We took a moto from Kampot to Anlung Pring which took us just under two hours. The roads were great and the closer we got to the sanctuary the more beautiful and exciting the adventure became. We visited some caves and drove along some beautiful...More
Just enough infrastructure to help enjoy observing the Sarus cranes and other bird life/fish life without becoming at all touristy or commercialised. Helpful guides who seem to love what they do. We were only there for an afternoon but I would recommend a morning and...More
Anlung Pring is known for the Sarus Cranes which are incredible but it is so much more than this. An amazing community experience awaited me with the generous time of Bona the community guide. I was so welcomed by the people of the area that...More
Beautiful peaceful and inspiring. Enjoyed our stay. Its a good combination of birdwatching, rural food, visiting traditional products, very convenient homestay and very beautiful landscapes. Very recommended.

They are usually here between late December and April, but to avoid disappointment, contact us for the latest numbers
We have a specially-built viewing tower, so that you can stay above the wetland and see the cranes without disturbing them. If you are technically-minded you can learn about them at the International Crane Foundation website.
The cranes are the stars but they also have a great supporting cast of animals: the water buffalo are so endearing we named our Buffalo café in their honour.
A local-life school like no other!
Take a tuk-tuk, motorbike, or car, to Anlung Pring. Our guide Bona will bring you out to see the cranes (December to April); then enjoy lunch in the Buffalo Café. You can even stay the night in our friendly local homestays, giving you time for a lesson in local cooking or handcrafts.
From Kampot and Kep
Take Highway 33 towards Kep (if you cross railway tracks or a river out of Kampot Town you’re on the wrong highway).
Travel through Kampong Trach and continue straight onto highway 31 for 3km and look out for the Crane signposts at the next junction.
Continue straight for 600 metres and take the right dirt track road with the Crane signpost.
From Kampong Trach
Travel straight down the dirt track road for 8km, then take the left turning at the T-junction and follow the road for 600 metres to the parking area.
If you are thinking about visiting the Kampong Trach caves, then make a day of it by coming the extra half hour to Anlung Pring.
You can even volunteer with us!
We exist to celebrate the cranes and local community. Non-profit organisations founded us and support us to benefit the wildlife and people of Anlung Pring. Simply by coming here you are supporting this work, and we thank you for that! Please spread the word! A good review online or an excited chat back in the city can help us.
