A great place to be with the domesticated elephants so closely. We spent almost three hours indulging in bathing and feeding the elephants. We also took many pics with elephants on our sides. The place can be reached only through boat which are available for Rs 30/person. One will enjoy this place irrespective of one's age.

This is the only place we liked other than the resort in Coorg. We had to cross the river by walk (though we weren't aware and prepared for that, it was good) By the time we reach all shows were over though there was 15mins left as per the time mentioned, but we could click photos and watch elephants close...

Nice place to see and learn about the various life style of elephants. Need to be there early in morning to see them bathing and you are also allowed to feed them.

A very good place for all ages. You will see good number of elephants doing various activities like eating,bathing etc. You can even bath them yourself for a fee. You will not stop clicking photos with them. You can reach this camp via two ways, take boat ride(needs ticket-and waiting is always there) or walk the small lake on your... More

We visited the place with great hopes. But, it is totally unorganised. No clear instructions or timings displayed for boats to reach the camp. Passengers shouting & quarrelling in queue. Don't suggest to visit this place to waste time, money and energy. Timings are too short: 9:00 am to 11:00 am. At 10:00 when we reached no clue about anything.... More

Place was so crowded and you need to stand in queue to reach the Elephant camp on the other side of the river , yes, you need to cross the river to see the elephant camp! Which I liked a lot and river rafting is available if you are one of those adventurous soul.

The Dubare Elephant camp is open from 8:30 AM – 11:00 AM and then 4:30 PM – 5:30 PM. During this time one can view elephants taking bath in the river and being feed. If you can’t visit in this time slot then don’t visit the place. Besides these timings, you can’t see elephants. You can walk down to the... More

Dubare elephant camp is across a river. If there is lot of water there will be boat service to camp. We went there on April last. So not much of water and actually camp is closed. But we can visit there through crossing the river. River is really slippy so be careful when you have babies with you. If you... More

One of our best time was here during our trip to coorg. To reach the camp, there was no path way found and need to walk thro' the river. Kids felt it adventurous and ladies too little worried as they haven't come prepared for wet time. With running water and slippery rocks, ladies were scared too. We managed with support.... More
