Elefantastic Elephant Farm is a unique and inspiring experience that is a must do for anyone visiting India. Elefantastic Elephant Farm is owned and managed by a former Elephant Rider (Mahut), farm focusing on health-care and breeding management for friendly, beautiful and special elephants to produce healthy elephants to live on Earth. /., Although Elefantastic Elephant Farm was only born on 21st February 2012, my family's involvement with our elephants backdate to over 4 generations ago. Before Elefantastic Elephant Farm materialised, I was an elephant rider at amber palace for 9 years, providing riding tours for the many tourists that visited amber palace. Although I enjoyed being an elephant rider at amber palace & met many tourists, I couldn't help wanting something more meaningful, not for me, but for my elephants. Many of the tourists I met were interested in the day to day life of elephants and what I do with them, rather than just wanting an ordinary ride. As I pondered on the possible opportunities, I realized that I wanted to show people a more in depth insight into the lives of my elephants. There are vast misconceptions across India that animals - especially elephants - are very badly mistreated. I decided that I want to prove to people that this is not always the case and take a step forward in eradicating these misconceptions. This decision inspired me to start Elefantastic Elephant Farm, which gives an insight into the daily lives of our elephants. You will see that all of our elephants are well fed, with spacious rooms, attentive vet check ups every week to make sure they're all at the peak of their health, with loving and caring riders.

Our day at Elefantastic has to be one of the most special days ever. We spent our time with Shaku, a 28 year old elephant. First we fed her, stroked her and talked to her for over an hour - an important way to establish trust. We then were taken to the owner's mother's house for a delicious lunch. When... More

We had an absolutely amazing day at Elefantastic. Rahul was very prompt in responding to my emails when booking from the UK. On arrival we were pleased to see the Elephants weren't tied/chained and there was a very relaxed atmosphere. The elephants all seemed happy and healthy and are not overworked as the group sizes are small and therefore the... More

We were so enchanted and impressed by Elefantastic! The owner and his family demonstrate sincere love for the elephants. It is all the more rewarding to know that the animals are treated well and not being exploited. We spent 10 days in India, and the afternoon at Elefantastic was the highest point ...among many high points.

The treatment of the elephants here was first class, and that treatment extended to the guest as well! Great hospitality, you even get to eat at Rahul's mom's house! One of the most memorable paid activities I experienced in India.

We were very impressed with this experience. We were treated to a wonderful lunch and then given plenty of time to acquaint ourselves with our elephants. I served Shampa his lunch of sugarcane for about 30 minutes. We went on a ride and remarked on how well the elephants were treated. Their environment couldnt be better. Thank you to the... More

I cannot rave enough about this place. The care they clearly have for their charges cannot be put into words. And these majestic beasts are so soulful and kind. The people do not accept tips, furthering our impressions that they take their jobs seriously and are not out to make a quick buck at your expense. The lunch was cooked... More

As soon as we arrived at Elefantastic there was a really nice atmosphere - not only were there elephants to see, but other animals around the property, too. As soon as I spotted the elephant that was assigned to us for the day, we were really happy. She was gorgeous, and we loved every moment of time with her -... More

After looking at things to do in Jaipur, as we were there for 3 nights, ELEfantastic drew our interest. It sounded "hokey" but we decided to go for it. We arrived before the crowds and were able to hand feed a female elephant 12 1/2 months pregnant. She had been rescued from a circus and was blind in one eye... More
