About Deerland

In the serene and untouched natural environment, you get a chance to interact with the smart yet humble deer. Apart from learning more about them, you also get a chance to feed and stroke the deer. Apart from that, there’s also ostrich, sun bear, snake and much more to keep you amused. Other attractions include a dedicated area to cultivate herbs and spices. There are over 40 species of herbs including the ever famous Tongkat Ali which is believed to have medicinal properties. There is also knotted rope used to swing across the river by the adventurous heart. If not, enjoy the wooden walkway leading up to an observation tower at Bukit Rengit.  Overall, Deerland Park is a great place to visit. A trip to this petting park is an opportunity for animal lovers to get up-close and personal with deers as well as a variety of animals such as Golden Pheasant, Bengal Cat, Rabbits, Parakeets, Phytons and few others.

About Dept. Wildlife and National Parks (DWNP)

The centre is the base for the Elephant Unit, which began the elephant translocation programme in 1974.  The only one of its kind in Malaysia, the team is dedicated to locating, subduing and then translocate problem elephants from areas where their habitats are being encroached by development. These elephants are then relocated to safer habitats including Taman Negara National Park. Over the past 30 years, this team has helped to resolve human-elephants conflicts and minimised the economic losses caused by such conflicts by relocating more than 700 wild
