Owner description: 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 picked this elephant trekking because it was well rated in books and on TripAdvisor. The only thing that worried us was the reviews concerning a guide who mistreated his elephant. We told the person at the counter that we didn't want this guide (and indeed a older looking guide left and another came in). We had 4 elephants, and... More

Our experience echoes that of many other reviewers on TripAdvisor. Fairly basic ride on an elephant through jungle with views across Kata. Our ‘driver’ didn’t speak English so the opportunity to ask questions and learn something was zero. The elephants appear OK and we saw no signs of mistreatment; control was exerted by voice only. The ride itself was slow... More

Outstanding adventure. My wife and I loved the elephant rides through the jungle . Plenty of opportunities for photos . The scenery is breathtaking . The guide also takes photos of you on your own camera for a small fee.Well worth a visit.

We spent 4 days and three nights on this tour. It was fantastic, I would now only spend 1 night in both camps as 2 nights at the lake is too long. During the day the day trippers arrive and you lose access to your canoe and there is not a lot to do. The trip to get to the... More

Amazing experience with the elephants! You will be able to choose various length - 30min/ 45min/ 60min Price varies on the time. We were told that 60min trekking will be able to go on top of the mountain to see the overview of the island, but after all this wasn't the case. 60min was just walking longer around the area...

My partner and I did the 30min elephant ride, which was perfect. We went uphill into the jungle. The view from the top of the mountain was stunning and overlooked Kata Beach. The guides were very friendly and took so many photos for us on our phones / cameras etc - nothing was too much trouble! We even had the... More

I think one good think in this place is that there are only elephants. No stupid monkey shows or other animals. You need book them directly and they have cars to pick you up from hotel. When you have finished you trekking, car will take you back to hotel when car is available. There is small bar with reasonable prices... More

If you really want to ride elephants, it seems like this place is above average from the research I've done. I'm not sure what I expected, but I found it very sad that the elephants are chained up by their feet and just standing there with the large carts on their backs. The good thing was that the workers seemed... More
