What's the real purpose here a true sanctuary and preservation and research of these intelligent, social animals where they roam in a more free and natural environment or preservation and increase of the bank account by the owners and kodak moments for families, then they leave. I do appreciate the fact that they came from a more abusive environment which... More

Loved this place. Elephants in abundance. Beautiful setting friendly staff. Up close and personal with these huge animals was a once in a lifetime experience. Feeding the baby elephant by hand was a treat

Reading reviews I'm disappointed to see some of the negative comments with regards to the park. Yes the elephants are chained during the night, which upon entering the park, myself and my husband were quite put off by... However, after spending the morning with the elephants and their Mahouts we soon realised how loved these elephants were (with our mahout... More

Really regret this trip. As an elephant lover-it's horrible to see these beautiful animals so sad. The handlers have awful looking sticks with sharp ends which they dig into the elephants. Didn't realise the elephants did tricks-so cruel-had to leave it was so upsetting.

We hired a driver for the day and went to this. The park is beautiful and you can lay there and relax though. There was nothing to do. We went down to see the baby elephant and seen 5 minutes of the show as they started it early and that was it. The handlers where so rough on the elephants... More

We were a bit concerned about the price but agreed afterwards that it had been well worthwhile. The park is pristine and the staff are really friendly and informative. The elephant ride was the highlight of the holiday for my teenage daughter. Also the lunch was very good.

Night time ride and dinner. Food was delicious and the ride was fun! It is very far from any of the main suburbs and took 2 hrs drive from Seminyak which is a bit long and boring.

We (couple in our 30s) chose to visit this park over others as we heard that it treated it's elephants better. I dread to think how bad the others are having been here. The good: -beautifully kept grounds -a great view point across the neighbouring rice fields The bad: -very little to do there if you have already decided not... More

Great place to get in touch with elephants saved from Java. The 30 elephants, including babies, look happy. Beautiful and very clean location. Good food at the restaurant. Good value!
