Overview

Get up close and personal with Bali's largest herd of 31 Sumatran elephants at the island's premiere interactive and intimate elephant experience set among lush botanical gardens and jungle. Our resident giants can be seen immersing themselves in the park lake, in between riding, painting or other activities. Guests can observe, hand feed, touch, and take photos with our elephants, all the while learning more about them along the way.

Be mindful that most of the trip is taken up by transport from your accommodation to Taro - in our case, from Tanjung Benoa, 5 hours was spent in a bus. Lunch was buffet - adequate variety but no drinks included. The actual elephant safari...More

The elephants are beautifull and gentle. The so called sanctuary isn't. Putting an elephant in chains when he/she isn't working is nothing more than enslavement. They let two people sit on the elephants even if they can see the waight is way to much for...More

What a shame it was ridiculously expensive and prohibitive for us. it cost us $85 nz dollar to get in. If you wanted to do anything like ride or bath they simply fleece you. The bathing with elephants where you sit on their head while...More
