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.

Loved this place! The elephants were very well treated and the setting was peaceful and cool (shaded). We swam with the elephants and hung out with a baby elephant (Milo). Both were great experiences. Everyone was very friendly and treated the animals well!

This is one of many memories with my Sons. The people here were generally passionate about their jobs and the elephants they take care of. Lots of history here. The trip was amazing. Thank you all of making it one of the best.
