Located in Kuala Gandah, the Elephant Orphanage Sanctuary in Malaysia is around one and a half hours from Kuala Lumpur and offers hours of family fun with these gentle giants. Situated in a tropical rainforest, this sanctuary run by the Malaysian Wildlife Society is home to semi-wild endemic Malaysian elephants. Here one can enjoy such activities as feeding, bathing and even riding atop elephants as you journey through the jungle with a mahout guide. Those in search of a luxurious Kuala Lumpur hotel when on holiday can stay at Grand Millennium Kuala Lumpur. This centrally located hotel in Bukit Bintang is ideally within easy reach of many of the city’s main shopping venues.
