Accommodation rating: Good Standard
The Elephant Safari Park & Lodge is situated near to the village of Taro in central Bali and is surrounded by tropical forest. Set in 3.5 hectares of landscaped gardens, the lodge offers a range of safari-themed accommodation spread throughout the park. The lodge was founded in 1997 by entrepreneur and conservationist Nigel Mason, who was living in Indonesia and took on the care of nine elephants that had been brought to Sumatra and kept in poor conditions. Nigel led a rescue expedition 3,000km through Sumatra and across Java and Bali before finally reaching safe haven in Taro. The inspiring story of this adventure was recorded in the documentary entitled "Operation Jumbo." Today the park is the only place in Bali where visitors may experience and share common habitat with the lodge's herd of 27 Sumatran elephants. Visitors can observe, hand-bathe, feed and personally interact with this rare species.
