THIS IS ELEPHANT ADVENTURES

Elephant Adventures

Welcome to Langkawi Elephant Adventures

Nestled at the foothills of Mt. Machincang is the quaint Oriental Village, Langkawi. With more than 40 retail & souvenir stores, F&B outlets and activity providers, it is also home to the world-class Langkawi Cable Car and Langkawi Elephant Adventures.

Since 2006, Langkawi Elephant Adventures has provided elephant riding programs to visitors from more than 80 different countries and is one of the more sought after activities at the Oriental Village.

Elephant Rides for Langkawi Tourism

On January 26, 2006, Animal Adventures Malaysia presented elephant riding activities as a potential tourist activity for Langkawi. Following the presentation to YAB Tun Dr. Mahathir Mohamad, advisor to the Langkawi Development Authority (LADA) and the longest serving Prime Minister to Malaysia on January 26, 2006; Elephant Adventures was born and arrangements were made to relocate our elephant to Langkawi.

By April 29, 2006, Langkawi Elephant Adventures commenced operations with Lasah and two additional elephants, eventually. However, with wildlife authorities preferring its "assets" stay out of the tourist industry unlike in Thailand where elephant riding activities are as common as durian seasons (which now occur almost all-year round).

New Grounds; New Trails; New Experiences

On August 26, 2014, as a consequence to redevelopemnt at the Oriental Village, Elephant Adventures relocated to new grounds (still) within the Oriental Village. It is now located within a fabulous secondary forest that––in short––could not be better to provide guests with a significantly better experience.

At these new grounds, not only do we retain elephant riding as an activity at the Oriental Village, but the pure beauty of an existing Geoforest (albeit a young secondary forest) with noisy cicadas, natural wildlife encounters and the coolness of the forest will only enhance each visitor's experience.

Neverthess, at the time of this writing––and due to the urgent relocation needs––Elephant Adventures' new grounds are still a work-in-progress with new features to be added soon, including a coffee counter and the retuning Tiger! Tiger! Exhibit.
