Turning Holidays into Adventures since 1989

Mason Adventures, formerly Bali Adventure Tours, is the island’s longest-established and critically-acclaimed adventure tour operator. We are proud to showcase our unrivalled world class adventures through a multitude of interactive tours, facilities and excursions that our family owns and operates.

We believe you pay for what you get, and we ensure all of our guests the complete premium experience from the moment they’re picked up until the moment they’re dropped off back at their hotel or villa.

From the humble beginnings of Yanie’s Restaurant in 1985, we went on to pioneer Bali’s first White Water Rafting operation in 1989 then added Mountain Cycling and Tropical Trekking in 1991, followed in 1997 by the opening of Bali’s first elephant rescue facility, the Mason Elephant Park, and in 2009 its luxurious 5-Star Lodge. 2015 marked the re-launching of Mason Sky Tours, offering guests a wide range of high-class helicopter tours and services. In recent years, we have revamped the rafting aspect of our business with the opening of the multifunctional Mason Adventure Centre, a multi-million-dollar investment providing our guests with a 5-Star rafting experience from start to finish. 2017 saw the launching of Mason Jungle Buggies, Bali’s newest and most exciting off-road challenge, as well as Mason Gourmet Chocolate, the archipelago’s most unique chocolate experience.

All tours and services are tied together by our own fleet of radio and GPS controlled buses, and in the case of any serious medical emergency, all guests are covered by our exclusive Free Helicopter Medivac Service. Our friendly and professional staff are the best in the industry, and as Bali’s safest, most efficient and eco-friendly adventure company, you can always count on us to provide you with an unforgettable experience.

Mason Elephant Park

Initiated in 1997 and set within the misty hinterlands of Ubud, the Mason Elephant Park was created in response to the devastating situation in Sumatra where rampant deforestation and poaching has dwindled the native elephant population.As a result, over the years the vast majority of what remains of the wild population which aren’t killed off are placed within concentration camps where they receive poor and insufficient nourishment, no proper medical care and treatment, and consequently the average life expectancy is typically 3 – 8 years. It is estimated that by the year 2025, that the Sumatran elephant will be completely extinct in the wild.

Our mission over the years to save as many of these gentle giants as we couldhas been a test to our commitment and determination, encompassing multiple journeys over land and sea, spanning thousands of kilometres, battling bureaucracy, the elements, terrorist aftermath’s and monetary adversities, to provide these critically-endangered creatures a comfortable and safe environment to call home.

Our multi-award winning park is Bali’s only dedicated elephant rescue facility, and is now the home to 32beautiful Sumatran elephants, 5 of which were born here naturally. The park provides guests with the rare opportunity to interact and learn about these gentle giants to help ensure that their species can continue to live on for many generations to come.

The park is set within 4 hectares and has been carefully landscaped to mimic the original habitat of our elephant’s native home in Sumatra. The location in central Bali was also chosen for its cooler climate and lush environment, which helps to keep our elephants cool and comfortable in this tranquil landscape.Since the beginning,we have never used, nor condoned brutal or cruel training methods, as all training at our park is by repetition, reward and patience, and we firmly believe the relationship between an elephant and their mahout must always be one of friendship and trust.

Mason Elephant Lodge

Renowned as one of the most unique hotels in the world, and the World Luxury Hotel Awards 2018 Winner for Best Luxury Lodge in Asia and Best Luxury Eco Safari Lodge in the World. The Mason Elephant Lodge is committed to providing guests with a once in a lifetime experience amongst Bali’s largest herd of rescued Sumatran elephants.

Nigel Mason

Born and educated in England, Nigel Mason spent some his early years in Egypt. Bitten early by the adventure bug, the 15-year-old left England in 1959 with the “Big Brother Boys Movement” to work on a farm in Victoria, Australia.

For the next four years, he travelled Australia, cutting timber and sugar cane, picking fruit, hunting kangaroos, and helping construct the Sydney-Melbourne standard gauge railway line. He learned to enjoy scuba diving and snow skiing in his spare time, as well as playing classical guitar.

In the late 60’s Nigel moved into sales, which saw him later join the recording music industry for a few exciting years, rubbing shoulders with world famous EMI Label artists – including The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, Chubby Checker and Roy Orbison. After this he launched his own ‘bottled garden terrarium’ business and later a landscaping operation but later returned to music in 1976, this time in retail with the large Brash’s chain of music stores where he managed the Prahran store. In 1980 he finally decided to give up the ‘rat race’ and flew off to Bali with a couple of old hippie mates and was quickly captivated by the island and decided to stay. He survived by doing small exports to Australia before meeting his future wife, Yanie in 1983.

Since arriving in Bali, Nigel has established numerous business enterprises, his first being Yanie’s Restaurant. He later built the first White Water Rafting operation in 1989 and added other adventure activities as he went along, including his own transport company. The Elephant Safari Park and helicopter sky tours were other additions to his stable of companies both being firsts for Bali.

Outside business operations, Nigel is well known for his outspokenness, and ‘fight for right’ attitude, and for his Harley Davidson. He spends leisure hours with his wife and two sons, often working together in his ‘Mangrove Project’, planting saplings to conserve eroding wetlands. Over the past ten years, the Masons have planted over 100,000 mangrove trees behind their Pesanggaran Head Office and re-established the area to its former state and ecosystem. However, government project has destroyed the hectares of the mangroves that the Masons planted, destroying 10 years of hard work in a matter of weeks. Nigel’s work with elephants has led to his appointment as an advisor and consultant to ‘Flora and Fauna International’ and gained him many admirers throughout the world including the late Steve Irwin.

Yanie Mason

Made Karyani “Yanie” Mason was born and raised in Legian village, one of seven children in her family. She spent her childhood in a very different Legian and Kuta than we see today, long before electricity, roads or tourists. In fact, she didn’t own her first pair of rubber thongs until she was 11 years old. In those days, life was quite a struggle for the average family and Yanie learned to be tough. With an inquisitive mind, she was always questioning things that she saw around her.

When tourists began to trickle into the village, Yanie learned to supplement the family income by selling anything possible to tourists, be it a flower she’d picked from someone’s garden or soft drinks on the beach. In fact, the first English phrase she remembers learning was: “Hallo, you want cold drink?”

Yanie was a straight-A student, always at the top of her class, especially in English. She was the first girl from Legian to enter university, where she was still studying when she met her future husband, Nigel. While studying, she was the general manager’s secretary at the then-newly opened Intan Cottages Hotel.

Yanie is probably best known for the famous “Yanie’s Restaurant & Bar”. But, she also is known as a woman who stands up against injustice and whom has fought for recognition as who she is and what she believes in. She has become recognized as one of Bali’s top businesswomen, while managing to mix a happy family life and raise two sons in a blended Balinese-Western culture. Yanie has gained respect among the Balinese and the expatriate communities, both of which have watched her climb the ladder of success over the past 20 years.

In her leisure hours, Yanie enjoys gardening, Balinese and modern dance, and badminton on the family court. An example of Yanie’s continued community involvement; she is an active member of numerous charity and other organizations in Bali, as well as being a member of Bali’s Tourism Board.

Jian & Shan Mason

Nigel and Yanie’s two sons were born and raised in Bali, where they spent much of their tropical childhood playing among mangrove swamps, beaches, construction sites, motocross tracks and jungles. In the early 2000’s they both left the island to attend boarding school and university in Melbourne, Australia.

In recent years they returned to Bali and joined the company, and have since been learning and taking part among the many facets of the ever-expanding Mason Adventures to help carry the family name into the future, bringing new ideas to accommodate an ever-evolving tourist marketplace.
