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. From the moment of arrival, criss-crossing the rapids via a 320m zipline, straight into the Landing Zone Bar, there will be no such thing as a typical day at Shinta Mani Wild.
Sustainability informs everything Shinta Mani Wild do, hence partnering with Wildlife Alliance (where we have an onsite station), and our resident naturalists, who assist our chef. The Shinta Mani Foundation spearheads their conservation and community outreach programmes, providing local employment via their hospitality school in Siem Reap.
Set on 1000 acres of pristine forest, the 14 one-bedroom tents (100sqm) and one two-bedroom tent (140sqm) have been meticulously designed to evoke world-renowned designer Bill Bensley’s vision of what it might have been like to be on luxury safari in the jungles of Cambodia with fashion and style icon Jacky Onassis, who travelled throughout the Kingdom with King Sihanouk in 1967.
It doesn’t stop there either, the dining possibilities at Shani Mani Wild are endless, whether you’re eating at The Headquarters, on the lawn, taking a cocktail class, or even having a waterfall picnic. Those wanting to relax can also make the most of the range of complimentary spa and massage treatments from wild’s team of therapists.
Guests can join Wildlife Alliance rangers as they set out to protect the forest from poaching, mining and logging. Other adventures for guests include ziplining across waterfalls, joining chefs on a foraging expedition, bird watching, butterfly ID, camera trapping, kayaking, hiking, and many others, each accompanied by an Adventure Butler who knows the forest by heart.
