Bali Bird Walk in Ubud

Birdwatching Tours in Bali

Bali Bird Walk offers fun birdwatching tours around the lush countryside of Ubud. It is easily one of the most well-established operators on the island offering tours of its kind. Set up by ornithologist Victor Mason in 1990, who is well-known for his books on exotic birds and butterflies in Bali, the walk takes you on a day out through some of the highland area’s most beautiful nature trails. The insightful walks are great for adults and kids alike, and carry a mission of ‘conservation through education’.

Various walks are available, which include a 5km (approximately 3.5-hour) ramble through the Ubud environs, as well as tours to far-flung regions all over the island, such as the mangrove forests on Bali’s south, the highlands of Mount Batukaru (with lunch stops at the scenic Jatiluwih rice terraces), and the forested lakesides of central Bali, with a stopover at the botanical gardens of Bedugul. Through any Bali Bird Walk trail, you will get to learn about the diverse variety of tropical birds in the area.

Consider yourself lucky if you get to spot over a dozen species from the hundreds known. Endemic Bali bird species include the Java kingfisher, the bar-winged prinia, Java sparrow, scarlet-headed flowerpecker, the yellow-vented bulbul, a variety of egrets, and many other tropical birds with dazzling plumage. The butterflies are also a highlight, such as the Helena birdwing, the banded common sailer, and red lacewings fluttering among the foliage. You’ll also come across exotic trees, medicinal plants and wildflowers.

The prices for the guided walks start from USD 47, which includes lunch. Walks normally take up to four hours and, for birdwatching trails around the Ubud environs alone, are held every Tuesday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday. The starting point is at Murni's Warung on Jalan Campuhan, several minutes from the centre of Ubud.
