This documentary tells the story of Chenda, a poacher-turned tour guide who used to hunted gibbons for $200. Now he earns money by taking tourists to visit the same gibbon, over and over again.

The Cardamoms are one of the last large rainforests in Southeast Asia, and home to over 50 threatened species, including Asian elephants, sunbears, clouded leopards, pileated gibbons and countless bird and reptiles.

šŸŽ¬ The documentary is created by Axel and Ario Drioli ā€” two brothers on an overlanding exploration journey capturing wildlife stories. Learn more about them at

This is a great documentary I discovered (thanks to @travelfish) about wildlife poaching in Cambodia ā€” and a surprising story of a poacher turned tour guide.

The documentary is designed for VR but you can watch it on any device ā€” it's got some great sounds of the jungle so bring your headphones.

Chi-Phat is a Cambodian village located in the Cardamom Mountains at Koh Kong Province, south-west Cambodia.

Cheers for the plug. Iā€™m not normally much of a fan of virtual tour type things, but this was the bomb. The night stuff with a headset is A+
