What does कभी-कभार mean?

I found the meaning "rarely, seldom", is it right?

For instance:
कभी-कभार जब हाथी गाँव में घुस आते हैं, तो निर्मला को बुलाया जाता है

Thanks in advance.

    कभी-कभार जब हाथी गाँव में घुस आते हैं, तो निर्मला को बुलाया जाता है
    Sometimes elephants enter into the village and nirmala (female name) is called.
    other words rarely and seldom can also be used in place of sometimes but it depends upon the sentence structure. In sentences like this we would prefer to use sometimes but if i want to say i go there rarely than i would use कभी-कभार मैं वहाँ जाता हूँ
