  • 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.
  • While everyone visiting the place are amused to watch the elephants, the elephants doesn't seem to be much happy here. Most of them are shedding tears literally. The way they are chained just portray them as prisoners. The concerned officials should look into this and make this place a happier one for the elephants, more than for the humans. The approach road for this place is pathetic. I'm just wondering why the tourism department is ignorant about such a basic infrastructure. People have to wait in long queue for taking the boat to the island. Instead, if the visitors are fit enough to cross the stream by walk, it is worth to experience it. We did it with two of our kids. Majority of the path is not slippery. However, it is safe if we put each step with little care. Overall upkeep of this place needs to be improved a lot.
  • Dubare Elephant Camp is very interesting place. Had a river which can cross either walking or via boat. Walking is very interesting across the when water level in the river is low. There is a chance of skidding. In the opposite side of river had a elephant camp. They provide traveling on the elephant with fees. Also boating is chargeable Have a happy journey
  • Nice place to see bunch of elephants. They are tied at their legs obviously. Have to cross small water flow to reach this place. Private boats are available or one can try to reach the place through water flow in case if flow is less. Going though flow is an amazing experience. You can feed elephants as well try to be on time. It usually open from morning 9.30am to 11.30am and 4.30pm to 5.30pm I remember.
  • It costs 30 rupees per person to get across the other side of the river via a motor boat. Then it is 20 rupees per person to enter the Dubare elephant camp. It is for sure one of the favorite tourist attractions and people who love elephants will love this place. The best time to go is before 11am in the morning. The crowd is more on weekends but it is a moving crowd. You won't feel stagnant. There are not many things to see other than elephants, but the environment and the nature around them will make you spend more time there. You can also feed the elephants for 20 rupees. It is well maintained.
