Our new Safari Tens have a queen-sized bed with soft mattresses and quality sheets, pine furniture, fans, electric lights, wood stoves and heaters and even WIFI. The tent platform is in the trees, with a veranda, outdoor chairs and a small enclosure with a portable toilet and sink. A short walk takes you to showers and additional toilets. There is also an area for barbequing and outdoor dining and a great deck for relaxing and drinks high up in the trees. Our hot tubs under the stars are also nearby (reserve your private time in advance or on arrival). Glamping is a far cry from the days of camping on air mattresses with sleeping bags!
Access to all Amenities
Our glamping guests have full access to the amenities and are welcome at the complimentary breakfast in the Manor House. We have mountain bikes and walking trails for those who want to explore nature and the nearby Digdeguash tidal bay and waterfall.
The history of Glamping
Glamping is often considered a new concept because the word was added to the dictionary in 2016. However, historical records and paintings reveal its popularity among the European aristocracy from the 1500s. The English kings and a few hundred friends were known to erect more than a thousand tents for a summer holiday of “glamping”, furnishing the compound with beds, tables and chairs and oriental carpets from their castles. African safaris brought an unprecedented luxury to camping in the early 1920s that has now spread around the globe.
