Full description
After pick-up from your hotel go for a 2-hour car ride to Vam Sat, Can Gio. The UNESCO-designated Can Gio Biosphere Reserve, located south of Ho Chi Minh City, is teeming with wildlife and biodiversity in lush mangrove forests. Make several scenic stops on your way to the reserve. Then move into a landscape of mangroves. Your guide explains the features of Can Gio, one of Vietnam’s most important ecosystems, where more than 52 flora species and 200 fauna species live. Visit traditional fishing hamlets, then cruise the tranquil waters of Giant Bat Lagoon in a rowboat. Your guide leads a short trek through the mangroves to a private riverside location where you have a traditional Vietnamese lunch. After lunch, head to Vam Sat Eco Park. There, you might spot gibbons and monkeys, try crab fishing, and go bird watching for local and migratory bird species. See a crocodile reserve (and feed them via a fishing rod if you wish) to learn about the once-plentiful crocs that were hunted to near extinction. Alternatively, take another mangrove jungle walk with your guide.

    We really enjoyed the trip to the nature reserve. Our very good German speaking guide Vu with two names Max was particularly positive. 2 hours each. For a return trip from Saigon (bus, ferry, speedboat) and approx. 3-4 hours in the nature reserve. 1st station with a long boat through the mangrove forest. 2nd stadium crocodile farm / monkeys, approx. 20 m observation tower with a great view over the mangroves and plenty of lunch. Small tour through the mangrove forest on a stilts path. Very relaxing and lots of animal sounds from the jungle. We could even spot a few large bats.

    Activities really sloppy compared to its price !!! Pick-up at the hotel at 8 a.m. arrived on the island at 10.45 a.m. visit of the bats (barely visible) very short 15 min. Visit the crocodiles 15 min to give them food. We saw only two monkeys in all. Quite generous midday meal and we left the island at 12:20 pm More transport than anything else. Fortunately, the transport is very good massage and heating seats.
