Luxury Meets Conservation at Cambodia’s Shinta Mani Wild
Shinta Mani Wild is a radical new fusion of world-class design, hospitality, and conservation. The camp was born when world-renowned designer Bill Bensley identified an unprotected, 350-hectare wildlife corridor – and set out to save it from poaching, mining, and logging. Among the lush jungles, waterfalls and rivers are 15 beautifully designed luxury tents that individually resemble Jackie O Kennedy’s 1967 iconic safari to the Kingdom of Cambodia. It’s a little bit of elegance, a little bit of nature and a whole lot of Bensley.
Enjoy a day exploring the waterways of Southeast Asia’s last wild estuarine ecosystem on the Bensley pontoon boats, or accompany rangers and researchers as they check the lands for illegal activity. For others who wish to take things easier enjoy the Boulders Spa that offer a full range of treatments in the tranquillity of the lush surroundings.
