2. Book a Glamping Tour
In the 1920s, the upper classes of British society saw ‘going on safari’ as the must-do thing. It was a rite of passage. Today, many people love the idea of going glamping, but don’t quite know what to do or see when they make a reservation at a glamping site. Packaged glamping tours meet this need. Glamping packages take you around the world, or they take you around the country. Many of these packages put you in glamping tents located within National Parks and protected forests. Your days will usually be planned for you, so all you need to do is wake up and see what’s on your schedule for that day.
3. Go Glamping in a Cave
There’s almost nothing you can’t experience when you go glamping. From staying in a tree house to staying in a cave, there are numerous weird and wacky places to find accommodations. With their modern conveniences, people staying in clamping caves view, experience, and live in a unique setting without giving up creature comforts. It’s camping on a whole new level.
4. Glamping is a Global Phenomenon

5. Glamping Can Be a Road Trip Experience
Today’s trailers and RVs are fitted out with convenience in mind, and contain a lot to make them livable for long stretches at a time. For this reason, many people take cross country road trips in mobile homes. You can plan a road trip with multiple destinations because of the ease of travel afforded by a customized, modern RV or trailer. Gone are the days of cramped, shabby trailer homes that you could hardly move in.
