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.

This was a fantastic experience and before I go into any detail - the elephants appeared to be treated wonderfully! We booked online in advance before arriving in Thailand. The Kok Chang Safari team was very communicative via email and confirmed that the hotel we were at was within their range for complimentary van shuttle. Their driver arrived at our... More

Had good shuttle/taxi service from the hotel. The elephants are treated kindly- don't believe the BS some people put on here about "well, the elephants seem happy, but maybe they aren't, so I'll rate it 2 stars". These elephants are well-loved and well-taken care of - they get baths after every trip to cool off and hey have a play... More

The best excursion we went on the elephants was all happy and did not look badly treated at all. This is a must go and experience it.

I was expecting there to be lots of people & the trek to be en masse in a line...not the case at all! We were picked up from our hotel & taken directly to the venue - thankfully no stopping at a monkey sanctuary or random gift shop on the way. We paid at the entrance & within 5 minutes... More

This was always on my bucket list and I can't believe I crossed it off. We did the half hour trek because of our one year old daughter, and we were glad we did. It started to get hot, and I could tell she enjoyed doing this. Definitely worth the extra money to feed the elephants.

What a great experience! We were very pleasantly surprised by what we saw - the elephants are such wonderful and magnificent animals. They live in a camp with shelters, full food containers and even have a pool to cool off. The camp is behind the main area and elephants walk freely there. The ones in the front shelter are preparing... More

They picked us up from our hotel in a wagon. Didn't seem safe at all, I felt pretty uncomfortable. We arrived at the destination and were welcomed by their front of house staff. The girls were really friendly. It went a bit downhill when I saw the baby elephant swaying back and forth, chained up. I had paid at this... More

We had a good trek trough the forest on Elephant. The animals seemed well maintained and none of them was looking exhausted or treated badly.
