After visiting the Elephant sanctuary in Kuala Gandah, we were a bit disappointed. On the way back we spotted a big road sign pointing towards Deerland. With absolutely no expectations we arrived at the entrance, but what a nice family run place it is. We fed the deers, we spotted a few baby hedgehog's, petted a few giant snakes and... More

We decided to stop and have a look at Deerland on the way to the Elephant Sanctuary in Kuala Gandah. This is very close, approximately 10 minutes before the Elephant Sanctuary. I had passed the sign before, as had other friends who had made this trip but nobody had been. We were glad we had made the stop. Not an... More

About a dozen sleepy deer in an enclosure waiting for you to feed them. Couple of Python enclosures, cage of budgies, hedge- hogs (only good hedge-hogs are flat ones!!!

Deerland Park is roughly about 1hour 45minutes drive from genting/awana and is situated near Kuala Gandah Elephant Sanctuary. We were hoping to see the roaming deer after the elephants but it turns out that they are closed on Fridays. Really a disappointment since we travelled all the way. The brochure never stated opening times so we only had to settle... More

"Deerland Park" is a one hour and forty-five minutes drive from Kuala Lumpur. If you were planning to visit Kuala Gandah Elephant Sanctuary, you should do a short detour to this place. A small entrance fee is charged to visitors, and you will be given a coupon for deer feed. (There were two of us and we paid RM 12).... More

I have no idea why would anyone underrate this place!???? It is a privately owned place and has NO fund from the government. A Malaysian man and his children who care about animals decided to have this small place. How often do you have the chance to feed a deer and touch it? How often do you have the chance... More

While I don't believe that animals should be caged, I still did enjoy my time here. The animals here look less stressed than those at the National Zoo near Kuala Lumpur. The owner, Mr. Abdullah, seems very passionate about his animals and the staff are local boys who also seem to be fond of them.

I stopped off here on a tour on my way to the equally awful elephant "sanctuary" . Whilst the deers and small rabbits seem quite happy and well cared for there are other very miserable looking animals all caged with barely any space or company. The worst thing is the sad bears and at the end they have over fed... More

Stopped off here for an hour during a fantastic Viator-booked private tour to the elephant orphanage very close by (which also took in Batu Caves and local silk painting which was interesting, and local lunch.) The private tour guide, Michael, (who was brilliant the whole day) paid the entrance fee out of the fee we'd already paid (which was expensive... More

We arrived to Deerland on the way from elephant sanctuary (2 km from it). It was a bit of a strange experience. A zoo keeper gave us a bowl with food to feed a group of deers in their pen and an ostrich. There were also some other type of tame deers, including a tiny mouse deer. The keeper also... More
