Dubare Elephant Camp - Review
A project undertaken by both, the Forest Department of India and Jungle Lodges and Resorts Ltd., the Dubare Elephant Camp is a must visit while on your vacation in Coorg. Home to many elephants, visitors can observe, feed and ride elephants at this camp. A trained Naturalist is present on the premises who explains the various aspects of Elephants- their history, ecology and biology. Trivia- The elephants for the Mysore Dasara used to be trained here. However, after the operations were ceased, these elephants now provide entertainment for the visitors. The officials fondly call these elephants ‘retired ones’.
Apart from the elephant watching, one can also go on hiking trails.
The Dubare Elephant Camp provides day packages (includes elephant rides, lunch, snacks, guided hiking etc.) as well as lodging.

Dubare Elephant Camp, Madikeri Reviews
Fun starts right from the pathway to the Dubare Elephant Camp. We need to walk about a Kilometer and then cross a river with slow flowing water by Walk. The River bed has rocks and some of them are slippery too, and it's a fun experience to cross the river. On the other side of the river there are more than 40 Elephants including baby elephants. It's a Delight to see so many elephants in one place. Kids can have fun riding the elephant and giving bath to them. It's a vast area with trees bearing colorful flowers. Had fun visiting this place. Enjoy !!!
Awesome place. Great staff. It's a forest so do not expect WiFi and TV. Food is great. They even arranged a barbecue for us. The cottages are spacious and well maintained. The naturalist who took us for safari and trekking was informative and courteous. The main attraction and highlight of the trip was elephant interaction and it lives up to the hype. It's a one day trip and place is suitable for kids though they will need constant supervision.
A very serene elephant rehabilitation place. This place was clean with no dung smell (really impressed by this). We saw the elephants being bathed and then fed. The elephants were all clean and very friendly. The mahouts were also very friendly and accommodative of us taking pictures, etc. The boat ride to this place added a touch of scare and uniqueness to this visit. We saw a good mix of bull elephants as well. If my review helped, please press the like icon on this review.
Nice Place. you will enjoy lot elephant feeding and ride if you want. Do not go in July month because rainy season. so, some time water is too much. before going check with them or call Dubare camp. Overall, Very nice place.
You will be ferried to an island where you get to see a lot of elephants. They are very tame and harmless. For a small fee, you can also feed or bathe them. Do not try to irritate these humble giants. The officials will guide you, listen to them and you are good!
