Im not sure on the welfare if the elephants here. Thr Mahout s use bullhooks on them, snd it seems like each elephant has a dirt dpot eith a concrete pad and chain attached for them when theyre not working. Steve Irwin though t this place was good, which is why we went to that one, but maybe its changed... More

This park is quite upscale for the local expectations, but the experience is worth it. Talking with the Handlers makes it clear the elephants are well cared for and diminishes some of the politically correct anti zoo sentiments we expected.

Brialliant! I'm so glad my partner made the executive decision to book this trip, as I initially felt it was way too expensive at around $100AUD / adult. For our money we got to see a world class animal park .. the feeling I got was that the handlers were there because they are really passionate about the animals and... More

As a massive elephant lover, this was the one thing I had to do in Bali. Elephants are treated well, they seem happy. I didn't like them being chained but after talking to some staff and researching the Internet I realised it is a safe alternative for park guests and for the other elephants! All elephants are rescued and they... More

This park is advertised as being a rescue facility for elephants, which is why I decided to visit with my partner. We chose to not ride the elephants and we went on the most basic "tour" instead. The price included entry into the park, shows, feeding and photos with the elephants. The whole tour lasted approximately 6 hours including hotel... More

Elephants are far too intelligent of creatures to be treated this way. Is a ride that takes advantage of an abused animal really worth your money and support? No. Please do not support elephant riding.
