About Cat Tein National Park.

Hi,there !

I am going to travel around central highlight in Vietnum soon and would love to know about Cat Tein National Park.

First of all....How was this NP? Have you seen wild animals? Do you reccomend night safari?How do you consider to enjoy the fullest over there ( ex: stay over night in the NP/ join a tour ..etc) ?

I may go to Cat Tien NP from Boun Ma Thout ..( I know it is not so common going from there...) but will I miss something on the way to get there if I go from Boun Ma Thout because I have heard its very beautiful along R20 going to Cat tien from Dalat ( or HCMC) .So I may change my plan depending on what we can see there.....

Thanks ^^

We saw very little in Cat Tien. Some wild pigs and a civet and a couple of monkeys. Someone who did the night safari saw a porcupine and civet. They also did the crocodile lake walk - no crocodiles. And I can't remember the drive from Dalat to Cat Tien so it definitely wasn't beautiful or memorable. Cat Tien was our only disappointment in Vietnam. Hope this helps.
