Visit Bali Zoo with a standard ticket or upgrade for an extra fee to enjoy animal experiences such as a mud bath with elephants, breakfast with orangutans, a night safari with a buffet dinner and fire dance, or the chance to play mahout (elephant driver) for the day. Some Bali Zoo ticket packages include meals and door-to-door transfers from Ubud and south Bali, sparing visitors the risks and hassles of driving.

How to Get There
About 7 miles (11 kilometers) south of Ubud, Bali Zoo is easily accessible from Sanur and Kuta. The Kura Kura tourist bus stops here en route from Duty Free Stores (DFS) Bali in Kuta to Ubud, with a stop at McDonald’s in Sanur as well. Many visitors prefer to book ticket packages that include door-to-door round-trip transfers.
When to Get There
The Bali Zoo is open from 9am to 5pm daily. Night safari dinner evenings run from Monday to Friday, with the popular orangutan breakfast encounter before opening. As many families choose to spend the entire day here, there is rarely a quiet time to visit.
The Bali Zoo with Kids
From colorful tropical birds and lions to elephant baths and orangutan encounters, the Bali Zoo can be a magical experience for children, who’ll jump at the opportunity to be a mahout. Included in the admission ticket price are a range of animal displays and talks for older children, while little ones will appreciate the miniature water park and petting zoo.
