One hundred and fifty kilometers to the northeast of Saigon lies one of Vietnam’s most important and lively national parks, Nam Cat Tien. The 72,000 hectares of dense lowland rainforest and grassland is home to an enormous variety of flora and fauna, and is one of the final remaining refuges for wild native populations of elephant, leopard and reputedly even tiger. For those who wish to have a short adventure excursion from Ho Chi Minh City, Nam Cam Tien is a promising spot where you can trek in the park to hundreds year old trees and witness wildlife even day or night.
This short private adventure is escorted by Vietnam Travel’s experienced tour guide and friendly driver. Contact our Travel Consultants for more information or to customize any itineraries to match your travel interest!

An approximately 3.5-hour drive takes you to a former volcanic crater, known as Lava tubes. Crossing Dong Nai River to enter Nam Cat Tien National Park, you enable to begin your wildlife experience.
Take a light afternoon trek through the forest to the local bear rehabilitation centre. These bears have been rescued from illegal traders, and it is hoped that many of them will be able to return to the wild after some time at the sanctuary.
Tonight you will stay at Forest Floor Lodge, an eco-resort in the middle of the jungle near the Ben Cu River.

Day 2: Discover Nam Cat Tien Park.
Take about 8km drive to the jungle then trek to crocodile lake with plenty of opportunities to see many varieties of bird life and perhaps even the Siamese crocodile. These crocodiles are critically endangered and this is one of the last places in the world where they can be seen in the wild.
In the afternoon, take a boat trip along the Ben Cu River to view wildlife on the riverbank.
After dinner, take a night drive into the park using a spotlight to view nocturnal wildlife.
