Tour Description:

The Kuala Gandah Elephant Sanctuary is a home for elephants that suffer from losing their habitats to development. Here, elephants are rehabilitated and translocated. The team dedicates its time and efforts towards locating, subduing and translocating these poor elephants. As of now, over 700 Asian elephants have been rescued by the sanctuary, and there has been a reduction in the population decline. The sanctuary also carries out public awareness activities to educate the Malaysian public on the situation that development is causing for these elephants.

Elephants and calves, some of which are orphans, call this sanctuary their temporary home. Besides undergoing rehabilitation so that they are suitable enough to be released back into the wild, they are also trained in aiding the team in their translocating efforts. Visitors are invited to purchase some bananas or sugarcanes to feed to the elephants, and one can also partake in the calf-bathing activity where you will bathe in a river with baby elephants.

Just a slight distance away from the sanctuary lies an Orang Asli village. The Che Wong are the inhabitants of this village, and they are one of the nineteen original Orang Asli groups that reside in Peninsular Malaysia. Their humble homes are usually made of Nipah, bamboo, rattan or wood. Although the villagers are shy, they are not averse to making friends with friendly and respectful visitors. The village is a peaceful one that sits by the jungle, which is where the Che Wong obtains most of their resources.

The Flying Fox will be one of the more adrenaline-pumping activities in this package. The Flying Fox is an activity where you zip-line down the incline of Jeram Besu river on a pulley suspended on a cable. This method of transportation was used in history as a means to get goods or people from one place to another, usually in locations that are harder to cross by land. Now, the activity of zip-lining is a popular activity that can be found at outdoor adventure camps or resorts and is usually called Flying Fox.

This activity does not require you to put in much work. All you would need to do is get up onto the stage that is attached to a tall tree by the riverside. There, you will go through the zip-lining preparations. When you’re ready, just lift your legs and let gravity do the rest of the work for you. Try screaming or laughing on the way down; it makes the activity much more fun to experience! Besides the Flying Fox, you will also attempt abseiling.

Abseiling is a technique whereby one descends a steep, vertical wall or cliff using equipment like a harness, safety rope and gloves. The name “abseiling” comes from the German word abseilen that mean “to rope down”. Prepare for your turn by putting on your abseiling gear, listening to a briefing and watching a live demonstration from an experienced abseiler. Once you’re ready, climb your way up to the top of the wall via a ladder, and start descending down 3 stories’ worth of wall!
