Your accommodation is a River-View Tent with a balcony overlooking the Ben Cu Rapids, these deluxe tents are constructed on elevated wooden platforms and reached via a network of walkways, or traditional rural Vietnamese bungalow nestled in amongst the trees with a private veranda looking out in to the jungle.

A boat trip along the Dong Nai River to view the wildlife along the riverbank and trek through grassland areas to search for Peafowl, Jungle Fowl and birds that prefer a more open habitat.

In the afternoon before we head back for Saigon we tour the land bordering the Park which is now rich farming land growing a variety of crops, fruits like mango, bananas, jackfruit, star fruit and spices such as pepper. The farms are small family run business providing very modest income to the farmers.
