Bali: Full-Day Bird Watching Experience

1. Bali: Full-Day Bird Watching Experience

Start your morning walk through the Ubud Rice Terrace, which is famous for white-plumed herons and Java pond herons, making it a bird watching hot-spot. You will observe numerous bird species, and perhaps some rarities as well. Following that, continue the tour to visit the Begawan Foundation which is famous for its Bali Starling Conservation. It was established in 1999 with the aim of saving this precious bird from the very real threat of extinction. Bali bird watching is not completed without visiting Goa Lawah, also known as the Bali Bat Cave Temple. This cave is believed to have been created sometime around 1007 by an Indonesian saint, the ancient temple structures built around the cave entrance are still ministered to and provided with prayer on a daily basis. While the site had no name when the temple was built, it gets its current title due to the thousands of bats that cling to the ceiling and walls of the natural chasm. Leverage and customize your experience with add-ons from add-on listings: coffee tasting to traditional massage. (some add-ons are only available for some options).

Yogi was an excellent guide with a great knowledge of Bali. This is really an ecotour to visit some great sites as opposed to a bird watching tour. Serious birdwatchers would be disappointed but if you’re interested in wildlife and efforts to conserve it this is a great tour for you. I strongly recommend renaming it as I’m sure more people would book. The tour also started at 10 from ubud so we finished at dusk. Enjoyed the bat cave temple and watching the small, flying foxes with their babies & all the adults arguing. The Bali starling centre was brilliant. There were only 15 of these beautiful birds left in the wild when the project was started. Annie and Annika showed me around the captive breeding & release sites & talked about the community involvement in the project. It was very inspiring. After a stop at the rice fields we finished at a village that has thousands of egrets roosting overnight. Watching them all coming into land in the trees was amazing & the village protect

Thanks to my guide "Yogibearwithnohair" I had a great time. Even though the weather was not in my favour with heavy downpours, my guide kept looking around and driving me to other places with no rain. I managed to catch some birds during this trip and at the same time, he is quite knowledgeable about the culture and history of Bali and managed to answer all my questions that I threw at him. Overall, I do find my guide very service oriented and knoweldgable. Thanks a lot for assigning him to me.

The driver and guide Ade was excellent. Tour went longer than scheduled, which was good as I was having a great time. This didn't phase Ade and he made sure I was having a great experience. Bagawan foundation was amazing and the beautiful Bali Starlings. Would do again.

Dharma was cheerful, and happy and very knowledgeable about the area. Although I saw 8 lifers , he himself struggled with the birds English names. He more than made up for it with all the enthusiasm and unexpected surprises that he gave us along the way.
