The Elephant Safari Park is located at the Village of Taro north of Ubud. It has Bali 's largest herd of 27 Elephants including 2 baby elephants that can be hand fed. Get up close and personal with these incredible animals in a beautiful tropical park setting. Elephants can be seen immersing themselves in the park lake, in between riding, painting or other activities. Hand feed them, touch them, take photos with them, then learn more about the elephants ancestry and diversity at the Park's historical and graphic displays. Displays of elephant intelligence and their capabilities can be viewed at the Park Arena and elephants can also be seen painting at selected times daily.
One of the main attractions here is taking the Elephant Safari Ride. It lets you ride a gentle elephant and takes you into the jungles of Taro. Sit on a wooden chair perched on the back of the elephant as you ride through the park enjoying the beauty of the jungles.
