Elephant Safari Park and Bali Safari & Marine Park

In the north of Ubud, visitors to Bali can touch, feed, and ride one of the world’s most gentle giants – elephants. Not all zoos and animal parks are operated properly. You must do your research to ensure the practices are legal and actually care for the animals.

In Bali, your best two choices are the Elephant Safari Park and the Bali Safari & Marine Park. In the former, it is a complete elephant experience; and in the latter, you have a full variety of animals. If you have time, both are highly recommended.

Elephant Safari Park

The Elephant Safari Park opened in 2000 and it is the only dedicated elephant rescue park in Bali. Elephants roam the gardens day and night comfortably and happily. This is a popular destination for tourists and even celebrities seeking an elephant sanctuary where the animals are properly treated and cared. You can even stay overnight in the lodges overlooking the park.

To book a tour, you can ask your hotel concierge for assistance or book directly with Bali Adventure Tours who manages the park’s activities.

After touring the memorabilia and museum areas, you then step foot into the lodge and elephant park. There you will see numerous elephants happily eating and basking in the beautifully landscaped gardens


Night Safari Itinerary

You can tour the park in an afternoon adventure or in a night safari setting. The night safari allows you to explore more of Ubud and its surroundings during the day with a proper lunch and then ending with a full night of adventure. For $135 USD, you will feed elephants, watch their talent show, ride elephants, and have a generous buffet dinner to conclude the night. Plus, the price includes a private driver picking you up and dropping you off at your hotel.

After your guide introduces you to the park, you can start feeding the elephants! For free, you can feed them a plentiful amount of coconut husks. For an extra cost, you can treat the elephants to special fruits
The highlight of the whole itinerary is riding an elephant! You will ride one with his or her personal trainer. The elephants are loved so you can feel at ease during the ride knowing they are well-taken cared of at the park
