Description

As you arrive at Bali Zoo for check in, you’ll first pass through our brand new spacious Deer Park exhibit featuring our collection of Bawean, Sitatunga, Kijang, Timor and Javan Rusa deer.  From the Zoo you will take a short double decker bus ride to our 100-year old traditional Sumatran buffalo house (kandangkerbau) drop off point.  After disembarking at our grand 4-hectare Kampung Sumatra wildlife exhibit area, you will be invited to participate in our Elephant Encounter session that includes taking photos and hand feeding dozen Sumatran elephants that are currently classified as critically endangered by the IUCN (International Union for Conservation of Nature).  These gentle giants are from the Elephant Conservation Center in Palembang, Sumatra (the northern-most island of Indonesia) where they were rescued from habitat loss and human persecution. 

Before heading to dinner at Gayo Restaurant you’ll continue your tour with a visit to the Sumatran tiger, tapir and sun bear exhibits as well as a stop at our nocturnal animal encounter session located at the nearby waterfall area.  Dinner is served from 6:30 – 8:30pm but guests are able to join at any time during these hours.  After choosing from a large variety of soup, salad and grilled items from the lavish buffet you’ll be seated at tablesjust a few meters away from a small herd of six elephants adorned in colorful fabrics inspired by the decorated royal pachyderms of India, all accompanied by their mahouts in traditional Sumatran costume, andall perfectly set up for photo taking opportunities. 

At 7:30pm our troupe of elephants will lead in the performers for a Saman dance (the Dance of a Thousand Hands) on the Green Stage before temporarily exiting the area at 8:20pm.  Saman is a fast paced traditional dance from the Gayo ethnic group of Sumatra that is usually performed to commemorate important occasions.  Our elephants return at 8:30pm with a parade leading in the performers for the next attraction – a 20-minute fire dance inspired by the legendary great battle between the Hanoman, the white monkey god, and Ravana, the great King of Lanka, as told in the Hindu epic poem, the Ramayana.

The programme for the evening ends at 9pm with a photo session with our troupe of elaborately attired dancers.  A perfect conclusion and souvenir moment for an elephant dinner date guests will surely remember.

Even though it rained it was a great night, from the staff to the food it was fantastic. Everyone had a laugh at Jacki as he threw poo at us. We used the umbrellas as shields . The rain stopped for the fantastic fire dance. Lovely Buffet dinner. Would recommend it if you want adventure and fun. Would go again.
