Picture this: you get to crash in a huge, decked-out tent with cushy beds, rugs, lights, and other fancy stuff you’d usually only see in a hotel.

Not bad, uh?

It’s like luxury camping that makes you feel like you’re on safari in Africa… even if you’re just glamping down the road!

Safari Tent Details

Safari tents focus on durability and functionality
They focus on durability and functionality

Safari tent camping (also called “glamping” because the tents are normally fancy) is a super cool way to enjoy nature without totally roughing it.

These tents are:

  • Normally huge canvas tents set up on wood platforms, so you’re not sleeping on the ground

  • They look like old-school safari expedition tents…

  • …but inside they have beds, chairs, lights, and maybe even a bathroom if you’re glamping in style.

It’s not like just pitching a tent in the dirt and sleeping in a sleeping bag on rocks…

… Safari glamping lets you go camping without giving up on any of the comfy stuff.
