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.

It's clean , friendly staff , well managed. Nice experience. Take the ,30 min tour with Sea view even if a little pricey. It's an experience you will remember if thus is not something you do normally 😀.

I'm glad we did this! The elephants are well cared for and we enjoyed feeding them fruit and sugarcane. The seat on the elephant made me nervous with our toddler, but we were able to keep her secure. Definitely a once in a lifetime experience!

Enjoyed centrally located tour. Friendly staff could improve communication skills. NOT crowded with tourists so wait time is minimal. Personal experience not hoarded like cattle as in most tours.
