Dubare is known for its elephant camp, a forest on the banks of the River Kaveri in the Kodagu District of Karnataka. It is an important base for the Karnataka Forest Department's elephants. Dubare offers to its visitors fun, rafting and trekking in the wild hilly terrains. Day Visit: A three-hour nowhere-else elephant interaction is destined to be the most unforgettable experience at Dubare Camp. It kicks off with a 45 minute bath in the Kavery, where you scrub an elephant and groom it with oil from close proximity. You can also participate in feeding the elephants with ragi, jaggery, sugarcane, banana and coconuts. And finally, take a 10 to 15 minute walk with the elephant.
Bannerghatta on the outskirts of Bangalore (25km) offers you all the sights, sounds and action of 25,000 acres of carefully preserved jungle. In the eco-proactive spirit of Jungle Lodges, we have created a Nature Camp - an ideal place for school children/ freshers to get moulded into future naturalists. Bannerghatta is where the Karnataka Forest Department rehabilitates lions and tigers rescued from circuses (the largest number in India).
Bangalore has many hills in its vicinity. Nandi hills is one of the most spectacular hills located just 50 km from Bangalore City. An early morning visit to this hill gives you a spectacular view of the clouds just staying just below the hill. The breeze that blows gives you a great feeling to begin your day with a refreshment in the weekends. Devanahalli Fort is yet another fort located to the North of Bangalore City. It is just 35 km from Bangalore City. The fort is built completely with mud under the rule of the Vijayanagara Dynasty. Nandi Hill Devanahalli Fort
