We had a great time today- my first elephant ride. I have never laughed so much and the elephant keeper shared with us the history of the animals (from Sumatra) and educated us about their routines and past. Sure, they were not running free, like any zoo they have enclosures for the monkeys parrots ets- these were 3x5 mtrs. I listened and asked questions; it takes a lot of feed- 250kg for ea elephant daily.. fruit on Bali is sometimes scarce, so is bought from Java. Yes, we paid for tomatoes to fed to Elsa after the ride.. she loved it & so did we! Bali is a poor Island, the more tourists to Bakas, the better able to look after the animals here. We tipped the trainer too, he was full of info and answered all questions. The photos taken by the park can be purchased for 100,000 rp ($10 aud) each.. we took one each only as we had taken photos & movies ourselves. Lunch was buffet style, tasty rice, chicken crumbed pork, and we fed the watermelon to the monkeys. This is not a zoo, it is elephant ride and the same start place for white water rafting, As an interaction with the elephants, I loved it! Bagus!!
