Safari lodges are a popular holiday destination both for South African’s looking for a local holiday and
The safari experience is an exciting and immersive one, albeit one that is best experienced in large
portions… that is to say that a day spent in a national park is simply not enough time to get to truly
For that reason, one of the best ways to get the most out of a safari trip is to spend a few nights in the
area, just one reason behind the popularity of seeking accommodation near the Kruger National Park
that serves as a basecamp for daily adventures through the bushveld.
While choosing to spend a few nights near a safari lodge should be a straightforward one to make,
deciding on what type of accommodation to choose from can be tricky, and is subject to the kind of
experience you want.
Do you want to be in the thick of it or surrounded by all your creature comforts? Why not both?
Luxury glamping tents are an option in this regard, but how does the experience differ from staying in a
Why Stay In Luxury Glamping Tents?
Glamping is a recently coined philosophy that takes staying in the great outdoors to new heights.
While the rustic and often uncomfortable act of camping in the wilderness is one of the best ways to
immerse yourself in a wildlife experience, many people are put off by the ‘roughing it’ nature of doing
so. Luxury glamping tents, however, do things a little differently.
While they are situated in the heart of the bushveld with little infrastructure to mar the experience,
glamping tents are not only far roomier than your average tent, but also houses most of the creature
comforts you would want to take with you to make the experience more accommodating.
These features work together to provide an experience that is intimate, private, and at the centre of
natural surroundings, all while ensuring exceptional, even luxurious comfort.
All the amenities you need
Glamping doesn’t force you to rough it in the wilderness.
We have already mentioned the sprawling and comfortable tents which not only provide comfort but do
so without detracting from the natural surroundings.
Here at Timbavati Safari Lodge, they come complete with en suite bathrooms, power, three-quarter
beds, tea, coffee, and wilderness for miles.
Luxury Glamping Tents – Accessibility to nature
Luxury glamping tents put you in the heart of nature in a way that lodges can only hint at or give you a
stunning view of.
Between the solace of isolation from other people, the surrounding calls of wildlife at different times of
the day, the scents from the diverse indigenous flora, or the odd visitation from local wildlife, you get a
much more ‘feet in the soil’ experience of nature when glamping compared to staying in a lodge -albeit
without getting those feet dirty.
Want to organise a nature walk? All you need to do is pack supplies and walk out your front door.
Luxury Glamping Tents – Value for money
While glamping, with all its bells and whistles, comes at a higher cost to regular camping, the value for
money you get is second to none. Glamping generally comes at less of a cost to staying in
accommodation near the Kruger National Park while still providing many of the comforts, amenities,
and facilities you would find in chalets, rondavels, or even hotels.
Of course, the experience is different, the more rustic setting is part of the charm and the point, which
makes the decision to stay in a luxury glamping tent one that is based on personal preference; what you
want from the experience, as opposed to limitations from pricing.
