Chiang Mai Night Safari
A spectacular sight to enjoy for people of all ages is a trip to the Chiang Mai Night Safari. It is considered by many to be the most beautiful Night Safari in the world. Twice the size of the Singapore Night Safari it stands on over 300 acres, just 10km from the centre of Chiang Mai. You can arrange you own transport to get to the Chiang Mai Night Safari or there is a free return mini bus that runs every evening from outside the Tourist Police office in the middle of the Night Bazaar.
The Night Safari is essentially a zoo set out like a theme park. For animal viewing it is separated into three main areas.
There is a day time area called the Jaguar Trail Zone and consists of a 1.2km walking trail around a lovely lake. There are over 400 animals to see here including White Tigers, Jaguars, Leopards, Tapirs, Monkeys, Camels, miniature Horses, Cranes and they even have wallabies and koalas. The walking trail is open from 11am till 10pm daily and costs 100THB adults and 50THB for children. If the walk is too long for some they have Segways for hire (2pm to 10pm).
The night time area is split into two zones, the Savanna Safari Zone and the Predator Prowl Zone. These sections are open from 6pm till midnight daily. Visitors travel through the different zones in the Night Safari in an open sided tram. The tram ride is around 5km and takes about 1hr to get around it all. Trams run from 7pm till 10.30pm, with a tram every 15mins. Cost for the night time area is 800 THB adults and 400 THB children which includes tram rides and other entertainment.
