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

I recently visited Kuala Gandha Elephant sanctuary and read about Deerland which is only 3 Kms from KG sanctuary. There is a RM 10 entrance fee which includes bowl of feed for the deers and also some carrot strips for the rabbits. My kids (4 yr old and 1 yr old) did enjoy all that. The entire round of Deerland... More

Entrance fee MYR10 and provided a bowl of longbeans for you feed those deers. A small place with small quantity of deers and species. Not worth to visit if you are in very small group and not driving. 1-2 hours duration.

deer feeding is the main attraction. there are also a few other deer species within the park along with several other animals. this park could be better maintained and more species of animals for educational purposes. if you are on a tour to visit the nearby elephant sanctuary, this is a nice additional visit if time allows.
