Elephant Training Camp, one of the 'must visit' attractions of Dubare, is a camp where a large number of animals are trained on the banks of Kaveri. This project is administered by the forest department and elephants are trained by Kurabas, a local tribe. Tourists can enjoy watching elephants bathe in the river and observe the animals perform on the directions of mahouts; elephants also perform mock logging operations at this site.
