  • Book through the website. Discount 200 baht per person + free shuttle service from the hotel to the Safari and back to the hotel. It is very convenient. The walk itself was interesting, with the elephant treated gently, do not beat him. Enjoy views from two lookouts. After the walk was able to observe how the elephant wash and feed him (basket of bananas 60 baht, a bigger basket with various goodies for elephant-100 Baht happy as children

  • In one of the last days in Phuket, decided that can't go, not while riding on elephants. Chose between this place and the Elephant Sanctuary, but in the latter the prices begin from 3000 baht per person, so we decided to choose Kok Chang (it's called). If you order on the website, you can get a discount of 200 baht per person. As a result, one ticket cost us 2000 baht. You can pick up or you can come on their own, as did we. Come by the time you do not need to, most importantly, time to go to 17.30. We took a trip in 50 minutes. March dzhkngljam, slide on the washed out road. I can't say that it was scary, but exciting-exactly. With animal good obrpshhajutsja, I did not see any traces of ill-treatment. After each trip they are fed and washed after the mud. In General, I recommend!

  • This was truly a great experience. We chose Kok Chang because we have heard that the elephants are treated well. No abuse. I wanted to take Chicha home with me. We had great views of the ocean. There ...  more »

  • We were very excited to get to ride / interact with elephants up close however we ended up feeling sick and uneasy after this horror show! This place is awful. The elephant we road on had multiple massive open wounds which were bleeding / oozing with puss. This poor animal needs medical attention. The guide kept beating the elephant for no reason in the open wound. This was just hell. We paid for a 50 min trek and he only gave us 20 minutes but at that point we didn't care and wanted out asap. Don't go to this place the animals are not taken care of. We went to another place called Khaosok Discovery Elephant Park this place was way better the elephants were in good shape and they didn't beat them either.
  • Best elephant strolling ever!!!! You need to go if you are visiting phuket... you can stroll on them and even feed them
  • Well managed and efficient, came to pick us within an hour of making the booking. Also elephants seemed well cared for.
  • It was ok good for a look. Maybe you can even find something...
  • Elephants are amazing but stuff is crazy!!! In time we were feeding animals one stupid man came to small elephant and shouted him from slingshot!!! This elephant just stayed!!! This man a little bit fat, have a beard and speak Russian a little bit. Let him now who is he!!!
