From Ho Chi Minh City

1. There are a couple of reliable & very comfortable inter provincial buses (see buses of Thanh Buoi & Phuong Trang info below) that depart hourly/daily from Ho Chi Minh to Da Lat via National Highway 20 (Quoc Lo 20). Travelling by these buses, you can ask to be dropped off at ‘Ben Xe Buyt Phuong Lam at km142’ (ie: Phuong Lam Bus Station at km142). Just opposite of the Phuong Lam bus station is a big signboard designating Café Mai Phuong, @3982, Ap Phu Lam 1, Xa Phu Son, Huyen Tan Phu, Dong Nai. Telephone no: 01224068919 (Ms Tung) as our designated pick-up & drop-off point into Cat Tien Jungle Lodge & Farm Stay or into Cat Tien National Park itself.

From Café Mai Phuong, we have our preferred Xe Om (motorcycle taxi) shuttle services to cover the 16km ride into Nam Cat Tien. The ride cost around vnd110,000/person payable at Café Mai Phuong itself or at Jungle Lodge / Farm Stay. If you prefer to be picked up by car or minivan (ie: group travel or if it’s raining), you can prearrange for this service by calling us at +84 (0)61 3664888. Cost for a car & minivan pick up services is around vnd380,000 & vnd500,000 and can sit 4 to 8 persons respectively.

2. Alternative solution for option [1] is go to Mien Dong Bus Station (ben xe Mien Dong) and buy a bus ticket at ticket counter No:5 (it cost around VND85,000/person). The bus company Xe Kim Hoang or Xe Be will take you directly to Nam Cat Tien Village & passes the front gates of Jungle Lodge & Farm Stay itself. These small local buses are however a little slower (about 4½ hours due to many pick ups & drop offs along the way) & are less comfortable than the buses outlined in [1]. They however could offer a ‘unique’ experience of a local transport encounter. As a cautionary note, we do receive some feedback from travellers that they had experienced the buses can sometimes be driven rather aggressively/recklessly along the journey.
