Bear Rescue Project, Cambodia

My scores speak for themselves! Cambodia is a wonderful country and I felt very safe wherever I went - the people are engaging and very welcoming, always smiling and willing to help. But the stars were of course the bears! I had the most amazing experience and it was an absolute privilege to be so close to such fantastic animals. The bears are intelligent, funny and delightful - my biggest challenge was not being able to cuddle them! I have absolutely no hesitation in recommending this experience and hope more volunteers will sign up to support the Bear Rescue team in Cambodia with the wonderful and extraordinarily worthwhile work they do in caring for these wonderful animals.
