Explore the lowland forests and ecologically rich swamps of Cat Tien National Park on this 2 day adventure with a guided trek. Look for a diverse array of wildlife, stay overnight in a rustic bungalow, and get the chance to catch up-close looks at toothy crocodiles during your private excursion.
After getting picked up from your Ho Chi Minh City hotel, cruise toward the rugged landscapes and dense forests of Cat Tien National Park. See rubber trees full of drippy white latex, check out a coffee plantation, and see rocky landscapes of a dormant volcanic crater. Reach the park after crossing the waters of the Dong Nai River and fuel up with a tasty lunch of Vietnamese specialties to prepare you for a 3-hour trek.
Spend the afternoon winding along shady trails as you listen to your guide point out native species of plants. Watch the colorful feathers of exotic birds as they dart between the trees, and keep your eyes peeled for the park's vast array of mammals including Asian elephants and sun bears. Return to your bungalow after your trek and listen to the sounds of nocturnal animals as they fill the night with their chattering calls.
Wake up to the sounds of song birds, grab breakfast, and hop in a rugged off-road vehicle for the quick ride to the day's trail, leading to the aptly named Crocodile Lake. When you arrive, hop aboard a spacious boat and keep your camera ready for the chance to photograph freshwater crocodiles, wild lotus, and dozens of species of birds. Afterward, make your way back to the lodge for lunch before making your final return to Ho Chi Minh City.
