Had a fabulous trip to the Sanctuary with my Son. Our guide Henry was outstanding, so helpful and knowledgeable. Riding the elephants and getting drenched in the river with the baby elephants was a real highlight. !!
Note from Viator: This review is based on a previous tour itinerary. Unfortunately, activities with the elephants are no longer offered due to Malaysian animal safety laws.
Private tour was great. Private guide Henry was very knowledgeable and very helpful... we really enjoyed the tour. Graham and Debbie (Australia).
Our trip was sensational, our guide took a lot of time to ensure myself, my husband and our 2 children were comfortable by stopping for food breaks and toilet stops along the way and included many other expected stops as points of interest along the trip to the Elephant Sanctuary which we had not expected. This experience will last our family for a lifetime, we all completely enjoyed ourselves with the whole day exceeding our expectations. I would highly recommend anyone to go on this tour with Viator as the tour guides. I'm looking forward to returning and will be using Viator for our future trips to show us KL and its beautiful surrounding areas.
Can't stress enough how amazing this tour was! A must-do for all animal/nature lovers. The guide was extremely friendly, helpful and knowledgeable.
IT was fantastic the guide whose name was Roger was the most amusing bloke ever he invented everything and new everything just ask him. They were there on time the trip was long but the Sanctuary was well worth it, booking with viator is hassle free, iy all was just so well organised.
Excellent, driver was very informative and always took great care of us. I would highly recommend this tour company....Brian and Janice

well worth the money for this trip was an experience we won't forget
What a wonderful opportunity to get close and personal with the Sanctuary elephants. It was a fantastic day and was totally awesome. Our guide, Mr Wong was brilliant and provided informative knowledge about his country prior to swimming with the baby elephants - he is an asset to the company. Thank you for a wonderful day.

The whole trip was amazing. Our driver was the best. He went out of his way to make the experience extra special for my wife and I. He was extremely friendly and very knowledgeable. The day was better than I could have hoped for. Thank-you very much.
Wow! we really enjoyed this tour it was great to meet the elephants and all the other wildlife at the Deer Park. However, we do not agree with the palm sugar and rubber plantations how they have left this poor elephants without a home.
Fantastic! From the moment we were picked up in our Mercedes our guide, Suffia, was entertaining and very informative. The Deer park was worth a visit and lunch was lovely and fresh at the roadside cafe in the village. The elephants were amazing and we were treated like royalty getting to do the feeding, washing etc before the general public. I would definitely recommend this as a trip of a lifetime.
A day that will be etched in our memories for every. The whole day was wonderful to experience Deerland where you can feed the deer, hold a snake and get to cuddle a honeybear. Having lunch with local cuisine, and the elephants are just amazing. Our driver was very informative and made sure we were well looked after. A must do when in KL
Mr. Singh was our private guide. He was amazing and so passionate about his job. He was very honest about the good and the bad of the region and full of information. He treated us so well and spoiled us. Great tour, highly recommend.
Awesome day! Our Guide was the best very knowledgeable and interesting! Apart from the awesome elephants we were shown palms and how the oil is extracted,rubber trees,fruit trees and were treated to some delicious food along the way. Two kids -12 and 10 yr old- loved it.
This was the most enjoyable part of our 9 days in Malaysia. I was most excited anticipating the elephant ride, but our tour guide encouraged us to feed the elephants and go in the river to bathe the elephants - both of which were very cool.
Our guide got us to the front of the line everywhere. He gave us far more educational value than just the elephant sanctuary, as we had a number of stops on the way to and from the elephant sanctuary, which is quite a long drive from KL. He even stopped at a roadside dessert stand on the way back, and treated us to a bowl of refreshing cendol (a Malaysian specialty).
Our tour guide was lovely. He was more than happy to share information with us and was happy to answer any questions we had. I would highly recommend it.
WOW AMAZING!!!!!!!!!!! this was the best day and memory!! fantastic really worth going on if you like wildlife!!
We had an amazing experience.Great guide, a lot of explanation about the sad position that the elephants are facing, great cultural experience, and an eye opening situation.The Malaysian government will have to act quickly before it impacts on tourism.Great time feeding the elephants, unforgettable time bathing the babies elephants.
Very worthwhile. Our tour guide was great. He had fluent English and knew a lot about the destination and everything about Malaysia in general. It felt like he was a friend we had known for ages he is great to get along with. Such a great experience to be up close with these animals.

Elephants were truly amazing even if the heavens did open!! Our tour guide made the whole experience enjoyable and memorable. Thank you
A must do if you are in KL. You get up close and personal with these beautiful animals. Yes they are tamed working elephants and you may feel that they are being exploited to the public but if you listen to the stories most of them are orphaned elephants so they would have perished in the wild if they weren't brought here hence the money you bring to this sanctuary is a little contribution to the conservation efforts for these beautiful animals. So please drop by, have a good time, and do your bit for animal conservation.
We had a great trip.The tour guide was informative and knowledgeable. The lunch was great and the elephant orphanage experience was fantastic. We would thoroughly recommend this trip.
