Vietnam Wildlife Expedition

Our Vietnam Wildlife Expedition is all about giving you a thorough insight into the wildlife waiting for you to discover in some of Vietnam’s most interesting wildlife areas. From Crocodile Lake in the Nam Cat Tien national park to the Van Long Nature reserve near Ninh Binh, and finishing off in the incredible Cat Ba National Park on Cat Ba Island.

On this expedition you will get the opportunity to see all types of different and varied sightings, such as deer, wild pigs, snakes, porcupines, gaur (rare) and weasels. Not only this, you will hopefully trek down some Delacour’s langurs (Voọc in Vietnamese), which is a highlight on any expedition to the Cat Ba National Park.
