Deerland Park is a privately owned and managed deer park with some 30 Indonesian deer (Cervus Timorensis). Visitors to the park have a chance to hand-feed these gentle creatures and observe their behaviour at close hand.

Locating at Bukit Rengit, 10 minites drives from Kuala Gandah Elephants Centre, Deerland Park is interesting and fascinating place 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.

This popular nature attraction, which is located on a 4-hectare site at the heart of the still pristine and verdant Krau Forest Reserve is divided into two attractions - The Deerland Animal World and the Deerland Nature Park.

The Deerland Animal World keeps a variety of wildlife in an environment that replicates their actual habitat. Visitors can get up close to the animals, which include ostriches, and the Malayan sun bear (Helarctos Malayanus). A 200-metre long wooden walkway with an observation tower at Bukit Rengit facilitates a tour of the area.

Other attractions in the 4-hectare park include ostriches and a sun-bear (Helarctos Malayanus) named Muda.
It also offers visitors more activities to partake, including camping, herb identification tour (about 40 species of rainforest herbal plants), jungle trekking, ‘flying fox’ cable facility, jungle cooking demonstration, jungle survival, and bird watching, among others.
