About Our Services (Fun with Elephant)
Elefanjoy is one of a kind Asiatic elephant wildlife sanctuary in Jaipur where you can dive deep into the lives of these majestic animals to have an experience of a lifetime. At Elefanjoy, we want to make people aware of these animals’ habitats and learn more about them in a fun and interactive way. At our sanctuary, you can interact with elephants, feed them, paint with them, and give them a fun shower!
At Elefanjoy, we have created a haven for Asiatic elephants. Here, you can get up close and personal with these beautiful creatures we rescued from abusive and negligent living conditions. All our proceeds go to the welfare of these animals. At Elefanjoy, you can enjoy being close to nature and uplift your spirits by spending time with these gentle giants.
During your day’s reprieve at Elefanjoy, you can help us care for the elephants and, simultaneously, have a fun vacation with your friends and family.
Things to do at Elefanjoy
Let's start with trunk shakes! (Meeting with elephants)
Once you reach the sanctuary, our caretakers will be there to greet you and take you to meet elephants. The feeling you get when you see these gentle giants is mesmerizing, and one can never get used to it. If you feel the jitters when going near our elephants, don’t worry. Our staff will explain the right way to befriend these beautiful animals.
You can know them individually by name, pet their trunks, and feel humbled by their magnificence.
Showcase your creativity with elephant painting!
Rajasthan is known for its vibrant culture and traditions, and art is a big part of it. How can we let you leave without experiencing a bit of that grandeur? That’s why next on the list is to have fun with our elephants by painting them. You can go all in and create a riot of colors, shapes, and designs on our elephants. Make them picture-perfect for your photographs! Worried about the paint and the toxic chemicals in the colors that can hurt the elephants? We were too! That’s why we only use eco-friendly colors made with natural plant-based dyes for our elephant painting activities. The brush is also designed with bamboo sticks, so the elephants are not harmed. (Paint your heart out!)
It's chow time!
Feeding elephants is the best way to get close to an elephant’s heart. They love bananas, sugarcane, bamboo leaves, and tree bark. Feed them with your hands to see how happy they are to be fed. We will guide you through the feeding process before handing out treats.
A humble request: Please don’t bring any food with you to feed our elephants. At Elepfanjoy, we provide all our elephants’ food for feeding sessions. You can let us know any unique treats you want to feed, and we can arrange them for you.
Time for some splish-splash!
Elephants love water and mud baths, and the summers of Jaipur make bathing an ideal activity for both you and the elephants. Get on to the back of our elephants for a thrilling water spray from their trunks, scrub, and pet them for a fantastic bathing experience with elephants. Or watch an elephant enjoy the water during hot summers. (Bathing is not possible during winters.)
Time for a stroll! (Walk with elephants)
After the fun bathing session, you can enjoy a stroll with our elephants in the sanctuary. The peace and serenity you feel in the presence of these animals in the middle of nature can relax you and fill you with soul-filling joy.
We don’t promote elephant back riding to our guests as it can harm our elephant’s back and spine in the long term when they carry people on buggies on their backs.
Elefanjoy was started with a dream to protect and provide for elephants in negligent and abusive conditions by Mr. Ankit Pareek. Ankit is a certified Yoga practitioner and trainer who has spent his childhood with the elephants in Jaipur. He has won several Gold medals in state competitions. As he grew up, he realized the need for a safe space for these majestic beings on earth who are treated cruelly.
That’s how, in 2012, he founded Elefanjoy and spent all his time building the best wildlife elephant sanctuary in India for Asiatic elephants. Since then, Elefanjoy has been caring for these animals and striving to make people more aware of their conservation. Ankit takes his morning and evening Yoga sessions these days and spends the rest of his free time caring for these elephants now.
We have about 20 elephants at Elefanjoy from all across the country who need a safe abode. Through Elefanjoy, we try to provide and care for these animals in the best way possible.
