I've heard of the Kuala Gandah Elephant Orphanage Sanctuary, Is this a good place to experience them? Or are there any other places that are good? Thankyou :)
I went there with my then 4 yo daughter and we enjoyed ourselves very much. Unlike some other elephant rides offered elsewhere, the elephants are treated well there. Unfortunately, we got there a little too late to get the tickets for the 'bathing with the elephants' part of the programme. I recommend going early if it's a weekend. about 7 years ago
Kalau Gandah elephant sanctuary is the place to visit for a truly great experience for yr family. You can call them in advance to have special reserved visitor passes to sit n ride or sit n splash with the elephants in the river.
The park is free, open to public and run by the government but many tourist choose to arrange their visit through the tour guide to avoid disappointment or due to lack of time. The drive from kuala lumpur to the park is about 2 to 3 hrs.
There's a deer farm next to the park if you have the time to visit. The elephant sanctuary is open in the morning till 5-6pm but the shows starts from 2.15pm till approx 4pm.
The park official tel is +609-2790391 or www.wildlife.gov.my for more info. You will save on tour cost if you plan on yr own. Have fun. about 7 years ago
