We were a little unsure about whether we should go on this trip, but "when in India...", and are very glad we did. We were not entirely sure what to expect. Warmly greeted, as it was sunset/dusk, we climbed the elephant steps and began our journey on Mochti as the sun set and darkness fell. It was a journey just... More

Went for dinner with Explore India tour group. Rode elephants for about an hour. Had buffet dinner with typical Rajastan entertainment - flame acrobat, dancers balancing pots on their heads. Funny old band leader blarring on a tuneless horn. Too much smoke from kerosene lamps used to light the stage. Suggest using an electric light.

Our review maybe a little harsh because we were expecting something very different. In essence its an elephant ride around a farm followed by lunch. Didn't float our boat at all. we were under the impression it was a trek through villages etc. It was not that! we stayed an extra day in Jaipur for this and in our opinion... More

This is such a lovely place and we enjoyed our 20 minute amble through the countryside on our elephant. I could see that all the elephants were well cared for, unlike some tourist attractions. We had a splendid lunch afterwards. Thoroughly enjoyed our visit.

After a couple of hectic days India my girlfriend and I checked in at Dera Amer and boy was it worth it. It was such a well needed rest from the chaotic big cities. We had booked the full package. When we got to ride an elephant, feed, wash, and paint her. She was really calm and you could get... More

Perfect for our children who are 3, 6 and 8 years old. I searched over the internet for a really unique experience for us as a family and Dera Amer do it very well. On a setting of 180 acres it's a India that everyone should see. You get to feed the elephant, pat and wash and paint so very... More

Sometimes there are events in life that make you sit back and say, “Gee, am I ever blessed.” For me, being at Dera Amer was one of those experiences. We were told that the owner, Udaijit Singh, is an organic farmer who is taking the elephants and camels from the city to live in a more natural setting. It was... More

We went to Dera Amer as my daughter wanted to see elephants. It was very important to us to choose somewhere that had high welfare standards as we've heard so many horror stories. Dera Amer arranges for you to be collected from your hotel and you are driven up past the Amber Fort into the peaceful hills above Jaipur. We... More

If you're into elephant rides, a stop at Dera Amer is a must: animals seem to be treated a lot better than at the nearby Fort and other touristy places, there are a lot less people around and ultimately the ride is both fun and enjoyable, away from it all. Well, sort of. At the end of the day it... More

What a spectacular way to spend a beautiful sunset? Riding a well cared for and loved elephant through the Indian jungle. Our mahout was lovely. He chatted away pointing out the wildlife. After the ride we had a buffet dinner which included traditional Indian food. The lawns were so free and cool. Such a relaxing evening, a real out of... More
