On the Elephant Day, Maesa Elephant Camp will arrange a grand celebration for its elephants to mark the importance of this intelligent creature. ’Satoke', similar to kantoke, the traditional northern Thai style of dining, is organised into the world's largest elephant buffet - a marvellous sight to behold, as dozens upon dozens of giant pachyderms eat to their heart's content at a great banquet satoke.
