Owner description: 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.

Our family (4 kids ages 8-17) love going to Elefantastic. We have been to other elephant experience attractions in Thailand and Cambodia but nothing compares to this. Here our children formed a good bond with the animals. They learned the proper way to care for and treat the animals. The host, Rahul, does a wonderful job ensuring everyone is engaged... More

Very good experience starting from pick up until drop off back at the hotel. Lovely time feeding, talking, painting and riding the elephants. Beware the imitations. These elephants are well cared for and enjoy the company of the guests.

We had a great experience at Elefantastic. Rahul was there to greet us and explain to us how the elephants were cared for. My two boys loved the chance to feed an elephant and care for her for the day. Rahul also treated us to a wonderful home cooked meal which his mother and wife kindly served us. We had... More

We primarily came to Jaipur for a weekend from Delhi in order to go to Elefantastic and it didn’t disappoint. Happy to pick us up from our hostel which was the other side of Jaipur, we were greeted by a number of... More

When I started planning our trip through the Golden Triangle, I found this place right here on Tripadvisor. It sounded to me like a once in a lifetime experience and we instantly booked an afternoon at Elefantastic. There is nothing negative I can say about the whole experience, Rahul and his staff were friendly and very welcoming. My boyfriend was... More

Amazing care is taken with every aspect of the experience, from how the guests are treated to how the elephants are treated. Courtesy, service from start to finish - from the owner to the elephant riders to the rest of the staff. A great program including feeding, riding, watering and bonding with the elephants. We even had a delicious lunch... More
