The Zoological Park Organization took limits off its six affiliated zoos nationwide Oct. 1, but retained strict sanitary and safety standards for tourists.

The exhibit allows people in service cars to see giraffes, zebras, ostriches, waterbucks, and springboks, all walking free and up close.

Chiang Mai’s zoo took the opportunity to open Wow Africa, which puts people, not the animals, in cages – in the form of a service car – to see giraffes, zebras, ostriches, waterbucks, and springboks, all walking free and up close.




ZPO Director Suriya Saengphong and Zoo Director Wuttichai Muangman said Sept. 30 the Chiang Mai Aquarium also now has fully reopened, showing tourists animals from “the bottom of the sea to the top of the mountain.”

Zoo staff and management celebrate the reopening.
