The place is full of Elephants. You have to reach this place by boat or you can wade through ankle deep water in winter. There are several elephant enclosures and also a place where they tame wild elephants, but this place is off limits. You are allowed to feed the elephants for a small fee. You can watch the elephants... More

1. The elephants are many, but you can only see bathing and feeding. Elephant rides are not allowed (at least when we went in April 2017) 2. We are to cross a river to reach the camp. During summer, when the river does not have adequate water, the boat service does not work and you have to cross the river... More

Dubare Elephant camp is an adventure in itself. The place offers a chance to bathe & feed elephants, which is big attraction for kids and adults alike. This is a morning activity as bathing/feeding closes by 11am. The access to the place is via crossing the Cauvery river, which is not deep and has lots of rocks creating a pathway.... More

this place is a must visit, near to kushalnagar easily commutable by local buses. the frequency of buses is really good. once you enter here you get two options to reach the camp. One is by rafting(you cant really call it a rafting) or by trekking(a short stretch). camp is beautiful. you can spend time watching elephants

Its an experience to Feed and Bath the Elephants and touch them. The Dubare Elephant camp is just on the river bank and the best way to get there is by motor boat which is easily available. Only thing is that if the water is low it a trek through the river. The best time is to reach the camp... More

To start with, its a nice surrounding. The rocky outcrop on the cavery river provides the right obstacle course to reach the finish line on the other bank, which is where the elephant camp ( as we were told) is located. We reached on time to meet our over sized friends at the appointed hour of around 4 pm. The... More

This is an excellent camp run by the forest department. Extremely well maintained. There are 26 elephants but 10 were away on work. Could sight 16 elephants with two three year old. The oldest was 51 years. Crossing the river is very tedious. Feeding is a good activity particularly if you know the local language.
