Riding on Lady Gigi's back with coach Made was wonderful experience. Feeding Lady Gigi was even thrilling. The ground was clean and the staff is professional; we did not have to wait long. We met Ibu Yanti with her baby 'Fajar'. Ibu Yanti was originally from Minas, Riau and was saved from the forest fire. You can book via Email... More

I understand from research I did after visiting this park that they do some good conservation work. However, unfortunately, this was not evident when visiting. The focus was almost entirely on tourists getting the best photograph. There was no information obviously available about conservation or rescue, and when we asked a member of staff they suggested we asked a mahout.... More

The kids loved this, especially feeding the elephants and playing with them. The restaurant is very good too, with an excellent buffet. They take photos of you for purchase, but are also happy to take pictures with your camera for free. I don't know whether the elephants are treated cruelly as some reviewers have said, but they, and the whole... More

A rare opportunity to understand and greet Sumatran elephants in a park that aims to be a sanctuary. It's part of a complete Bali holiday.

The facilities are all very nice, clean and well-kept however the park is fairly small and there's not much to do. However, what they do have, is enjoyable and very well organised. The wait for an elephant ride was around 40 minutes for me which was fine as the time flew by. The ride lasted for 30 minutes which was... More

Would not recommend. Elephant riding is the single, cruelest activity you can possibly engage in. Read about the elephant crush which is designed to physically and mentally break the spirit of baby elephants so that they can take humans on their backs. Afterwards they often don't recognise their own mothers after days of continual torture. Look for something like the... More

I'm a huge elephant lover! Our day spent at the Elephant Safari Park was amazing and such a wonderful experience and memory for our whole family. The wonder and surprise on our children's faces was priceless and to be able to feed, pat, cuddle and photograph ourselves with the elephants was beautiful. The 30min elephant safari ride through the forest... More

I went to the elephant Safari park with no expectations... I had no idea what to expect but I can assure that the it exceeded my wildest dreams... The parks museum area was small but informative... My favourite part was definitely being able to feed the elephants... The staff were very generous with the amount of food we could feed... More

We booked this via our tour operator as he recommended it as the best for a half day outing. We were able to get a private car as requested which made the 1.5 hour trip each way from Sanur much easier. The park was extremely clean and well organised. We took our two kids 7 and 11 and both enjoyed... More
