Kuala Gandah Elephant Conservation Centre


Located about 200 kilometres away from Kuala Lumpur, the Kuala Gandah Elephant Conservation Centre is situated within the Krau Wildlife Reserve. It was established in 1989 under the Malaysian Department of Wildlife and National Parks, and manned by the Elephant Capture and Translocation Unit.


The sanctuary is a translocation centre for rogue and orphan elephants that are found lost and wandering by the relocations team. To date, over 400 wild elephants have been relocated back into the wild, such as to Taman Negara (National Park). Besides that, the centre also aims to educate the public and raise public awareness and support on the importance of elephant conservation.


The Kuala Gandah Elephant Conservation Centre is open daily from 10:30 am to about 4:00 pm and closed on major public holidays. Before they start their tour of the centre, visitors will be shown a video, which provide a better understanding of the work conducted at the centre and the job carried out by the rangers when they are out in the field conducting wild elephant’s translocation projects.


After the video presentation, visitors will have a chance to get up close and personal with these gentle giants. Visitors can also witness feeding and bathing of the elephants in the nearby river, which is only possible if water levels are high enough. 


Be prepared to get wet as the playful baby elephants love to squirt water onto everyone from their trunks. It’s definitely a memorable experience for every visitor, especially children. 


The Kuala Gandah Elephant Conservation Centre has increasingly become a popular tourist attraction due to its unique operations and excellent word of mouth. It is truly a destination not to be missed and certainly a worthy entry into every visitor’s itinerary. Once having visited the centre, it is easy to see that this is not just a conservation effort but a sanctuary of love.
