Important Information For Da Nang Wildlife Walking Tour
1Wear walking shoes – expected distance 3 – 5 kilometres
2 Bring sunglasses, sun cream, and a sun hat on sunny days. Binoculars would be useful.
3 Don’t wear perfume, fragrant personal care products or other unnatural scents.
4 Wear muted, natural-coloured clothing to help you blend in with the environment.
5 Dress in clothing that is quiet when you move.
6 For better vision, shade your eyes with a cap or visor.
7 If you glimpse an animal, freeze. Staying absolutely motionless is the same technique many animals use to keep from being detected.
8If an animal you are watching sees you but doesn’t flee, avert your eyes. ‘Staring’ is a threatening gesture to most wildlife, so glance out of the corners of your eyes.
9 Remember to respect the environment during your wildlife watching adventures: step lightly and try to leave rocks, logs, flowers, nests, etc, as you found them.
10Always practise responsible and safe viewing. Don’t pursue wildlife. Keep the environment clean.
11 Departure time and schedule may change due to season and weather. We do not operate this tour in stormy weather.
