Experience the Wild Nature of Ulu Muda
Travel to the depths of the tropical rainforest to encounter the herds of wild Asian elephants that roam in the jungle. You will be in the company of an outstanding guide and conservationist and staying at a unique base, Earthlodge: a remote ecolodge, only accessible by boat, and nestled among the high trees on the bank of a river. Forget about TV, Wifi. This is the real thing to get back in touch with nature and enjoy the abundant wildlife, such as elephants, big cats, deer, wild boar.
Earthlodge supports the conservation of Malaysian elephants, but they are best observed at a distance and with an expert guide, as you can see from this elephant encounter by MEME (Management & Ecology of Malayian Elephants).

“A welcome comfort amidst the raw jungle. Great place to rest your feet after a long day of trailblazing, or just stay there and enjoy the jungle residents who are actually quite close by.” – Jason Nicholas
