This Birding Tour is designed by WANEE VIETNAM for you who have 1 week in Vietnam but would like to have the best birding time with more than 60% target birds of Vietnam. Let’s see where the birding spot is.

Cat Tien National Park and Dalat are the best birding sites in Vietnam, located in the South Annam part, Cat Tien is 150 km far from Saigon and Dalat is 150 km far from Cat Tien. It is very convenient to travel from Saigon.

Cat Tien National Park which recorded 320 bird species is one of the best birding sites in Vietnam and also the most accessible site in Vietnam for Orange-necked Partridge (Indochinese endemic) leaving in the thick bamboo forest. Home for many birder’s most wanted birds such as Siamese Fireback, Germain’s Peacock Pheasant, Green Peafowl, Blue-rumped, and Bar-billed Pitta…

Dalat is an EBA that has a natural evergreen forest and coniferous forest that is home to six endemic bird species and also supports several subspecies.

Dalat is a unique terminus of a South-East Asian montane leapfrog area. In addition to the pronounced element of avian endemism found on the Dalat Plateau, Dalat multiple widespread montane SouthEast Asian birds that share their closest vocal or plumage similarities not with adjacent populations in central Vietnam and Laos, but with distant populations, often in Peninsular Malaysia, that are separated by a string of dissimilar populations in between.

This evolutionary and biogeographic mode of distribution, in which two similar terminal populations are separated by dissimilar intervening populations, is known as a ‘leapfrog pattern, and has been well-characterised inlinear mountain ranges such as the Andes of South America. In Asian birds, leapfrog patterns have been found in archipelagic situations such as eastern Indonesia.
