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.

  • Wooow!the perfect spot to watch elephant eat,bath and ride them if you happen to visit them in the month. What time please don't ask me I have no idea on that. Entrance fee is used to be cheap and I don't know what's the price now. Visit this place with my brother, sister in law, triambiga all. This is actually a great place to visit if you love to see elephant. Elephant also will do some tricks too and that is fun. Bring umbrella if not ....
  • Kuala Gandah Elephant Sanctuary is located near Lanchang. This sactuary is meant to provide a place for elephants that are captured. Visitors, both local and foreigners, visit Kuala Gandah Elephant Sanctuary especially during the weekends to observe how the staff take care of the elephants as well as take part in some of the activities held like bathing the elephants and feeding them.
  • A great experience for adults and children alike. Feeding the elephants is the highlight, however it is also interesting to understand their plight and what is being done to save and protect them. It's a lengthy 2 hour drive from Kuala Lumpur but the scenery along the way is nice. There are no entrance fees however donations are expected and appreciated.
  • I worked there ,obviously would saying good things about it. :-)
  • If you are an animal lover, you must go here. You will know the elephant's fact, the way they caught wild elephant. There also provide an activity with limited seats such as elephant bath. The admission is free but you can give donation if you want to support the sanctuary.
