Owner description: 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.

Having visited the Park many times from when the first owner had it and it was just a Mud Field , I have seen it just get better and better . All of my Guests have enjoyed themselves riding plus feeding the beautiful Elephants , which are so well cared for . Each Elephant even has a seperate diet and would have died in the wild due to Poachers .The Restaurant serves a variety of food to all tastes and a Canteen gives free meals to your Driver .

We booked tickets for entrance and ride online which all went smoothly. We thought we may want to do the elephant washing so asked when we arrived and we could add it as an extra on arrival. If only one person wants to wash the elephant the other people in the party can watch from a viewing area. Rides were done really well and were about 30 mins which was a decent amount of time. Professional pictures were taken which you can buy for 135,000 and can be 4 small photos, 2 medium or 1 A4 photo - not a bad price we felt. A la carte food in the restaurant was good. We asked our hotel taxi driver to wait for us - glad we did as although there are taxis everywhere in Ubud it seems most people come on organised trips so if you plan to get a taxi there and then get a different one back you may have to wait for one to be called.

This was a fantastic experience, seeing the elephants, touching them, riding them, feeding them FANTASTIC, it was great but the ride went through dull short circuit/grounds - must be extra dull for the elephants. BUT We were collected at 6am and had to go and collect others taking nearly 2 hours to ge there. No water offered in the most uncomfortable van and then a lot of hanging around. Really enjoyed swimming with the elephants but I think I picked a stomach bug up from the water - beware. Showering facilities are limited suggest you take your own soap. Breakfast ok but again had hang around before going onto water rafting. They are over eager to sell you photos and will keep trying to sell them to you. Visit should last in total about 2 hours max.

General admission was all we needed to pay to get a up close and personal experience with the elephants. They have their trainers with them by pools, that give you food to feed them for free. We did not pay all that extra for cleaning them, riding them, or eating lunch there. Riding them actually looked pretty boring and silly - people waited 45 mins early in the morning (it wasn’t even crowded yet) to cue up for a ride. There was also a free show where the elephants did tricks like playing soccer, playing music and doing a painting. We were there for no more than an hour. I wish the elephants had more grassy areas with water to take their breaks on versus the concrete area we saw them chained in. The trainers take their breaks with the elephants - a cool bond to see. There are a lot of signs up noting the reasoning of the “sanctuary” and history too (which we loved reading), it felt more like a park than an animal sanctuary.

Had an unforgettable time here with close up contact with elephants. They are calm and content, scrupulously cared for and happy to interact with people. Very informative museum and stunning art gallery a bonus.
