No other luxury accommodation in Bali can give you the privilege to watch wildlife unfold as the sun rises in the background. Guests also have the liberty to feed the animals in the vicinity of their rooms, unlike no other activities in Bali.
Read on to see which incredible animals you’ll personally meet during your stay at Mara River Safari Lodge.



These African-natives are closely related to horses and donkeys, in fact they are in the same genus. Their most prominent feature is the bold patterns on their coats. They are thought to have white coats with black or brown stripes, however, zebras have black skin under their white coats! The zebra’s stripe patterns are not unlike human fingerprints – no two are alike. These stripes are believed to work like camouflage and may work as a natural sunscreen.

Most zebras are led by a stallion and live in family groups with several mares and offspring. Facial expressions, such as wide-open eyes or bared teeth, are an example of how zebras communicate. They can also bark, snort, or huff to each other. A typical zebra diet includes grass, leaves, and twigs.


Rhinos are one of the Big Five in Africa. We’re sure you’re familiar with rhinos. They are large herbivores with one or two sharp horns on the head and thick gray skin. We love these animals because despite looking aggressive and dangerous. You can meet and see them up close when you stay at Mara River. You may be lucky enough to also spot some elephants, and more!
