BOOK YOUR STAY WITH US
Since the project is coordinated by a small team of volunteers, we kindly ask you to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org prior to joining us. That way we can prepare your stay with us and double check that we are indeed running a tour on your preferred date. Also, one needs to be aware that during the height of the rainy season (from July to September) it is sometimes physically impossible to participate in all of the activities offered in the tours to the Areng Valley.
Once we have confirmed that the dates are fine, we ask for a payment of a deposit, equal to one third of the cost of the trip, or US$53, to be made in order to proceed with the booking. The remainder of the cost of the cost of the trip (US$107) is paid upon arrival. (Note that the payment of the deposit is used by our coordinators and the local communities to pay in advance for some of the costs related to your trip, such as motorbike trip to the valley, hiring of local guides, etc)
There are three ways to pay for your deposit:
1) If you already are in Cambodia, via Wing, (Cambodia's own version of Western Union);
Wing is a system that allows you to easily send funds within the country. Although you do not need to show a passport / ID, they will ask you for a valid Cambodian phone number, and will ask you to give them the phone number of the receiver of the funds. They will then give you a code, which we will need in order to access the funds from where we are. Wing is present in all major cities / towns and it can be in a phone shop / money exchange / etc. Note that transaction fees ($1,50 in total) should be charged to the sender.
2) If you are abroad, and already have a PayPal account:
You can send the funds as a donation to Mother Nature Cambodia, the registered non-profit charity that coordinates the Wild KK Project; Enter your PayPal account and send us the funds to email@example.com (Note that payment fees, if any, should be on the sender and not on the receiver).
3) If you are abroad, and do not have a PayPal account:
You can also pay securely by credit card. Send us an email for guidance on how this might be done.
