Pick up at your hotel, transfer to NamCatTienNational Park. The Park was established in 1998 and is comprised of two separate areas: Nam Cat Tien and Cat Loc. Together they cover around 185,000 acres of evergreen rainforest, which is home to over 600 varieties of plants, 240 types of birds and 50 species of mammals, including the one-horn Java rhinoceros. However don’t expect to see one on this afternoon’s walk through the park. At one time the animal was thought to be extinct due to poachers. In the past poachers could expect a large purse from the sale of rhino horn. Their very existence as a species is still under threat, although it is hoped that an increase in awareness and a sustainable eco-tourism industry can safeguard the animal’s future. Certainly the 60 park wardens take great pride in their “Vietnamese Rhino” and continually patrol the area on the lookout for poachers. After dinner, we board our jeep car to CrocodileLake in the park for wild animals’ night life watching. This evening we staying the tree house situated in the centre of the park
