  • This was my first time interacting with elephants and it was amazing! Getting to feed them, paint on them and the cleaning them up with a fun shower time was such a nice experience. When you get there you have to choose your elephant and bond with him/her. I got Sampa, the biggest one they have and she was lovely. I went there with a group of friends and we felt very safe throughout the whole experience. I highly recommend you go there if you ever visit India, it is a must! Life changing experience!
  • Wonderful experience and a totally different concept. At Elephantastic you get to be up, close and personal with elephants. Place is owned and managed by a former Mahout. The centre focuses on taking care of rescued elephants. You get to be really close to elephants, you can feed the elephants, colour them with organic colours, then give them bath and finally take them for a walk. They're very docile and intelligent creatures, so don't worry about safety, my one year daughter really loved being close to these gentle giants! The centre doesn't promote elephant rides, so if you're looking for that look somewhere else! Non Alcoholic beverages are provided and a vegetarian meal is included which is to be taken at owners place. Some people may find it pricey but if you are a nature enthusiast and want to give your children authentic experience, this is the place to go!
  • Elephantastic was absolutely amazing! We travelled around North and South India and went here on our last full day. It was the highlight of the whole holiday. We could tell that our elephant was happy and well looked after.
  • We visited Elefantastic a few days ago and I was by far our most memorable experience in India so far. It was an great way to get up so close and personal with an incredible animal in an environment that they are loved and taken care of properly. We stayed for 3 hrs and got our own elephant to interact with. We fed her, painted her with organic chalk paint, scrubbed her and went for a walk with her around their awesome sanctuary. After we were taken to the owners family home and served a delicious home cooked lunch. This experience is well worth the price and I recommend it to anyone visiting Jaipur! We are so grateful to this amazing family for our experience and for giving these gorgeous elephants a new and happy life.
  • My three friends and I spend an incredible day with Samba, a charming, gentle elephant. We had the opportunity to feed, paint, wash and walk her during our visit. The people who ran Elefantastic were gracious, knowledgeable, and patient. We also enjoyed a delicious lunch prepared by the mother of the owner in her home while we were there. I have always loved elephants and this adventure didn't disappoint. I highly recommend that you enjoy this unforgettable experience!!!!!
