Kok Chang Elephant Trekking Safari in set on a beautiful ocean viewpoint...

Kok Chang Elephant Trekking Safari in set on a beautiful ocean viewpoint where the dense tropical jungle overlooks Kata Noi Bay. We offer various jungle routes riding on these Majestic animals from 20 minutes, or to the summit on 30 minute and 1 hour treks. Fully trained and experienced guide handlers will take you and your family through the dense tropical forest along paths and trails from the southwest corner of the beautiful Phuket island stopping at scenic beauty for photographs along the way. Get lucky and sit on the elephants neck. Children and adults are encouraged to stop by the banana kiosk to observe and feed the Elephants, there is no charge. This is a great photo opportunity and you can even touch the elephants trunk.

This was always on my bucket list and I can't believe I crossed it off. We did the half hour trek because of our one year old daughter, and we were glad we did. It started to get hot, and I could tell she enjoyed doing this. Definitely worth the extra money to feed the elephants.

They live in a camp with shelters, full food containers and even have a pool to cool off. The camp is behind the main area and elephants walk freely there. The ones in the front shelter are preparing... More

They picked us up from our hotel in a wagon. Didn't seem safe at all, I felt pretty uncomfortable. We arrived at the destination and were welcomed by their front of house staff. The girls were really friendly. It went a bit downhill when I saw the baby elephant swaying back and forth, chained up. I had paid at this... More

We had a good trek trough the forest on Elephant. The animals seemed well maintained and none of them was looking exhausted or treated badly.

We had booked directly via internet hassle free. No cash required up front and free pick up and drop off from our hotel on Karon Beach. Please be mindful that if booking directly, they only accept cash payment on arrival at safari. Pick up was on time and in a clean a/c vehicle for a 15 minute transfer. Our elephant... More

The elephant ride was enjoyable and a good experience to see a jungle. Felt sorry for them though as once we got off, another group went on, however, it seemed they were well looked after. Our teenager kids enjoyed it as well.

If you ask for it, they let you sit on the head of the elephant and guide it. Intermittent taps with left foot means go left and vice versa... Our guide tried to sell us necklaces from elephant teeth and ivory during the tour claiming that the profits go towards elephants. Please do not buy from these items as elephants... More
