This is our third visit to this elephant park. Unlike the others in Bali this is a far less commercialised elephant park. The rides are scenic, the lunch that goes with the rides is great and filling and the staff that work with the elephants are great as well. You will not be disappointed.

We booked this outing online before arriving in Bali and received a nice discount. The driver picked us up from our villa in Seminyak and drove us out to the camp. Upon arrival, we saw elephants walking around with their trainers, one in the water. It seemed to be a very calm and relaxed place. The staff checked us in... More

This is a very well planned and run place. The elephants are well cared for and the staff friendly. The kids got to ride on the elephants and go into the water whilst on their backs, which was a real treat. We could watch from the restaurant, where the food was quite good and not too expensive. A good day... More

This was truely an amazing experience first we had an elephant ride which was very comfortable compared to the zoo. Then we had a tour of the pod chocolate factory and made our own chocolate. Had a beautiful lunch then bought a lot of chocolate. Great day out for the whole family.

We did not want a ride on an elephant so just had a walk around - an hour was more than enough to see the elephants relaxing in spacious grounds. No bad feelings about this place, but quite expensive to just get in

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

We went here as part of our day trip around bali. Its about a hour from seminyak. As part of our tour we got a discount on the price which was good, We got 30 min elephant ride with lunch afterwards. It was pricey but i feel worth the money, hopefully the money going into caring for the elephants. The... More
