Chiang Mai Night Safari - Review

This attraction is open during the day but the real action happens at night during the Predator Prowl and 'Savannah Safari', when an open-sided tram transports visitors through the parkland. The night safari differs from the Chiang Mai Zoo in that some animals like wildebeests, giraffes, white rhinoceroses and zebras are allowed to roam and often come right up to the bus. In the 'Predator Prowl' section, the tigers, lions, Asiatic black bears and crocodiles are kept at a safe distance by deep trenches.

During the day you can visit the Jaguar Trail encircling Swan Lake, a 1.2km walk where over 50 species (ranging from rabbits to cranes) are generally not in cages, except of course the trail's namesake animal.

Chiang Mai Night Safari, Chiang Mai Reviews

  • Our kids truly enjoyed seeing so many animals up close although we felt like we were in a scene from Jurassic park and something could go wrong at any moment, we adults enjoyed ourselves too. Beautiful & engaging dance + animal shows plus a play area that our 7 & 3 year old enjoyed. It was a fun 1/2 day outing. The down side is that the food wasn't that good in the giraffe restaurant.

  • Place is a must go if you ever visit Chiang mai. The shows are really entertaining and the best part is you get to see some of the animals really up close. That's what makes it magical. It's not tiring as well even after the whole trip as most of it was sitting on a tram or watching the performances of the tiger or lions and even dance performance that starts at 7pm.

  • Absolutely amazing experience getting to see a wide variety of animals including lions, tigers, giraffe and zebra. There are shows that educate on the animals at the park - just demonstrations rather than making them do any skills etc. You can ride on the tram with the giraffe and zebra and deer roaming free and they come right up to the tram for you to touch them! I would definitely recommend.

  • A very unique and good experience at this night safari. I'd say its nice than their zoo. It's not tiring as well as there are lots of shows to watch and to see the animals there's 2 tram rides for different section. Didnt see a need to bring strollers for kids as well.

  • This place doesn’t even deserve one star! After asking the staff to give an evidently distressed elephant food and drink, we were told the elephant ‘will drink when it’s time to’ (this being many hours later). Following this, we were totally mocked and laughed at by the staff for even asking. The animals are kept in an astoundingly small confinement, my friends and I were left genuinely upset having seen the poor conditions these animals were and are being kept. Many showed signs of distress throughout the tour. This experience really opened my eyes to how totally and utterly inhumane this supposedly ‘amazing experience’ really is.
