Dubare Elephant Camp Reviews & Ratings

  • One amazing place in Coorg to spend good time with family and friends. It's one of the best suggested places for children. We travelled by 2 wheeler there. Parking Charges - ₹10; Changing room - ₹10 per person in case if you think of swim suit. Restrooms - ₹5 per person. Dubare Elephant Camp entry - ₹20 per person. If you want to give bath to elephant - ₹100 per person for 10 minutes. But that 10 minutes you get to touch and feel the skin of an elephant, which is amazing! To feed the elephant - ₹20 per person. All these are cash only... We say tourist places aren't well maintained many times. It isn't that the aren't maintained. We tourists dirty it. I could see a lot of thrown plastics and especially diapers there. It's a humble request. Kindly avoid all that.

  • Had a great time away from city life. Peacefully environment. Very nice interaction with elephants. Jeep Safari was very nice my kids enjoyed seeing Peacock dancing liked very much. The STAFF of the jungle lodge were good. Food was nice.

  • Very good place for time pass. Around 10000 people visiting here per day. It's a beautiful island. And many of elephants are camping here. To see the elephants there is visiting time on morning and evening. Otherwise everyone can spend much more time in the river, it's very beautiful.

  • The place gets too crowded. There are many shops, restaurants and even horse rides available on the banks of the river. Go here early to avoid the scorching sun and to see the elephants. They will close entry to the camp at 11 am. River crossing is a fun experience. You can take the ferry in the post- monsoon months. You can relax in the water a bit, if there's not much crowd. Entry to the camp is after you cross, they charge 20 bucks per head. There are many elephants inside. Feed them, bathe them, be happy! I was glad to see that elephant rides are not available here. Do not litter the place. Travel responsibly.

  • Beautiful and mesmerizing! The small hike through the water body is another fun experience in itself... So much joy! I liked the fact that they were not offering elephant rides. They only let you scrub the elephant during its bath time or let you feed it when it is their meal time. Well kept and well maintained!
