Love gentle giants? Then one of the must-do things to do in Virajpet is bathing Elephants at the Dubare Elephant Camp.
The Dubare Elephant Camp is an elephant sanctuary situated on the banks of the river Cauvery in Kodagu district of Karnataka. It is operated by the forest department and houses Asiatic black elephants that have retired after the logging industry in the surrounding forests shut down.
Rise early and head out to Bathe Elephants at the Dubare Elephant Camp. Besides Bathing Elephants at the Dubare Elephant Camp, you can also learn about the elephants and the camp’s history and its functions, from the mahouts and naturalists.
Before you try your hand at Bathing Elephants at the Dubare Elephant Camp, you must first observe the mahouts bathing, scrubbing, and oiling these trained elephants. You can also feed these gentle giants sugarcane bits, jaggery, banana and other fodder with your bare hands. After you're done Bathing Elephants at the Dubare Elephant Camp and feeding them, it is time for the tuskers to return the favour and reward you with a thrilling elephant ride through the surrounding jungle.
Don’t forget to carry a pair of binoculars, as besides just Bathing Elephants at the Dubare Elephant Camp, you can also take a jungle safari or bird watching tour organised by the camp. The camp also organises adventure sports like river rafting, coracle boat rides and treks through the jungle.
