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.

We went on a 30minute trek which was nice and peaceful. Not once did the manout use the sharp stick to direct the Elephant so it was a very nice experience. This place is much better and more cleaner than some other places we saw...More

The elephant rides were interesting. As a animal lover I wanted to get off immediately after the ride started, but my husband enjoyed it so much. Once in a lifetime experience. Staff were also very friendly
