Complete Guide to Kuala Gandah Elephant Sanctuary

Back in 1989, the Malaysian Wildlife Sanctuary established an elephant sanctuary within the Krau Wildlife reserve for rare Asian Elephants. As of today, there are now about 1,200 elephants living inside the Kuala Ganda Elephant Sanctury.

These elephants were displaced due to the continued poaching and logging for urban and agricultural development within the area. This conservation method was initiated to preserve the species, care for the young before they’re released to the wild.

Tourists can engage in several activities with elephants. They can go near to have real interactions with these mammoth beings. Those who prefer to watch and observe can also do so at the observation deck set higher up.

    David, our tourguide made our day trip to the Kuala Gandah Elephant Santuary one of the highlights of our Malaysia holidays. He picked us up from the Concorde in time and took us in the aircon minivan to the Batu Caves first.

    We had enough time to climb the stairs and visit the temples and get together with the monkeys.
    After that he drove us to Kuala Gandah and explained a lot about Malaysia’s history, culture and economy, thus making the transfer entertaining. We were happy to get the chance to have someone at our convenience to answer all the questions we had.

    Just before we reached Kuala Gandah we stopped by the Deerland Park which is kind of a mini zoo in the forests. Although we totally and fully appreciate the efforts of the staff to run the park, it’s not exactly up the expectations of us Europeans. But as everywhere in Malaysia, people were very kind and helpful.

    Finally arriving at the sanctuary David bought us the complementary lunch in the small cafeteria of the park which was tasty and of good quality. After that he handed us over to a centre guide who then lead us through the park.

    The sanctuary itself is in good condition and all the rangers and guides are friendly and funny people. Communication was easy and they’re enthusiastic about their work and take great care about all the elephants and pay a lot attention even to small details in their work.
    The bathing was just fun in the warm river with a lot of splashing and joking around. The ground is sandy, so no worries about possible injuries or leeches. The whole visit was just easy going.

    Finally we returned to David who then brought us back to our hotel around 5 p.m. As we were only two people the tour was a true private one. Thank you David for your kind support and the nice day.
