Experience Cambodia with AusCam and
travel with purpose
Join AusCam Freedom Project and Soulful Discoveries as we take you on an unforgettable journey to Cambodia, a fascinating and majestic country with a painful yet inspiring history. You will meet with some amazing humanitarians & social justice advocates who are working to forge a new hopeful future. From urban Phnom Penh to traditional villages in the countryside, we will encounter activists who are empowering the Khmer people to demand a voice in their country’s development. You will fall in love with the natural beauty of the landscape, be inspired by people who have lived through war, genocide and extreme poverty and yet still exude warmth, hope and courage.
Soulful Discoveries is a social venture and initiative of AusCam Freedom Project in partnership with Lana Kanchik - Personal Travel Manager of Travel Managers Australia. This experience has been designed to give participants an authentic and meaningful travel experience that integrates sightseeing and cultural immersion with an experiential learning opportunity.
This thoughtfully crafted journey will offer exposure to leading humanitarians and social justice advocates whose lives are dedicated to turning extreme adversity and disadvantage to opportunities for growth, resilience, healing and hope.
Soulful Discoveries is much more than a travel experience – it is one centred around engagement and learning and offers you the opportunity to dive deep into the issues of injustice – to be engaged intellectually and emotionally in a new community – and to learn and grow through that first-hand experience. It is not about teaching English, working in orphanages or building houses or schools; it is introducing participants to the history, political, social, economic, cultural and spiritual life of Cambodia. Importantly, it is also about exploring diversity, adversity and disadvantage through a lens of compassion and sensitivity.
Our hope is through your experience with us you will embark on a transformative journey to live an authentically empowered life rich with meaning, connection, purpose, and gratitude.
Soulful Discoveries also benefits the communities you will visit. We are driven by purpose not profit, therefore, all profits contribute towards our work in the field tackling poverty, inequality and disrupting the chain supply for trafficking and exploitation of young women and girls.

The Kingdom of Cambodia, formerly Kampuchea, is a Southeast Asian nation that borders Thailand, Laos, Vietnam, and the Gulf of Thailand. The capital city is Phnom Penh. Situated in the southwest of the Indochinese peninsula, Cambodia occupies a total area of 181,035 square kilometres and borders Thailand to the west and northwest, Laos to the northeast, Vietnam to the east, and Gulf of Thailand to the southwest. Like most of Southeast Asia, Cambodia’s climate is hot and warm almost all year round. The climate is dominated by the annual monsoon cycle of rainy and dry seasons. The rainy season lasts from May to October, and the dry season from November to April. December to January are the coolest months, while the hottest period is in April.
Although Cambodia is one of the most beautiful counties in south east Asia it is also one of the poorest with many Cambodians living on under $2.00 per day. More than 50% of the population is under 30 years of age—a legacy of the Pol Pot Khmer Rouge Genocide where close to 2.5 million people lost their lives. Cambodia has undoubtedly come a very long way since those dark days and today you will be touched by the warmth and ever present smiling faces of the Khmer people—regardless of their circumstances.
