Vietnam Hill Tribe Trek & Bear Sanctuary Visit




In 2018 we are asking our supporters to take on the challenge of a lifetime for Animals Asia!

Trek through the breath-taking hills of Northern Vietnam and immerse you self in the authentic culture of the ethnic hill tribes as you pass through on your way to the Animals Asia Bear Rescue centre in Tam Dao National Park.

You will spend 5 days trekking through villages and jungle with overnight stays in homesteads of the hill tribes where you can sample traditional Vietnamese cuisine with breakfast, lunch and dinner all included. You will then get the chance to spend 2 days at our bear sanctuary in Tam Dao National Park and get to see our rescued bears living their life with the grass under their paws including all the new arrivals from the latest #9lives rescue. Here at the sanctuary you will get the chance to witness first hand the bears racing out to forage for their fresh fruits and vegetables and enjoying all their enrichment throughout the day. You will have the opportunity to get involved in some behavioural observations of the bears, an important part of all the bears rehabilitation.


24th October - 3rd November 2018


Initial registration costs £345 then we ask you to raise a minimum of £2990 or there is the option to self-fund this trip yourself.

If you are keen to take on this challenge of a lifetime follow this link to download the registration form: 


We have registered our event on Virgin Money Giving which means that you can link your own personal fundraising page to the event and we can see a collective team effort.

All you need to do is go to: http://uk.virginmoneygiving.com/giving/ find Animals Asia and click 'events'. It will lead you through setting up your own page.

You will get a page link and you can send to all of your friends, family and work colleagues by email and they can use it to make a donation online.  This is often much simpler than having to run around with a sponsorship form and collect in all the money after the event and saves Animals Asia a vast amount in administration time.  Virgin Money Giving collect the donations and pay them directly into our bank account.   They also claim the Gift Aid for us.
