The Kuala Gandah Elephant Conservation Centre is a conservation facility located Lanchang town, a two-hour drive from Kuala Lumpur. Home to Asiatic elephants from Thailand, Myanmar, Malaysia, and Indonesia, the centre provides a fascinating insight into the world of elephant conservation.
Opened to the public in 1989, the Centre helps rehabilitate elephants from the nearby rainforests. Join these gentle giants on their daily routine, and get a chance to bathe and feed them too! Learn about how they were rescued and adopted from different areas, and understand the nuances of protection programs for these endangered species. Interact with the mahouts and visit the museum and learn all there is to know about these tuskers!
