This might be a silly question, so, please excuse me!
Normally, we only book hotels and transport in advance, but other than setting out a general and flexible itinerary of our travel plans, we don't usually book any day tours to sights and attractions until we reach our destination (usually book day tours via the hotel).
For the reputable elephant camps like Patara Elephant Farm and Elephant Nature Park (and other well-rated ones in Chiang Mai), would it be a bad idea to leave it until we arrive in Chiang Mai before we make reservations? Our trip would be in mid-January, which I realise is peak season as well.
Would these elephant camps have some sort of allocations for those choosing to book via their hotel (and pretty much close to the day we want to go)?
Thanks for any advice and help!
