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.

Whilst I've had lots of stick after posting a picture from people who dislike the use of elephants for tourist attractions, I have to say it was a lovely and almost emotional experience, they are beautiful intelligent animals and it made for a fantastic...

Firstly , we booked online the night before for 09:30 in the morning which I thought might be cutting it fine but I received a mail back within 10 minutes confirming the booking .
