A Night Out at Chiang Mai Zoo

A Night Out
at Chiang Mai Zoo

A variety of wildlife can now be admired during our nocturnal tour through Chiang Mai’s night
safari. Considered to be the largest in the world, this family-focused tour does not
only bring you up and close with these animals but also properly educates.

WHY THIS TOUR?

Sprawling over 300 acres of natural land that surrounds the Doi Suthep – Doi Pui National Park, the Chiang Mai Day and Night Safari is one of the latest additions of local and regional collaborative efforts to showcase the variety of wildlife in this part of the world.

The initial set-up of this huge part – twice the size of its sister in Singapore and considered in size as the largest night zoo in the world – was for entertainment purposes, yet the park also has integrated a large part of education and research in its daily operations. The park has been constructed in various zones, each representing a part of the world and/or related to the type of animal(s).

TRAIL ITINERARY

A Night Out at Chiang Mai Zoo

18:00 - 21:00

The night safari is one that has put this Chiang Mai institute on the map. Together with an English speaking guide, you drive from your downtown Chiang Mai hotel in western direction towards the main entrance of the national park. Located approximately 10 kilometres outside the city centre, the Chiang Mai Night Safari lies within a convenient distance from any downtown hotel in Chiang Mai. Upon arrival, guests will immediately get to witness the space and freedom these animals have. A dedicated tram ride, with set departures for English, will guide the customers around two major zones – the Predator Prowl and the Savanna Safari, each with its characteristics.

You will be able to get up and close with various animals as the tram drives slowly around these trails, showing how some of these nocturnal animals live during the night. The final part of the tram ride – the Predator Prowl Zone – will include more animals that are your typical hunters, such as wolfs, bears, jackals and hyenas. The park has taken measures that customers are safe at all times. During the whole tour, the guide on the tram will explain what goes on behind the scenes of the zoo, where local leading experts conduct research and preservation strategies in growing the animal population most susceptible from seeing eradication.

After this ride, you disembark back at the main entrance and your driver will bring you back to your hotel at around 9pm.
