  • It was simply a wonderful experience. elephants are not a rare sight. However this experience with Elefantastic was completely original and totally worth the money. This is being run by a honest man with an honest intent to truly look after these elephants, while also giving a personal experience to his visitors. there is no shopfront at this location so don't walk here expecting to find one, you must get in contact to make a booking. There are several companies offering elephant experiences but I chose this one based on reviews.
  • Nice place We make a real effort to provide an enjoyable travel experience, but without compromising on quality service at a good price. As part of our brand persona, we are warm and human, and that resonates with our people and what drives them to embrace it. Thanks to easy-to-maneuver itineraries and a consistent empathy towards guest's requests, our offerings are personalised, authentic, safe, enjoyable and unique; giving visitors coming to India confidence they will have a fantastic time even in their conservative timeline.
  • This was an incredible day at this wonderful sanctuary. We went on an organised tour of Jaipur and then the Elephant experience at the sanctuary. Jaipur is stunning and our guide was extremely knowledgeable and friendly. Our elephant Sampa was such a beautiful creature, we got to feed, paint, was and be washed by her! Unforgettable experience!
  • This entire day was a five start day. We were picked up at our hotel by a tuktuk and taken directly to Elefantastic, where our elephant was getting fed. We were given drinks and told about what the procedure was. The employees spoke really good English. We then got to feed and pet our elephant, a 53 year old lady from a circus, who was as gentle as can be. We were, after some time feeding, given the opportunity to paint our elephant, which we declined, seeing as there was no need. The people there did not push us or anything, which was great. We then walked her over to get some water, and we got to wash her feet and legs, which she enjoyed. Then, we got to go on a long walk with the ol lady, which was fun. She was a slow stroller but a great walking companion. Also, the kids in the area were really nice, as well. After our time with the elephant, we were driven to one of the employees houses and had what was likely our best meal in India, which is saying something. On the way back to our hotel, we asked if we could stop at the fort, which they had no problem doing. We stopped in Jaipur for the very specific reason of visiting Elefantastic, and it was 100% worth it. Many people on the streets told us that it was the most expensive elephant place around, which, to us, meant that they were the best. I was more than willing to pay a premium to know that the elephants get cared for and not worked, and the employees get paid well. If I am back in Jaipur, I would not hesitate to visit again. Also, I kept playing with their dogs.
  • Absolutely incredible, the love and care that is lavished on the elephants is quite extraordinary. The afternoon spent with the elephants was the highlight of my trip to India. Highly recommended, a must visit for all elephant lovers. Thank you Ran up and all the staff.
