Trip Planner: Asia / Malaysia / Pahang / Kuala Gandah National Elephant Conservation Centre
Admire the stoic and friendly Malaysian elephants at Kuala Gandah National Elephant Conservation Centre. An endemic species, the elephants here are orphaned and many will be relocated to suitable habitats once rehabilitated and able to live in the wild. Watch the animals being washed and fed before getting the chance to ride one and swim in the river with them as they bathe. Due to the sanctuary's popularity, advance reservations are recommended. Put Kuala Gandah National Elephant Conservation Centre and other Mentakab attractions into our Mentakab trip itinerary site, and watch your holiday take shape.
Kuala Gandah National Elephant Conservation Centre reviews
Why is this called a sanctuary? For god sake, most tourists want to see wildlife in their natural habitat or something as similar to that as possible, they do not want to see circus acts, or humans... more »
hot and deserted. Good day trip from Kuala Lumpur. Went because we were unable to travel overseas during this RMCO. nice exposure for my grandchild and to get her outdoors. more »
Very interesting place to visit and spend time with family with kids. A short walk from the parking lot to the main theatre. Its not like a zoo, here we can interact with the elephants, feeding them, and get to know their histories. Every elephant has it own story of why they end up to be here. The keepers are really doing a great job espescially in dealing with this wildlife animal. 5 stars! Entrance is free but if you have extra money, you can donate to the centre too.
I had fun here. Totally enjoyed. I shared the full video on my YouTube channel (since I don't know how to upload video here). Totally recommended! I think they took care of all the elephant very well.
