Newly Added Coorg Experience
06 March 2017
Abhishek Das Day Out at Dubare Elephant Camp in Coorg
It was an excellent experience visiting Dubare and experiencing elephant interaction. The naturalist-cum-guide of the trip was an extremely jovial and enthusiastic person who took us through the flora and fauna of the surrounding forest explaining various trees, ferns, lichens, birds etc. It was truly an informative experience. A sumptuous lunch was served which was also relishing to the tongue and stomach! However, let me warn future travelers of a few misleading things in the itinerary: 1. One must reach by 8:30 or 9:00 am and not 10am as mentioned in order to have the maximum interaction with the elephants. 2. There is no welcome drink as mentioned in the itinerary 3. Even the wildlife safari and coracle ride mentioned in the itinerary were not available. Wildlife safari is only for those who spend a night or more in the resort and for day outing guests, there is only a 1 hour walk in the forest. On enquiring about coracle ride, we were told that its not a part of the package and we were directed to a place for rafting conducted by private agencies charging Rs.200/- per head. 3. Most importantly, I request the visitors to maintain distance from the elephants especially while they are being fed. There is provision for visitors to buy hay and feed the elephants. As long as you keep feeding, they are fine but once you stop, they get angry and might not cooperate for clicking selfies and might also kick you hard (an elephant hit me on my ribs with its tusk).
