I wanted to ride an elephant in Bali. Our guide took us here. The lady behind the counter would have preferred cash to the credit card we produced. It cost over $200 AUD for both of us to ride for 30 minutes. We walked past...More

As per the title this is what this place is. The poor animals there are in hell with no hope of a decent life. My partner was desperate to see an elephant up close and feed, touch etc so I agreed with reservation. However this...More

I left here feeling really sad and guilty, wishing i had researched a more animal friendly experience. I wanted to ride and feed an elephant which i did for 15 minutes at 1million 500 for 2 people. We were the only people in the park...More

We came to ride the elephants, but after finding out it was going to cost us ($110 each for 30 min) we decided to just feed them. Even this was expensive! I would recommend going to Bali Zoo for an elephant ride. Good day out,...More

TIP - There are various rates available, all about 1100,000 to 1400,000 IDR ( approx 110 to 140 AUS $) for this trip, so shop around. Another option is to hire a private taxi or 6 seater with driver for the whole day for approx...More

It's not that it wasn't a great tour, you just feel bad for them. I don't believe these animals are mis-treated, I think they are well cared for, but you realize you don't need to to be riding them. 15 minutes is probably good enough...More

As much as you'd hope the elephants are well looked after they aren't. I noticed various sores on multiple elephants, they are prodded with some kind of small pick axe and when not in "use" being chained to the concrete in a small area with...More

It was such a great experience riding the elephants here. It's a very quiet place unlike the others in Bali. We had the 30 minutes ride for 2 which cost around £125. Little pricey but we enjoyed it. We had a full 30 min ride...More

ATV was fun - but the equipment is old and tyres are bald which didn't impact too much but on a couple of occasions prevented ATVs getting up slopes which they should manage easily. Added to the fun though! Elephant ride was fun - animals...More

Suggested by our driver as a closer and more intimate alternative to the heavily promoted Elephant Safari Park, we were pleasantly surprised by the tranquility of the surroundings and the friendly staff. We had a wonderful experience riding on the elephants which were healthy and...More

If you care about the welfare of the animals at this horrible place then don't go here! It's seriously not worth the money. You will leave in tears knowing that you have given money to these people...
