The Best Time To Visit The Chiang Mai Night Safari Park. 

Visitors planning a trip to the Chiang Mai Night Safari Park must be sure to set their schedule to a time that suits them. The English language tram leaves after 19:45 so visitors that do not understand Thai must be sure to set their schedule to this period. It is equally important to note that the different animal zones have different opening times. African Savanna and Predator Prowl are evening zones and are open from 18:00 to 23:00, while the day zone which features the Jaguar Trail is open from 11:00 to 23:00. It is also advised to leave for the park after sunset as this is the period the animals become most active. The laser light show also has two rounds; the first one is at 20:00 and the second at 21:00.

In a bid to allow visitors access to the wide range of activities offered at Chiang Mai Night Safari Park, there are three types of ticketing services available. The first type allows a single entry access to the Jaguar trail and the Laser Light Show. Type 2 allows a single entry access to the Jaguar Trail, Laser Light show and two Tram Rides to the Savanna Safari and Predator Prowl. Finally, the third type is the type 3 ticketing that grants single Entry access to the Jaguar Trail, Laser Light Show, and two Day-time Tram Rides to Savanna Safari and Predator Prowl, and two Nighttime Tram Rides to Savanna Safari and Predator Prowl.
