Cat Tien National Park is an important national park located in the south o Vietnam approximately 150 km north of Ho Chi Minh city . It has an area of about 720 km² and protects one of the largest areas of lowland tropical rain forest left in Vietnam. Cat Tien national park was protected initially in 1978 as two sectors, Nam Cat Tien and Tay Cat Tien. Another sector, Cat Loc, was gazette as a Rhinoceros Reserve in 1992 upon the discovery of a population of the Vietnamese Javan Rhinoceros an occasion that brought the park into the world's eye. The three areas were combined to form one park in 1998.
The park suffered historically during the Vietnam War when it was extensively sprayed with herbicides like the defoliant Agent Orange; however, further damage was done by logging up until the 1980s. To this day these areas have extensive bamboo and grassland cover and trees have not yet grown back.
Day 1- Saigon –Nam Cat Tien (L, D)
7.30am, we leave the busy city of Sai Gon and heading to a mountainous area full of roadside plantations of rubber and green coffee. An approximately 3 and a half hour drive takes us to a former volcanic crater, known as Lava tubes.
Crossing Dong Nai River to enter Nam Cat Tien National Park, we enable to begin our wildlife experience. We have lunch at the park and prepare for a hike into Crocodile Lake. A jeep takes us along a 10km-long concrete road before the 5km trek into the forest begins. The sounds of thousands of insects and long howls of grey monkeys and the startling strange chirps of a forest bird keep us company. A rustic forester outpost is the only facility out on the lake. Accommodation is Spartan, but looking into the red eyes of a crocodile while out on the lake in a small canoe makes the visit well worth it.
Tonight, enjoy a simple dinner made by forest rangers.
Day 2:NamCatTien (B, L, D)
Hike back out from the jungle to the main route where our Jeep picks us up and transfer back to the park Headquarters. Accommodation is arranged in air-conditioned rooms with hot showers in the park center. That afternoon we walk for 2 hours through the jungle to a bird watchtower that gives a great view of the surrounding area. That night, a jeep equipped with a spot light will take you night spotting. Typical wildlife seen at night includes deer, civet, guar, mongoose, macaque, snakes and other small animals.
Accommodation of today is a guesthouse
