I wanted to see the elephants but without transport it was all too hard so I booked on a "Jumbo Tour" from Chinatown - though I am sure you can book anywhere in KL.

The tour left KL at 9.00am and we got back about 6.00pm. There were only 6 of us on the tour and a couple asked if they could be dropped off at Batu Caves on the way home and the driver was great and drove them right to the caves and gave instructions in how to get back to Chinatown.

The tour took us to Deerland, and the Elephant Conservation Centre, lunch was included (very nice it was too!)

I love getting up close to animals and at Deerland; you can feed the deer, the sun bears, handle the pythons, and hedgehogs, lorikeets will sit on your shoulder (they may bite your ear) - an all round up close and personal encounter with lots of animals.

Great for children....

This wasn't a cheap tour - about $140 from memory but it was a great day out. For a family it would probably be cheaper to hire a car and do Deerland & Elephants by yourself.

Directions: I booked through my hotel but the tour is run through Han Travel
