Welcome to Yok Don National Park
Unfortunately, deforestation and poaching are ongoing issues, meaning that the 46 mammal species here, including wild elephants, leopards and rare red wolves, hide deep in the jungle and are virtually never encountered by visitors. More common wildlife includes muntjac deer, monkeys and snakes. Numerous bird species live in the park, including storks and two types of hornbills.
Four minority villages lie within the park, predominantly M’nong but also with Ede and Lao people. Three villages are accessible (one by boat from the park office) while the fourth is out of bounds. To explore Yok Don, it's best to engage a guide at the park office.
