Head first to a natural bird reserve to catch rare glimpses of exotic birds nesting and then summon your courage at a crocodile swamp as you listen to fearsome facts about the incredible reptiles. Sneak a peek at a newborn crocodile and hear of complex incubation processes before venturing to a local bat lagoon.

After reveling in the playful antics of the monkeys, glide through the mangrove forest by canoe to the Rung Sac Guerilla Base. Listen to captivating commentary about the Vietnam War guerillas who hid in the forest and hear of how the forest was devastated by a chemical warfare attack in 1998.

Understand what you will really be seeing. I booked this trip expecting an outdoor and wildlife adventure when it's really more about the Viet Nam war history. It is an interesting look at recovery of an area that was hit hard by agent orange but certainly not beautiful. I found the monkeys and military music blaring from loudspeakers very creepy and unsettling. Our guide spoke good English and was very good.

This tour might be on the pricey side but its worth it. Its activity packed and well worth the money you spent on it.
