Yes, you will see wildlife in Bali. Indonesia’s unique island ecosystem supports the world’s third highest level of biodiversity. It is also part of the Coral Triangle hosting the world’s largest area of marine biodiversity.
What type of wildlife you see depends on where you go and the time of year. Bali is a birdwatching paradise. 280 species of bird frequent the island, including the endangered Bali Starling. There are two different species of monkey - the grey macaques and the Javan langur. Grey macaques can be found in Ubud’s Monkey Forest Sanctuary, at Uluwatu Temple, and West Bali National Park. The park hosts a great variety of wildlife on land and sea.
Bali is home to many species of lizards and snakes. You will certainly encounter small, harmless geckos or tokays wherever you go. Snakes are less commonly seen and include big animals like pythons and king cobras.
The oceans around Bali are brimming with lively coral reefs filled with colorful fish, turtles, manta rays, reef sharks, and other marine life.
If you don’t have time to explore, there are wildlife parks such as Bali Bird Park, Rimba Reptile Park, or Elephant Safari Park.
