Experience the countryside on the way to the Elephant Sanctuary.
This tour will take you to visit an Elephant Sanctuary to learn how a team of dedicated men and women are going about in their efforts to protect the Elephants who are threatened with mankind's intrusion into their natural habitat. Then you get to hand-feed the elephants and get to touch their trunk. Finally, care for a bath with an elephant in the stream?
Enroute we shall visit the Batu Caves.
After we meet at your hotel lobby at 10:00 am, we shall head towards the mountain regions of the country and take a 1. 5 hours drive to the Elephant Sanctuary where you will learn about the Conservation efforts. Enroute we will visit Batu Caves.
Just before we have our lunch, we will visit a nearby Deerland where you will get to feed the deers, ostrich and a chance to touch and handle a python snake. lf you don't wish to touch a snake, you can always play with the hedgehogs or the lizards. :)
You will watch a documentary video detailing the work of the Team of Elephant Rescue staff. You then hand-feed and watch the elephant "mahouts" explain and show you the training which the Elephants have undergone to enable them to assist in the Elephant Rescue and Relocation work.
