Kuala Gandah Elephant Sanctuary
Jenderak Seladang & Sambar Deer Sanctuary Tekam Plantation Resort

Kuala Gandah Elephant Sanctuary
The elephant sanctuary is managed by the Malaysian Department of Wildlife and National Parks. Here it offers visitors a hands-on introduction to the largest mammal on earth. Here 'worker elephants are trained to help "guide and mother' others during the relocation process to National Park wildlife sanctuaries. Visitors are invited to help bath them in the shallow river or ride them. The juniors have sense of humour, so watch out for a dunking as you try to clamber up their backs!

The best way to visit is to take a day tour that combines a visit to the famous Hindu cave temple of Batu Caves and the elephant sanctuary.

Jenderak Seladang and Sambar Deer Sanctuary
An endangered species, the Seladang or gaur (bos gaurus hubbaki) is the largest of the true cattle and even bigger than the American bison. Since the natural habitat of these nocturnal animals is in the virgin jungles, the chance to see a full herd at close range in broad daylight is a great treat. Kept here for breeding, the seladangs graze in large pens, each with a male, several females and a few youngsters. Each seladang is given a name, and should it fancy your voice, it'll answer with a baritone 'moo' when you call. Here also is the Sambar Deer sanctuary.
Open every day between 9.00am and 4.00pm. Sunday closed.
