STUFF: Glamping

A friend of mine mentioned this on a recent hiking trip I took. Glamping he said is something he wants to get into with his family. At first I was giving him a hard time, because he is usually the one that wants a fire, and marshmallows and all that “stuff” on a camping trip. I on the other hand have gotten more and more adamant about truly roughing it…I had been until I google’ed this.

So now I’m interested… Glamping huh? According to Glamping Girl

“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 travellers, looking to bag a trophy and experience adventure in the wilds of Africa.  Naturally, the wealthy travellers 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, antiques and fully staffed with chefs, guides, porters and butlers.

A new trend of glamping has emerged with luxury camping resorts, safari camps, eco-resorts and campgrounds offering every amenity imaginable, from 5 star dining to spas.  Manufacturers are catching on, offering designer gadgets and gear to bring style to the wilderness.  Regardless of budget, you can enjoy the great outdoors without sacrificing luxury.”

Another image from my google search… The more I see the more I like. Now my imagination is starting to run away we me at this point so I send my friend some links to sites where you can buy your own Glamping tent. I haven’t actually made the purchase yet but here are a few more images to help you understand the attraction. I guess roughing it will have to come after a weekend at one of these places. ;)

Now this next video gets a little too resort-ish even for me, but I had to show it to give you a glimps of just how far people will take this. I don’t know how they still even consider it camping?

So that’s Glamping as I understand it. Not as rough as I normally like it but hey to each his own. Ya never know you might run into me at one of these places, recovering from ‘roughing it’.
