Sai Gon - Can Gio Vam Sat Mangrove Forest

A Day Tour


Discover a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve and mangrove forest just 25 miles (40 km.) from Ho Chi Minh City, and spend the day exploring Vietnam’s wildlife and natural beauty.


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 a rest, 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
