A mashup of “glamorous” and “camping,” glamping is a world-wide phenomenon that combines the thrills of camping with the creature comforts of home. While the term glamping may only be a few years old, the concept has a venerable history. Centuries ago, Turkish Ottomans would set up extravagant tents—appointed with silk fabrics, expensive rugs, and furnishings—as mobile palaces for their sultan. In Africa of the early 1900s, wealthy Americans and Europeans arranged for their safari tents to be outfitted with such luxuries as Persian rugs, linen bedding and a chef to prepare meals. At Conestoga Ranch, our glamping guests luxuriate in amenities that far surpass those found at conventional campgrounds.
