Not worth visiting in March
Mar 2021 • Family
This was our second trip to Dubare and it left us little disappointed. We reached around 4:30pm, the place was crowded. The boats/rafts are not working for water being low so we crossed it on foot. You have to leave your shoes before stepping into the river or carry shoes in hands with you. If you leave shoes at the entry then you have to walk barefoot in the elephant camp. You cannot feed the elephants now because of covid. The whole place seemed bit dull compared to my pre covid times visit.

Lovely place to spend with family

Loved the time spent playing in cauvery waters, boating, elephant sighting. The place is easily accessible and has a car parking right at the river shore. There are a few eateries and shop available as well if you are hungry or looking to shop.

Amazing place to get close to the Pachyderms while holidaying at Coorg
Feb 2021
Visited during our Coorg holiday during daytrip by cab covering the attractions around Kushal nagar area like Dubare Camp+Chickihole Reserve+Bylakuppe Monastry Complex+Nisargadham. Allot approx 2 hours for this attraction. We crossed the Cauvery river by carefully negotiating the rocks & the soft currents. Be careful as some of them are wobbly & some are slippery. Those who cannot take this adventurous route can take a boat ride to cross over to the island. Activities include Elephant bathing, rides, feeding etc. Soft river rafting is also available at Rs 200 per head bt this isn't interesting as no rapids are involved. Surely a must see destination while in Coorg.

Not just for kids, a great experience for us adults too
Nov 2020
So many elephants, nice to see them roam about free and most of the animals were not chained but under strict vision of the mahouts. They were being bathed with care, fed to lengths and so much being nurtured for their medical needs. A must visit for kids.

Must visit in if you are in coorg
Dec 2020 • Couples
We visited this during dec month end and it was amazing experience. Elephant camp is on other side of river and you need to cross by boat. Waiting line for boat was lengthier and if water levels are low you can enjoy crossing river by walk. No leeches or any other bugs bother you. Water is pretty clean and we enjoyed crossing it by walk. Best time to visit this is around 4 pm. 5:30 pm Dubare camp closes and you may miss elephants. Elephants are well fed and maintained. Due to covid we missed chance to feed elephants and need to watch from distance.

To reach the elephant camp, we need to take a ferry boat. The camp and the elephants are very well maintained. We hoped to have an elephant ride, but due to covid 'no rides'.. We did see the elephants bathe and feed though

OK for selfies
Feb 2020
Elephants are kept in a concrete yard, OK for selfies but not much else. Crossing the river on foot is OK if you're young and fit. Boats don't operate in the dry season.

The beauty of the place is the access route
Feb 2020
I believe the elephants are kept in a island, the access is either via boat or you walk to the place by crossing the river on foot. I highly recommend crossing the river on foot atleast 1 way; ofcourse if the weather permits. We went there in the month of feb and the river depth was just upto ankle length 80% of the time. Please do note that the river crossing by foot is rocky and slippery, please be very careful. My dad who is 60 yrs old was able to do it at a leisurely pace.

The camp has some 25+ elephants including few baby elephants, initially its a bit scary being among so many behemoths as they are not chained !!
If you be there before 1030 you get to bathe the elephants, dont miss this. Its chargeable at 100/head. There was this instance where the person handling the elephant made it spray water and that scared the hell out us. This is a nice photo opportunity as not a lot of people pay.
