Glamping is short for glamorous camping. It is a way to experience and be exposed to the great outdoors while having all amenities and comforts you can ask for. It is, to say the least, luxury camping.
Glamping truly originated in the early 1900′s, with the popularization of the safari. The word safari is an Arabic verb meaning “to make a journey” and an entire industry was created to cater to the needs of the demanding European and American travelers, looking to bag a trophy and experience adventure in the wilds of Africa. Naturally, the wealthy travelers weren’t eager to part with the creature comforts of home, and instead stayed in luxurious canvas tent lodgings. These tents were fully furnished with beds, luxurious bedding, Persian rugs, and antiques, and were also fully staffed with chefs, guides, porters and butlers.
A new trend of glamping has emerged in many countries, including the US, with luxury camping resorts, safari camps, eco-resorts, and campgrounds offering every amenity imaginable. Who says a weekend camping needs to be entirely basic and slightly uncomfortable? We have seen first hand that the sky is the limit with these canvas mansions, and are excited to be a part of their creation.
