About

Elephants are not native animals of the Rajasthan state and they were brought to this state at the time of the reign of Maharajas. These elephants are provided a separate place that is situated around 30 kilometers from Jaipur suburbs, called Elephant Village. Here are all the Elephants who are available are living with their mahouts and have separate shelters for each of them.

This is more of an experience rather than volunteering for this gentle giant. If you are looking for experience with volunteering to serve this great mammal then you can join our round this round year project. Here you will be helping the mahout (caretaker) in day-to-day activities for the elephant starting from bathing till feeding and cleaning the areas.
