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 visited here after the Amber Fort so we had seen the elephants at work. Elefantastic takes retired elephants and gives them a good home. We chose not to paint or ride the elephants, which you can do, we spent time feeding one, scratching behind...More

We were told the elephants here were all rescued, non working elephants. The facilities we saw were cramped. The elephants we fed were chained and the keepers kept tapping them with sticks, and the owner lied saying they were all sanctuary elephants. We stayed late...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
