Have you considered “glamping” for your next holiday?

“Glamping” is known as a form of camping that involves accommodation and facilities that are more luxurious than those associated with traditional camping.

It’s essentially camping for “city-slickers”.

Many places across the world are adopting this style of camping for those who still want to explore the bush, but not want to give up creature comforts such as a comfortable bed and a shower.

One destination that’s taken advantage of glamping as well as their beautiful scenery is Kings Canyon in the Northern Territory of Australia. 

“The new glamping tents offer our guests a sensory experience of the Australian outback. From the early morning song of the crested bellbird to the call of the dingo, the sights and sounds of the desert are front and centre of the glamping experience at Kings Canyon Resort,” says General Manager, Michelle Ikin.

With six premium canvas tents to choose from that have been designed to blend in with the landscape of the Northern Territory, some would argue you’re spoilt for choice.

Three tents have been designed for couples whereas the other three are for families as they feature a king bed as well as two king single beds.

Each tent includes premium linen, a modern lounge area, dining space and an outdoor deck with seating so you’re able to take in the natural beauty around you.

There’s also a split air-conditioning system to beat the heat as well as a private ensuite bathroom full to the brim with Australian made skin care products.
