Spread over an area of 12 hectares, the sanctuary has over 10,000 square metres of seminatural outdoor enclosure space designed to stimulate the bears’ natural behaviour. As the team in Vietnam regularly receives cubs confiscated from wildlife traders or poachers, we have also constructed a 280-sq-m cub house with a 900-sq-m outdoor area split into seven enclosures. Furnished with cub-sized wooden sleeping platforms, the cub dens house young bears until they are mature enough to be integrated with the adults.

Animals Asia’s Vietnam Bear Rescue Centre is not open to the public. However, to accommodate the many requests for visits, we arrange Open Day guided tours each month. Tours are conducted in English or English/Vietnamese, depending on the make-up of the group.
The tours are limited to two groups of maximum 20 people per day, starting at 9.30am and 3.00pm.
The Vietnam Bear Rescue Centre is about a two-hour drive from Hanoi and visitors will need to arrange their own transport. Once your booking is confirmed we will send you a map with directions and address of the rescue centre. The tour lasts about 1-1.5 hours.

  1. Interesting! I would love to visit this place with my friends or my niece and nephew someday. How much does it cost, or is it free tour? Can children under 5 visit it?

    Happy New Year! Wish you a year ahead with lots of health and happiness 🙂

  2. Hi thanks, happy new year too. Not sure if the tour is free or if they ask for a small donation. It’s such a great animal conservation project, one of the very best in South East Asia. I think you can get any info you need by calling the Hanoi office. If you do visit I wish you a fantastic day out.


  3. Hi Jess, thanks for visiting my blog. I am glad to know that you seem to be very interested in the bear rescue centre. I am working here so would love to have you visit our bears some day 🙂 FyI, it is totally free of charge. You can also contact me if you want to arrange to visit as I am in charge of visitors
