What You Can Expect
Next, continue driving through a tropical rainforest and arrive at the Elephant Orphanage Sanctuary (also known as the Kuala Gandah Elephant Sanctuary). This elephant conservation center rescues Asian elephants from areas where their habitats have been destroyed by urbanization and brings them to the sanctuary, where they’re placed in an expertly constructed natural environment and nurtured back to health before being released back into the wild.
On your tour of the center, you’ll learn all about these ambitious rehabilitation efforts and discover the importance of habitat and environmental preservation. Witness the daily activities of these beautiful animals, including watching the specially trained and committed team of wildlife experts feed them. You'll surely enjoy this amazing and insightful wildlife experience.
At midday, enjoy lunch either packed for you or at a local restaurant. After your tour, you'll be taken back to your hotel with many memories and photos to share.
We had a nice guide which made a big difference as we had had some bad experiences on other trips. This guide actually stayed during our meal and ate with us, he also included drinks, whereas on all other trips the guide tells you to buy your own,. He also provided different fruits for us to try and we felt he was interested and eager to make the trip enjoyable for us. He was attentive and gave good and interesting commentary throughout the trip. The elephants were fun, we did not know from details on viator site that it included bathing with the elephants so had not brought a towel or change of clothes. However, guide really helpfu,l supplied paper towels and in heat quickly dried off. One of the better KL trips and very educational-great trip for kids!
Fabulous trip - excellent guide. Interesting to see the countryside. Elephants were enchanting though getting in the river with them would surely be a brave and dubious thing to do. Great experience
