We had a good time meeting, feeding and riding the elephants. It was probably a one time activity, but I’m glad we did it. The hotel transfer was very helpful as well. They were friendly and took lots of photos for us.More

Is there a private tour available from Phuket Cruise Terminal to the KokChang Safari Elephant Trekking - Chalong Highlands? What would the cost be? Looking for a trip to the Elephant Camp and for us to stay there for a couple hours and return to Cruise Terminal. How long is the trip from Phuket Cruise Terminal to this Eelephant Camp (each way)? Thank you in advance.

You can organise your own transfer. To me Kok Chang lost its appeal when they lost their monkeys, now they are just one of many (except for their free elephant food). That plus there are the issues about (the lack of) animal friendlyness. Time from Patong would be around 30 minutes, from Ao Makham a bit more, both are possible cruise terminals.
