Bali Zoo

History

The Bali Zoo opened in 2002 as the island's first and only Balinese-owned zoological park.  It was conceived and developed independently by Mr. Anak Agung Gde Putra on private land in his own village of Singapadu in the Sukawati district of Gianyar.  It was created foremost out of his love for animals followed by a desire to conserve and protect various Indonesian fauna and a wish to provide the public with means to share in this wonderful experience for locals and tourists alike.  All within a well designed space of natural beauty that is also distinctly Balinese.

Mr. Anak Agung Gde Putra began building the zoo in 1996 using his own finances and the project was finally completed in September 2002 after six years.  Despite a major setback after the Bali bomb disaster crippled tourism a month after the zoo opened and with no financial assistance from the Indonesian government, Mr. Anak Agung Gde Putra persevered with his vision and further sought out to raise Bali Zoo up to the level of an international zoological park.

Bali Zoo is not only a place to observe, learn and marvel at exotic fauna, but also engage with them through our safely supervised activities scheduled throughout the day and night. This is all part of our commitment to conservation, research, education and recreation as The Island of The Gods premier zoological park. As part of our incomparable zoo experience, we also have two distinct restaurants serving food from 9am till 6pm. Our grand Elephant View restaurant sits up to 300 for buffet or a la carte Asian fare, is idyllically located in the middle of park and offers a magnificent view of our elephant trail and surrounding tropical gardens, while near the entrance to the zoo is our Okavango Restaurant, named after Botswana's famous delta river valley. This rustically designed two-story restaurant is a perfect place from where to view our African lion den where our family of lions resides as you dine on western cuisine or our selection of delicious desserts.
