Program

Day 1: Hanoi to Cuc Phuong National Park

After an early breakfast, you will depart for Cuc Phuong National Park. Your drive will take you past a mosaic of rice paddies, rural hamlets, limestone cliffs, and green mountains. Located south of Hanoi, the forested limestone slopes of Cuc Phuong protect an impressive variety of animals and plants. It is home to some spectacular primates including gibbons, macaques, and rare and endemic Delacour’s leaf monkey. The park is also home to some fantastic birds including red-collared woodpeckers, limestone wren-babblers, fork-tailed sunbirds, and many others. During April and May, just before the onset of the rains, the park is filled with literally millions of butterflies. You will arrive at Cuc Phuong in the early afternoon and will visit the Cuc Phuong National Park’s turtle conservation center.

This sanctuary was established to protect and breed many species of Asian turtles and tortoises. All of which are endangered from over-harvest for the food markets of China and Taiwan. In the late afternoon, you will have your first chance to look for wildlife along the park’s main road before you settle into the rustic, but comfortable, accommodations at the Cuc Phuong Guesthouse. You will have dinner and overnight at the Cuc Phuong Guesthouse.

Day 2: Cuc Phuong National Park

Dedicated in 1962, Cuc Phuong was Vietnam’s first national park and is one of the few remaining areas of lowland and limestone forest left in the north. You will have two full days to explore the forests and trails within the park’s karst ecosystem. You will begin each day at dawn when animal activity is at its peak, take a break during the heat of the day and continue exploring in the late afternoon and early evening. You will also take a few night game drives in hopes of glimpsing some of the nocturnal mammals that inhabit the park. Mammals are difficult to see in the park, but birds are common and you should observe some reptiles as well. You will have your meals and overnight at the Cuc Phuong Guesthouses.

Day 3: Cuc Phuong National Park - Xuan Thuy National Park

This morning, you will visit the Endangered Primate Rescue Center located near park headquarters. The center is home to around 14 species of primates, mostly gibbons and langurs that have been rescued from the illegal wildlife trade. The center not only rescues the animals but also breeding them for eventual reintroduction back into the wild. Vietnam is home to a fantastic array of primates most of which are endemic or near-endemic. They are almost all endangered as well so the center is doing really important conservation and education work. Your visit will also likely be your only chance to see some of these animals. The exception to this may be the rare Delacour’s langur which is endemic to the region in and around Cuc Phuong.

Then, you will leave Cuc Phuong National park to Xuan Thuy National Park, the first Ramsar site in Vietnam, with three-hour driving through the heart of the Red River Delta. Have a short meeting and discussion with the ranger about the bird species and its habitation. Dinner and overnight at the Xuan Thuy National Park's guesthouse.

Day 4: Xuan Thuy National Park

A full day of bird watching started with a boat trip around the wetland area, including Lu and Vanh Islets and through a mangrove forest. This area is the seagate of the Red River, the second biggest one in Vietnam, originated from China mainland which makes the fertile Red River Delta. If you come here in the wintertime, you could have very potential chances to see special species of birds of East Asia-Australia flyway such as black-faced spoonbill, spoon-billed sandpiper, spotted greenshank, Saunders's gull, Asian dowitcher, etc. Packed lunch served during the trip. Dinner and overnight at the Xuan Thuy National Park's guesthouse.

Day 5: Xuan Thuy National Park - Hanoi

As one full day would possibly not satisfy the bird watchers, you’ll continue a morning trip today around Ngan area to watch the rests of hundreds of bird species you may have never seen. Lunch at the park headquarters, take a break before returning to Hanoi late afternoon. End of services at your accommodation in Hanoi.
