Fantastic morning. Hotel pick up was prompt and got us there on time. We werent expecting elephants to be a part of it too, but it was! All animals were extremely gentle and looked after. Food was fantastic. Would definitely recommend
Amazing, the breakfast itself was huge something for everyone with so much variety and staff very attentive. Not only to you get to be up close to Orang utans but you can hand feed elephants, hold birds, feed a porcupine hold a monkey and so much more. Staff will take photo's for you on your camera as well as buy souvenir photos. After breakfast the zoo is unreal, you can ride the elephants and feed tigers, crocodiles and make sure you go into aviary as lemurs are so cheeky. Wonderful day for both children and adults. Our driver picked us up from Hotel and waited until we were ready to go very friendly.
We where picked up by a pleasant driver the food was amazing great variety and all freshly prepared the staff where all very friendly and couldn't do enough for you had photos taken with the very friendly young orangutans they also had 2 elephants a number of birds and a baby hedgehog.They are doing a lot of work upgrading the animal enclosures to a modern style zoo will be fantastic when completed well worth a visit.
My family and had a fantastic time at the zoo highly recommend it
A great experience. The Orangutan's were lovely and it was great to be able to get so close to them. You can't reach out and touch them, but they did reach out and touch us.
Feeding the elephants was also great, as was feeding the tiger extra cost later on in the zoo.
Well worth a trip and something you will never forget.
We absolutely loved this. The Orangutans gave us lots of laughs. Very Cheeky! The Zoo is well set out. The Gibbons really held our attention. Like everywhere we went in Bali, the staff were amazing.
Well worth doing.... Get up close and personal with more animals than just the orangutans!
Only thing I would say is maybe call the tour something else as you don and #39;t get much time with the orangutans!!
But still a good morning
We thoroughly enjoyed this experience . We got to spend enough time with the orangutans and also got to interact with elephants and some birdlife. The staff took pics for us on our own phone and camera as well as taking photos that you can purchase. Brekkie was good and zoo is excellent
I had a great time with the Orangutan's at the Zoo, we got to spend about 5 minutes interacting with them, they are cheeky and try to steel things out of your pockets and your hat. The breakfast was really good as well. Tr
he driver collect me on time.
Lady Aly and I booked the tour through Viator and took the tour last week whilst in Bali.The booking process was very simple and confirmatory emails were received in a matter of minutes.
Even though the tour only had one previous review a very negative one, we decided to give it a go.
The driver arrived at our hotel at the agreed time, and he was very courteous and the vehicle was very well presented. The trip to the zoo from Tanjong Benoa took around an hour.
We arrived at the zoo and entry to the tour went without a hitch. We then proceeded to the breakfast/interaction area.
Upon arrival, we were escorted to our seat and given a number which would be called out later when it was our turn to enjoy the company and interact with the orangutans. There were three young orangutan, 2 elephants, a number of exotic birds and a porcupine in the breakfast area.
The breakfast was well presented with good quality food and lots of it. There was lots of variety to choose from, with the traditional western bacon and eggs, different types of cereals, and pancakes, syrups, fruits, toast, juices, tea and coffee.
Whilst enjoying our breakfast, we had the opportunity to watch the others before us take their turn at engaging and having fun with the young orangutan. All the while everyone else had the chance to have pictures taken with the elephants and to hold the birds.
For a small fee, you could purchase a fruit and vegie basket to feed the elephants.
Our turn came to enjoy the company of the orangutan and it was an enjoyable experience not to be missed. The keepers helped us with positioning so that the orangutan were not put out by us and we were directed as to ensure we had the best opportunity to get the most out of the experience. The orangutan seemed to enjoy the experience as well, with the younger one really acting it up and stealing hats , sunglasses or anything else she could get her hands on.
The breakfast/interaction lasted until 10:00 am. There was no rush to get people out, the staff were more than happy to let people grab a few late photos.
After one of the most enjoyable times of our trip to Bali, we proceeded to have a look at the rest of the zoo.
Although not large by any means, the zoo had a very good collection of animals. It was very easy to get around and all of the displays were well kept and in good condition.
At Gibbon Island, the residents put on quite a show. Swinging from tree to tree and treating us to a real sing song of howls and shrieking.
It only took around 90 mins to get around the rest of the zoo, and we departed around 11:30 for the 1 hour trip back to our hotel.
We gave this trip a five star rating based on value for money and the overall experience that it offers for visitors.
Unless you have the opportunity to visit an orangutan sanctuary, I don't believe you will have a better experience.
All of the animals are well cared for and all look to be in very good health and spirit.
Lady Aly and I will certainly be returning for another visit when next we are in Bali.
Many thanks to the staff, and in particular, many thanks to the orangutang family and the elephants who made our trip so enjoyable.
