The Jungle Boss. A true man of the community and conservation. A true Boss of the Jungle. Dzung, AKA Jungle Boss, started his company with 2 goals in mind, saving the jungle, and helping his community.
Dzung was introduced to an NGO in Phong Nha – Ke Bang National Park whose goal was to protect and conserve plants and wildlife of the area. In 2008 Dzung moved to Phong Nha to work with them. As the Field Assistant Manager, he saw to it that logging stopped, animal traps were confiscated and that poaching was pushed out of the area. Through his efforts the NGO built a rehabilitation center known as the Rescue Station, which operates to this day.
In 2015, the Jungle Boss Homestay was born. Starting with just 4 employees, a small homestay and the Abandoned Valley Trek, Boss grew the company substantially. Now, through Jungle Boss Trekking Tours and the Jungle Boss Homestay he successfully provides 100+ sustainable jobs for the local community, and pays ~20% of gross income into the National Park. Boss is a firm believer in the future of Phong Nha, and hopes that together with the help of travelers, the local community and the Jungle Boss family, conservation standards can be set not only for Vietnam, but for Southeast Asia.
