While the appeal of camping is evident, it is crystal clear that the hardships it can involve in the way have prevented many packing the sleeping bags. Tour companies have been quick to notice this, and the result, ‘glamping’ – short speak for ‘glamour camping’, the latest trend in camping, where it is not necessary to know how to set up a tent, to get a fire going from scratch, because you simply do not have to. This is camping with a flavor of luxury; you can go the nature way without compromising on key comforts. Circumnavigating the woods for a place to camp is a thing of the past. Camping does not have to mean roughing it out any more.
glamping features all the joys of the great outdoors, but comes with a range of facilities that ensure you enjoy the nature with no suffering. Luxury is not an option here, it is a given. Glamour camping involves sleeping in designer tents wired for electricity (! ) on comfortable mattresses along with a whole range of comforts. The tents are not the dowdy canvas ones; they are designed in bright colors and high end materials with an eye to luxury. These tents can be fitted with electricity. There are a lot of appliances one can have, like reading lamps. Also there can be climate controls that ensure heating when it is cold, and cooling when it is hot. Uncomfortable sleeping bags that start to reek when wet are also disposed off, glampers have full size air mattresses, or even spring mattresses. There are a range of choices for sleeping in including safari tents, teepees, yurts, air stream caravans or even vw campervans or trailers depending on operators.
