This zoo and wildlife rescue centre, 40km outside Phnom Penh city, was set up to preserve and rescue rare and endangered local wildlife including tiger, lion, deer, bear, peacock, heron, crocodile and turtle. Eighty hectares of the total area have been established as a national zoo and up to 1,200 hectares have been reserved for its future extension and development. At the top of the hill theres an Angkor temple, Prasat Tamao, which was built in the century before Angkor Wat.
