What You Can Expect

Begin with pickup at your Saigon hotel, then make the trip to Can Gio – Vam Sat in an air-conditioned vehicle, a roughly 1.5-hour drive. Upon arrival in Can Gio, take a rowing trip along an immense river to find a thriving colony of large fruit bats. During the bird breeding season of November through May, you’ll continue on foot into the nearby bird reserve, where you can climb a watchtower to spot thousands of birds. This area is rich in biodiversity, with more than 200 species of animals, and more than 52 species of plant, and your guides keep the focus on the natural world throughout the tour.

Pause for lunch at a nearby restaurant, then take a walk to a crocodile lake: watch for crocodiles in the water, and try to spot the wild monkeys that occasionally appear at the edge of the forest. After visiting the crocodile lake, make the return trip to Saigon/Ho Chi Minh City, where this tour concludes with drop-off at your hotel.

Note: during the non-breeding season of April through October, tours will learn about local salt production rather than visit the bird reserve.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended February 2017

I highly recommend this tour - it and #39;s a perfect getaway from busy Saigon and the guide and #39;s insights were more than interesting.

3 star rating: Worth doing January 2017

This trip is a retreat from the busy city to a quiet un-touristed area of the Mekong. That being said, there is not really that much to see or do although I did see the flying foxes rare bats in the bat preserve. Bird watching in the spring might be interesting but not now December. The trip is worth only about one half the cost.
