Tram Chim Sanctuary

A full day excursion out of Chau Doc is the Tram Chim national park and bird sanctuary. Tram Chim national park of 7,588 hectares was created to protect several rare birds, especially the sarus crane/Red-crown crane, a species listed in the IUCN Red List. The Red-crown crane stands over 1.7 metres tall. Over 200 varieties of birds, 25% of all in Viet Nam inhabit this special piece of protected wetlands. December to May is the best period to catch a glimpse of these endangered birds as they migrate to Cambodia during the we season to feed of drier pastures. Do not let this deter you. There are many other birds for dedicated bird watchers and the trip to and from the park from Chau Doc gives a great insight into the almost unspoilt northern side of the Mekong River in Dong Tap province. The best option is to hire a scooter to get there and back in a day trip which will require two river crossings in local ferries. An interesting day out.
