A day trip out to Elephant Conservation Center run by Malaysia National Park & Wildlife Department. An educational exposure to the wild elephant’s rescue and rehab activities that started in 1974 until to date. Learn while getting up close with the elephants in this center.
Elephant Conservation Center, Kuala Gandah, Pahang
Since 1974, the Malaysian Department of Wildlife & National Park team has been rescuing Asian Elephants whose habitats are being lost to cultivation and development. The elephants then are relocated to suitable habitats in Taman Negara (National Park). The centre was established in 1989 as the base for the Elephants Relocation Team, located in Temerloh of Pahang state, within the Krau Wildlife Reserve. The centre’s aim is to create public awareness and support research, which has increasingly become popular as a tourist attraction since its existence was publicized back in 1997.
The centre is open to visitors every day during common office working hours. They only closed on the 1st day of Hari Raya (which falls on the 1st of the lunar calendar month of Syawal) which varies from year to year. However, all the activities with the elephants have scheduled programs started from 1330hrs to 1530hrs (on normal weekdays, Saturdays & Sundays) and 1430hrs to 1600hrs on every Friday.
Facts about Elephants in Malaysia :
Travellers have so many choices of tours and excursions and travellers can even pre-purchase the package offered by the cruise companies. These tours would normally go by ‘Seat in Coach’ with limited places and attractions to choose from. Some coach tours will only go to malls and a couple of attraction sites for photo stops.
I carefully designed and customized my own Private Cruise Excursion for cruise travellers with a passion for introducing my city and getting a glimpse of Malaysia in general. This excursion also combines the must-see attractions within the city and the well-known Batu Caves Hindu Temple.
