He is not playing with our elephants.

The correct answer is "Er spielt nicht mit unseren Elefanten." Can I put the "nicht" at the end?

No, that's not possible. The only other possibility where you could put the 'nicht' in this sentence is right at the beginning 'Nicht er spielt mit unseren Elefanten. But this changes the meaning to 'It's not him who plays with our elephants'
