There is a long queue for the boat ride so best either be early or cross the river by yourself. Also you can feed the elephant and take a picture with them

The conditions how elephants are kept are not good though kids enjoy the rides for a while. You get a chance to see how they feed elephants and experience giving bath.

Dubare is not in good condition... Not at all maintained ... It could have been excellent.. But reaching Dubare through River is good experience.
