    Unique family experience with Payal the elephant
    Meeting Payal the elephant at Elfanjoy elephant sanctuary was truly a unique experience with my family. Our sanctuary guide, Ankit, shared that he volunteers his service to this sanctuary where former circus elephants are well taken care of. During our experience, we were allowed ample time to meet and personally interact with Payal under the expert and caring supervision of her Mahout. Feeding, hugging and walking Payal were definitely a highlight for my children! Would definitely recommend this experience where contributions made for the experience go towards the operation of the sanctuary which is doing a stellar job for these wonderful elephants. We look forward to doing this again sometime in the future and we’re sure Payal will remember us.

    Wonderful experience in Jaypur!
    We had a wonderful experience in the Elefanjoy Elephant Sanctuary! My children an I spent a great afternoon with an elephant called „Mala“. At the beginning we were very shy to approach her, at the end we were all giving her hugs and kisses and it was sad to say good bye. In this elephant sanctuary it‘s not only about spending time with the elephants, it‘s more about showing them respect, care and love. You can feed them, hug them, paint the with organic colors, wash them and have a walk or ride them. We preferred to walk with Mala. 🐘☀️ In this preservation sanctuary are doing a great job to save and preserve the elephants and you can see it. We highly recommend the experience at the Elefanjoy elephant sanctuary, because you have a great happiness feeling after and at the same time you are helping to preserve these wonderful animals. My kids and myself really enjoyed the afternoon-evening with 🐘 „Mala“.🪷

    Visiting Elefanjoy is a must!
    This was the highlight of our trip to India! Apart from the excitement of feeding, walking and bathing the elephant (Maria <3) we also learned about ethical ways of interacting with them. It is obvious from what we saw that the sanctuary really cares about the animals and their safety and educating the visitors about it. My teen daughter said that she enjoyed hugging the elephant and being so close to it. Because our visit was 3h long we didn't have to rush and had the opportunity to enjoy every moment. We would encourage everyone to opt for a walk with the elephant rather than a ride as it is better for them but is just as if not more entertaining! The staff was extremely nice and helpful. Visiting Elefanjoy is a must!

    A beautiful experience India 23
    Elefanjoy was an incredible experience. The elephants were absolutely stunning and the staff take great care of the elephants as well as myself during the visit. Everything was extremely transparent, there was no pressure and I got to spend so much time with the elephant doing activities such as washing the elephants, cuddling the elephant, feeding the elephants and painting with a nice walk. It was very nice that there was a story behind each elephant and they educated me about elephants. I felt extremely well looked after and was even more impressed that the elephants were also.

    Magical experience
    Ankit was a great host. We were pleased to see the elephants care so well, walked, fed and watered. We could painted on Mala with natural colours, washed and fed her. We walked her and its was magical. Ankit is promoting a compassionate approach to elephants, discouraging from endless backbreaking rides, instead promoting walks which seem fairer. Mala was our elephant, 28 years old, a rescue from South India.

    Wonderful time!
    I had the best day with Ankit and the Elephants. We were able to interact with them closely and give them lots of love. That added to the amazing customer service makes me recommend this experience to everyone who wants an amazing Jaipur experience. Thank you!

    Incredible, so kind and compassionate
    Elefunjoy was the most incredible experience. The whole trip was transparent from booking. They were evidently kind to their elephants and you can really see they care about their work and show true compassion in their love for the elephants I can’t recommend this experience enough. They tailored to our needs and wishes and provided us guidance and support throughout our visit. It was really important to me that we visited a place that showed empathy towards their animals and show their care towards ethics. We spent a long time getting to know the elephants and I was able to build a relationship with them. I can’t thank them enough for all they do for elephants and human kindness

    Why hug a tree when you can hug an elephant!
    Whilst doing a 3 day Golden Circle tour our guide asked us if we would like to visit an elephant sanctuary. Absolutely! Our visit to Elefanjoy turned out to be the highlight of our trip to India. Here, we got to spend time with beautiful Ladoo, who had been rescued from a circus. We hugged her, fed her, painted her, walked with her and told her how beautiful she is. She seemed to enjoy the attention and we certainly enjoyed giving it to her. The love and care Ankit and the team at Elefanjoy give their elephants is evident in everything they do and the money they earn is used to care for the elephants. This is such a special place. Please visit if you can.

    A magic experience
    Taj Mahal and Amber Palace were awesome and the main reason for my visit to this part of India. But my time at the elephant sanctuary was one of my favourite experiences. Spending time one on one with these beautiful and graceful animals in a tranquil and peaceful setting was magic. I would highly recommend the place as well as Ankit and his staff who were all delightful.

    Morning with an elephant
    A great experience. Guide prepared the booking online. Pick up and drop. Honest, friendly guide who was not focused on getting us to agree to extras. Elephant (Mala) well cared for. We got to interact, feed, paint and stroll around with her. Guide gave a good introduction talk and helped us understand more to do with their work. We all had a lovely morning there. Photos to keep!

A special and thought provoking experience with Muskin, a gentle 35 year old elephant, rescued from a circus.
Being so close to this majestic creature was an absolute privilege.
The special bond between her and her human carer is clearly evident. The facilities are clean and I felt this was an ethical experience.
In the ideal world, she would be roaming free but that is not possible due to past human interference in her life, so this place is definitely her next best option. Kindness, care, good food, exercise with the short elephant walks and a lake for swimming. And a bit of fun squirting the tourists with water!! (Optional)
Highly recommend this experience in Jaipur

The tourguide did amazing job telling about the places we visited and making sure the trip is exactly how we want it. He made it super convenient with the timings, pickup and tips how to make the best of our 1 day in Jaipur. The elephant sanctuary is a strong position on the tour and they are taking very good care of the animals. In June the weather was pretty hot but still doable. A/C in the car and shades were enough to let us through the day.

My sister and I visited the Elefanjoy Sanctuary in May and we had an amazing time meeting Mala, the elephant. Ankit very helpfully showed us around and the whole tour was super educational. Elefanjoy is a true heaven for elephants, providing them with a safe and caring place. It was the absolute highlight of our Jaipur stay and I would highly recommend visiting it!

It was an amazing experience. I spent time with Sobha, fed her, and took her for a walk. I loved every minute. The staff were professional and helpful, explaining about the sanctuary and its future plans. I highly recommend it to everyone.

We spent an hour at Elephanjoy Elephant Sanctuary with a sweet rescue elephant called Mala. The man who looks after her is clearly very fond of her. She looked very relaxed and happy and very carefully cared for.
It was a great experience to interact with such a beautiful and well cared for animal in a respectful way
I would highly recommend this very ethical and caring sanctuary if you would like to have an experience with elephants.

Really pretty elephants and well cared for, this sanctuary offers a captivating experience. From the moment you step in, the ambiance exudes tranquility and respect for these magnificent creatures. The elephants roam freely in spacious enclosures, showcasing their natural beauty and grace. The staff's dedication to their welfare is evident in every interaction, ensuring a safe and nurturing environment. Educational programs deepen the appreciation for these gentle giants, fostering a connection between visitors and the elephants. The grounds are impeccably maintained, enhancing the overall experience. Truly a sanctuary where conservation meets compassion, leaving a lasting impression on all who visit.

This is a disgrace - the day was hot - 45 degrees -
"why aren't the elephants swimming in the lake?"
"It's too difficult"
This is about making money and not about animal welfare - going here is wrong.
