I was having a gala time at the Royal city, Jaipur. The very history and culture of the Pink City holds the aroma of royalty and its rich historic and cultural Heritage depicts the same. After visiting a number of gems that this city holds including the beautiful palaces, Havelis, Rajput forts and a lot more I visited the exotic ecological park named Elefantastic. If you are planning a trip to Jaipur, Elefantastic is one of the must visit locations for you.
This ecological park lies in the deep jungles located on the peaceful hilltops on the outskirts of the city. This vast and beautiful farm land is renowned for being a natural dwelling ground for elephants. Elephants are considered the royal carriers in the pages of Indian history. The Elefantastic farm offers regal elephant rides to its visitors. Situated in a small but elegant town at a distance of nearly one kilometer from the Amber palace this farm is one of the most preferred tourist attraction of Rajasthan.
This extraordinary site offers shelter to twenty four elephants out of which twenty three are females and they as a family with just one male elephant which is the pride of this eco – park. It is indeed an amazing experience to visit the city of palaces on the back of an enormous mammal. As one enters the farm he is given a warm welcome by the extremely courteous team of Elefantastic. Even the elephants are well tamed and are quite friendly. The timings for the elephant safari starts from the golden hour and ends after dusk.
Before the visitors ride the elephants, the Elefantastic team prepares their royal ride by washing the mammals and feeding them with food and water. The premise of Elefantastic also cherishes a vast collection and gallery to elephant decorations. The traditional way of decorating elephants incorporated lots of designs and colors which is a fascination for the visitors. A tourist guide who is generally the elephant rides accompanies visitor al through the ride. The entire area of Elefantastic is full of wild animals and it is a truly thrilling experience to watch them from such height.
