Venture through a tropical rainforest and arrive at the Kuala Gandah Elephant Sanctuary (also known as the Elephant Orphanage Sanctuary), just 1.5 hours from Kuala Lumpur. Before you begin your private tour of this elephant conservation center, managed by the Malaysian Wildlife Society, view an introductory video about the sanctuary and learn about the ambitious rehabilitation efforts to save the rescued Asian elephants.
The Elephant Orphanage Sanctuary creates a natural environment for the elephants and nurtures them back to health before releasing them back into the wild. Observe the daily activities of the elephants as they roam the camp. Your private guide will point out the specially trained team of wildlife experts as they feed and bathe the beautiful creatures.
At midday, enjoy a delectable Malaysian lunch, either packed for you or eaten at a popular local restaurant.
If you've selected an afternoon tour, and if river conditions allow, you'll have the amazing opportunity to interact with baby elephants. Get up close to these fascinating animals as you feed and bathe them -- a unique and insightful experience! (Please note: Baby elephant bathing is an optional activity that must be purchased onsite at the sanctuary. Availability is subject to change, as this activity does not operate when the water level of the river is low.)
After your tour, you'll be taken back to your hotel by private vehicle with many memories and photos to share.

My tour was amazing! My guide name pronounced like EYE was outstanding! He was full of so much knowledge of all things Malaysia animals, areas, food, EVERYTHING!. He guided me the whole way through Deerland and the sanctuary and was more than happy to take pictures, offer fun facts, and make jokes. I definitely recommend this tour. Don't forget to bring money to tip because he is great. I forgot and have never felt so bad about not tipping:-
