Discover the Kuala Gandah Elephant Sanctuary—a safe haven for endangered elephants—a short drive up north from Kuala Lumpur. Let your guide walk you through the ways of the aboriginal people of Malaysia before visiting the sanctuary that allows you to interact with these gentle giants.
Be picked up from your hotel in the comfort of an air-conditioned vehicle. Leave the city life behind as you pass by lush greenery towards the Aboriginal Settlement. Upon arrival, learn the ways of the indigenous people of Malaysia who live close to nature.
Have a nourishing lunch at a local restaurant before continuing your adventure at the elephant sanctuary. Watch a 30-minute video and learn about the past of the sanctuary and their relocation work before going inside the reserve to see the elephants.
Feed the elephants with some sugar cane, peanuts, or bananas sold at a nearby stall. As you stroll down to the river, roll up your pants before you wade in to bathe the orphaned baby elephants. Dry off before being taken back to your hotel for some well-deserved rest.
