We had a once in a lifetime experience here. Not only were we able to spend interactive time daily with the Elephants we were there at a sacred time of year,Nyepi. You arrive to a very efficient check in with cool fruit welcome drinks and a cool towel and are led through the massive wooden doors which open to the... More

My husband and I just returned from the trip and stayed 5 nights at the Elephant Safari Park Lodge. We celebrated our 33 years wedding anniversary so we booked an ultimate honeymoon package. The place was immaculately landscaped, the staff completely gave their best to please (thanks for Ketut & Maddy, just to mention a few of the staff)). Our... More

As Ubud only offer its valley view and green ricefield, you can go here to feel another atmosphere of Ubud, that is RIDING AN ELEPHANT...!! Not just feel the journey of being on elephant's back, but before entering the park, an elephant museum will welcome you. There's so many elephant thingy here, start from its history and the fossil of... More

This was an amazing experience. My husband, children (7&11) and myself thought this was the highlight of our trip. You must stay here instead only doing the day trip. There's so many fantastic inclusions like bathing and swimming with the elephants. Also the many elephant chauffeur rides from our room to dinner. The meals were delicious and so cheap considering...

We had a wonderful day here at the Elephant park. The park is very well cared for and so much education happening. All the staff were sharing or explaining. Riding the elephants were just wonderful. Would love to go here again and highly recommend this for all ages. We were there in May and the weather was perfect...I am glad... More

We got our own driver to take us and it cost approx $60Aud for the ride and show. The ride was lovely but I would've necessarily ride them again. But feeding, petting and interacting with the elephant and their mahoot was fantastic! The show was short and old-school but still very cute. The elephants certainly seem well cared for with...

If you are tossing up between staying here or doing a day trip, definitely STAY HERE! its amazing, and so beautiful. The park owner has put a lot of thought into making the overnight experience so much more than the day trip. Beautiful food, very entertaining show, great staff and of course majestic elephants. Make sure you get up early... More

This trip was certainly worth the 2hour drive - I absolutely loved every minute of it! The elephants are so loved and well looked after & they have such personalities. We paid $86 USD and it included the elephant ride, the show, an amazing buffet lunch, and transfers to and from the our resort in Nusa Dua (it was exceptional... More

I'm an elephant lover and people have to realise that these animals are chained for a reason. All the negative reviews are from people that need a reality check, these elephants are in a park not Africa. Yes they are chained but each elephant has a dedicated trainer that cares for the elephant. One trainer even referred to his elephant... More
