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.

Great elephant tour with very friendly staff. The animals were sheltered and cooled down in the pond when needed. Tour guides took great photos and our kids loved the journey. The guides were lovely to the kids picking then flowers and rubber as we went along the chat. Nicest company we saw in the kata area :-)

We visited in August 2013 and did the 50 minute trek, and we were not disappointed! The elephants seem well cared for, the property is large and is also a rubber farm. Our elephant was amazing! She had a mind of her own, and kept stopping to poke around and different things, and the rider was really patient with her, let her do what she wanted, just kept her on track if she decided to wander. He let me ride behind her ears too (really strange experience!) while he got about 100 photos of us!

The scenery was beautiful, amazing views of surrounding beaches and ocean, plenty of photo opportunities too. At the and of the ride, we were able to help hose our elephant down to cool her off and feed her bananas, they only ask for a donation :)

overall wonderful experience and would definitely recommend Kok Chang!

Was a beautiful day, we got the 50 minute ride for 1000 baht. About 30$ Australian it was magnifigsent, the tour gide took lots of great photos without being asked, he would give commands and the trained elephant would pose, was impresive with the views of the ocean on the last half of the walking trail and I got to ride on its head for the last 10minutes we really enjoyed our trek! Was an exsperence we will never forget!!

Absolutely loved visiting this park, the elephants were well treated and you got to feed them bananas and take pictures for no extra charge!

Feeding our elephants was definitely one of the highlights of my trip in Thailand, if you ever visit you must see an elephant!

They offer drop-off and pick-up services, however our pick-up wasn't very reliable and we had to call them.
