Night Safari Trip in Cat Tien National Park

What to do in Nam Cat Tien

A night adventure tour to discover the animal nightlife at Nam Cat Tien 

Your safari adventure begins at 8 p.m. after you’ve hired a jeep and a local tour guide to explore the forest. The car speeds through the bamboo forests and grasslands until you reach an area where animals often go to seek food.

The driver stops the car and turns off the lights. The tour guide on the hood switches on a flashlight, creating streaks of light that scan the area before discovering some carefree deer grazing.

The deer lift their heads and see tourists via their red and wild eyes in the dark. The truck penetrates deep into the forest, and passengers may see a black wild boar, muntjac, porcupine, or pangolin searching for food.

These animals quickly hide in the deep forest if they encounter humans, so it’s best to be still and quiet if possible. On the road to the jungle, you have to be careful with unexpected long branches of trees that can hit your face.

The branches of trees along the two sides of the road are home to many varieties of birds. Even when the light shines on them, they stand quietly, making it an ideal spot for photographers to take some snapshots. When the flashlights and the flashes from cameras turn on, thousands of termite species try to attack the tourists.

The dry season from December to May is the most favorable time to participate in nocturnal animal-watching activities at Cat Tien National Park. During this time, the weather is dry with little rain, making it very convenient for tourists to travel. On the contrary, if tourists come here from June to November, they must check the weather forecast before going to avoid storms.
