About Dubare Elephant Camp, Madikeri

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’.

Dubare Elephant Camp, Madikeri Reviews

  • Have visited this place sometime back and it was a memorable experience. It is easy to spot this place but you have to walk a lot to reach this place., but there is a new road that is being built currently. I would recommend not to go to the spot by Auto since they charge you a bomb. After reaching this place you will welcomed with a great view and walking right across the river on stones, getting to see all the elephants was truly a memorable experience. The timings are not that important since they are open almost all the time and you get to see the elephants. You can pay the guys over there to go near the elephants. Kids would love this place.

  • Get close and personal with the gentle giants....have fun with family....you have to cross a river to reach here...we visited in summer so we had to cross this stream on foot else I think in other seasons boat service is available. Once reached here you can do activities like feeding and bathing elephant at extra cost apart from entry fee... You do get to click some nice photos with these elephants in personal... Nice place for children they will do enjoy the gaints company.

  • First, the road leading to camp is closed so you need to take an auto which will pass through a private property and drop you on other side of river. You would need to cross the river by foot and reach the camp. Hint: Crossing the river is not for old aged and kids as rocks are slippery. We crossed the river and it itself is an adventure. Also elephants are well taken care of and you see all of them with tusks. Nice for kids.

  • Decent place to spend a couple of hours altogether. A really good family tourist attraction. There are lot of elephants here. You can see them getting cleaned on the banks of the river and you can also see them getting fed with some of their food. Kids/children would love this place.

  • It is a great place to see and feel elephants up close. Right now the approach road which leads to the camp is under construction one has to either walk or take any auto or jeep ride from the main road to the camp. Once you get off the auto or jeep there is a beautiful shallow stream which needs to be crossed by foot(boat ride is also available). You would be able to see the elephants by the stream, the care takers give them bath there, you can buy a ticket and do the same. There is a separate ticket to the see the camp where elephants are fed and take rest. You can buy elephant food and feed it yourself.
