Bali Zoo Overview

Home to one of the most impressive collections of wildlife in Indonesia, Bali Zoo stands out among the biggest highlights of this stunning island city. While the sheer variety of biodiversity is staggering, Bali Zoo is better known for its range of immersive experiences- whether it be dining with jungle beasts, going on elephant safaris, or nighttime tour of the Zoo.

Bali Zoo celebrates the richness of Indonesia's nature, exhibiting some of the rarest indigenous wildlife in the world. This one-of-a-kind zoological park is an excellent place to observe over 450 unique and exotic animals in a lush green, simulating atmosphere. Visit this zoo with our Bali vacation packages from India for an immersive experience, witnessing and interacting with the wildlife it cradles. 

The very entrance of the zoo is flanked by a family of zoo lions. The trail leads to incredible glimpses of the world's rarest faunas, including White tigers, Sumatran tigers, Sumatran elephants, kangaroos, orangutans, sun bears, binturongs, and deers. In the midst of the tropical foliage, reptiles such as pythons, iguanas, green snakes, and turtles can be spotted.

The Bali Zoo offers an enthralling variety of special experiences. The Night Zoo, for example, lets one explore the zoo grounds in the dark, while Breakfast with Orangutan quite literally sets a table for your family and the friendly monkey. The Bali Zoo goes beyond its way to cater to its younger guests as well. The Jungle Splash Water Play is the on-site water amusement park at the zoo, allowing visitors to unwind in the water after a long day of touring in the sun. Pony Rides can be an excellent fun activity for children as well, while the Petting Zoo is a great way to interact with baby animals.
