Khmer Dolphin

Kampi is the best place in Cambodia to see the rare Mekong River Dolphin.


Nowadays the dolphins live mainly in the rivers and waterways of Kratie and Stung Treng provinces. The number of these mammals is estimated to be between 40 and 60 and they are often seen travelling in small groups of 6 to 10 individuals. The females usually give birth to young once every two years most often during the months of June to August. The young dolphins are about 1m in length at birth and suckle milk. By adulthood the dolphins can attain a length of over 2.5m and weigh up to 180kg. Their diet consists mainly of small fish, shellfish and snails. The dolphins can swim at speeds up to 40km per hour and stay submerged for periods between five and ten minutes. Kampi Dolphin Site was established in 1999 to welcome international and local tourists and for scientific researchers to study the Mekong River Dolphin.


Be prepared before the journey begin:

  • 277km from Phnom Penh (5hrs)

  • There are motor boats available to shuttle visitors out of the Mekong River to see Dolphin at close quarters

  • The best time to see Dolphin is at dry season early morning and late afternoon.
