  • One of the best places for kids and parents to visit. It was an amazing experience and we made a memory for life time. Elephants are treated very decently here. No rides . You can feed them n spend some good time in the woods. The walk from the parking to elephant camp is threw a river which is thrilling and must try.
  • One of the place to visit when you are at Coorg... You can spend an hour at this place... You have to take a small boat ride of about 5 min to reach this place... Entry fee of Rs 20 per adult and rs 30 pet adult for a boat ride.. once you reach other side of river you will see about 10 elephant.. you can feed them... Take pictures with them... Karnatak government has banned elephant rides.. so no elephant safari.. timing for the place are very strict... It closes at 11:30 am in the morning... Starts at 4:00 pm again and closes at about 6:00 pm.. at the end elephants take bath in the river and go to rest.. for kids it surely is an attraction...
  • This is really a great place. We need to cross a small river to reach the entrance of the elephant camp. You can either just walk over the river or take a boat to reach the entrance of the camp. We had lot of walking and it was a bit adventurous. Better to reach early at least by 8:30am before it gets crowded. You will get amazing views and pictures.
  • Had amazing fun. The river was dry enough so that we could cross it by stepping on the rocks(in may) and reached the park entrance. (There are rafts to reach the entrance as well) once inside the park...we met elephants of all ages. We could touch them...feed them straw balls...also ride them..(all the activities charge extra) and watch as they bathed in the river(for free) .Being so close to the majestic beings was amazing. One of them also sprayed water on me with their trunks after bathing. The mahouts are quite friendly and the park is well maintained.
  • Awesome place. specially if going with kids. Play in river water. Have fun with elephant bath, feeding and enjoy the still water river water. The place gets very crowded specially to hitch the boat to cross over. Enthusiasts can cross the river walking as well. Overall a good enjoyable place for 3-4 hours.
