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.

would have been much better had there been inbuilt umbrellas on the seats instead of trying to open an unbrella whenever it rained. The walk was fun but i felt it was too steep for the elephants who moved very slowly.

Why would anyone want to ride an elephant when you know how they make them domesticated so you can ride them, what do you think this stick these guys hold with the big metal hook is for? Elephant chained up before you get on to ride them. Shaking there heads wildly from side to side clearly in emotional distress. Then... More

The elephant ride is a unique experience in Phuket. My kids loved it. Its a 45 minute experience. Though I paid for two big elephants, but due to shortage of time, I was offered one small elephant to ride on which my wife and my daughter gladly accepted. They cost approx USD 50 per elephant. They take you to a... More

This has got to be cruelty to large animals as they do not ask for this. Baby elephant chained up and moving his head side to side, you have to buy food costing 100 baht to feed and take pictures, they are starved and treated with no respect. Riding on the big elephants, before you do this do research onto... More

You are visited to another elephant camp, Not Kok Chang Safari. Because at Kok Chang Safari no have baby elephant and food (banana) for elephant cost 60 Bath. And price for elephant trekking at Kok Chang Safari are 600, 800 and 1,000 Bath ,Not 2,500 Bath. Your review damage prejudice the Kok Chang safari. More

If you have a connection with animals of any kind dont miss this. You will discover that the elephants are actually humans in disguise and the baby one (3YO) outside will want to kiss you and cries if you dont take him home with you

This is a must do activity if you ever visit Phuket. I was a little bit concerned about to do trekking on an elephant but still I enjoyed with the overall experience. Take picture with the baby elephants, they so cute!!
