy-falcon, Oriental Bay Owl and Blyth’s Frogmouth.
Since Okoki is a remote area, the only accommodation available is camping on safari style tents among the tall trees, set up by the local community of Dangphlet.
5 hours from Siem Reap, 3 hours from Tmatboey, 1 ½ hours from Vulture Restaurant, and 3 ⅕ hours from Kratie. The access in the wet season is almost impossible when some part to Okoki are cut off due to the rain and flood.
A trip to Okoki is recommended in the dry season from December to March and usually done as 2-nights (one night if in a hurry) add-on in an itinerary that combines with other sites of the northern plains like Tmatboey.
