Itinerary
This is a sample semi-independent itinerary. Travel will be independent with guided tours and activities along the way. Our Destination Specialists will work with you to create an itinerary to meet your preferences.

Day 1Arrive Cat Tien, Vietnam & Dao Tien Monkey Island | Meals: L D

Arrive in Cat Tien, transfer to your lodge and have lunch. In the afternoon, a short boat ride from your jungle lodge brings you to Dao Tien Endangered Primate Rescue Center. The island is dedicated to the rehabilitation of rescued primates and loris from the illegal wildlife trade. Founded by the Endangered Asian Species Trust (EAST) in collaboration with Monkey World in UK and with the support of Cat Tien National Park, the volunteers nurse the rescued animals with the aim of releasing the primates back into the wild when fully recovered. The funding from visitors goes directly into the rescue Center. A visit to Dao Tien will help you understand the plight of endangered primates and the effort of rehabilitate them back into the wild. Upon arrival back at your lodge, enjoy dinner. Overnight at lodge

Day 2Crocodile Lake Trek | Meals: B L D

Bau Sao (Crocodile Lake) in Cat Tien National Park covers a large lagoon system that expands in the rainy season. You reach it by a pick-up truck ride followed by an easy 3-mile hike, a wonderful opportunity to see the amazing flora and fauna of Vietnam’s tropical jungle. As the trail meanders through primary forest you will see giant Tung trees with root systems taller than a person! The tropical forest is also full of colorful birds, lianas, ferns and flowers, and groups of langur monkeys moving from tree to tree. The lake is home to a group of fresh-water Siamese crocodiles, around 200 with new hatchlings. A picnic lunch is followed by an excursion to Cat Tien Bear and Wildlife Rescue Station. The station hosts and protects rescued bears and other endangered animals from the wildlife trade and illegal bear bile factories.
