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. « less

Elephantastic was a wonderful experience! We spent about 8 hours with an amazing 25 year old elephant named Shaku. Raul and the other people there made sure we were comfortable and then gave us space to bond with Shaku. We were able to feed her (twice), paint her, bathe her, and ride her. It was truly perfection!

Elefantastic is just that -- FANTASTIC! Booking it was very easy online with Rahul's timely replies. Once we got there, we immediately felt welcome and you could see the love Rahul and his team have for the elephants. They are treated so well! We asked tons of questions and learned a great deal about the animals by interacting with them.... More

The elephant experience with Rahul and his team, gave us a first hand opportunity to witness elephants from so close. Rahul is a kind soul who really is an animal lover and we did not see any abuse of these wonderful and loving creatures

Not only are the elephants incredible but the people who live breath and care for them are the happiest and most welcoming of people. You felt safe and taken care of, which allowed you to really enjoy the experience of holding, touching and feeling the elephants which are beautiful. There was no issues with safety and the elephants are cool... More

We booked this experienced based on Trip Advisor reviews, and I can confidently say that it more than exceeded our high expectations! Having the ability to eat, ride, paint, and bathe "your own" elephant over an afternoon is absolutely spectacular, as the elephants are warm, engaging, and excited to interact with people. Rahul and his team truly love and care... More

I was skeptical at first since me and my friend were traveling on a budget it was a lot of money but I can honestly say it was worth it. Just by looking and the health of these elephants and their care you can see where the money goes. The whole experience felt very personal and special I honestly would... More

It was an amazing experience. Rahul was very friendly and his mom is very accommodating. She cooked meal for us. The elephant is super big but very safe. There are so many other company out there for an elephant ride but Elefantastic is the best and takes good care of the elephant.

My husband and I took a quick trip to Jaipur in April. I had always wanted to get up close and personal with elephants. After reading the reviews on Tripadvisor, we decided Elefantastic was a must-do. I am so glad we did! You can tell Rahul loves these elephants. They are well taken care of. "Our" elephant was 35 years... More
