They are gentle giants for sure and... More

I truly felt like I experienced India on this safari!!! We absolutely LOVED this experience. The animals were treated very well which is unusual for this kind of event. The staff was helpful, informative, and honest. They did everything possible to make this as enjoyable as possible. We were told that they do only a few rides a day and... More

We booked this excursion at the last minute because we were let down a couple of days before we left the uk. How pleased we were that our previous booking was cancelled. We were welcomed into the park by the elephants and their mahouts. The staff couldn't do enough for us. We set off and were welcomed at the end... More

I am very concerned about the way animals are treated and elephants are of great concern in India. Seeing the poor elephants taking people up to the fort in Jaipur was quite upsetting and I would urge people to NOT USE THESE RIDES as they are cruel to the animals. The Dera Amer safari has a small number of rescued... More

Loved this place! The grounds are so lovely and the staff friendly. There were three elephants available for rides. They appeared to be well cared for and the rides are brief. We were treated to lunch out of doors and it was some of the best food we had in India! The food is local and organic and delicious. Our... More

I have always wanted to touch and get up close to these wonderful creatures and here my dream came true. Rungmallah our 32 year old female elephant was everything I imagined - kind and gentle. As I got up close and stroked and hugged her trunk she looked at me with her tiny but kind eyes. The ride through the... More

We chose Dera Amer, because the elephants and other animals are well looked after and respected. My 2 sons and I had a brilliant time visiting Dera Amer, feeding, stroking and getting to know the elephants and the camel. We then went for a leisurely ride around the farm, before sitting down to a great lunch. All the staff were... More

The man picked us up from our hotel on time, and we travelled to the elephant sanctuary, the ride in the back of the jeep was awful the ride was far to hard played hell with my back. On arrival we were meet by a guy who spoke perfect English and told us all about the elephants, especially our one... More

A delightful secluded place with a elephant ride for all through a jungle. Children will enjoy painting the elephant Lakshmi. A beautiful girl with a wonderful temperament. They will also enjoy feeding them bananas. The property has a lovely restaraunt and also wash rooms. They can arrange picnics in a jungle setting where you can see wild pigs, monkeys, blue... More

We were a little unsure about whether we should go on this trip, but "when in India...", and are very glad we did. We were not entirely sure what to expect. Warmly greeted, as it was sunset/dusk, we climbed the elephant steps and began our journey on Mochti as the sun set and darkness fell. It was a journey just... More
