Mekong River Dolphin in Cambodia 2020 - Best Time

The largest population of Irrawaddy dolphins, which are already extremely endangered, can be found in Mekong River running through Cambodia. They are considered as a very rare type of freshwater dolphin, so don’t miss a chance to see them in a natural habitat.

The best time suggested for this trip is from December to May, during the dry season in the country. During the rainy season, ​the water level rises considerably and the water tends to be dark due to mud.
