We a have always been interested in elephants, and have visited tourist locations in India, Thailand and Bali previously. At this Elephant Camp at Carangsari - it was the first time we had a ride through the jungle for 30 minutes - and the elephant was unshackled. This was a real thrilling experience and the elephant and its handler were... More

Having never ridden an elephant before I was so excited for this but a bit worried about what condition I would find these creatures in. I could not have been more pleasantly surprised. Our elephant and all the others seemed well cared for and quite frankly pampered. Our elephant handler was kind and explained that he had trained the young... More

Elephants like people and appear to enjoy working too. This camp had 30 or so animals but they are kept chained up so as not to destroy the lovely gardens. They are well fed but the place is a bit too manicured and soulless. We did the night safari which is a cool idea but you can't see very much.... More

This was really disturbing. My son was so upset by the conditions the elephants were kept in. I'm sure the positive reviews here were paid for.

We went to the Elephant Camp,and it was extremely disappointing to say the least and expensive. The elephant was hit with a bull hook numerous times while we there, and the other elephants were chained up by both their front and back legs for hours. It was very sad seeing the elephants so distressed. There was also two bear enclosures... More

Went to Elephant camp and it was raining. Had a Mahout named Long, he handed me an umbrella and he had a lovely cheeky, joking nature. I had a fabulous ride.The elephant I rode was named Cindy and she was 23 years old and we went for a small swim and walked along a lovely scenic route. Got some great... More

Wow! This place was amazing ! You not only get to ride a genuine elephant in the jungle type setting , but you get to feed them and get up close to them and even have a delicious lunch as well ! Plus, just above that area is another enclosure where you can hold and feed a 45 kilo black... More

I'm not sure why I can't find the Volcano Biking tour here as its everywhere in Bali... anyway, its worth a review. I booked through Destination Asia once we were in Bali (staying in Ubud). The trip was half day, pick up at 8am, reach the top of the mountain at 9am to receive a complementary breakfast overlooking the Batur... More

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.
