The Kings of West Bali
Bali Reptile Rescue is an amazing non-profit organization that rescues and rehabilitates snakes all over Bali. With their habitats being developed, snakes often end up in peoples homes and gardens. Unfortunately because of lack of education and fear, this usually ends badly for the snakes. Residents in Bali can call Bali Reptile Rescue any time, day or night, to remove the snake from their home safely and with minimal stress to the animal. They also take snakes to schools and hotels to educate students and staff which snakes are dangerous and which are not, as well as teaching the best way to deal with snake bites. One of the ways Bali Reptile Rescue raise money for their operating costs is to take visitors on snake tours, mostly in West Bali where there are still large wild populations of some amazing creatures, like the star of the show, King Cobras. These tours are not for the faint hearted and often include trekking through jungle at night, so if you are easily spooked or worried about getting your hands dirty this isn't the adventure for you. You'll be taught how to handle the snakes safely and can even kiss a king if you're brave enough! Contact Bali Reptile Rescue to find out when they are next taking a tour group.
