Deerland Park deer sanctuary is situated in Bukit Rengit, Lanchang, about 140 km from Kuantan. It’s a 2 hours drive from Kuala Lumpur or an hour from Genting Highlands. It is interesting and fascinating during the deer-feeding session as you can touch the wild animals that have been tamed and trained to allow human to go near the deers and touch them.
The park’s Animal World offers other attractions such as peacocks, ostriches and a sunbear.
Across the Deer sanctuary, Nature Garden is on an elevated walkway and awesome sight with its varieties of herbs and plants such as Tongkat Ali (traditional Viagra), Kacip Fatimah and 40 other medicinal herbs which can be found in rainforests. Visitors can also go camping or join a guided tour to learn basic jungle survival skills.
