Boarding the bus to Kratie...

There were about 1000 Irrawady river dolphins at Kratie a few decades ago but due to the exploitation of natural resources of Cambodia by unscrupulous Chinese, the dolphin population of Kratie and neighbouring Steung Trean has plummeted to less than a hundred. The local population of Kampi are extremely protective about the river dolphin and are making an all out effort to protect these gentle delicate creatures who show an almost human like intelligence. Spotting the river dolphin along the banks of the Mekong in Kampi is as exciting as a jungle safari in the wilds of Africa and one must visit Cambodia and experience the magic of spotting the river dolphin as it is a soul stirring journey.
