Bali Adventure Tours - "A must do!!! Excellent experience!"

A condition of our trip to Bali from our teenage daughters was to go to an Elephant camp, we did alot of reviewing prior to our trip and Elephant safari park was the stand out.
During the second week of our trip we chose to book online using their app, simple and 15% discount given, includes transfers, elephant ride, lunch and museum etc.
We were picked up from our hotel in Sanur around 8am, Our driver Roger was prompt and very friendly, chatting throughout our drive up to and back from Ubud.
Upon arrival we collected our tickets (due to booking online) a staff member then greeted us showed us where to go, at your own pace. I need to stress this would have to be the most relaxing tour we've ever done, just about everything is done when you're ready, it's like a well oiled machine- your name is called for the ride if you're not there/ready they just take the next one no problem.
We walked the beautiful pathway and took photos of the fish and nature, heading down to the Elephant area. Whilst waiting to be called for the Elephant ride we feed and interacted with multiple elephants, including the baby elephant Dawn. The ride itself is extremely calming taking in the nature and surroundings of the park. The lunch has a good variety and plenty to have, drinks aren't included in the package, but aren't that expensive.
The elephant show goes for about 15 minutes. You're able to continue interacting with the elephant's throughout the day. You can also view and purchase photos that were taken on the Elephant, the cost is very reasonable.
The elephant museum is very informative, the shop is reasonably priced, my daughter bought a beautiful s/s elephant ring cost was under $25aus
We saw 2 elephant's chained up, this only done whilst away from their keeper, otherwise they would roam free and anything could happen!
The age range we saw here was fantastic, from little bubs to the elderly.
We had a fantastic time, the entire day was a joy, my husband and I have been to elephant camps before in Thailand and absolutely loved it, but Elephant safari park exceeded anything we had done before, the whole set up of the park was fantastic.
I would highly recommend anyone travelling to Bali to visit Elephant Safari Park, we are already looking at returning next year for my husbands 50th, and maybe staying a night or 2 in their lodges.
