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.
Pick up at your hotel in Kuala Lumpur.
Arrival at the Elephant Sanctuary
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. ),
Watch a Video on the Wild Elephants and the Translocation Program
A short video clip highlights the work of the Elephant Rescue Team. Most wild elephants are NOT brought back to the Sanctuary but relocated to the National Forest Reserve. Only the injured elephants who have been trapped or are injured are brought back to be rehabilitated and trained to be used for elephant rescue work.
