Camping in style for National Camping Month

Camping in style for National Camping Month
By Damien Martin

School’s out, summer’s here and it’s time to break out the tents and s’mores, because June is national camping month. At Largay Travel, we love camping as much as the next person, but as usual, we like ours with a unique flair. Here are a few of our favorites.

American Safari Camp

With locations at Lake Powell, Yellowstone National Park and the Grand Canyon, American Safari Camp puts you closer to the action of nature than any hotel can get you. Not only are the accommodations spacious and the food a few steps up from canned beans, but just about any activity you can dream up can be arranged: horseback riding, mountain biking, rappelling and hot-air ballooning are all possible. Plus, your guides pitch and take down the tents, so all you have to do is have fun.

Clayoquot Wilderness Resort

Located in Tofino, British Columbia, in the Clayoquot Sound World Biosphere, the resort features 20 tents with flush or composting toilets and private showers. The most awe-inspiring option, however, is Cloud Camp. At an elevation of 4,500 feet, you can kayak, do sky-high yoga or sip a glass of wine and watch the sunset overlooking an alpine lake. Choose your own adventure.

Four Seasons Tented Camp, Golden Triangle

In Northern Thailand, bordering Myanmar and Laos along the Mekong River, you’re really roughing it here with all-inclusive packages and the service of Four Seasons. After a day of adventure trekking or interacting with rescue elephants in their natural environment, you’ve probably earned a trip to the spa. Try finding that in your local woods.

The Ultimate Travelling Camp

With three locations in northern and eastern India, The Ultimate Travelling Camp provides all the comforts of home, plus a few extra comforts such as private chefs preparing gourmet meals as you soak up the culture and nature of these remote locations. Tents have hot showers, panoramic views and minibars whenever you need a break from all that exploring.

andBeyond Bateleur Camp

On the western side of Kenya’s Maasai Mara National Reserve, Bateleur Camp strikes the perfect balance between natural beauty and elegant accommodation. As you enjoy a commanding view of the animals on the plain, a private butler serves Pan-African cuisine complete with polished silver and crystal dishware. You can visit a Maasai village or stay home and take a few laps in the pool, but the real gem is a hot-air balloon ride at dawn during the Great Migration. Even when you’re on vacation, some things are worth waking up early for.
