About Kampung Gajah
The President of Kampung Gajah is Mr. Jeffry Kurniawan, a young entrepreneur born in Bandung May 1977. Kampung Gajah stands on 58 acres of land and has owned a permit to develop up to 200 acres. This is definitely a big project in my town.
Kampung Gajah first open in October 2009 and it has about eight thousand visitors every weekends.
Fee for each game about 25,000 IDR to 150,000 IDR or $2.5 to $15 I think it's quite expensive for local people. But it's worth trying. You don't have to pay an entrance fee, just pay for the parking ticket about 2,000 IDR or $0.2 per hour.
I think this place is great for family recreation, only has to pay much attention about the toilet sanitation, and add more toilets will be an advantage specially in holidays where many people are visiting this place.
