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

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
