Home to one of the world's largest herds of captive Sumatran elephants, the Elephant Safari Park & Lodge in Taro, is host to 27 gentle jungle giants who reside at the 3.5 hectare Park. The latest addition to a list of remarkable activities offered by the Park is Bali's first twilight elephant trek "Safari Under the Stars."
This new attraction represents the first time that the Park will exclusively open to the public at night. A special trek route designed on night trails will offer an enchanted elephant experience.
Explained Nigel Mason, Owner and Founder of the award-winning Bali attraction: "The Park transforms at night into a truly magical setting providing an ambience that is incredibly exotic and romantic. 'Safari Under the Stars' really adds another dimension to the Park and adventure tours that has never been seen or done before. We are proud to be the first to deliver such a world-class unique experience to Bali."
"We have enhanced many of our Park facilities for 'Safari Under the Stars', including special lighting throughout the Parklands and surrounding national forest to heighten the experience and captivate our guests. We have also transplanted numerous large trees and added stone statues that are subtlety lit up at night," adds Nigel.
Guests who book Safari Under the Stars will enjoy meeting, petting and hand feeding the elephants upon arrival as well as exploring the Parks' acclaimed Elephant Museum, Information Gallery and botanical parklands.
A pre-dinner Elephant Talent Show with dazzling lighting and special effects is performed at the Discovery Show Arena each evening at 6:45 p.m. before guests embark on a moonlit night safari through Taro forest and the Park. After the night safari, guests are seated for a special four-course dinner prepared by the Parks' executive chef in the newly designed Pachyderm Palm Grove. The outdoor dining venue located beside the elephants' bathing lake provides a mesmerizing setting to observe the grazing giants at rest on their elephant pads.

Price includes Park Entrance, Elephant Talent Show, Night Safari and four-course Dinner plus air-conditioned return transfers and insurance. US$99 Adults, US$69 Children, US$27 Infant and a special family rate of US$302 Family.
