Night Safari to begin afternoon tour
Veerapol Boonchuduang, leader of the animal welfare and management
division of the Chiang Mai Night Safari, along with other staff took a test
run of carriages for a new afternoon exhibit at the venue.
Boonchuduang, head of the animal welfare and management division feeds the
animals from the carriage at the Night Safari.
The Night Safari hopes to focus more on nature conservation and education
about wildlife for its visitors and believes that the afternoon tour, which
takes place at feeding time, will further that aim. The Savanna Safari zone,
Predator Prowl is one of the areas of interest for the afternoon tour as
Veerapol feels more young people will be able to visit the safari in the
afternoon hours. The afternoon tour is expected to begin running shortly, in
time for the tourist high season.
