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.

Absolutely love this place. It had to of been the best day we had in India! The elephants are so well looked after, and the people who looked after them are amazing. So friendly, helpful and caring. They always ensured that we were comfortable, well hydrated and of course safe. Highly recommend this to people of all ages.

We wanted to spend a day with elephants but we also wanted to make sure that the elephants were HAPPY, well looked after, and not exploited. That's what you get with Elephantastic - and an in Rahoul, an owner who is hands on, constantly present, and speaks fluent english. There's a great atmosphere about the place, and you get right...

We loved spending half a day with one elephant and her carer. We fed her and watched her drink from a hose, rode her in a rural setting for 45 minutes, fed her again, decorated her by painting her trunk and legs which she seemed to enjoy and did lots of patting. Our elephant was very calm and accepting of... More

We booked a trip with elephantastic and that's exactly what it was. We were picked up on time and taken to the sanctuary. The elephant we had was called chanchal. My son loved feeding, painting and riding her. He still remembers her. The lunch provided was very good as well. I would highly recommend this trip to anyone visiting jaipur... More

Great place! The tons of great review definitely can't be wrong! They really care for their elephants and I don't mind paying a bit extra to make sure they have enough water and shade. Good job

My partner and I were looking for something to do for our last full day in Jaipur. 'Elefantastic' came up as the no1 attraction. No1 it certainly is!. After arranging for us to be picked up from our hotel, Rahul (CEO of Elefantastic) greeted us warmly not only by his calm nature, but with delicious chai. We had a relaxed... More

We came across Elefantastic late at night whilst looking for attractions in Jaipur, having emailed Rahul at about midnight we were extremely impressed to wake to a very sincere and thought out reply from him inviting us down and by midday we were in the Tuktuk with the lovely Mo, having being picked up directly from our hotel.

Elefantastic was incredible! The driver was on time to pick us up at our hotel, drove safely and we arrived to have chai while settling in and meeting our personal elephant Chandra. Rahul was always available to answer questions and checked in with us constantly as we were feeding Chandra to make sure we were having a great time. Feeding,... More
