The idea of luxury adventure camping is a sweetly twisted one. As a complete walkover from the luxurious hotels, the travel camps in your luxury travel get you closer to the sheer beauty of nature in places with humble infrastructure. Rest assured you are denied of the world-class service in the most comfortable digs. The posh term “glamping” (short for glamorous camping) may not go down well with some people who do not wish the glorification of such cozy encounter amidst the nature. Despite the semantics, though, it’s undeniable that this upscale approach to sleeping under the stars offers you a chance to experience some of the most exotic and breathtaking places on the planet. Plus, you’ll end the day with a gourmet meal, a roaring campfire, and a cozy bed with a real mattress – all prepared in advance, just for you. Take a look:
- Galapagos Safari Camp– A trailblazer among South American luxury camping resorts, the Galapagos Safari Camp was designed in the style of an exclusive African safari lodge. Located in the highlands of the archipelago’s central island, Santa Cruz Island, the Safari Camp is a 130-acre farm that is home to an abundance of bird and plant species. In fact, it even has its own Giant tortoise reserve. Because of its location, perched on a ridge, the camp possesses a sensational view of the Pacific Ocean as well as vistas of the Galapagos’ western and northern islands. The camp provides nine luxurious tented cabanas and one 3-bedroom suite – making it great for families and small groups. Add to that the expert’s guidance which would show you around in the most adventurous wildlife excursions. From hiking, biking, snorkeling, kayaking, scuba diving and even surfing, these excursions allow you to experience as much of the islands as possible. However, the greatest thrill of a Galapagos Safari Camp trip is seeing wildlife roaming free and completely uninhibited
- Patagonia Camp, Torres del Paine, Chile- There are few destinations quite as scenic as Patagonia, with nothing around …save for mile upon mile of Coigue forests, rolling plains, the glittering Toro Lake and – watching over it all – the soaring granite peaks of the Torres del Paine mountains themselves. It’s no wonder that such a range of intriguing wildlife call this place home, from llamas and condors to pumas and foxes. This is why the park and surroundings are home to a handful of charming lodges. However, for the most intrepid travelers seeking to experience the wilds of Patagonia up close, Patagonia Camp is ideal.
- Treehouse Lodge in the Peruvian Amazon– Leave everyday life behind as you plunge into the Amazon rainforest with the help of Treehouse Lodge, situated within the lush canopy of the Peruvian Amazon. Located 60 miles from the city of Iquitos (itself reachable only by air or river), the lodge’s surrounding reserve is teeming with all sorts of birdlife, crocodiles, monkeys, sloths and armadillos. This means that, other than relaxing in treehouse luxury, you can spend your time discovering wildlife on daily wildlife safaris. In addition, you can cool off natural pools, go kayaking, practice yoga, go horseback or camel riding, and even catch (and release) Caiman crocs!
