While many people love the idea of camping—sitting around a campfire with a group of their friends roasting marshmallows before being lulled to sleep by the sound of crickets—once you're out in the wilderness, the experience often isn't so glamorous. 


Whether you're dealing with biting insects, cold temperatures, rain, pooping in the woods, or how to start that idyllic fire in the first place, there are a lot of factors that can make camping a challenging experience.

Click here to see our list of incredible luxury camping destinations.

If you're looking for the outdoor experience without the hassle, glamping—"glamour camping"—is your answer. Around the world, there are places that will not just pitch your tent, but put a bed in it with high-thread count Egyptian cotton sheets, serve you three-course meals under the stars and make sure your ensuite bathroom is nice and toasty before you set foot inside.

Whether you're watching the sun set over the Australian Outback through floor-to-ceiling windows or spying zebras, giraffes and lions drinking at a watering hole from your private deck, these glamping destinations will impress even the most reluctant camper. While many of our favorite spots feature luxury tents, it's good to note that this term can be applied to other structures, such as yurts, teepees, gypsy wagons or tree houses—any semi-permanent housing with more amenities than your basic tent.
