This Bali Elephant Tour to Taro Elephant Safari Park delivers a magical, interactive elephant experience. Set in beautifully landscaped tropical grounds, Taro is a world-class, world-renowned facility and has been visited and endorsed by a multitude of celebrities and animal conservationists, including the late Steve Irwin. Taro started with an Australian man’s attempts to save a single Sumatran elephant and this fundamental conservation motivation continues to this day. Indeed, were it not for conservation based elephant tourism, the Sumatran elephant would be extinct in Bali by now.
Taro must be doing something right as the Park’s record in successfully breeding elephants in captivity is second to none. So please don’t be put off by the odd negative statement on Trip Advisor about ‘off duty’ elephants with a chain around their leg. This is done for their own safety (and to prevent them devouring the entire landscape!). Most people are enchanted by this Bali elephant tour and leave confident the elephants are happy and loved and well treated by their handlers.

STROLL… through the scenic paths of landscaped gardens with fish ponds and waterfalls that offer endless botanical discoveries, including clusters of vibrant and exotic orchids and plant species.
CUDDle…an elephant and fall in love! Taro’s low entry fee allows you to hand feed, touch, and take photos with the elephants for as long as you please. The elephant handlers will happily get them to pose with you, trunk around your shoulder, even being ‘crowned’ with a flower circlet by an elephant! (And no, you don’t have to pay for the food you feed them).
RIDE…an elephant through the lush grounds of Taro and adjacent jungle/farmland, finishing with a fun exit via the elephants’ bathing pool. Elephant rides are priced separately to Taro’s low entry fee, and for a small additional fee, you can also help wash the elephants at the end of your ride if you wish.
ENJOY…a delicious meal at Taro’s lakeside restaurant with a view of the beautiful grounds and the elephant bathing pool. You’ll find the food superb, as you sit and watch the nearby elephants rest and play.
WATCH… elephants paint, play basketball, football, do maths, and thoroughly entertain the crowd and themselves in a brief but fun elephant show (included in the entry fee).
ROMANCE… your partner with an evening Bali elephant tour for Taro’s Safari under the Stars. After taking in the elephant show at sunset, your elephant ride will take you through the misty forest of Taro at nightfall, on a specially designed, dimly lit trail for an enchanting elephant experience. Afterward, dine under the stars in the Palm Grove by the restaurant or, if weather doesn’t permit outdoor dining, in the restaurant.
