A long dirt road brings you to this manicured haven where 5 elephants were in a shaded spot with their minders enjoying their lunch. We were the only visitors there and had a delicious lunch with champagne in an open air tent ably waited on by 3 staff. It felt like a scene out of a film! We then set... More

If you are visiting the spot then Amer Elephant Safari is must. Too popular among the international tourists. Huge fleet of elephants is available which caters to the needs of visitors. Enjoy the ride.

A place you must visit when you are in Jaipur. A wonderful welcoming in a lovely created place surrounded by wonderful nature. The food is excellent and the people caring and friendly. The place offers every kind of options, a romantic dinner, fun times with friends or an adventurous day with kids!! highly recommended!!

Unlike the City Palace, no elephant is forced to climb a steep incline which is hard on their feet and in a very hot area. Dera Amer Elephants walk in the natural habitat and are well cared for as compared to those at the City Palace.

What an amazing experience. We booked the sunset tour as part of our honeymoon, and were not disappointed. We were immediately greeted by the host (whose name escapes me now-- I am so sorry!) who introduced us to our elephant and let us interact with her. We enjoyed tea in the impeccable dining area before heading out. We had arrived... More

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
