Description: 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.

Great experience. Feeding these giants travelling on them was fascinating. Must do in Phuket. Staff were nice a bit of tipping makes your trip more fun.

My partner and I were excited about our first Elephant Trekking experience together. After much research based off reviews from TripAdvisor as well as other sources, we found that Kok Chang was very much the most consistent with their positive reviews towards the care of their Elephants and the quality of the Trek. I wish I never stepped foot in... More

Was very excited to go ride elephants whilst in Phuket but wasn't quite what we expected. Definitely not for the faint of heart but the service was great, the transfer was cheap, the tour guide was friendly and the elephants seem happy enough and don't look to be mistreated. The track they take you on looks very interesting for the... More

The trek of the route is climbing up the hill and the elephant will take you up the hill which was quite steep. The ride may get a bit scary at first because of the slope however the elephant is a strong climber and climb effortlessly. The handler will help you to take some photo at one spot.However i felt...

I was reluctant to go on the elephant trekking at first but tried it nonetheless. I came to know about this on Trip Advisor and found out all about it on their official website. At first the 3 phone numbers provided on the website was not easy to get through. They explained it on the website saying that the mobile... More

We availed of their pick up service which is cheap, although they were like few minutes late. It was a once in a lifetime experience to ride on an elephant, but the our guide was quite mean to the elephant... he hit the elephant's head with that wooden part of the hook he was holding the entire time... so it...

We had a great time trekking through the jungle with our elephant guide and amazing elephant. She ate the entire time we climbed up the hills. Absolutely gorgeous scenery and the staff here was very great. They came and picked us up at our hotel which made it much easier to get here. The guide jumped off and took a... More
