Overview

Elefantastic Elephant Farm is a unique and inspiring experience that is a must do for anyone visiting India. Elefantastic Elephant Farm 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 Elephant Farm was only born on 21st February 2012, my family's involvement with our elephants backdate to over 4 generations ago. Before Elefantastic Elephant Farm 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 Elephant Farm, 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.

We spent about 2 hours at this place - essentially a sanctuary for elephants. The elephants are taken well care of and are free of any shackles which was heartening to note A young female elephant in her mid 20s, Shakku, was earmarked for us....More

On the outskirts of the Pink City, the thing you'll remember most -- if you're anything like us -- might be gray. Rahul and his team have put together something that borders on world-class...while still retaining a lo-fi, no-frills ethos. You'll spend time getting to...More

I booked this as after viewing reviews it appeared that this was a genuine sanctuary and that the elephants were treated better here than other areas. All the Ele..... are the same place and the same elephants and handlers. I don't think that the elephants...More

We thoroughly enjoyed our time with the elephants, they are such gentle creatures and although really huge, we never felt at risk being so close to them. Lunch at Rahul’s mum’s house was delicious and it was very interesting to visit a locals house.

Excellent day feeding / painting / walking the elephants. We were picked up from our Jaipur hotel on time and enjoyed an excellent meal at Rahul's mother's house before our experience with the elephants. Highly recommended!

No advanced booking is required. Go there and you will see the keepers and you will see the elephants as well. Make sure you don’t get ripped off. In Indian foreigners are always charged higher fee than locals but at least... More

The elephants are not ridden per se, but you do ride bareback from a platform to the bathing area which is about 100 yards. I was very pleased with the experience but I do not think they are a rescue organization that only... More
