Elefantastic Elephant Farm is a unique and inspiring experience that is a must do for anyone visiting India. Elefantastic Elephant Farm is owned and managed by a former Elephant Rider (Mahut), farm focusing on health-care and breeding management for friendly, beautiful and special elephants to produce healthy elephants to live on Earth. /., Although Elefantastic Elephant Farm was only born on 21st February 2012, my family's involvement with our elephants backdate to over 4 generations ago. Before Elefantastic Elephant Farm materialised, I was an elephant rider at amber palace for 9 years, providing riding tours for the many tourists that visited amber palace. Although I enjoyed being an elephant rider at amber palace & met many tourists, I couldn't help wanting something more meaningful, not for me, but for my elephants. Many of the tourists I met were interested in the day to day life of elephants and what I do with them, rather than just wanting an ordinary ride. As I pondered on the possible opportunities, I realized that I wanted to show people a more in depth insight into the lives of my elephants. There are vast misconceptions across India that animals - especially elephants - are very badly mistreated. I decided that I want to prove to people that this is not always the case and take a step forward in eradicating these misconceptions. This decision inspired me to start Elefantastic Elephant Farm, which gives an insight into the daily lives of our elephants. You will see that all of our elephants are well fed, with spacious rooms, attentive vet check ups every week to make sure they're all at the peak of their health, with loving and caring riders.

We enjoyed a professionally run (and patient!) tour of some city highlights, then headed out to the Elefantastic location. We got to spend time just getting to know and feeding elephants, patting them and learning what they like. We then had a saddle-free ride in the sunset, absolutely beautiful, then spent some time painting and petting them (something they loved)... More

Amazing way to spend a day with the elephants! Rahul, the owner, is great and friendly, and he really cares for the elephants. I was looking for an ethical way to interact with elephants, and this is it. Awesome!

Had the absolute pleasure of visiting ELEfantastic today and I could not recommend it any higher. The animals are clearly very well looked after and loved. The hospitality we received was superb form start to finish. The food we had was also amazing and compliments to Rahuls wife and sister for the cooking. A day that we will never forget... More

They look after the elephants very well. Rahul the owner speaks very good English and friendly, happy to answer any questions. Riding the elephants was great fun! Definitely worth paying extra for Elefantastic compared to cheaper alternatives in the area.

We actually went here but they didn't take cards and during the money crisis here we didn't have enough cash. The experience is 4 hours, too long so we asked could we stay for an hour, pay, take some photos. The owner was totally disinterested, or many people there owing to cash problem.

We had the most amazing afternoon, feeding the elephants, painting them (with natural paint!) , giving them water and riding them. We had a tour of their facilities as well as lunch. We were taken very good care of and left feeling like the Elephants were truly cared for which was very important to us.

They were very hospitable and offered us water and soft drinks numerous times. One of the owners, Raul, spoke decent English and was eager to answer our questions. The drive and the tour guide didn't understand English and tried to be helpful, but often misunderstood the question being asked. Riding the elephant was cool. We also got to feed and... More

I am from Mumbai, and this makes me skeptical about the quality of the experience with Indian tourist attractions -- particularly those off the beaten path. This changed my view. We had 2 elephants for our group of 4 -- Rupa and Radha. Both were awesome. It was a humbling experience to be so close and speak to these gentle... More

Is this ethical?

I found this website on Trip advisor and was astonished to see.....elephant painting and elephant bare back rides? What are the policies on animal welfare? How are they cared for?

Many tourists are animal lovers who don't realize that elephant rides and other wildlife attractions can cause harm to the animals

Travel companies around the world profit from some of the cruellest types of wildlife tourist attractions on earth.

Whether it is riding elephants, taking selfies with tigers, or performing dolphin shows, these activities can cause lifelong suffering for wild animals.

Last year Oxford University’s Wildlife Conservation Research Unit (WildCRU) analysed 24 different types of wildlife attractions across the world. They rated them based on welfare and conservation criteria - this information was combined with recent research to identify 10 of the world’s cruellest types of attractions.....number one being elephant rides.

Riding elephants

In order to make elephants submit to elephant rides and other human interactions, they are taken from their mothers when babies and forced through a horrific training process known as ‘the crush’. It involves physical restraints, inflicting severe pain and withholding food and water. By the time tourist come to ride an elephant, it may look at peace, but this is because it’s spirit has been broken. The bullhook used permanently reminds the animal of human dominance.

The cruelty does not end after the crush. When not performing or used for rides most elephants are kept on chains, unable to socially interact with one another. This is hugely damaging to their physical and psychological wellbeing.

Up to 550,000 wild animals are currently enduring lifetimes of suffering at tourist entertainment venues globally.

Please do not promote animals in tours or as attractions but let's embrace them in their natural habitats.
