Prepare yourself for a full day of new experiences. Excursions around 4 Rivers Floating Lodge

Leaving 4 Rivers around 10am, depending on the tide, you will cruise deep into the mangroves to experience a rare glimpse of life among the fishing communities that live off the natural bounty of this watery paradise.

Drinks will be served en route as you glide down the waterway to your fishing village destination where you will spend time with these shy but friendly people. While the men tend their boats, the womenfolk patiently mend their nets and children play tag and football in the narrow alleyways between the stilt houses.


You will also visit the Cham (Muslim) part of the village, which is reached via a maze of small bridges.
Back in the boat, you will experience the pure magic of life among the mangroves from our boat and the kayaks.

Some degree of fitness is necessary for enjoying this trip to the full.

Away from the tranquility of 4 Rivers Floating Lodge, the thunder of the majestic Tatai Falls reveals the river’s true power as it drops 6 meters to the rocks below.

Your day, depending on the tide, starts at around 10am for the 45-minute boat ride past Tatai village to the falls.

Turning on to a tributary you head into the heart of the Cardamom jungle to the far-off sounds of exotic birds and its secretive wildlife.

Within minutes you are at journey’s end, gazing down into the turbulent waters of the falls.

Soon it’s time for lunch, maybe a few moments hydro-massage and a refreshing drink as you find some shade for a picnic and open your senses to the sights and sounds of the jungle. We will also arrange to transport some kayaks for your added fun and adventure.

After leaving the falls, we stop at the mouth of a small river where you can paddle your kayak to a traditional Cambodian farm; you will see rice fields and some fruit trees depending of the season.
