Always try to bring some fruits to these animals and when you offer them... you will feel that love and emotion with them.

Enjoy!!!

Feb 2020 • Couples
I was worried when i first heard about elephant activities in jaipur because there are so many places providing elephant experience packages our driver also told us to go some place which he knew but as many people told me that it's all about getting commission so i chose not to go with him we contacted elephant joy and since the first email jameel was very helpful we arrived at his place next day and he is just amazing you can call him a elephant whisperer cause he knows everything about this great animal and they also have veterinarian facilities to
make sure all the elephants are healthy we enjoyed every activity which was provided by them
Make sure you go to elephant joy because there are lots of places as i said to rip you off

" first time with elephants.
Feb 2020 • Couples
Elephant joy was amazing! The service from the moment very nice people immediately came to help and explain all about the elephants which have been kept very well and all round and amazing experience thank you to Jamil and the team Jamil and the staff take care of the animals with love and they make you feel that same love. Really outstanding especially for kids. practical advice. if necessary they pick you up from hotel in Jaipur (included in this price). Overall you should definitely come here while in Jaipur! Avoid the elephants at the Amer Fort and do this instead. Total i loved my time in Jaipur at elephant joy and looking forward to be back. Highly recommended everyone to elephant joy!!!!

"Absolutely amazing bay"
Feb 2020 • Friends
Enjoyed a lot here. i never thought that going to elephant sanctuary could be so awe inspiring. There are 5 elephants if getting close to elephant without any detriment to their health, elephant joy is the place to be. The care for the elephants was beautiful to see! The staff was so friendly and the beautiful elephants looked well cared for. Our driver Rafik was very nice this experience memorable and we shall never forget.

Disappointing
Jan 2020 • Couples
I contacted Elephant Joy from the website and they were very happy to book us a place. On the day we were in a different location due to the main farm being closed. They did as best as they could considering the circumstances but it did feel a little bit cramped in this new location. The host was very apologetic but it did disappoint slightly after spending a long time looking forward to this. The elephants were chained up around the neck and were strapped by their feet to the wall, not what we expected. In addition to this the elephants didn’t have much space to live, it concerned us greatly.

The driver was really good and he took us to the Amber Fort afterwards.

All in all, it would be worth the 3000 rupees if you are taken to the bigger farm! If not, then it would be better to look for a company with more space for the elephants.

You’ve got to do this.

This was one of the highlights of our trip. We met Rupa.
I had emailed the farm a couple times to schedule and confirm pickup date and sure enough, there was our driver at 12pm on the dot. He took us from our hotel in Jaipur to the farm outside old Jaipur. We spent around three hours there just feeding, petting, painting, walking, and learning about Rupa and Elephant Joy. Totally worth the rupees. It was winter time so we didn’t wash her but it was still an amazing experience. We had other encounters with elephants on this trip but this was the absolute best. The elephants have the best lives here. Please go.
