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.

This was a highlight of our holiday. The guides and mahouts care for these animals so well. A number of these creatures have been rescued. 'Our elephant' had lost the sight in one eye whilst in a circus and ELEFANTASIC were paying for a cataract operation to save the sight of her other eye. We were able to really get... More

We took our three children (ages 10, 8 and 6) to spend the day with the gang at Elefantastic and could not have had a better experience. Rahul and his team were tremendous hosts, and the elephants were well-cared for and loved by the entire staff. While the elephants were the main attraction, we really enjoyed our time with the...

Bit scared as we haven't ride the elephant before. But it was a nice experience. Price for single ride was INR 1100. We felt this was little expensive.

I visited Elefantastic this summer and made the arranges for the visit myself. I was very pleased with how quickly my inquiry was answered and how good of customer service was offered. Everything was included in the experience, from the pick-up and drop-off to the food and drinks. The food was home-cooked and SO delicious! The riders were very kind... More

My girlfriend and I had an incredible day with the elephants. We got to feed, paint, wash and ride the big buggers and were provided with a hearty home cooked meal to boot. The fellas also picked us up from our hotel and dropped us off. Thoroughly recommend!

This place is literally awesome... If you want real feel of how elephant live, if you really want to hang around and bath with them. This is the place.

Elephantastic is quite simply wonderful. We visited in August with our two families and it was without doubt the highlight of our visit to India. Feeding, painting, washing and riding these elephants, who are looked after so well, was an experience we will never forget. Further Elephantastic is also extremely well run, copious amounts of drinks were handed out, v... More
