Description: Experience the Heart of Giving for the Heart of Living at Elefantastic...
Experience the Heart of Giving for the Heart of Living at Elefantastic. Elefantastic is a unique and inspiring experience that is a must do for anyone visiting India. Elefantastic 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 was only born on 21st February 2012, my family's involvement with our elephants backdate to over 4 generations ago. Before Elefantastic 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, 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.

We came as a school trip in Dec. 2014, the owner (?) was very accommodating and even provided us with a delicious lunch from his own home (cost incl.)! We were also given drinks throughout the day and constantly were given antibacterial wash (very clean grounds too). Absolutely loved every minute of it. We painted the elephants, went on a... More

It was a great day, staff were great and the food was great. Bathing the elephants was the best part followed by feeding them. The annoying part was getting there as our taxi driver was not sure where it was and was trying to leave us somwhere else. Plus the place indicated on Google maps is not correct so if... More

Wow! Worth every positive review this place gets. I had organised this independently of our tour. Our tour guide was very concerned about us going and according to the other guests on our tour, fretted all afternoon and during dinner. As I explained to him the next morning, from our driver picking us up at our hotel all the way... More

This was the most enjoyable activity I did during a recent trip to India. I was collected and dropped off from my hotel by their driver Jaanu who was very friendly. It was a very hot day and cold drinks were served throughout my time at the sanctuary. I would suggest allowing 3-4hours at the sanctuary. I spent 3.5 hours... More

We had a wonderful afternoon at Elefantastic when we visited Jaipur in October 2014. The facility was clean and the elephants were extremely healthy and well-cared for. The caretaker for the elephant with which we interacted spoke English well and was able to tell us some great personal stories about caring for her. Overall, we enjoyed our visit very much!

This is a must on your visit to Jaipur...we were a family of 6 with 3 teenagers!!! We had the best time from introducing ourselves to the elephants while feeding them to painting, riding and then giving them a bath, I dont know who enjoyed the bath more the elephants or us. The entire experience is one we will never... More

Spending time with the gorgeous elephants at Elefantastic was an amazing, memorable experience. Our 14 year old son loved it - especially getting on the elephant's back to wash her. Rahul and the team were so helpful in explaining about the elephant's care and needs. A sunset walk with the elephants followed by a delicious dinner at Rahul's mother's house... More

I read about this in the guide books and trip advisor and was floored that it was the top pick of activity in Jaipur...after experiencing it myself, I must agree whole heartedly! I had a fantastic time at this well run establishment that allows you to really have the full experience. We even got the lucky chance to dine in... More

We had SUCH a lovely time at Elefantastic. It was one of the highlights of our trip. The owner and staff seemed to genuinely love the elephants and the lunch at Rahul's mother's house was a delicious way to end the experience. It was incredible being so close to the elephants, all of whom seemed in a good condition and... More
