Are you ready for three days of adventure through the Cat Tien National Park? Visit a bear rehabilitation center built by a local charity, hike to Crocodile lake, and take a boat ride along the river. During a night hike, you’ll have the opportunity to discover the nocturnal wildlife. At the end of the trip, visit Dao Tien Endangered Primate Species Center, where you will meet endangered monkeys, gibbons, and langurs. And to round off this amazing experience, you will stay at Forest Floor Lodge, the perfect accommodation for adventure in the middle of the jungle!

After breakfast, your guide will pick you up in Saigon and take you to Cat Tien National Park. The national park covers an area of 720 sqm and is home to one of the largest remaining tropical lowland rainforests in Vietnam.

When you arrive in the afternoon, you will already embark on an easy hike through the surrounding forest to the bear rehabilitation center. The local charity called Wildlife at Risk runs the project. They care for bears released from captivity and protect them from illegal pet trade. Lovingly cared for, the bears get the help they need before released back into their natural environment.

Afterward, you will return to the lodge.

Early in the morning, you will embark on your next adventure to Crocodile Lake. Observe different species of birds and meet the endangered Siamese crocodiles along the way. Cat Tien National Park is one of the last areas in the world where this critically endangered crocodile lives in the wild. So keep your eyes peeled for this unique observation!

In the afternoon, you will take a boat trip on the Ben Cu River. As the beautiful scenes float by, notice the native animals lurking on the banks.

Another night hike awaits you! Can you hear the tropical surroundings slowly coming to life? The guide will hand out small lamps before you search for the nocturnal forest dwellers.
