Kenyir Elephant Village (KEV) is a new tourist attraction in Terengganu. Located at Temelong River, this is where seven baby and adult elephants call home.
Known as the rainforest’s largest and most magnificent creatures, they really amaze visitors not only with their size but also intelligence.
These elephants live in a natural environment. However, visitors to KEV have the opportunity to ride, feed and play with these animals, under the watchful eyes of mahouts.
Also known as Kenyir Elephant Camp, KEV was established by the Elephant Management Unit under the authority of the Department of Wildlife and National Parks, the Central Terengganu Development Authority (KETENGAH) and the Terengganu State Government.
This elephant camp is the foremost authority on elephant translocation to ensure a healthy elephant population and reduce human-elephant conflict.
