    Fantastic 4 day trip to Udaipur - the Venice of India!
    What a wonderful personal trip to Udaipur my friend and I have just had - organised by Elefun. We had a 4 day extension trip to Udaipur with Aftab - and I cannot speak highly enough of his organisation, attention to detail, local knowledge- and his company. We had a glorious few days in Udaipur. We visited beautiful monuments, ate lovely local food and had a driver at our disposal. Next time we will definitely need to visit his elephant sanctuary. Thank you!

    Absolutely delightful!
    Elefun was an excellent experience. Aftab welcomed us and explained how he and his team take such outstanding care of these elephants. We were then introduced to Kulfi who was an absolute delight. We spent an afternoon with Kulfi, feeding her, painting her, and walking with her. If you love elephants, do not miss this unique experience in Jaipur. 100% recommend!

    Awesome a dream come true
    Elefun is an amazing Experience suitable for all ages. Staff are very friendly. The elephants are friendly and calm can get up really close to them. Learnt a lot about elephants on my trip to Elefun. I was firstly scared when riding on the elephants but the staff was very helpful and made me feel relaxed after some time I was fine. I really enjoyed my time at Elefun would definitely recommend anyone to go to Elefun. You can feed the elephants ride them paint them with vegetable paint and shower with them! The painting experience is definitely cool 👌

    Awesome interaction with an elephant!
    It was a unique and thrilling experience with the sweet female elephant named Shabbo. It was our interaction ever with an elephant so close that we communicate, touch,feed ,paint and wash it. The elephant is very friendly and well trained and mahouts takes a great care of it. I could never imagine that I could have a bareback ride in nature but yes all could be possible in Elefun. This was an unforgettable experience and we cherished every bit of it!

    Amazing
    Fantastic experience. The teams goes beyond to make the experience as personalized as possible. Elephants seem to be taken care with care and love. They provide the story behind the town, the elephants and their behaviors. Would definitely recommend this to all.

    Great way to get really close to elephants!
    I had no idea there were many ethical issues around elephants, but I learned a lot from the owner Afteb about how they care for ex-circus elephants, or those that cannot be released into the wild because they’re too domesticated. It’s great to see the elephants are free to roam the sanctuary and have a massive lake to bathe in. I felt the elephants (and other animals) were cared for here. I got to get up close, feed Shabbo with sugar cane, and ride her bareback around the sanctuary. So relaxing and peaceful. I’d like to come back and spend more time with the elephants.

    Best elephant shower.

    Great time
    I had a really great time here! I was offered drinks and had a driver pick me up and drop me off! Beautiful Rangoli seemed very happy and was so gentle, the staff were very knowledgable and informative and cared deeply for the animals. I was able to find out about her and they are providing updates as I had asked! Thankyou :)

If you are visiting India, then Elefun is a MUST experience. As a solo traveller, I was a little apprehensive but everyone is so welcoming and accommodating. The staff are very knowledgeable and really care about their elephants. The whole ethos of Elefun, is their welfare and welbeing. After hearing about the work they do and about your elephant, you are introduced to them through feeding. This way you form a unique bond. You can ride the elephant but I chose to walk with mine. They love being painted, which was a first for me and a real bonus. Drinks and lunch was provided with my package. I totally recommend this experience and hope to return again. Thankyou Aftab for a time I will never forget ♥

This experience was great from start to finish! A driver picked us from our hotel and drop us off. We got to spend the afternoon with Laddu, which was such an amazing experience we got to feed her, take her on a walk and hangout with her and her friends. You can tell the elephants here are well cared for and that both the owner and the staff take great pride in caring for these beautiful animals. This was a dream come true for me and I would reccomend Elefun to everyone! I will definitely be coming back! Oh and an added bonus they had an adorable puppy! Thank you so much for the great experience.

When you are not visiting this place you are absolutely robbing yourself of one of the most amazing experiences of a lifetime. We had the most wonderful day here. The caretakers know their animals very well and they make you feel comfortable around these incredible animals. Visiting this place was the highlight of our trip to Jaipur and I would really recommend visiting this place to anyone!

We had a great experience. Communication was easy to coordinate transportation and when we would be there.
Meeting the elephants was really special and I especially enjoyed feeding and walking with them and learning more. We had a lot of questions that were all answered graciously.

It was a lovely afternoon, the elephant we met for a couple of hours was called Shabu and she was very gentle. As it was cold we didn't bathe her as it would have made her sick, but we fed her, painted her and went for a walk. The owner was quite keen for us to go shopping and did mention it a number of times, we didn't want to go as a) we were marketed out, b) my partner was poorly and it just wasn't a good idea. After we made it clear it wasn't happening he didn't push it further (which was good as other people had been far more pushy elsewhere). Elephants seemed well taken care of.

The best day ever at @elefun.in 🐘💚
A rehab and rehabilitation centre to 15 elephants 🌳
This is Laddu, she was rescued from the circus at 7 years old, she is now 28 and living her best life 🩷
She roams free around the sanctuary and is never tied up for visitors…🧍🏼‍♀️
First we fed her grass and sugar cane, followed by giving her a massage with a coloured bamboo stick and organic vegetable oil which also creates colour.
We then roamed with her around the sanctuary forest where they will slowly follow you with no encouragement and stop for cuddles and food along the way 🐘🚶🏼‍♀️
This was really special as it gives you an experience of being in the wild with an elephant. 🩷🐘
Elephants are not ridden at @elefun.in instead they are encouraged to walk around to improve their digestive systems after eating 🍃🐘
An amazing experience I will never forget along with my dad @rpc_71x ❤️
