Visit the Kuala Gandah Elephant Sanctuary.
Approximately 1 hour 45 minutes drive towards the State of Pahang, stop at the aborigine settlement to have an insight of the aborigine culture of Malaysia. After that, proceed to Kuala Gandah Elephant Sanctuary.
This conservation centre is run by The Department of Wildlife and National Parks. The main task of the department’s staff is locating, subduing and then relocating elephants from areas where their habitats have been destroyed in the name of urbanization. The centre strives to highlight the plights of elephants and educate the public about the importance of habitat and environmental preservation. Over the past 25 years, the centre has helped in preventing the further decline of elephant population by relocating more than 300 wild elephants.
Tour includes elephant show, elephant feeding and for the brave, a water activity of bathing with the baby elephants in the river.
Please be informed that in line with the sanctuary’s enhanced approach in conservation practices, the elephant riding activity has been discontinued in the centre. The new regulation is enforced to avoid causing distress to the elephants and enabling them to live in their natural environment as much as possible
Wear comfortable shoes and clothes. Cotton T-shirts with long or short pants recommended. Sandals/Slippers recommended
Bring along bath towel and spare clothing in case you get wet or dirty.
