The Dubare Elephant Camp project by Jungle Lodge and Resorts Ltd. (JLR) is situated along the Kaveri River. It is located in Karnataka's Kodagu or Coorg district and is a popular Coorg attraction in and of itself. Visitors to this camp find comfort in learning about the various elephant species each year.

The naturalists or the Mahouts—the people in charge of caring for tuskers and other elephants—have in reality given these elephants extensive training. These naturalists are actually quite knowledgeable about the biology and history of elephants. Global travellers learn more about the lifestyles, eating habits, laws, and other aspects of these elephants.

In addition, the Dubare Elephant Camp is home to a diverse range of flora and fauna, including creatures like tigers, deer, and gaurs. And for that reason, this initiative is being watched and is in JLR's hands.

These authorities have also used creative solutions to improve the quality of life for the animals living in the camp. These include opportunities for guests to interact with the elephants, bathe them, and then feed them. Another treat is taking a Jungle Safari tour of the surrounding forest. Professionals with extensive training frequently arrange a variety of activities such as trekking and camping near the Dubare Elephant Camp.

 

Best Time to Visit Dubare Elephant Camp

Though the camp is open for the whole year, the best time to visit would be after the monsoon has surpassed. Around September to March, the weather is quite pleasant and apt for touring around. Due to lesser rainfall, travellers would not have to go through slippery, sticky, or muddy pathways. 

Otherwise, visiting in summers can be plentiful fun too because of the clear weather and no scope of heavy rainfall as such.

 

Places to Visit Near Dubare Elephant Camp

Kaveri River: Kaveri is that river for which the Kannadigas are very sentimental. It starts from Brahmagiri Hill at Kodagu in Karnataka. In fact, it’s the fourth largest river in the whole of South India. Its basin is around 31,334 sq. mi. with about 8 tributaries. 

Kushalnagar: It’s a town on the banks of Kaveri river in Coorg. And by road, it is around 14-15 KM away from the camp. Area wise, Kushalnagar is 8 KM sq. with a population of 27,000 people approximately. Herein the languages that locals speak are Kannada, Are Bhashe, and Kodava Takk. Also, in many places, tourists can find people speaking simple or broken English or Hindi. 

Abbey Falls: By road, it will take an hour or more from the camp for the tourists, wanting to visit this extravagant waterfall in Madikeri. And this fall is also known as the Abbi Falls by the locals. The cascade of the lapping water drops down from the 70 feet, compelling the visitors to stand and watch the whole scenario. 

Nisargadhama: Also named as Kaveri Nisargadhama, it is a small island in Coorg. It’s a top-class destination for couples and bigger families. As tourists enjoy their quality time here, amid the greenery, boat riding is another reason for young kids and parents to spend their day.

Golden Temple: Just a 20 KM drive away from Dubare Elephant Camp, visitors can enjoy this attraction with their group of friends or travellers. In fact, it is actually called Namdroling Monastery. It is a beautiful and serene Buddhist Monastery located at Bylakuppe, wherein the temple has gilded images of Lord or Guru Padmasambhava, Buddha Amitayus, and other Buddhist Gurus.

Chikliholi Reservoir: This dam is only 15-20 minutes from Elephant Camp. It is open every day from 8 AM to 5 PM. And this place is not even that famous for tourists to crowd it like other tourist spots in Coorg, Karnataka. So, this place is a complete relief for those who are searching for a peaceful location.

 

Activities at Dubare Elephant Camp

Camping- Camping on the bank of river Kaveri is an excellent way to spend the weekend for nature lovers. There are certain picnic and camping spots nearby, embraced with the electric fences, to keep the campers protected from the tuskers and other elephants. The whole area has a great flora for coffee plantations and other exotic plants.

Elephant Safari- Bookings for elephant rides are accepted at the Dubare Elephant Camp from 10 AM to 12 PM and from 4 PM to 5 PM. The 45 to 60 minute ride circles the forest in and out. Each traveller can ride an elephant and see the entire perimeter of the jungle while being guided by qualified professionals who are walking beside them.

Bathe An Elephant- Around nine in the morning, tuskers congregate by the Kaveri river bank to take a bath or drink water. And they are joined by the mahout. As a result, visitors are given an opportunity to bathe the elephants for roughly 45 minutes. However, the travellers themselves must exercise caution. Some elephants or their young may flee, while others may choose to take a relaxing bath. They are also instructed to remove their shoes and avoid stepping on rocks that are submerged in the water.

Wildlife Film Show At Gol Ghar- After a trip of Jungle Safari, the famous wildlife movie is shown to the visitors. The whole content about wildlife animals like dogs, deers, elephants, and more is rather engaging and entertaining for the young kids. The bungalow itself is so posh and elegant that the travellers do not wish to part ways too soon.

Jeep Safari Into Dubare Forest- Many animals like deer, gaur, Sambar, Spotted Deer, tuskers, and others are spotted via the Jeep Safari. In case of bird-watching, travellers get to see Hornbill, Barbets, Parakeet, and other birds as well. The guests staying at the lodges offered by the Jungle Lodges and Resorts can avail the benefit of this Jeep Safari in the middle of the Elephant Camp.
