Safari Time Vietnam

March 5, 2015 by Khiri Travel | Filed Under: , , ,

Vietnam covers a vast distance from north to south where a variety of mammals, birds and reptiles inhabit protected natural environments. Located close to Ho Chi Minh City, Cat Tien National Park, one of the largest and most important national parks, protects the largest remaining area of lowland tropical rainforest in Vietnam and has received international attention from WWF and as a UNESCO world biosphere reserve.

Excursions to this park are organized where it’s possible to spend two days exploring the tropical rainforest and even participate in a night safari. Night safaris are a really a fantastic way to witness the park’s nocturnal animals such as Sambar deer, civets, and with a little luck, porcupines and wild pigs. Accompanied by one of the park’s experts, your travelers will trek into the rainforest to explore for nocturnal activity. With finely tuned senses, night safari visitors can stay very silent and attentive to even the most delicate sounds.things to do at Vietnam - Cat tien national park

Nearby to Cat Tien National Park is a primate rescue center for species such as gibbons, langurs and pygmy slow loris. These endangered animals are native to the surrounding area but have been found injured, abandoned or rescued as victims of the illegal wildlife trade. The rescue center’s goal is to rehabilitate and release these wild animals back into the rainforest.

Another “do not miss” at the Cat Tien is Crocodile Lake. Home to one hundred crocodiles, visitors must master the art of staying calm and quiet to watch these fierce predators relaxing on the bank of the lake. Also an endangered species in Vietnam, Cat Tien National Park is one of the few places where visitors are able to observe these wild animals in their natural environment.
