Elephant Trekking Phuket

The main road from Nai Harn, where "Sapphire Villa" are located, to Kata is the most renowned area for elephant trekking safaris, with several companies being located on either side of the road. All safaris offer similar packages, and if you would just like to visit the elephants, and aren't as ambitious as to trek through the forest, you are always welcome to purchase a basket of fruit and feed the elephants a treat. We recommend two tried and tested safaris: Phuchada Safari (about 5 minutes from "Sapphire Villa") and Kok Chang Safari, located a little further along the same road.
PHUCHADA SAFARI:
Located within a few minutes drive from "Sapphire Villa", Phuchada Safari is a family run business, ensuring safety and comfort, offering a range of times for Elephant Trekking adventures.
Phuchada Safari can pick you up from "Sapphire Villa", and you have the option to experience just your Elephant Safari and visit their baby elephant, or combine it with one or more of the other activities at the Safari, such as the Snake Show, Monkey Show, Fish Farm or ATV Quad Biking (Details of all activities are giving under their respective headings).

Price:
30 minutes: 800 baht
45 minutes: 1,000 baht
60 minutes: 1,300 baht

Discounted rates are given for small children.

KOH CHANG ELEPHANT SAFARI:
