Hello, my name is Shinta and I'm the director of Bali Reptile Rescue
We are a nonprofit that provides free snake removal and reptile education services in Bali, all proceeds from our tours go towards protecting and rescuing these snakes from being killed by people and releasing them back into the jungles. Come join me on one of my reptile tours and prepare for an unforgettable adventure.
There is only a very small group of us but we have over 60 years between us experience in saving reptiles and other wildlife. That experience lets us know exactly how to make the best wildlife related tours...

King cobra and other snakes trekking
It was a great experience! Immediatly after first search we found a Javan spitting cobra.
In the evening we continued and found serveral snakes like blue krait, bronzeback, reticulated python, white-banded wolfsnake and white lipped island pitviper. But the absolute highlight of the trekking was to come in contact with a big 12 feet long king next day!
A whirlwind of a trip. If you're a snake lover and in Bali don't miss it. Be ready to go with the flow because there isn't a solid schedule and Peter doesn't really tell you all his plans. You'll learn a lot about snakes, Bali and any other wildlife you're interested in.

This 2 day search for King Cobras was one of the most exciting wildlife experiences I have encountered anywhere. The knowledge shown by Shinta was only equalled by her absolute passion for all reptiles.
Shinta and her team were absolutely amazing at finding snakes. On our night search we saw more than 20 Painted Bronzebacks, several Indo-Chinese Rat snakes, Dog-toothed Cat snake and, best of all, 2 fantastic Lesser Sundas Green Pit Vipers.
The following morning we had up close encounters with Reticulated Python and Spitting Cobra but the most fantastic part of our trip was spending 30 minutes with a King Cobra-what an experience!!
Should you have any desire to see/photograph some of Bali's amazing reptiles, you should seriously consider a trip with Shinta organised through Go Voyagin.
