3.9/5 based on 550+ reviews on the web
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.

  • Beautiful nursery where you can get acquainted with the elephants, Pat, feed them, as well as watch a half-hour show with their participation, which runs twice a day. For animal lovers, as well as who has not previously been familiar with these kind of animals trip will be interesting and exciting! If you buy a Kennel visit as excursion, the cost is expensive, so it's best to rent a car, that together will visit other interesting places in the nursery costs cheap. For those who are more active recreation, of course, is not recommended. Ride for kids and animal lovers.

  • 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.
