The Journey

On the 30th of October, adventurers will hop aboard a fleet of 50 Gujarati Chagdas, Royal Enfield motorcycles, and Vintage Jeeps for a weeklong, 500km journey across Rajasthan, India. When racing groups of two to three individuals arrive in Jaipur on 5th November, they’ll attend an exclusive preview of Elephant Parade India, a public art event showcasing 101 beautifully painted elephant sculptures that symbolise the 101 wildlife corridors, Elephant Family plans to create throughout India.

By day, they’ll buzz past ornate palaces and desert dunes; each night, racers will rest their weary heads at unique locations, from a floating palace to luxury tented camps. To commemorate the last leg of their journey, adventurers will come together to celebrate with an epic desert party.

“Travels to my Elephant is an insane, magical, crazy adventure. When I travelled to meet Tara in 1997 it was my very own magical mystery tour and one of the great moments of my life. What a be-fitting way to celebrate a man who did so much for these animals!”
