Bali Bird Park (2024) review & expectations

We visited Bali Bird Park as a family outing. We think it’s a great opportunity to have fun and learn at the same time. Bali Bird Park is a vibrant and exciting tropical paradise that’s home to hundreds of different bird species from around the world.

One of the fascinating facts about this park is that it’s divided into seven different regions that replicate the natural habitats of its bird population. This means you’ll get to see the birds in an environment that closely resembles their natural home. It’s like taking a mini tour around the world’s most exotic bird habitats, all within the confines of this beautifully maintained park.

Here’s a little secret: if you’re lucky, you might even get a chance to feed the birds. It’s an experience that’s both thrilling and heartwarming. But remember, always be gentle and respectful towards our feathered friends.

The History of Bali Bird Park

Bali Bird Park, which began in the early 1990s, officially opened its doors in October 1995. This wonderful bird sanctuary was the idea of Edi Swoboda, a German entrepreneur living in Bali.

Initially, the park was home to about 250 bird species. Now, it boasts more than 1,300 birds from over 250 species, making it a colorful and diverse place for bird enthusiasts and conservationists.

The park has evolved significantly over the years. It started as the only bird park in Indonesia and has become one of Bali’s most popular attractions. The park is specially designed with seven distinct areas that mimic the natural environments of the birds.

Bali Bird Park is also known for its conservation efforts. It aims to excel in breeding Birds of Paradise and the Bali Starling. The park is not just a display of birds; it’s landscaped to include a variety of plants, creating a natural setting for the birds. (source: Wikipedia Bali Bird Park)

Any Special birds you can view

Bird SHow

You can see some really special birds in the park. There’s the Lesser Adjutant, Bali Starling, Lesser Bird-of-Paradise, and Salmon-crested Cockatoo. Each one is special in its own way.

The Bali Starling is one bird the park works hard to protect. It used to be common in Bali but almost went extinct because of people taking them, they lost their natural habitat, and other animals that would prey on them. But, thanks to the park and others working hard, there are more Bali Starlings now.

Before I mentioned that there are 7 different parts of the park that imitates the surroundings where the bird is from. My favorite was the bird show and the South America Exhibit! But let’s check out these exhibits.

Fighting Extinction Club

I want to emphasize about the Fighting Extinction Club and bring the following message: practice less plastic!

The Fighting Extinction Club at Bali Bird Park is deeply committed to the recovery and conservation of over 15 bird species and the Komodo Dragon. The program focuses on delivering tangible conservation outcomes through local efforts. As a facilitator of wildlife knowledge, the club aims to drive conservation action and educate its members and the public. I strongly encourage the same information they are conveying: Stop the use of single use plastics. We and a lot of animals will benefit a lot from this.

I want to advocate strongly on Eco tourism in Bali because of the ever-growing popularity of Bali.

Bird Feeding & other activities

feeding birds

One of the best things to do is the feeding sessions. You can feed birds right from your hand, which is a really special experience.

The bird shows are amazing and full of information. They’re not just for show; they really teach you about the birds.

Conservation Efforts and Environmental Impact

The park is also set up to be good for the environment. It has natural areas for the birds, lots of different plants, 52 types of palms, rare fruit trees, and even cactus. There are three lakes where water birds live. The park has 60 places where birds can live that are just like their natural homes.

Bali Bird Park also works with other groups to protect birds. It teams up with the Friends of the National Parks Foundation to help the Bali Starling. The park is part of the Besikalung Wildlife Sanctuary too. This place is a safe spot for birds and animals in the forest near Mt. Batukaru in central Bali.

Is it worth visiting Bali Bird Park?

Definately worth it. It’s great to visit as families. We enjoyed especially bird feeding part as this was exciting for my child. The 4d cinema was a month to rest sit and relax and watch the show! so don’t forget to visit that one.
