Day One

With our Ultimate Adventure Package you will take part in Bali Zoo’s most unique animal experiences as well as enjoy a three-night stay Sanctoo Villas, a special place for guests to rejuvenate their mind, body and soul in a tranquil and luxurious environment. After premium transfer via Vellfire MPV to the villas, only 50 minutes from the airport, you’ll be quickly checked in at 2pm. Unwind in your villa and enjoy the many amenities before making your way to afternoon tea in our open-air restaurant overlooking the lush expanse of rice terraces and greenery. From 3 – 5pm we’ll be offering a range of teas along with a selection of traditional Indonesian and Balinese snacks.

Day Two

Your second day of the package begins with our Mahout for a Day program; the only one of it’s kind in Indonesia. At 7am you will stroll over to our brand new Kampung Sumatra area of the Bali Zoo where you will be greeted by a guide for orientation and start the day with a Balinese breakfast at our restaurant overlooking the elephant pool. After your meal you’ll board your elephant from our 100-year old traditional Sumatran Buffalo House for a morning ride with your personal mahout to the nearby scenic Wos River where your training begins with a lesson in how to bathe and scrub an elephant. Then hop back on your pachyderm and head over to his pad for more tutorials beginning with cleaning duties followed by more mahout instructions on how to behave around the elephant, learning basic vocal commands, how to control and drive the elephant, and how to board and disembark the animal safely. After a thirty-minute break you’ll continue your Mahout for a Day experience from 12 – 1:30pm followed by a two hour relaxing spa treatment from 2pm that includes a traditional Balinese massage, lulur scrub and Jacuzzi. The rest of the afternoon is yours to either enjoy wandering our beautiful zoo grounds or unwinding in the comforts of your villa.

Day Three

You will greet your final day of the package with a one of a kind experience not available anywhere else in Indonesia - breakfast at 8am in the company of our friendly great apes with our Breakfast with Orangutan session. Afterwards you have free unlimited access to the Bali Zoo where you can view our diverse collection of more than 300 exotic animals a majority of which are indigenous to Indonesia, including rare and endangered species such as the Komodo Dragon, Sumatran and Bali Starling.
