Elephant Joy, Jaipur

4.2
#5 of 37 in Parks in Jaipur
At Elephant Joy, spend a day bonding with magnificent gentle giants that enjoy human company. After the first contact with the animal--that involves trunk stroking, soft speaking, and eye gazing--you will get to feed your elephant, take him or her for a walk or a ride, paint the "moving canvas" with some herbal colors, and finally give it a bath. This heartwarming experience in a working elephant village owned by a sixth-generation of mahouts (elephant riders) includes learning a few words of elephant language.

  • We spent a good deal of time scouring the internet to work out which elephant places are legit and which are just pachyderm slavery. This place is extremely legit. We were able to interact and feed the elephants as well as paint them. The guys there were extremely helpful and we didn’t feel pressured at all. Absolutely the highlight of my trip. We also briefly sat on the back of the elephant, which is didn’t seem to mind. All in all an amazing experience.
  • Spent a great day with elephants! No reservation needed
  • 👎🏽 Horrible expirience with this people; there are so into money, slavering elephants for ridding and bathing and painting; today I got a headache becouse this man where asking me 100$ for showering an elephant, 60$ for painting or for giving then food; I thoug it wass an abuse; this place should work with donations and not like they where objects of auction ; this animals don't need any human for anything and they have so many elephants workings in rides already; this place is a scum; after getting of my seat and wall away to my car, the guy started to lower the prices to 20$, at that time I realice I don't what to do it anyways; and he send a worker to tell me and my boy friend that we have to pay 600 rupees just for entering the place; they never said that in the beginning, my boy friend replays this guy they never told us before and there is no sign of that in anyplace; so we didtn pay and leave. Advice: If you wanna have a expiencie with this wild animals go to a natural reserve and take pictures from the distante; not here this place is slavering animals for money; this should be ilegal .... 👎🏽 👎🏽 👎🏽
