A Day with Elephants - Pride of Jaipur
Elephant village in Jaipur is a small community village that was set-up by the local government of Rajasthan in 2010 to provide a proper shelter & water facilities to the families who take care of Elephants along with providing a natural habitat for these giant animals surrounded by the Aravali mountain ranges. If you are an animal lover, this will be the best things to do in Jaipur for you.
Rajasthan being a desert land, is not a natural habitat for Elephant & therefore, Jaipur is the only place in Rajasthan to have Elephants which were brought from the jungles of South India. The most interesting thing about the Elephant village is, the Elephants do not belong to Rajasthan & even the Elephant care takers are not local & instead they belong to an eastern state of India - Bihar.
Elephant village in Jaipur is definitely one of the most interesting places to spend time at. The location of the village which is set-up amidst Aravali Mountains adds to the fun and makes it a bespoke travel opportunity and one of the best things to do in Jaipur that can also be incorporated in your Rajasthan tour packages.
A day with Elephants - with Vedic Walks is a unique and offbeat activity to offer a memorable Elefantastic day to our guests in Jaipur not only by engaging in fun activities with Elephants but also giving it back to the community by spending some time the local community members. It is an Eleday with lots of Elefun.
Even if you do not wish to take an Elephant safari in Jaipur, we recommend you to visit Elephant village in Jaipur and spend quality time praising their beauty. Although, if you missed out Elephat safari at Amer Fort, Elephant village will be an apt place for taking an Elephant safari in the natural surroundings.
