The zoo provides amazing experiences such as elephant expeditions, and breakfast with the orangutans, as well as being well known for its standards of animal care and commitment to conservation.
The first three animals that led to the beginning of the zoo were the deer, a cassowary, and an orangutan. It is, therefore, no surprise that the three have been chosen as the three animals that bear the brand identity of the zoo. With time the zoo has now blossomed into a paradise of fantastic wild animals which include the king of the jungle, the African lion, a variety of crocodiles, elephants and many more species of animals. A visit to the zoo is the perfect way to relax as you enjoy being taken through the various attractions.
Among the cat family, at Bali Zoo you can see the African lion and the Bengal tiger. The zoo gives you a rare opportunity to get to learn more about these animals. From their diet, mating, gestational periods and population in the world, there is a lot of beneficial information that can be acquired. This makes the zoo not only relaxing and entertaining but also educational for both children and adults.
There are also fascinating birds that are found in the zoo. The unique sounds of the birds chirping while parrots make mimicking sounds is a pleasant and relaxing experience.

If you are yet to know how to identify and distinguish between the two, there is no cause for alarm. By the end of the visit at the zoo, you will be able to tell the difference.
A zoo acquires its title because of its diversity and by how well their attractions give visitors an insight into the various animal species. Bali Zoo is as diverse as it can get.

As previously stated, beyond having the pleasure of seeing some of the world’s rarest animals, this zoo offers an array of exciting activities which one can take part in. For instance, have you ever wondered what riding on a Sumatran elephant feels like? It is incredible. There are several elephant safaris under different packages. The rides provide visitors with a once in a lifetime opportunity to have a look at the ambiance of nature from the back of the largest animal on land. There are professional mahouts, people who look after elephants, that guide tourists through the process so as to ensure safety. Also, visitors are allowed to take photos or hand-feel the elephants.
Another wonderful experience at the zoo is the Sanctoo Spa and Wellness center. One of the most fun-filled adventures at the zoo is the elephant expedition with revitalization treatment spa. Under this package, a visitor gets to go on an expedition on an elephant’s back and thereafter to the spa where there are plenty of activities like massages and other body treatments. While at the spa, visitors can delight themselves in different meals which are offered while simultaneously enjoying nature.
Further, one gets the option of choosing between different types of massages such as a holistic massage which features mud back application, a full body massage or other body treatments such as body scrubs. This is perfect so that one can rejuvenate after a long day of visiting the other attractions.
It gets even better. While at the zoo, there are different well-planned dining experiences that suit the needs of different visitors. The Wana restaurant provides a very ethereal dining experience.

One of the most beautiful and humbling aspects of the zoo is that it is very passionate about conservation of the environment and wildlife. This was the main aim of the founder of the zoo, Anak Agung. It is a sad reality that some of the animals are under the threat of being extinct following the consequences of global warming and other environmental factors. For instance, the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) classified elephants as critically endangered animals.
It is, therefore, upon us to take all the necessary steps to ensure that wildlife remains protected and looked after. A visit to the zoo will not only give you an opportunity to take part in the course but also educate you more about the need for conservation of wild animals. In recognition of their commitment to conservation, Bali Zoo was awarded the title of Best Conservation Institution 2017 by The Ministry of the Environment and Forestry Indonesia.
Bali Zoo is a fantastic place to visit for all the family See animals from around the world, and learn about conservation efforts to ensure that future generations are also able to see these wonderful animals.
