Since opening in 1997 the Mason Elephant Park has garnered a reputation around the world as the blueprint on how elephants should be cared for in captivity. Set in the misty hinterlands of Taro, this multi-award winning park is Bali’s only dedicated elephant rescue facility and is home to 31 endangered Sumatran elephants, 4 of which were born here. The park provides guests with the opportunity to interact and learn about these gentle giants while giving the elephants a comfortable and safe environment.

The Park is set in 3.5 hectares and has been carefully landscaped to mimic as much as possible the original environment of the elephants’ previous home in Sumatra. The location in central Bali was also chosen for its cooler climate and more tropical location. For those reasons the elephants are kept cool and comfortable in this lush tranquil landscape.

Our park follows the ‘5 Freedoms of Animal Welfare’ established in Great Britain in 1965. Freedom from hunger or thirst, freedom from discomfort, freedom from pain, injury or disease, freedom to express most normal behavior, and freedom from fear and distress. All elephants are under 24/7 veterinary care and are provided with the correct diet and vitamins daily.

We do not use brutal or cruel training methods, as all training is by repetition, reward and patience. Elephant rides are on specially-designed light teak wood seats that are heavily padded to cause no discomfort or injury to the elephant’s back. Riding an elephant actually helps by providing necessary exercise for its muscles, bone density, foot health and general wellbeing. In addition to our own regulations we actively support other like-minded global charities.

In our 20 years of operation, the Mason Elephant Park had been recognised by the international community and numerous animal welfare organisations such as the National Geographic Society as a Welfare Supporter and the World Wildlife Foundation as a Partner in Conservation.
