What to Expect
This day tour is a great opportunity to learn about the unique biodiversity of the region surrounding the city of Kuala Lumpur. Escape the hustle and bustle of the city and discover the unique wildlife and cultural heritage of Malaysia.
Start your day around 09:00 with a pick-up at your central Kuala Lumpur hotel. Continue by air-conditioned vehicle for a 2-hour drive to the Malaysian state of Pahang, where you’ll explore an aboriginal settlement and observe the daily life of local residents.
Next you’ll head to the Elephant Orphanage Sanctuary (also called the Kuala Gandah Elephant Sanctuary), a conservation center tasked with saving Asian elephants whose natural homes have been lost due to urbanization.
The sanctuary offers a chance to learn about the center’s work and to discover the importance of preserving the elephant’s habitat. Admire these gentle animals in their meticulously re-created natural environment that allows them the opportunity to gain their strength back before returning to the wild.
You’ll also get to watch the specially trained staff feed them. This is an amazing chance to get an intimate look at these one-of-a-kind creatures.
Finish your excursion with a ride back to Kuala Lumpur and drop off at your hotel.
