Elephant SanctuaryTemerloh, Kuala lumpur, Malaysia
AboutThe elephant sanctuary is located near Lanchang (there is a small road heading north, just before a BP station), then left at the next intersection. From this point on just head due north and there are enough signposts to guide you. It's in the center of Peninsular Malaysia, about 150 km or no more than 2 hours drive from Kuala Lumpur. The sanctuary is managed by the Malaysian Department of Wildlife and National Parks.
This centre was established in 1989. It offers visitors a hands-on introduction to the largest mammal on earth. Worker elephants are trained to help "guide and mother' others during the relocation process to National Park wildlife sanctuaries. The juniors have a sense of humor, so watch out for a dunking as you try to clamber up their backs!
