Bali Safari & Marine Park Review

February 17, 2016

This Bali Safari & Marine Park Review is on Feb 2016, on Valentine’s day. It’s such romantic day to spend with family and lovely animals, isn’t it? 🙂

PS: This not sponsored post, and based on our personal opinion

So basically, this Park is located in Gianyar, Bali, around 40 minutes from the Airport by car with no traffic. But they have free shuttle for particular packages. Here’s our review.


Bali Safari & Marine Park Review

  1. Educational
    In every show, they have educational content to present to audience. It is presented in an entertaining ways so kids would love it too! In the Park, kids actually can learn a lot, through playing and fun. They learn about animals behaviour, where animals come from, what animals eat, what is extinction and how to resolve it; they also learn about affection, empathy, how to feed the animals, etc. One of the most important thing is that: they spend quality time with us, the parents, friends and family!
  2. Fun
    Bali Safari & Marine Park is not only about the zoo and animals, but it’s fun! There are 2 entertainments: Fun Zone & Waterpark. Kids can play amusement rides and splash during the hot day! It’s so fun to see Lala passing the suspension bridge nervously, laughing out loud in the Carousel, and I’m sure she’ll gone wild if we play Waterpark too.
  3. Adventurous
    Many attractions are designed in the sense of adventure. Of course, it is in the zoo! Safari Journey to see animals in the wild, or Jungle Cruise to explore the park above water? Your call.


Itinerary, Show, Schedule, and Tips

Let’s Start with Some Tips

  1. You can walk-in, but if possible, avoid Monday as there’s no Bali Agung show on Monday.
  2. No outside food and drinks are allowed, unless baby’s milk or porridge.
  3. In rainy season, make sure you bring small umbrella to save your day in the park. At least you can go to one point to another to avoid wasting time.
  4. If you have Denpasar ID, go on Galungan or Kuningan Day to get 50% discount on local rate for Jungle Hopper package.
  5. With numerous attractions in this park, you might want to come as early as possible to have enough time to enjoy it all. Make sure you have enter the park before 10 AM to enjoy all show.
