Kuala Gandah Elephant Sanctuary

The Kuala Gandah Elephant Sanctuary houses more than 20 orphaned elephants that were rescued from the forest areas where their habitat has been threatened either by farmers or poachers. The visitors can expect a very rare experience learning about these gentle giants that are facing the threat of extinction.It is estimated that there are only 1,200 wild Asian Elephants left in Malaysia.

In this sanctuary, the visitors will have the chance to feed the elephants with watermelon, tree roots, grass, sugarcane or banana. Besides feeding the elephants, the brave visitors can take the opportunity to take the elephants down the river and bathe them. They can also visit the gallery that is filled with lots of information related to elephants.

Hear From Others

I really enjoyed the presentation that demonstrated how strong elephants are and how good their balance was. I was glad that the elephants at Kuala Gandah Elephant Sanctuary looked happy and were not abused or trained to do silly tricks.

The afternoon was beautifully spent. I didn’t feel like I missed out because I didn’t get to to ride an elephant. I never wanted to anyway. The elephants are not there to serve as tools for my amusement. But I’ve always wanted to hug them, and I am beyond ecstatic that I did. I wish that all elephants could roam free without the threat of poachers and being killed from the ivory trade. I hope that education will increase the demand for sustainable touristic activities.

Overall Kuala Gandah Elephant Sanctuary is a fun and educational family outing. Kids enjoyed the activities very much and treasured the opportunity to get up close with wild elephants.
