I was told that we will have the opportunity to bathe and feed elephants - however none of this was available. All that we did was take a boat to cross the river to reach the camp only to see chained elephants giving you an opportunity to get a photo clicked with them and touch them. There was just nothing more to do. There were some 10-12 elephants in the camp the day we visited.
Go there of you want to see elephants from a close proximity. There is nothing more to this.

Its fine, could have been better...and i say this since during peak vacation season there is a lot of crowd and you have to hurry through a few things and wait in long queues for getting on a boat. The travelling experience also isnt good since there are no direct buses and private vehicles like rick is costly (costed 300 for a rick from kushalnagar stop till Dubarre). You have to be on the right time to see the elephant bathing and all. However you can get a photo-op and touch them when you reach the stable area.

Please wear comfortable clothes like shorts, track pants. During summer, the water is shallow & you have to walk a 300 m stretch to & fro as the boats are non-operational. The path is extremely slippery & you have to be very careful while walking. Many people fall. Carry a walking stick if possible. It will take approx. 45-60 mins either way. A complete no-go for elderly & small kids/infants. Timings are 9-11 in the morning & 4-6 in the evening. Better go in the morning or early evening. Latest you can reach in the morning is before 11

Ticket is INR 50 & the feeding costs another INR 50 per hay stack. For bathing the elephant, the mahout charges INR 200. Overall experience is decent.

The elephants at Dubare look well looked after. It is fun to watch them having a bath. Just a word of caution. Before the monsoon hits Coorg, the river that has to be crossed to reach the camp runs shallow. Row boats do not ply. We are allowed to wade in the water. However the river bed is rocky and slippery. Many slip and fall and hurt themselves. Take a walking stick, keeps hands free, hold on to each other for support. Have fun!

Dubare camp is open for elephant interaction from 9 to 11:30 and then in the evening from 4 to 6.
There is a long queue for tickets, took us almost 40 mins there ..as usual oversmart people try to break the queue, get families and friends etc etc. Cash only allowed..so.make sure u have enough change ..80 per ticket + 40ish for boating. So u basically buy ur ticket, sit in motor boat and cross over the river to meet the elephants. Mahouts are well trained and have good command over the elephants. U can pay Rs 20 and get to feed elephants (mixture of hay, jaggery and paddy). Had fun feeding these huge babies..
If u love rafting, rafts are available with life jackets. I am not into adventure so I didn't try but it river is flat here, so it's not any kind of white water rafting. Just a joy ride types.
Just make sure u reach early so u spend less time in queue.

Excellent experience with elephants & their daily routine. Must visit through Jungle Lodge and Resorts. This will give you priority access to elephant Bath & feeding. Must visit

The place is good to visit with kids. It is adventurous to cross the river and its a fun activity but without any safety precautions or guidance, you are at your own risk.
The biggest concern is unofficially charges being taken by Mahuts (elephants caretaker), they ask for money to feed or to bathe an elephant, which is ideally covered as part of 50/- entry fee.
If you refuse to pay then they will push the elephant to come out of water.
A complete mismanagement.

We booked for activities by JLR.
From Dubare, we were taken to JLR by Abdul by speedboat. On arrival, there was floating bridge to Jungle Lodges and Resorts (JLR).

We were received by Sandeep from JLR

As part of the activities booked, we were offered breakfast buffet.
The restaurant had a river view

After breakfast, we had fun time with elephants by bathing the baby elephant, male and female elephants.
Please wear slippers or waterproof footwear for elephant bathing activity.

Then we were also taken to the elephant training camp and were briefed on how the elephant are trained for min of 8 months or more. Do ensure to carry sunglasses and umbrella if you are going in Summer season

We also fed a male elephant, hugged him, took pictures with him and were also blessed by the elephant with its trunk for feeding him.

We had to buy elephant food for Rs.100

We were dropped at the pick up point after the activity using the speed boat
