From the deers to the hedgehogs & snakes, & all the other animals - it was a fun experience for all of us. Would... More

Recently i had the opportunity to actually drop in as this was one of the itinerary of the meet. I heard many things about it before especially the infamous 'sun bear' incident reported widely by the NGOs. Once inside i was... More

Small zoo that you can visit nearby the elephant sanctuary. Gives children the chance to see and feed Indonesian deer, a chance to hold a hedgehog, rabbit and even a python. The whole thing can be visited in about 30 minutes so it is only a place to visit if you are doing something else like the elephant sanctuary nearby.

This is by far one of the highlights of our day trip to Lanchang with the main intention to visit the Elephant Sanctuary. As we arrived too early for the feeding time at the sanctuary, we decide to divert and stop by here. We did not expect much...but it was lovely. We were greeted by so many deers...both babies and...

Loved the Rain Forest walk, the deer feeding, rabbits, snakes, guinea pigs, chickens, etc. Had the chance to hold the 45kg white python which I thought I would never do. Loved it and the staff were so friendly. Our thanks to everyone,

I loved our visit to Deerland. I had no idea what to expect, having been told by our tour guide, Michael, that it was a stop before the elephant sanctuary. Turned out it was basically a petting zoo, with animals such as deer, rabbits, snakes, guinea pigs, chickens, etc. The keepers were young and extremely friendly. They clearly loved the... More

The deers were super cute. Got lots of different photos with them. I stayed far away from the giant snakes. My partner had a photo with them wrapped around him. Also saw lizards and hedgehoges and some birds and chipmunks. Good little visit. Great photos

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
