Located on the banks of River Cauvery in Coorg, Dubare Elephant Camp is one of the most popular tourist spots in Coorg. It attracts hordes of tourists from everywhere. The elephant camp boasts of plenty of elephants and offers tourists with an exceptional opportunity to be close to them and spend some memorable moments with them.

A project undertaken by the forest department and jungle lodges and resorts, Dubare Elephant Camp is a perfect place for wildlife enthusiasts.

It is the place where elephants used to be trained for Mysore Dussehra. However, now these animals are used for jungle rides. These elephants are trained under naturalists. Tourists can observe elephants in detail and from quite close. Trained Naturalists offer tourists with details on Elephant history, ecology and biology.

Activities at Dubare Elephant Camp

Elephant ride is the most popular activity at Dubare Elephant Camp. Visitors can participate in various activities involving elephants. Visitors can go for three hour elephant interaction at the Dubare Elephant Camp. Other activities like 45 minute bath in the River Cauvery where tourists can give bath to elephants, feeding them with ragi, jaggery, sugarcane, banana and coconuts and a 45 minute elephant ride into the jungle makes your visit at the Camp a memorable one.

During summer, when the water level is low, one has to cross the river on foot to reach the camp. This is a fun experience for kids, however one needs to take caution as the rocks are slippery and people might get injured. During other seasons, when the water level is more, there are boats that take visitors to the other side of the river. Please note that the place gets crowded with people waiting for boat rides and hence it is advisable to reach early.

If you love rafting, rafting is also available in the river beside the camp at nominal fee. This is still-water rafting and can be enjoyed after your visit to the camp.
