Dubare Elephant Park 🐘 was waste of time for us, because we reached after elephants bathing was done which was the main attraction here. While we planning our day in morning, Manjit came-up with "innovative idea" 👻that we all will wear same colour t-shirt, since three of us had red colour t-shirt we wore them. We were looking like band wala :).
Our last day in the coffee country, we made a move to Dubare Elephant Camp. If you get your timing right, you can even participate in the bathing and scrubbing of the elephants in the Dubare camp. We got a little late getting here, so missed out on this. You can either raft across the river or simply take a shared boat. I was super excited about visiting Dubare elephant camp as the mere sight of these gentle giants makes me so happy. But, my visit made me quite sad looking at the plight of these elephants. I don’t think I would ever want to visit this place ☹
Our goal was to not to waste even a minute in Coorg. So we started to Dubare Elephant Camp which is 30km from Madikeri. Drive was fantastic as usual, a little bit dangerous as it rained previous day. Best time to reach Dubare Camp is before 10AM. Tuesday is Holiday.You will find shops with home made wine all way long, if you are lover of wine, try it :). After reaching Elephant camp, we parked our bikes and only way to reach camp is to cross Kavery River in boat.
