Kuala Gandah Elephant Conservation Centre was established in 1989 to rescue Asian elephants whose habitats are being lost to cultivation or development. The centre also aims to raise public awareness and support research.

It is estimated that there are only 1, 200 wild Asian elephants, also known as Elephus Maximus, left in Malaysia. In the past 25 years, the staff have helped to prevent the further decrease of the elephant population by relocating over 400 wild elephants back into the wild.

I will wait for you in the arrival lobby holding a paging board showing your name. In case your ship is unfortunately directed to embark at the West Port, South Port or North Port, I and the vehicle are not allowed to enter these cargo ports due to security reasons. In this case, you will need to take the FREE shuttle bus to come to the main gate. I will meet you here.
