The true origin of glamping was in the 1900’s, as safari tours grew popular. The rich European and American travellers did not want to part with the comfort of their homes, so they had tents with rich furnishing, and had buttlers, cooks and servants.
Recently the trend of glamping, or glamorous camping has re-emerged and come from across the Atlantic Ocean to Europe. Independent properties as well as big hospitality brands have been capitalizing on the rising demand for glamping.
The amenities found in glamping exceed any recreational camper’s expectations. Glamping is experiencing the positive aspects of camping without all the negatives
