Family Activities at Bali Zoo

Mahout for a Day programme

Get Zoological in Bali!

Mix up your next holiday in paradise with a trip to Bali Zoo, where kids can get hands-on caring for elephants, cuddling up to pythons and dining with lions.

The island’s first and only Balinese-owned zoological park is the home of Indonesia’s sole Mahout for a Day programme. This all-day experience lets you get up close to the remarkable Sumatran elephants and their trainers, learning some of the commands and skills to handle these amazing creatures.

Kids aged six to 12 can also try their hands at being a zookeeper for a day, preparing animals’ meals, creating enrichment toys and getting cuddly with the babies of the Animal Clinic & Nursery.
