The Elephant ride up to the fort in jaipur is very touristy and hot whereas the elephant experience at Dera Amer was great! My boyfriend and I went to the beautiful indian estate where it is held and had a perfect night painting and riding the elephants through the wilderness (stopping at an old temple and offered beers along the...

My friend Paramjeet took me to Dera Amer. It seemed that we are going to end in some village after about 20 minutes of offroad drive into woods outskirts of Jaipur. When we reached we were spellbound because of the beauty of the place - smalll green lush place with nice small buildings around. It was an awesome experience from... More

What a great experience! We came here as a group of 6 with my four teenage children. We played Elephant Polo and had a delicious meal. The host was very welcoming and his staff were very accomodating. What a crazy wonderful opportunity. If you have the opportunity, and want to ride on an elephant...do it here rather than at the...

In the afternoon, we drove out of Jaipur to Dera Amer to undertake a late afternoon safari with dinner. After aquainting ourselves with the elephants (feeding them bananas), we "boarded" these magnificient animals for our trek through the bush. I will admit, not the most comfortable of rides (even a camel is better). We slowly venture along trails ... going... More

When we arrived at Dera Amer we were greeted by an elephant who we got to feed bananas right out of our hands. Although the safari was uneventful in terms of wildlife spotting (other than monkeys) we enjoyed the peace and tranquility of our sunset ride. Dinner afterwards around the bonfire with the tasty local produce was an unexpected treat.... More

Our travel planner, India Beat Travel, recommended that we complete the Elephant Safari at Dera Amer. We loved it! We had time to interact with "our" elephant, feed her bananas, take pictures, etc before and after the safari ride. This was a good experience and I would recommend it to other travelers as well. If you're looking for an excellent... More

After a long day of touring we ended our day with going to Dera Amer. The road to get there is a little rough but it literally feels like an oasis once you get to the property. The food was EXCELLENT. Loved that it was from farm to table (i believe everything but the meat). Elephant ride was a once... More

We were booked for the elephant safari and dinner by our tour organiser and I was a but sceptical on how it would be - but I should not have been at all concerned. Jaipur is a busy bustling city but we were driven through the city and into the countryside to reach Dera Amer and this journey was worth... More
