Amazing trip, our guide was amazing and made the day very easy going.
Highlight of the day was bathing the baby elephants lots of splashing and lots of fun.
The Deerland may sound a bit naff but it was actually a lot of fun and well worth doing if you like animal encounters.
Cant fault the day bloody brilliant !

AMAZING trip! Our tour guide was super friendly and pointed out interesting things for us. Started off at the Batu Caves- what a trek but well worth making it to the top. Then onto Deerland and the Elephant Sanctuary. Lunch was nice, and fresh fruit on the way home topped it off. Thank you!

A wonderful trip. Our guide was great and looked after us well. The visit to the beautiful Batu Caves was fantastic. It was really nice being able to feed the elephants. One of the highlights however was the optional visit to the Deer Park, which is well worth paying for. Got to hold a Python there.

The Batu Caves first part of tour are a must see for any visit to KL. The Sanctuary is good for getting close to the younger elephants and watching the adults interact with their mahuts. It's rather frustrating being taken first to see a film, which one could see from home, but the content - the struggle to help elephants in the face of the mass loss of their ranges to the palm oil plantations and miserable government funding is worth seeing. We had a lovely guide, Johnson, and enjoyed his company.

Well organized, informative, could
Not wash the baby elephants due to the rivers water level, unfortunately incident with unsupervised children teasing the elephants with food, no staff in sight to stop then.

Our English speaking driver arrived on time, ready with water and suggestions for the day. Travel to the Elephant Sanctuary included a stop at the amazing Baht Caves for a quick hike into the limestone caverns, walk through the vendors and picture taking. Our guide might have been able to provide a running travelogue for the 1.5 hour drive onward to Kuala Gandah but I was getting to know my new travel mate. The Sanctuary itself was a bit disappointing as the river was down so no bathing or free-roaming observation of elephants. That said, as an LA Zoo docent, I found the video presentation, youngster visitation and 'parade' of elders with their handlers very wonderful. These folks are providing a space and the care for creatures that have been robbed of their natural environment. The overwhelming palm tree plantations are squeezing out living space for too many living things!
