Wildlife in Laos

The wildlife in Laos can be hard to spot; it’s all about being in the right place at the right time. With a keen pair of eyes and a great pair of binoculars you might spot some of the animals native to Laos. Of course, you’ve got a good chance of seeing the odd monkey at one of Laos’ many temples.

Search for the Irrawaddy dolphin

Just off Don Khone Island in Si Phan Don the highly endangered Irrawaddy dolphin has been spotted. Why not try your luck and take a boat trip in search of this incredible animal during your stay amongst the four thousand islands of the Mekong River.

Trek through Luang Namtha National Park

While trekking through the wild undergrowth of Luang Namtha National Park you might spot a few of the local inhabitants. Monkeys have been reported in this area, so if you walk quietly and luck is on your side, you may hear or even see them swinging amongst the branches overhead.
