Meet your guide and driver at your hotel early in the morning to make the 90-mile (150-km) trip out to Cat Tien National Park. Upon arrival, you will cross over the peaceful Dong Nai river and stop for lunch and some time to stretch your legs.
Fueled up on your Vietnamese lunch, you will tackle a 5-mile (8-km) hike through the dense forest. You’ll pass giant deciduous trees and tropical palms and hear the call of birds and monkeys high up in the foliage. Your guide will be keeping his eye out for pigs, woodpeckers, and civets. You can climb up to an observatory to observe more birds up close.
While it is unlikely you’ll come across the endangered elephants or rhinos, just walking in their territory is a thrill. Take a break after your walk and continuing relaxing on the journey back to the city, which includes a stop for a bite to eat.
There are 30 national parks in Vietnam, but only six are considered unique biosphere reserves recognized by UNESCO. Cat Tien National Park is one of these six. As well as endemic flora and fauna, Cat Tien is home to a small population of Vietnam’s last elephants and rhinos. While many only spend a couple of days in Cat Tien National Park, you’ll be rewarded if you stay longer and make the most of this beautiful natural area.
