Elephant Riding in Malaysia

YES! THERE ARE ELEPHANTS IN MALAYSIA

The elephants found in Malaysia are of the Asian variety (Elephas maximus), the other being the African species (Africana loxodonta).

Once paraded in royal processions, laboured in farms, used in transportation and, even, symbols of wealth, the elephant lost its place in Malaysia's cultural heritage sometime after World War II.

Once found throughout the country, there are fewer than 1,200-1,500 wild Asian elephants in the country in as few as seven Malaysian states. Additionally, there may be fewer than 50 elephants in captive programs around the country.

Although elephant riding is more synonymous with Thailand, our neighbours to the north, and as far west as India, elephant is nevertheless available in Malaysia at several locations including Langkawi, Malacca and Kuala Gandah.
