The Sumatran elephants are the smallest breed of elephants and in danger of becoming extinct. We chose to go here to see them and only fed and not rode them as we didn't want to contribute to the exploitation. The visit was indeed a great one!

It was cool and thrilling riding the elephant and feeling his movement dynamics. The mahout spoke nice english and explained a lot about elephants and balinese culture. Nice view from the restaurant, nice shop. The photographer was also OK. Would 100% recommend.

This was worth every penny spent to ride the elephants. Even though we were only there for a couple of hours- we were very entertained. It as really neat to see how well they cared for the elephants so you know where your money is going to wards. Highly recommended!

Really enjoyed visiting the park and riding a beautiful Sumatran elephant. The park has a natural and peaceful vibe to it, and it was just nice being amongst it. The highlight for me was the elephant ride and the friendly banter I had with the handler; couldn't have asked for more. It might be a bit pricey compared to other... More

Yes the Elephants appear to be in good condition and well fed. However, there must surely be a better way to look after these animals rather than make them perform like a circus show and carry Western tourists around? Just all felt a bit wrong to be honest. Why not build a natural looking environment for the Elephants to roam... More

We booked a short elephant ride (30 minutes) and a couple of baskets for feeding the elephants. You get on your designated elephant from a platform and you ride by twos. The ride takes you trough a path from which you can see rice fields, parrots and the surrounding jungle. At the end you go through a small pond and... More

We paid for a package tour from our cruise ship but due to delays in getting off the ship we only spent time at the Elephant Camp. Our tour included a buffet lunch and a drink as well as a ride on an elephant. The children loved the interaction with the elephants including feeding, riding and getting photos taken. The... More
