We booked the Elephant Encounter including hotel transfers. Everything was perfectly organised and on time. The whole experience was amazing; informative, fun and everyone in the group had a chance to be involved and up close with the elephants. The elephants definitely seemed to enjoy the experience also. After feeding the elephants, we coated them in mud and washed them down. Lots of photo opportunities either professionally or using your own phone. A shower and delicious lunch followed. We then had time to explore the zoo. All in all, a great day.

Elephant mud fun was the best. They were so interactive and there was a good amount of the day spent with them. It was well worth the money

Cuddling the baby elephant was amazing. To get so close and interact with these beautiful animals was a once in a life time opportunity.

Easy e-ticket experience. Great hands-on , getting muddy and cuddling elephants. Feeding them direct by hand and getting sprayed full on from their trunks. Always felt safe , despite being so close to such big animals ( & calf ). Informative & friendly staff ( Madde & gang ). Fantastic & memorable experience.

When in Bali, make friends with majestic Sumatran elephants who roam freely. In spite of their size, elephants are some of the most gentle creatures you’ll ever encounter. With this exclusive experience, you can count on making memories for a lifetime. Get up close and personal as you step into a pool of mud along with the elephants. Romping around in mud not only cools the elephants down but also provides a protective layer to shield their body from the sun’s harmful rays. Not to mention, it also provides relief from insect bites. After rolling around in the mud, head to the river nearby to wash off the mud and splash around. Through your time you will learn fascinating things about these majestic creatures from the mahouts. Afterward, visit Bali Zoo and spend quality time interacting with native and exotic species including Sumatran orangutans, bears, African lions, and more! A scrumptious meal later ought to enrich your experience.
