The elephants are stunning. They seem to have a beautiful relationship with their trainer. Our trainer was Ketut and his elephant was Sin Sin. It was a beautiful ride, and Ketut was so friendly and very funny. Loved engaging in some great conversation with him, had us laughing the whole ride. The elephants actually play harmonicas for you it is... More

The Bali Elephant Camp is a great experience. We spent full morning and booked through local agency in Sanur. Driver waiting at hotel at 8.15am and everything went smoothly. Arrived at the park we were welcomed and went for a 30 min ride. During the ride the mahout informed us about the live of the 13 Sumatra elephants of the... More

My son and I really enjoyed our visit here. The elephants appeared well cared for and the staff were friendly. I chose this park over the others after reading concerns about the care of elephants at some of the other parks and I was not disappointed. The lunch, which was included in our admission, was also delicious.

Here we paid for the elephant ride (100usd each) our elephant was called Mary and we were taken around the camp and forest for 30 minutes. After... More

We were taken here by our driver after whitewater rafting just down the road and we were shocked at the prices being charged. We couldn't justify the $450 for the whole family to ride the Elephants, so we paid for 2 rides and found the rest of the family could enter and look at the Elephants and take photos at... More

We did this as our one excursion on our holiday, not cheap (around $500 NZD for a family of four), it was also a lot of travelling (4 hours there and back in terrifying Bali traffic!). However, it was amazing, the elephants are totally worth it, the trek was lovely and our children were gob-smackingly happy and overwhelmed with these... More

We enjoyed the Bali Elephant Camp, it was nice to see the elephants roaming around and we did not get the impression that they were treated badly. The place is absolutely beautiful with all the trees and view, it's just breathtaking. We loved how our rider informed us about the camp and facts about the elephants. Tip: At the reception... More

We enjoyed the drive out to the jungle park. We liked seeing the elephants and having the ride on them. For those in our group who had not had that experience before it was especially interesting. Our guides were well informed and interesting and confident. We did not get the impression that the animals were badly treated. We also enjoyed... More

On the plus side - a nice drive out to the park. On the negative side - : A completely inedible lunch (nasi goreng was stone cold and the fried chicken must have been cooked at least 6 times. Absolutely horrible and we are not at all fussy eaters. The chips were rock hard and I'm pretty sure the chicken... More
