Can Gio, an UNESCO recognized Biosphere Reserve contains a high degree of biodiversity, with more than 200 species of fauna and 150 species of flora. The Can Gio UNESCO biosphere reserve is dominated by mangrove trees, including both salt water and brackish water species and is often regarded as the “green lungs” of the Ho Chi Minh City.
Leave bustling Saigon behind, we head out to the Can Gio Mangrove Forest, a low, palm-fringed island sitting at the mouth of the Saigon River, is notable for its extensive mangrove forest.
Exploring the lush jungle surroundings of this UNESCO Biosphere Reserve. Step deeper into the forest, climb the 26-meter-height Tam Bong tower to observe the vast array of wildlife residing in the park. See the flying fox bat (Scotophilus heathii) as well as many bird species such as storks, kingfishers, and even the endangered Sarus Crane during the nesting season (April – October) where a watchtower will allow you to observe a thousand birds flying around. Feed saltwater crocodiles, while out of the lake, occasionally, you may see wild monkeys jumping out from the forest.
Lunch is served at a local restaurant before transferring back to Saigon.
