Trip Reports

David Richardson, Gig Harbor, Washington - March, 2006


I just completed a marvelous birding adventure in Southern Vietnam, in the Tan Phu Forest and at Cat Tien National Park. My guide was Nguyen Hoai Bao, of Vietnam Wildtour Company. Bao teaches at the Vietnam National University in Ho Chi Minh City, but finds time to guide many people on birding tours of Vietnam. He was an excellent guide and a lot of fun to be with.

"I only had a short time in Vietnam and I asked Bao to organise a two day trip. We visited a forest and a farming area so the variety of birds was much greater than I expected. Bao is a excellent and very Knowledgeable Bird guide. He is enthusiastic and makes the trip full of new experiences. The organisation of the trip was very well planned and as good if not better than other trips I have been on in other parts of the world. I highly recommend taking him on as a guide when you are in Vietnam"

"On a recent trip to Vietnam I employed Bao as a guide to take me to Cat Tien. I highly recommend his services. He is very knowledgeable, an excellent birder, and his communication skills are very good. He was careful in making accommodations, and was unfailingly helpful and generous, with a warm spirit and great fun. I felt that I got to see wonderful birds in a quiet and uncrowned reserve—a rare treat!"
