No time to do all the touristy stuff at the zoo? No problem! Simply pick this elephant back ride, so you can head home with memories and stories to boast about. After all, how many people can say they've sat on an elephant? On this tour, you'll get up close with Sumatran elephants, the largest of its kind, famous for its intelligence and sensitive nature.
Your Bali elephant adventure begins at a 100-year old kandang kerbau (Sumatran buffalo house), where you shall board the magnificent creature. Once you’re comfortably seated, a mahout shall lead you through a scenic pathway, winding through parts of the zoo leading to the park where these elephants sleep and bathe.
Your tour continues towards the wilderness, as you cross the Wos River with a natural waterfall and grassy valley greeting you. At Bale Bengong you’ll disembark for a refreshing young coconut drink, after which you’ll trek uphill to the area’s oldest village temple – which is over five centuries old.
Once your ride ends, you’re invited to pet and feed the elephants, before enjoying a lunch at the Okavando Restaurant. By the way, this restaurant is just meters away from the African lion’s den! And if you thought that’s all, you’d be glad to know that the Zoo Explorer and Animal Encounter sessions for the day are included in this tour activity!
