This 1 day experience will transport you from the city of Kuala Lumpur to the heartland of a tropical forest where you will get up close and personal with elephants, hand-feed the Elephants and even take a bath with them in the river stream if you so wish.
You will surely be guaranteed an Ele-Fun Day!

I will also take you to Deerland - a private "zoo" with many different types of wildlife for you to pet. This facility is closed on Fridays.

Arrival at the Elephant Sanctuary

Summary

Lanchang is a small village where you can find an elephant sanctuary named Kuala Gandah Elephant Conservation Centre or the Elephant Orphanage Sanctuary. The elephant sanctuary was established in 1989 within the Krau Wildlife Reserve, and is managed by the Malaysian Department of Wildlife and National Parks. Here many orphaned elephants are raised and given shelter. Elephant rides are NOT available at the Sanctuary. Upon arrival in Lanchang, we shall proceed to Lanchang to visit Deerland to have some petting zoo fun (unless it is Friday when the facility is closed. ),
