Kuala Gandah Elephant Sanctuary, Pahang

3.5
#2 of 52 in Parks in Pahang
Admire the stoic and friendly Malaysian elephants at Kuala Gandah Elephant Sanctuary. An endemic species, the elephants here are orphaned and many will be relocated to suitable habitats once rehabilitated and able to live in the wild. Watch the animals being washed and fed before getting the chance to ride one and swim in the river with them as they bathe. Due to the sanctuary's popularity, advance reservations are recommended.
