Cardamom Tented Camp Announces Two New Ecotourism Experiences

The Cardamom Tented Camp in Cambodia has announced two new conservation tourism initiatives: a 5D/4N wildlife release “Adventurer” package linking the camp with the Chiphat community tourism project, and a 3D/2N “Jungle Camp” package using tentsile tree tents. “Our two new conservation packages add variety to the immersive nature experience of Cardamom Tented Camp,” says Allan Michaud, lodge manager of the camp, which is one of three global finalists in the “Changemaker” category of the 2019 Tourism for Tomorrow Awards. This year, the awards recognise leading ecotourism initiatives around the world that are making a stand against illegal wildlife trading and habitat destruction.

Advantages of Seriously Grounded Educational Travel

Why Students Should Travel Before University One of the biggest decisions a student has to make is whether to go straight to university or take a gap year. While there’s always the chance of students traveling after their degree, many universities now encourage high school students to travel before they enrol. At GROUND Asia they subscribe to the viewpoint of Maya Angelou: “If you are always trying to be normal, you will never know how amazing you can be.” More reasons to travel from GROUND Asia here.
