“Must visit in India”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 1, 2014

It’s certainly Ele-FUN! Pardon the pun. A fun place to enjoy and commune with the elephants, Elefun provides a nice opportunity to spend time with the animals. They do rides by groups and so far there were no incidents that challenged our safety. Nevertheless, it pays to be vigilant, especially in an unfamiliar country. Overall the experience was great.

“Funday at elefun with Jaipur tour”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 9, 2014

Me and my 6 friends had a great time in Jaipur, spending our day with the elephants at Elefun, our day was started from the pick up facility from the hotel in the morning because we also wanted to see Amber Fort. Push (crew member) picked us up and explained all about Jaipur and about the Fort and hidden treasure Pana Mina kunda(I'm not sure about the name how to spell it exactly) later on finishing the sight seen, we had a fine lunch at Elefun's farm.
After wards the best part started,the activities with the elephants.Its hard to express the feelings in words but i think its quite important to let everyone know about my little great experience.
First we got introduced with the elephants naming Basaanti, Roopa and Rangamala.
Push gave us an interesting facts and information about the elephants,which was very useful for us knowing the elephants better,the elephants were very calm and nice and loved a lot to be get fed by us, we also had a great fun painting on them with the natural vegetable colors, which are good for their and for our skin.Later on we took them into the pool and cleaned them with a brush and they were feeling very calm and happy,Push also told us that elephants are very good swimmers.later on after finishing the cleaning part we took a ride on them which was so much fun and mounting on them in Indian traditional style,once it was strange for me but the elephants are trained that way from hundreds of years in India.In the end we finished by feeding the elephants.
It was a great time already, but Push told us that we are going for clay pottery as well which was a nice activity as well and we enjoyed that too.

To all i would highly recommend to have a great experience in India at Elefun.
Looking forward to be back soon.

“Just ok”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 30, 2013

We were group if 5 families with 10 kids only 6 decided to go ahead
Kids got on top of elephant and took a 15 min ride,then they fed elephant bananas after that they painted them and than cleaned the paint away.
To pay 3k for these few activities I think is too much

We were lucky that we were only people there so was more personal. Lovely experience and the staff were very friendly and helpful.

We were bit disappointed at the place as it was just an enclosure with 2 elephants and not natural at all.
Very informative and a great experience overall.
