Kok Chang Safari would have to be one of the best elephant trek's we have been on during all of our travels to Phuket.
All the animals seem well cared for, the staff are very helpful and friendly and the setting is beautiful. There are bananas available at the center to feed the elephants while taking some great photos and you just leave a donation in the box for them.
There are also 2 white palmed gibbons at Kok Chang called Charley and Lum Yai, however they are both now in a huge enclosure due to being at an age where they could be a danger to people or to themselves. Their new home is lovely with lots of room to swing around on their ropes and play.
One of the highlights of the elephant trek, besides the fantastic views is once you are at the top of the hill you can ride down sitting on the elephants head if you want. It was so exciting sitting on her head, feet hooked behind her ears for balance and enjoying the ride back down.
Your mahout will also take lots of photos of your trek, so just hand him your camera.
There is also a great bar at the centre, so after your trek you can buy water, fruit shakes, beer etc at very cheap prices.
This is also a perfect spot to sit and watch a beautiful Phuket Sunset!
Prices for the one hour elephant trek to the summit are 1000baht per adult. This is the one we would highly recommend!
There is also a half hour trek for 800baht, a 20 minute trek for 600baht, with 50% off for children 4 - 11 years of age and children under 4 are free.
Money for the elephant trek is paid directly to the centre.
Kok Chang Safari have also started doing complimentary pickups from Karon, Kata or Nai Harn and 100baht for return transfers from Patong.
