    What to Expect
    This is a typical itinerary for this product

    Stop At: Bali Zoo, Jl. Raya Singapadu, Sukawati 80582 Indonesia

    Following hotel pickup, you will arrive at Bali Zoo to receive a brief introduction to the program while enjoying a complimentary snack and coffee or tea. Meet your English-speaking mahout who will tell you about the gentle giants you’re about to meet, provide information about their natural behavior, how to take care of them, and answer any questions you might have. You will be provided with a selection of fruit for feeding them and then proceed to the river bank where you’ll be introduced to the free-roaming giants and have a chance to feed, and interact with them.
    After that, you will walk to play in the mud and sand spa. With a generous mix of earth, water, and fun, you get covered in mud along with your new elephant friends who love getting dirty. During this time, you will have a chance to observe their behavior. Eventually you will join them for a splash, bathe, and scrub down. Then you’ll return for a shower and change followed by a relaxing lunch until noon.
    You’ll be free to explore the rest of the zoo and the collection of over 300 rare and exotic animals including rare and unique species. This experience is designed to not only enlighten you on the behavior of these magnificent mammals, but also leave you fulfilled having participated in one of the most unique outdoor adventures you will have during your stay in Bali whether visiting as a couple or the entire family.

    The activity to get so close to the gentle giants have been awesome! The Mahouts were really gentle and answered all your questions. The elephants seemed to be in a good condition! Is quite expensive but every cents worthy to bath and give them scratches!...More
