Buffet breakfast with the orangutans and elephant is truly an awesome experience. We love it so much we have now enjoyed this heart warming experience 3 times and confident that we will be back!!
Our First Experience
We were very lucky to walk to breakfast following the elephant up the pathway and then watch the 2 orangutans enter the breakfast area swinging on the ropes tied between the trees. I was so excited as was my Mum who loves all animals but especially Orangutans and Elephants.
There are so many great options to choose from the buffet. From omelettes to Nasi Goreng to pancakes to name just a few, all the food is delicious!!
Mum and I were way too excited to sit still and eat, we just wanted to hang out with the orangutans. They are really cute and funny!!
I had an amazing experience with the orangutans. One of them took a liking to me and took me from my Mum. My Mum whom loves me dearly burst into fits of laughter as the orangutan beat me lovingly on the table, then looked at me in an extremely loving way. I was really lucky the zoo keeper was nearby to encourage the orangutans to return me to my Mum, it really didn’t want to let me go. If it wasn’t for he zoo keeper I think I would still be in the zoo. Don’t get me wrong it would be awesome to live with this cute orangutan but I’d miss my parents way too much!!
We were shocked with how much time we got to spend with the orangutans and elephant. They also have a couple of other guest animal appearances which the zoo keepers provide you with information about.
If you are an animal lover this is definitely a must do whilst in Bali, Dad who wasn’t as keen about orangutans as Mum left being totally awed by them!!
Our Latest Experience
For Mum’s birthday Dad surprised her with a holiday to Bali, she only found out 2 days before we went. You guessed it for her special day she requested to have breakfast with the Orangutans as she loved the experience so much earlier in the year.
This experience was another unforgettable moment. One of the orangutans fell in love with me….they are so affectionate!! I just have to share the photos with you where the orangutan gave me a big smooch!!
The orangutans are so much fun to watch, whilst you cannot touch them, if they touch you that is ok. They are so cheeky, one lifted up a ladies dress!! It is amazing how much they are like humans. We had a total ball with these gorgeous animals. You really cannot help but to fall in love with them. We felt so lucky to be able to get this close and enjoy the interaction the zoo keepers have with the orangutans.
We also had loads of fun with the elephants, for a small fee you can feed them. This is another fun experience we totally recommend. On this occasion a couple of people were chosen from the crowd and the elephant placed a hoop of flowers over them.
There are also a couple of beautifully colored parrots which you can spend time with.
There could be no better way than ending the visit with the orangutans than following the zoo keeper and the orangutan back to the enclosure. One of the orangutans makes her own way there by swinging on the ropes.
How Can I Get There?
When you book your tickets which you can do either online or through many tourist booking agents in Bali you can opt to have transport pick you up and drop you off at your accommodation.
We opted to arrange for a driver to take us. If you choose this option ensure you negotiate the price beforehand. When you go with your own driver you can arrange for them to take you to other destinations afterwards.
The other options would be a taxi or if you hold a motor bike license hire a scooter. You can even hire a scooter taxi. If you are in Bali for a period of time you can down load the Uber app and you will get your transport at a cheaper rate.
