Excellent activity around 1hr from Madikeri for children in particular. The elephant camp is accessible across a small stream which had partially dried up due to summer so the old noisy motor boat can't take you across rather you walk across rock, ankle to knee deep slow, running water took around 30 minutes to walk across with a lot of...

Well, yes as you enter Coorg you think to visit this place, but actually Zoo is better where you get to see many other animals than just Elephants. and technically I have no issues with the Elephants or a love to see other animals but the pain it takes to reach at the venue is quite frustrating and funny. Its... More

To reach Dubare Elephant Camp in month of May, you have to cross the river Kaveri by walking. It is an adventure by itself and I am glad we did not break our bones since we slipped many times due to moss on the stones. Children were not enthused seeing elephants but were worried about the cruelty to the animals

It was an adventure to visit this elephants training camp which bathes 20 elephants in morning where you are allowed to interact scrub elephants for a price and later on feed them all for tickets but kids enjoy a lot... worth visit the island by walking 300 meters into knee high water thin river or wait for the dingy boats...

I loved the way the calfs moving around and splashing water. It was a nice experience overall. One thing is to reach exactly at the time they being bathed, I think 9 a.m.

Reach this place by early morning around 8-9. This is the time when you could see all the elephants and their calves coming out of the camp to take a shower :) in the river. You are also allowed to bathe the elephants and the most interesting part is the calves. They just love to see and play around humans.... More

We (two couples) reached Dubare Elephant Camp (a unit of Jungle Lodges and Resorts) on May 17 early afternoon. After lunch and brief rest went for the Jungle Safari. Again went for the Jungle Safari starting at 6:45AM on May 19. Both the Safaris in Geeps with guide/driver were enjoyable. Got to see one solitary Tusker in full glory, a... More

Nice place to watch,bath and feed elephants. It has different timings in the morning and afternoon. But morning timings is the best. U can have good photo shoot with elephants. But u have to cross river which has slippery stones. Don't wear shoes. One can cross it by boat also which starts after 9 a.m.
