Dubare Elephant Camp
This elephant camp has about 30- 40 elephants which are bought for bathing to the river in the morning. This is when you can take turns to wash and brush these elephants and jumbos and also click photos with them. The only criterial is that you need to reach the spot before 9:30 AM in the morning or after 5:00 PM in the evening. These are the time when you get this place a little less crowded as otherwise the queue is usually too long to end.
It is actually an island, surrounded by the rivulets of Cauvery river, encircling its banks on all sides. And, along with this comes a beautiful resort, situated amongst the lush greens of the Nisargadhama Island, right in the middle of the walkable piece of land. The hanging bridge that took me across the river was an amazing experience. And to add to this were the ever-adventurous opportunities to row a boat in the river streams, and go on some enjoyable elephant rides and mostly the exceedingly incredible views of the flora and fauna around the island. Especially numerous species of deer, peacocks, monkeys and birds - all inhabitants in their very natural habitat.
