Day 1: Ho Chi Minh City – Cat Tien National Park                                          

Cat Tien situated 4-hours drive from Ho Chi Minh City covers an area of 720 km² and protects one of the largest areas of lowland tropical rainforests left in Vietnam.

 

On arrival take a light afternoon trek through the forest to visit the bear rehabilitation centre. This facility has been established by Wildlife at Risk (a local NGO) who takes bears that have been captured for the bile market or pet trade. It is hoped that after a time in the holding enclose that some of the endemic bears can be released back into the forest. In the late afternoon return to the lodge.
