Where does Glamping come from?
The term “glamping” is a contraction of “glamorous camping”. It refers to a form of camping that offers more luxurious amenities and services than traditional camping. Glamping aims to offer the experience of the outdoors while providing the comfort and amenities associated with more upscale stays.
The precise origin of glamping is a little difficult to determine but the concept is generally thought to have emerged in the 2000s. Some believe that glamping has its roots in luxury safaris in Africa, where camps were set up to provide guests with a wild experience while maintaining a high level of comfort.
Glamping has since spread around the world, with sites offering luxury tents, treehouses, stylish yurts and other quirky forms of accommodation. Glamping enthusiasts often seek an outdoor experience without sacrificing modern conveniences, and this trend continues to grow in popularity in tourism and travel.
