Just three hours from Ho Chi Minh City, on the road to the former Colonial hill station of Dalat; Cat Tien National Park (or Nam Cat Tien) is ideally located for travellers wishing to escape city life for a day or two.
One of the most important Nature Reserves in Vietnam, Cat Tien is home to many of the country’s endangered species of wildlife as well as a wealth of flora and fauna. Amongst the species that live in the 70,000-hectare park are the Asian elephants, yellow cheeked gibbons and sun bears. During any visit you can also visit the park’s Endangered Primate Centre, where you’ll be able to see two of the rarest species in the world – the Delacour and Cat Ba langurs.
Whilst in Cat Tien you will be accompanied by one of the Park Rangers. All are highly trained and experienced, making the perfect guide for even the most advanced twitcher and nature enthusiast. Your programme can be tailored to suit your individual preferences, however typically you will spend two days combining hiking, spotting wildlife, including the wealth of birdlife, and experiencing night safari’s.
As a base, we recommend Forest Floor Lodge – a converted ranger station providing comfortable accommodation in either luxury tents or traditional Vietnamese houses. There is an onsite restaurant with open air terrace, providing nature-viewing opportunities whilst you enjoy breakfast.
