What You Can Expect

Elephant Safari Park and White-Water Rafting Adventure

Elephant Ride in the Elephant Safari Park

Arriving at the rafting center after pickup from your Bali hotel, meet your expert instructors and gear up for an exciting ride! In just fifteen minutes, you’ll be outfitted with a life vest and oars by your guide. Then, head down the river via accessible steps complete with handrails and scenic viewing platforms.

For approximately two hours, enjoy an exhilarating rafting adventure on Bali’s beautiful Ayung River. Launch into a spectacular 5-mile (9.6-km) stretch of river, set against a backdrop of pristine rainforest, towering gorges and lovely rice paddy terraces.

Your professionally trained and experienced river guides will pilot the safety-equipped Avon rafts through the best river runs, including 33 class II and III rapids. They’ll navigate the raft past dramatic drops and magnificent waterfalls to ensure your Bali rafting trip is an awesome experience.

End your action-packed river trip with a hot shower and fresh clothes in a facility that includes changing rooms and clean towels. Then, enjoy a hot gourmet buffet feast at the private onsite restaurant, overlooking Bali’s majestic mountains and rice fields.

After lunch, depart for the Elephant Safari Park and Lodge – an approximate half-hour drive away. This acclaimed elephant park was developed as a sanctuary for critically endangered Sumatran elephants affected by growing deforestation back in 2000 – each elephant has their own personal handler for caretaking!Your tour of the park park begins with a 15-minute talent show by these magnificent creatures. Be amazed by the elephants’ displays of intelligence as you watch them hula hoop, kick soccer balls, paint and demonstrate other incredible feats of strength and skill, all done under the watchful eye of their devoted trainers.

Next, take an unforgettable 35-minute elephant safari ride, sitting high atop a regal elephant in a teak wood chair. As you ride through the cool and tranquil forest in Taro, you’ll feel like the king (or queen!) of the jungle. This close-up interaction in a tropical park setting is an experience you won’t soon forget.

When you come back down to the ground, enjoy a half-hour tour of the elephant museum, with more than 1,000 exhibits including fossil artifacts dating back five million years. Look with awe at prehistoric mammoth tusks, elephant skulls, tiger claws, bone carvings, ceremonial pieces and a 300-year-old carved African elephant tusk.

Finish your elephant safari with an exciting elephant splash in the park’s lake, where you can bathe the elephants, feed them, interact with adorable baby elephants and take memorable souvenir photos – ideal for the entire family!

Your day trip ends with return transport to your Bali hotel.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended July 2014

This tour was fabulous. We did it about 7 years ago when we were in Bali and did it again now in July 2014, when we returned with our 10yo daughter. Our daughter just loved it. White water rafting was so exciting, scenery was beautiful and we always felt safe and guides are fantastic. Elephants were fabulous, you are allowed to interact with them, cuddle, feed and workers will happily take photos with your camera without seeking money. All staff are chatty and happy and love their jobs. Buffet lunch was also very nice and scenic up on Canopy. Highly recommend. Only problem was our daughters seat in raft kept deflating but our guide was constantly doing his best to keep pumping it up for her whilst navigating the river. You should do this!
