Elefantastic In Jaipur.

Let’s Get The Ball Rolling, Shall We? 

At the crack of dawn, you wake to the mellifluous trumpets of the gentle giant. As you go up to the door, you are greeted a Good Morning by your EleFriend; its adorable brown eyes ask you to be its partner-in-mischief. 

Your joy just by reading this must know no bounds, eh? 

Well, at EleFantastic, this is a regular day. 

India has a concord kinship with these gentle giants. India homes around 50 to 60% of Asia’s wild elephants and about 20% of the domesticated elephants. Safe to say, our country is of pristine significance for the species’ survival. 

An India without these tuskers is inconceivable! 

Elephants are strongly associated with religious and cultural heritage, vital in Indian history, traditions, and royal legacy. From the Magadha dynasty in the 6th century BCE to Mahabharata, these huge beasts have perpetually been seen to champion warfare, diurnal lives, and auspicious occasions. They remain revered today. 

What an incredible legacy! 

On the hind side, the elephants in India have been facing issues like habitat loss and human-elephant conflict. Concern for the treatment of these creatures gave birth to Elefantastic Sanctuary in 2012.
