Overview

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.

The place is well organized and the location is great. The elephants seem well treated. Our guide did a great job stopping for pictures through the woods and two spots overlooking the ocean/sea. It was an enjoyable hour and would recommend it to others.

Before coming to Thailand I knew I wanted to ride an elephant. I assumed this would be fun and no harm. I was wrong. The elephants looked broken and miserable. I way they were chained up on their legs in different parts made me sad....More

The Safari is well organized. Great fun for kids. We were a little apprehensive about the seat on the elephant which can be improved. AVOID GOING ON RAINY DAYS!! It becomes muddy and while the elephant is strong, slippery mud is definitely risky. Must feed...More

Can't sat it was the most enjoyable elephant ride. The hills were too steep. The elephants were pleasant enough. Scenery was pleasant at the peak though. Appreciate the photo taking by the handlers.

So we loved the experience with the elephants but had major issues with the company. The experience is expensive, though maybe not as much as some of the others. First of all, we tried to do research before deciding to do an Elephant trekking as...More

Stop elephant trekking and riding it’s abuse! Only offer swimming walking or showers. How can certain people find elephant riding amazing. Sickening humans.

Huge elephants, nature and different experience. First we afraid a bit because it was very high from ground. You can feel strong power of elephant. If she wants to go she goes, if not stops. You can do nothing.

No you cannot do this as part of the trekking. You must book a seperate package for an elephant bath.
