Get up close and personal with Bali's largest herd of 31 Sumatran elephants at the island's premiere interactive and intimate elephant experience set among lush botanical gardens and jungle. Our resident giants can be seen immersing themselves in the park lake, in between riding, painting or other activities. Guests can observe, hand feed, touch, and take photos with our elephants, all the while learning more about them along the way.

Elephants in this park spend most of their time chained and unable to walk around. The rest of the time they are forced to carry tourists on their backs or do tricks like painting. Please do not support his place.

Hi, yes, I think best to book. You need a couple of hours, but try to make sure you are there for when they take all of the elephants down to the river to bathe!!! When I went, I think this was about 9am.
