This place is known as Kuala Gandah Elephant Sanctuary and was established in 1989.

This place displays documentary about the team’s effort in helping to relocate and rehabilitate the creatures and visitors may have a chance to feed the elephants who will be lining up in a row within their own enclosure. The elephant creates vital natural pathways by knocking over trees, allowing smaller species to feed, as well as dispersing plant seeds via its dung. However, due to habitat loss, elephants are forced to hunt for food in areas surrounding forest such as plantations and orchards.
