Overview
Mekong Delta’s Can Gio Biosphere Reserve, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, is a haven for wildlife, but difficult to access independently from Ho Chi Minh. This small-group tour whisks you there by speedboat to explore its wildlife-rich mangroves and lagoons. Ride a rowboat, follow trails, and see monkeys, birds, crocodiles, and gibbons in one smooth, guided excursion. A light breakfast, lunch, and hotel transfers are included in this day out.
Highlights
  • Visit the Mekong Can Gio Biosphere Reserve by speedboat from Ho Chi Minh
  • Scenic return deluxe speedboat ride to avoid transport hassles
  • See monkeys, birds, and crocs; ride a rowboat, walk jungle trails, and more
  • Limit of 14 for small-group touring, with two meals and transfers included
What to Expect
Depart your Ho Chi Minh hotel and enjoy a deluxe speedboat ride along the Mekong Delta’s forest-framed tributaries to Can Gio. Aim to bring binoculars with you. As you cruise, savor onboard refreshments, stop to visit Can Giuoc market, and gaze at the passing rice fields, fruit orchards, and mangroves. On arrival, delve into the reserve to discover and learn about its ecosystem and animal, bird, and plant life. Delve into rustic fishing hamlets, ride a rowboat across the Giant Bat Lagoon, and—after a short hike—enjoy a riverside lunch of classic Vietnamese cuisine. Then, head for the salt-marsh forest reserve of Vam Sat Park. Here, watch for monkeys and birds, go crab fishing, and visit a crocodile reserve—perhaps feeding them using fishing rods—or opt for a guided mangrove walk. After your return boat trip to Ho Chi Minh, your tour ends at your hotel.

What a great trip, so interesting. The explanations about the stilt houses, river boats was really interesting. The mangrove boat tour was so tranquil, seeing the monkeys, feeding the crocs wet all great. Then lunch absolutely fabulous meal, chicken, fish, prawns, rice, salad.

Right at the beginning it was clear: Only two participants would take the tour, because several other guests did not show up. I felt sorry for the tour operator, but for the other guest and me it was a stroke of luck. We had the boat for ourselves and were constantly supplied

A well-informed trip, guided excellently by Hang. The walk and rowing through the mangroves on Can Gio was peaceful and enjoyable, the visit to the market good, home-cooked lunch was plentiful but the crocodile feeding rather tacky.
