TEMPAT JUALAN SOUVENIR
Learn about the jungle, get in touch with your spiritual innerself. Feed the animals, appreciate what nature have to to offer.
Deerland Park deer sanctuary is situated in Bukit Rengit, Lanchang. It’s a 2 hours drive from Kuala Lumpur. It is interesting and fascinating during the deer-feeding session as you can touch the wild animals that have been tamed and trained to allow human to go near the deers and touch them. The park’s Animal World offers other attractions such as peacocks, ostriches and a sunbear.
The Deer park has more than just deers. We also saw a respectable collection of various birds including peacocks and peahens, a family of sunbears (Malaysia's endangered bear species), a hedgehog, and a couple of snakes.
The main attraction is, of course, the deer enclosure, which has a decent number of deer ranging from full-grown bucks to fawns. The deer are very friendly and will come right up to you once they spot the food basket. It may be a bit intimidating for little children, though, as they're not afraid to paw you.
Ride the elephant
Feed the elephant
Bath with elephant
The journey takes between 2 to 2 1/2 hours and is 160km from Kuala Lumpur.
Kuala Gandah Elephant Orphanage Sanctuary, Pahang is a rare and fantastic opportunity to get up close to endemic Malaysian elephants.
This truly unique Elephant Orphanage of Kuala Gandah in Pahang will give you a very rare opportunity to learn about these displaced gentle giants.
Get 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.~tourismmalaysia~
Also, wear long pants, for the elephants have surprisingly rough skin
