Why this Bird Photography Tour

Cat Tien and Dalat are two of the most celebrated birding sites in Vietnam, and for good reason. These locations cover more than 50% of the target species for those visiting Vietnam for the first time.

Cat Tien National Park: Nestled in the South Annam region, Cat Tien is a mere 150 km from Saigon. It boasts one of Vietnam’s most pristine lowland forest bird populations. Here, you can spot three captivating species of Pitta: Bar-bellied, Blue-rumped, and Blue-winged Pitta (raining season), making it a paradise for avid photographers.

Dalat: Located 150 km from Cat Tien, Dalat is known for its EBAs (Endemic Bird Areas) characterized by natural evergreen and coniferous forests. These forests are home to six endemic bird species and several unique subspecies, offering a diverse range of photographic opportunities.
