Elephant Trekking Koh Chang – Companies and Prices

Ban Kwan Chang Koh Chang Elephant Trekking

Koh Chang means elephant (chang) island (koh), but this is because of its shape and size rather than wild herds living in the jungle. Nonetheless, there are now 6 elephant camps where you can ride on them, swim with them and feed them and it is a fun way to spend a morning or an afternoon, with children especially well looked after by the mahouts. Cost is standard at 850bt for 1 hour and 1,300bt for the two hour trek which includes the swimming. Transfer, water, fruit and a drink afterwards are included. Children under 10 are 500bt and 650bt respectively, under 3 are free.

Why not Contact Us and we will organise everything for you, nothing for you do other than exchange a few emails, so we know exactly the date, time, numbers and so on, then pay when when you get here. We will only use our trusted recommendation, Ban Kwan Chang, unless you state otherwise.
