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

I made the mistake of not finding out the cost before arriving at the camp and was surprised to find out that the cost of a 30 minute elephant ride and lunch was approximately 1,100,100 IDR per person. Having said that (and I only have myself to blame for not finding out before hand), we had a lovely 3 course... More

Okay guys, do you know your elephant? I know mine! My Indonesian Sumatran & Borneo elephants! Do you know that their status is: Critically Endangered!!! The Asiatic elephant is the only living species of the genus Elephas Maximus and is distributed in south east asia. Here at the elephant camp the elephants are coming from Sumatra (E.M. Sumatranus). Asian elephants... More

As stated, this is not cheap and the meal was very small and pretty poor quality. We arrived about 11am and it was starting to get very busy. I would suggest you arrive earlier. It is a well organized affair, with you being told "only 10 minutes", on quite a few occasions. Having said the above, I thoroughly enjoyed the... More

Not a lover of animals in captivity but these elephants seem to be very well looked after. Our carer does this job because he loves animals and was very informative and fun on our ride. Highly recommend this activity 😎

Fantastic experience. Friendly, funny and guides who obviously have a special relationship with these beautiful animals. They provided much information about the elephants plight. It was a highlight of our trip.

The elephants appear to be very well looked after, everyone is very friendly. If you are wanting to ride an elephant I suggest this is the place to do it. The lunch was nice and the highlight was defiantly spending time with the sun bear, by far the best experience of the whole trip

This was the highlight of my trip to Bali - have always wanted to ride an elephant! Although rather expensive, the 30 minute ride through a jungle is beautiful. The elephant were rode on were Rio and Helen were lovely and took us across water and even played the harmonica. The riders seemed to know the elephant very well and... More

We were a family of 6. My mother in-law (67yrs) had never been on an elephant and was so very excited at the end of the day. We didn't get to have a pic with the sun bear because he was a little tried but that is ok. Overall the day was very good and the lunch was basic. This... More

We went there with our 5 year old son and 7 year old daughter. Both loved it. Mary (the elephant) carried mom and daughter while AJ (another elephant) carried dad and son. We also did the Pod chocolate factory along with this and had a pretty good time. The included meal was only marginal however. We ordered pizza and then... More
