This truly unique Elephant Orphanage of Kuala Gandah will give you a very rare opportunity to learn about these displaced gentle giants, and also the chance to ride them through the jungle, with the help of an elephant guide, or mahout.

For the brave and adventurous, there are opportunities to take the elephants down to the river and help give them a bath! There really is no better opportunity than this to get in touch with these grey giants.

It is estimated that there are only 1,200 wild Asian Elephants, also known as Elephus Maximus, left in Malaysia and this is the only conservation centre set up to relocate these displaced pachyderms.

The elephants here have been rescued from all over Peninsula Malaysia, providing them a safe sanctuary in the wild.
