Dubare Elephant Camp
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’.
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.

It's beautiful. The proximity to elephants is incredible. The information about events there is sparse though. Be there before 8am and stay till 11am to enjoy everything. In the evening, I heard it's between 3 and 6. Avoid going during holiday season as the crowd is too much.
The elephants were very nice! I'm no expert, but it looked like they were being treated ok. BUT, there's an unnecessary boat ride to reach the Camp. Why a bridge to the other side isn't possible is a mystery. Also, the price signs are hidden. We would have liked to bathe an elephant, if only we knew that it costs 100 per head when entering. The whole boat experience made everything chaotic. You can't touch the elephant, but that's a positive in my book. Good for 30 minute visit. But waiting in line to get in and out of the Camp will take you at least 1 hour. Best to reach the parking area by 8:45 am.
Very bad experience in being here.. elephants are not treated well (see the video). They are used as a circus animal here.. bathing them by the visitors is a mockery. (pic attached). Seeing those poor animals in this horrible condition makes me very pity for humans. Boat ride to this place also looting people. If you are an animal lover kindly report this to Karnataka govt.
You can get good boat ride on cavery River for ~ 30 rs.. and pay 20 more for entrance. Good place for kids to touch and feel elephants. You can take pictures with them . It also offers river rafting with affordable cost
The place is open early morning until 11 AM and in the evening 4:30 PM to 5:30 AM. You need to take a boat to ply across the river to reach this place. The place is beautiful indeed with healthy elephants strolling in their respective enclosures. There's no elephant ride though and quite rightly so.
