Glamorous Camping: Glamping

Updated on December 27, 2016

Glamping (glamorous camping) seems like it must be something just for girls at first. You get a picture of mirrors, make up and lights all set up in tents. Or, that was the picture that came to my mind. However, glamping has a range from lightly rustic to full out luxury.

Looking at the directories for glamping sites around the world I found several based on farms, working farms and hobby farms. Some are located on beaches and some in mountains, forests too. Some feature tents and some have cabins - which would be more year round I'd think.

The idea of glamping seems to have started in Africa, with the luxury safari camps for hunters and tourists. I can remember seeing old movies like Tarzan where they had camps with big canvas tents, king size beds, bedding, carpets, towels, furniture, a feast of food including wine. It looked great on film no wonder people began to copy the idea. It sure sounds better than sleeping on the ground, enduring a leaky tent, fighting off insects and doing without indoor plumbing.

There isn't a directory of locations here any more so I removed the link.

      I'm a very novice camper in general. But, I'd far rather go glamping than camp outdoors without plumbing.

      I'll look for your post. It's good for people to write their own slant and ideas on the same topics.

      Ha ha! Just wrote a hub on glamping myself - didn't realise you'd already done one.

      Can't see myself ever putting a tent up again!

      I like the light touch of rustic too. I've never actually gone camping. I didn't want to face the lack of indoor plumbing and the over abundance of bugs.

      Oooooh.....I like the Canada glamping, now that's style! I believe in creature comforts wherever and whenever possible. Cool, funny hub!
