Kayaking with Mekong Dolphins

This active wildlife experience on the Mekong allows you to paddle through a rarely-visited region of northern Cambodia to the dolphin pools of Kampi, and get the chance to see these wonderful creatures up close without the distraction of a motor from one of the normal tourist boats. There is a colourful variety of birds, butterflies and aquatic life to see along the way, and opportunities to stop for a swim on one of the many sandy river islands. The adventure starts with a drive from your hotel in Kratie to the kayak launch point, from where you start paddling down the west bank of the Mekong. Weave through flooded forest and pass Mekong islands, where there are opportunities to take a break on one of the sandy beaches. Continue to the swirling pools at Kampi to enjoy the unique perspective of seeing the rare Irrawaddy dolphins from the peace of your kayak.
