The idea that started the Jungle Lodge journey began with Gary Leong – one of its founding members, who continues to be a regular visitor of Cat Tien National Park. Since 1996, whenever he was free from corporate business work or travel, Gary would spend time bird watching, pathfinding, mountain biking or simply camping out with the forest rangers in the Park.
Realizing that the world’s natural sites & ecosystems are being devastated by overpopulation, greed or the lack of understanding in nature preservation, Gary set his mission to be an instrument to foster better appreciation & preservation of our natural world.
When we know more about mother nature, the less we will be fearful of her, and the deeper we will come to appreciate her beauty & wonders. Only when one becomes more connected with nature, we would then be drawn to her and hopefully, this will motivate people to help preserve & protect our natural world & its inhabitants.
The above ideas will be hard to achieve without the involvement of our second founding member – Duong Thi Ngoc Phuong. “Chi Phuong” as she is popularly known, is the task master cum trouble shooter without whom, our Jungle Lodge would have faced difficulties in getting started. Chi Phuong’s initial reservation to participate in a project next to a major jungle of Vietnam began to evolve after her many visits to the Park. Her awareness of the Park’s natural beauty & the clean countryside living became a convincing reason to be more engaged with the project.
When you visit us, try catching Gary or Chi Phuong or our enthusiastic team of like-minded managers for a friendly chat. We not only see being part of the Jungle Lodge as an opportunity to be close to a beautiful Park, we also expound the values that Jungle Lodge is to deliver to our guests & customers. And that is to be “Your Window Into Nature”.
