After reading all the reviews I expected so much more of a real elephant experience. I did get to touch, scrub and fee the elephant. The bathing consisted of squirting a hose on the elephants face and trunk. The feeding is giving them 4 bananas. Perhaps I am a bit jaded after spending on safari in Africa. The ride was... More

Not a far drive outside of Jaipur. Suddenly you are in some country side away from noise and pollution. A ride on an elephant with its handler, that is a bit touristy but lovely just the same. Not very many people at a time so quiet. Then a lovely Indian lunch. Very good, and service was good. Host is very... More

I have often admired the beauty of Aravali Ranges from the highway connecting Jaipur to Delhi wondering what lies beyond. On a friend's recommendation, I went to Dera Amer (just off the highway) with a couple of friends. We went there for breakfast on a cold winter morning but ended up staying there for lunch as well, just admiring the... More

This is an amazing place surrounded by the Aravali hill, the Elephant Ride though the forest area is an experience of a life time. Udaijit the owner has his own charisma.

One of my favorite days in Jaipur was spent at Dera Amer. Tucked away in the foothills of the mountains outside Jaipur, this beautiful private sanctuary is one of the city's best well kept secrets. We initially planned to go for just a couple hours but ended up spending the entire day here! The grounds are gorgeous and so well... More

Situated right in the valley of the Aravali Hills, Dera Amer is the place to be in to experience Rajasthani Royalty. A well planned entertaining camp for elephant safari. Friendly and safe safari's with full service. Imagine you are enjoying sipping your favourite wine on the top of the elephant back taking a ride through the forest with the hills... More

We had gone in the night to the dear Aamer... Welcomed by the elephants. A nice game of elephant polo.. Enjoyable. We had buffet dinner .. Very tasty and fresh food... Also before that the procession by the elephants, camels and the band. Over all enjoyable experience. But the road , if you call that a road, is full of... More

Traipsing through fields of cowdung and dry vegetation is a waste of time. it might possibly be better during sunrise, when at least there will be birdsong. the restaurant food is actually quite wonderful, though.

We are sorry to learn that the guest did not have an enjoyable ride,maybe the guest or the guide accompanying the guest requested for a short ride on our route 1 which as compared to the other tracks has less foliage,however the abundance of fauna and flaura can be confirmed by the reviewers before. We have converted our 300 acre... More

We were on a one day trip from Delhi and are so pleased to have taken the time to visit the Village. All the staff were warm and welcoming, taking time to tell us all about how they look after their elephants and ensure their well-being.. We helped our new lady friend "Gophali" to munch her way through a pile... More

The resort is in the outskirts of Amer. Entrance is not so appealing. They served drinks & snacks on arrival. After that Elephant Polo match was played by guests. That was really a good entertainment. The band presentation was also good. The food served by them was fresh, hygienic & tasty. Though service was not matching. Advice to Dera Amer:... More
