Glamping is defined as “a type of camping that is more comfortable and luxurious than traditional camping. The word is a mixture of ‘glamorous’ and ‘camping’”. It is fast becoming a popular form of camping as it provides the full experience of being outdoors but with the added advantages of amenities that make our lives comfortable.

It doesn’t matter if you have never gone camping, a disappointed camper or even if you are a pro-camper. Glamping is definitely an experience not to be missed. Here are 5 reasons to convince you to try it:

Adventurous Locations

Location is everything and you are sure to spend your glamping days in some of the most beautiful places, surrounded by some of the world’s best natural environments. Also, glamping doesn’t mean you miss out on the tents, most glamping locations provide accommodations that uses the traditional tent experience, like Jetwing Safari Camp in Yala Sri Lanka, but with all the amenities.

Quality time with Loved Ones

There is never enough quality time with our loved ones with our busy schedules but a glamping trip with them is sure to help you catch up. An added benefit is that with the comfort and amenities that are available you are sure not to get into arguments that are sure to come up with traditional camping trips.

Star-gazing Opportunities

The billions of stars that are in the galaxy are a sight to behold, but we usually do not see their beauty in cities that have their own lights which hideaway the stars. When you go glamping though, you see all the billions of stars. As Marcus Aurelius, the Roman Emperor is known to have said, ““Dwell on the beauty of life. Watch the stars…”.

No Expertise Required

Normal camping requires a level of expertise and know-how. How to set up a tent, how to cook, how to “do your business” in the wild, the list goes on. With glamping you get all the perks of camping with none of the problems and hardships. You don’t need to have any expertise but you can enjoy all the beauty and adventure of it.


Glamping is eco-friendly. Most places that offer glamping are in the middle of the wild, therefore they aim to be as eco-friendly as possible so as to have as little an impact to their surroundings and the inhabitants of those surroundings.
