The Inspiration

 Mark Shand’s best-selling book Travels On My Elephant, is the inspiration behind us all.

The Elephants

The world’s largest land animal is becoming homeless. Elephant Family and our inspired team supporters are full of solutions.

Travels to my Elephant is back.

First held in 2015, the epic journey across India will shine a multi-coloured spotlight on the plight of Asian elephants while raising much-needed funds for Indian elephant corridors. In 2015, racers traveled by rickshaw acrosss Madhya Pradesh, but this year’s adventurers will trek 500 kilometers, from Jodhpur to Jaipur, aboard Gujarati Chagdas, Royal Enfield motorbikes, and vintage jeeps. When they arrive in Jaipur, they will enjoy a private preview of Elephant Parade India, a public art event showcasing 101 beautifully painted elephant sculptures adorning the city of Mumbai that symbolise the 101 wildlife corridors Elephant family plans to create throughout India.
