Elephant Trekking

elephant-trekking-phuket elephant-trekking-phuket-2

Traditionally employed as working animals within the logging industry, the Asian Elephant is a national symbol, and has long been valued in Thailand for its enormous strength, ability to master the jungle’s terrain, and its trainability.

Now you can encounter these gentle giants up close, with the opportunity to take a trek through the jungle in traditional style – on the back of an Asian Elephant!

Kind & Friendly Camp

Of the many possible places to elephant trek scattered throughout Phuket, Ocean Geo have selected this camp specifically because of the care and attention they show to their animals, which are led by voice commands, not by stick. In addition, guides are friendly, they are happy to help and take photos and the camp is less commercialised - the flat-rate pricing policy (same price for both tourists and locals) is honest, with no hidden charges, e.g. for a photo with a baby elephant.

Trek Options

Three circular trekking trails are available – either 20 minutes, 30 minutes, or 50 minutes, and all routes provide the opportunity to see the beautiful panoramas of Phuket’s west coast beaches. The 50 minute trek takes you a little further east, giving you the best views across the southern region of Phuket Island, including Chalong, Phuket Town and the islands to the east.
