To gain a better understanding of the country, visit the Kuala Gandah Elephant Orphanage Sanctuary in Pahang. Wild elephants in Malaysia are known to travel well over four thousand miles during a single year and together with the increasing human population it has led to a serious human-elephant conflict that results in deaths on both sides. Often, adult elephants are killed leaving orphan calves alone and vulnerable. The sanctuary was established in 1989 by the Department of Wildlife and National Parks to protect the pachyderms. The journey to get here from Kuala Lumpur can take up to two and a half hours.
Kuala Gandah Elephant Sanctuary gives visitors a chance to learn about these displaced beasts. The elephants are also taken down to the river for bathing, an activity that guests are able to participate in. Only a mere one thousand two hundred of these wild Asian Elephants are believed to exist in the jungles of Malaysia and the orphanage is the only conservation centre that works to rehabilitate and release these displaced pachyderms back into their natural habitat.
