There probably isn’t anywhere else quite like Dera Amer. Here you’ll discover that you’re sharing your luxury, tailor-made holiday to India with a herd of elephants. Not to mention a few camels and a family of sacred cows. But it is, of course, the elephants that command the most attention.

At Dera Amer Wilderness Camp you’ll be able to ride elephants into the forest and watch them frolic in their pool at bath time. You can go on elephant safaris into the Nahargarh National Park in search of leopards and caracal, follow elephant trails and learn all about these gentle giants.
