Elephant Trekking

Elephant trekking

Elephant trekking can be a memorable experience not to be missed during your stay in Phuket, especially for the kids. There are numerous elephant camps around Phuket that provide an opportunity to ride on an elephant along a trail through jungle and rubber plantations.

Most of these elephant safaris are relatively short, 30 minutes to 1 hour, though you do get to take in a lot of the natural surroundings on your way, and so most elephant treks will also include a ride on bamboo rafts or buffalo cart as part of the tour. There is also usually an elephant show in which trained elephants perform various tasks such as painting or scoring penalities against a human goalkeeper.
