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.

This experience really felt like we were joining the elephants in their daily routine. It did not feel like they were there for the purpose of entertaining us, but like we were all there together enjoying the experience and each other's company which is so nice to see. Rahul has extensive knowledge of his elephants and really cares about them... More

The biggest concern in our minds before we got there was the welfare of the elephants. As soon as we got there our minds were at ease. He treated the elephants like his children which was refreshing to see as most animals in India weren't treated so nicely. We got to spend as much time as we wanted on each... More

We spent yesterday afternoon with Rahul, his elephants and handlers. The day was hands down our best in India so far - we found the experience relaxing, hassle free and genuine. All of the reviews speak for themselves & I won't reiterate what they've said, just go!! You will absolutely feel you have had your money's worth and more importantly... More

Very kind and gently people in this place. Very good service. Elephants are well treated... paints are natural so produce no harm to elephants. Beautiful experiences interacting with the animals. Please go and enjoy.

Yes the elefants are beeing treated very good here. But also the people who organise the tours. The tours are way way way to overpriced wich makes you wonder who is benefitting the most. My quess it's not the elefants. Riding the elefants is nice but the surrounding is very disapointing. I would not recomend this place to anyone. The... More

A few friends of mine and myself visited this place, and I highly recommend it! The most amazing thing is that they treat their elephants with such care and humanity, they never use physical pain to prompt the animals. We truly got the chance to visit and get to know these animals as fellow creatures on this earth. Feeding and... More

I've always had a love of elephants, and I dream to meet some in real life. A lot of these elephant 'sanctuaries' treat their animals very badly, so I've always been reluctant to go. Elephantastic was amazing!! The elephants seemed very happy, and very well looked after. We were even able to feed them bananas from the local market, as... More

Raul and his team have customer service down to a tee. From the moment we were collected from our hotel, the excellent lunch, to the attention to us all throughout the service was outstanding. And that wasn't even the best bit....... Getting up close to an elephant is not something I've ever done before, they are such gentle intelligent animals... More

We had a great time meeting all the elephants. The guests are able to spend more time with one elephant and really bond with them. We really enjoyed bonding with our ele-friend. It was beautiful to see the clear affection bond that the elephants have with each other, and their human trainers. All the elephants seemed very happy, the farm... More
