Alternative stays are based on the new exciting trend called Glamping or "glamorous camping" offering new experiences of staying in unique outdoor accommodation with style and luxury.
The history of Glamping goes back to the Safaris of wealthy European and American travellers in Africa since the early 1900s, Safari being the Arabic word for "as to make a journey"
These demanding travellers would stay in luxurious canvas tents furnished with beds, luxury linen, antiques, Persian rugs and even a full team of staff containing butlers, chefs, porters, and guides to cater for their every need.
inventive souls have been inspired to dream up new exciting types of glamping to accommodate travellers....anything from five star luxury camping lodges to quirky beach huts hidden away in windswept coastlines.
Do you have an inspiring glamping retreat, we would love to hear about it....
