Walk with the Majestic Pachyderms at Dubare Elephant Camp

We’ve all seen elephants on TV. We’ve even seen them in zoos, but have you ever walked with these giant herbivores in the wild? This is the precise experience that Dubare Elephant Camp offers you. Located in the heart of Coorg district which is known for its picturesque landscapes and great weather, Dubare is one place that you cannot afford to miss. The Elephant Camp is a mere 240 kilometers from Bangalore and can make for an excellent weekend long drive.

Get the young ones in your family along and become a kid along with them as you play with these huge animals on the banks of River Cauvery. Riding the elephants to feeding them, you will love every moment that you spend interacting with these gentle giants. Not just that, we indulge you in an array of fun and adventurous activities throughout your stay at Dubare Elephant Camp. The region also hides in his womb several exotic wild creatures you’ve never seen before. The place is of extreme delight for nature, wildlife, and adventure enthusiasts.

Dubare is a lush green jungle that is home to a variety of wildlife such as the very beautiful spotted deer and sambar that move in herds grazing by the river side. The river even plays host to crocodiles that roam around freely in the waters, not that you have to be worried about them as our local experts will be with you for guidance all the time.

Also, these water creatures are quite elusive. The word “twitter” assumes a whole new meaning in Dubare as hoards of exotic bird species make pleasant sounds during dusk as they fly back to their nests. The simmering sunlight of the evening coupled with the beautiful birds is a scene to behold and of course, capture if you are a photography enthusiast. Kingfishers, woodpeckers, and partridges are just some of the variety you will find here.

Dubare offers something for everyone. From adventurous activities like river rafting and trekking through the wild to the gentler coracle rides and bird watching, Dubare caters to a verity of individual tastes. There are also several sites that you can visit.

Interact with the elephants: We have designed an exclusive three-hour elephant interaction session especially for you. Here, you would not only ride them but also are invited to participate in elephant bathing and to feed them. Bathing with the elephants is an experience in itself as these huge animals roll around in the shallow waters and raise loads of dust on the shores spraying it all around.

Splash some water at River Cauvery: If you love fishing, River Cauvery presents you with ample opportunities to indulge in this leisurely activity. Here, you can go on coracle rides and also try your hand at river rafting under the guidance of experts. If you are an adrenaline junky, visit Dubare in the rainy season between June and September when River Cauvery is at its best.

The exploration is never ending: The famous Abbi falls is a mere 8 kilometers from the camp. Enjoy the never-ending view from the Raja’s Seat which is an equally famous viewpoint in Madikeri. You could also pay your respect to Mother Cauvery at Tala Kaveri, which is considered the birth place of the river. Within the premise of Dubare Elephant Camp, you will be taken on treks and nature walks. There is also the exciting jeep safari that you can take. You will be transported through the well laid out paths in hopes of a chance encounter with the elusive wildlife.

Coorg district is well known for its pleasant weather year round. As mentioned earlier, if adventure is your thing, nothing can beat the river rafting experience in the rainy season. However, the season after the monsoons is ideal if you want to go sightseeing and indulge in fun activities. Dubare dons the blanket of greenery as the rains subside between September and March.

The 10 hugely spacious cottages at Dubare Elephant Camp are everything but ordinary. Built keeping the theme of the region in mind, you will find every amenity that makes for a comfortable stay here. Your accommodation will never prove a barrier between you and the nature when you are here.

From Bangalore: Dubare is approximately a-240-km-drive from Bangalore. Head towards Ramanagara, which is 49 kms from Bangalore and then towards Mysore passing Mandya. Take the Mysore bye-pass road towards Hunsur and cross Hunsur bye-pass. After crossing Hunsur, which is 44kms from Mysore, take the road toward Kushalnagar. A 14km drive from Kushalnagar and you would reach Dubare.
