Owner description: 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.

“Nice location and good staff.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 9, 2013

Easy to get to - 200 bath from Mom Tri and Kata Noi. Elephants seems to be well taken care of, and our guide was excellent and a very good photographer. 3 trips to chose between - 20, 30 and 50 minutes. We took the 30 minutes. Very nice. Felt a bit like being alone in the jungle :-)

“It was great!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 7, 2013

Went there last year by myself and met some amazing people, whilst enjoying the adventure! Elephant trek, my guide made me a hat out of a leaf, I got to ride on the elephants head at one point, lost my shoe but the guide picked it up. The fish feet always gets me.

“Really enjoyable!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 7, 2013

1 hr ride 1000b each. Arrived from Patong via tuk tuk for 700B, driver waited whilst we enjoyed our ride. Was quite quiet. At first worried as elephants were chained up around their ankles. This is to stop them walking off. They seemed to all be well looked after. Fed well and cooled down. Elephant rider who came with us (on LongLegs the 40year old female elephant) was using this large spike on a stick to keep the elephant in line. This was not used harshly which was a bit more reassuring.

Our actual ride was 1 hr long and 1000B each for 2 of us. We enjoyed a lovely hike, with beautiful views. Elephant rider jumped off and let us ride Longlegs by ourselves. Just whistled and shouted instructions to Longlegs every now and then. Really wonderful. Elephant rider was fantastic at taking lots of photo's of us on our camera. He was very artistic with his shots!

Got to feed elephant after she was washed down back at camp.

“Amazing, worth a visit”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 6, 2013

I loved it, for $1000 baht we rode an elephant for 50 minutes, paid an extra $400 baht to be picked up n dropped off to our hotel in Patong. They have free bananas for you to feed the elephants after the trip, my partner got to sit on the neck. It's a bit scary at first but never felt unsafe
