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.
The 15 luxurious tents at Shinta Mani Wild are raised above the ground, suspended over the edge of the waterfalls to allow the natural migratory movements of the forest inhabitants to continue below, and to provide sweeping views across the forest and river valley. Each tent is luxuriously designed in true Bensley style with tasteful local colours and fabrics, and fascinating trinkets reminiscent of the age of explorers and la belle époque. Guests can choose from a Wild Tent, a Waterfall Tent, or an expansive Two Bedroom Tent, and indulge in luxurious extras such as an outdoor freestanding bathtub. A Bensley Butler will be on hand to assist with all requests.
Sustainability informs everything they do at Shinta Mani Wild, hence their partnership with the Wildlife Alliance (whose rangers have an onsite station), and their resident naturalists, who assist the chef. The Shinta Mani Foundation spearheads their conservation and community outreach programmes, providing local employment via their hospitality school in Siem Reap. Guests can absorb the ethos on wildlife expeditions, foraging tours and more.
