We were here while visiting Kenyir Lake. The Kenyir Elephant Village is located aproximately 7-8 km north of the exit to the Pengkalan Gawi Jetty (also exit to Kenyir Lake resort).
It was difficult to find information as it is recently opened.
We were the only 5 visitors the morning we visited.
You first walk a kind of canopy walk around the area where the elephants are. Exiting the canopywalk there were 2 elephants we were allowed come near to. The children loved to clap the elephant baby. After spending a good time there we continued and had a short ride on the elephant. After the ride we watch a show with the elephants seeing them in different daily activities. After that we went down to the river and watch them bathing in the river.
My daughter said that this was the best thing on our entire trip.
Only negative was that is was expensive. 100 RM for adult and 50 RM for children, and then they also charged for riding the elephant. When we visited they did not accept creditcard so you need cash.
