Cat Tien National Park, located 150km to the northeast of Ho Chi Minh City, covered an area of over 700km2 is one of the most outstanding gems of the Central Highlands Vietnam, and also the best in Southern Vietnam, which comprises an amazingly bio-diverse region of lowland tropical rainforest. It was first preserved in 1978 with two zones: Nam Cat Tien and Tay Cat Tien. Another sector - Cat Loc Rhinoceros was added in 1998.
Some of the most popular activities to explore Cat Tien National Park are hiking, mountain biking and bird watching, as the park is home to various impressive animal and bird species. Many of these creatures are listed as rare and endangered in the Red Book of Vietnam, once including the Javan rhinoceros, considered one of the rarest mammals in the world.
You can also take a short trip to Dao Tien Endangered Primate Species Center if you are interested in the protection of the wildlife; or make a visit to the Crocodile Swamp, about 15-minute drive from the park and a three-hour round trip trekking to the swamp to see the crocodile and other exciting wildlife.
The ideal time of the year to visit Cat Tien National Park is in the dry season from December to May, when the weather is favorable for trekking. Avoid getting around in the rainy season as you might be stuck with occasional flooding.
