Even if you have no sympathy or respect for animals, no one can be hartless enough to subject these poor animals to such cruelty. They are intelligent and they understand what you are doing to them. Imagine living your life that way.

We enjoyed seeing and riding the elephants but it was very expensive so not all of our family participated. We paid a small amount extra and my 9 year old son was able to go into the bear enclosure and feed and hold a bear which he enjoyed (they have the teeth ground down when they come to the park)....

I'm reviewing. Bali elephant camp in Carangsari and run by Ayung River Rafting. Not to be confused with other Elephant parks in Bali and which some other reviews seem to be referring to. Elephant Camp is awesome. The elephants are treated very well and live in a beautiful jungle setting on the banks of the Ayung River. You can watch... More

Generally an Elephant Zoo. You get a 30 minute ride on a circuit, together with hundreds of other people. Then after that get to watch a show which involved elephants playing football, and playing basketball. Reminded me of circus shows as a kid in the days when a level of animal cruelty was acceptable. Not nice to watch at all.... More

What a wonderful place, they really love and care for the elephants. It took about an hour by car from Ubud to get there. We had the elephant tour, which included a 30 min ride through the rainforest and a 3 course lunch, which was $85US each. The rainforest paths are all very clean and the elephants didn't have any...

If I could give this place a negative 1 million stars it would still not be enough. If you love watching elephants being beaten with a sharp hooked spear or a "trainer" pushing his fingernail into the eye of a baby elephant because they don't do what they are told then this place is for you.....any decent person should boycott...

Disgusting!! Elephants chained up with two chains and unable to move. Owners blatantly use bull hooks to hit the elephants in the face. A sad place for disgusting people to go to.

I had the displeasure of witnessing a these beautiful creatures chained up not by one chain...but by two. One on the front left leg and one on the right back leg with only a little give in the chain so that this poor creature was literally bolted to the floor. I was so upset we of course refused to pay... More
