Luxury Camping is In-Tents

Luxury camping is all the rage for FabTravelers. Who knew that camping doesn't have to be all about dirt and roughing it? Places like Mauritius, Thailand and Australia all have luxurious tent resorts that just may be the unique high-end experience you've been looking for. If you cringe at the thought of dirty feet and infrequent showering but love the romance of star gazing and being one with nature then luxury camping is for you.

Le Martis Camp - Kenya. Experience Africa - with style. The camp is beautifully designed by camp owner Lemarti's wife, Anna Trzebinski, but its intention is to immerse you in an authentic and awe-inspiring African environment.

Greystoke Mahale, Tanzania. Located on the Beach at the edge of Lake Tanganyika, in the Mahale Mountains National Park; it doesn't get more remote than this. This luxury camping ground (with running water, no less) can only be accessed by charter flight and is home to the world's largest known population of chimpanzees. Every day you can venture out into the forest to observe them. Oh, and you can't book with them directly, you need to find a reputable Tour Operator who specializes in African travel. Yeah.

Four Seasons Tented Camp Golden Triangle, Thailand. You need a river boat to get to this "camp ground" that features only 15 luxury tented accommodations. Take a bath in your hand-hammered copper tub on your all-inclusive three- or four-night stay, then train a few elephants and embark on an excursion through the exotic bamboo jungle.

Banjaar Tola Kahna National Park, India. A jungle safari lodge fit for the movies. Situated along the banks of the Banjaar River, Banjaar Tola is actually the third safari lodge in the Taj Resorts family. It is set to open in early 2009. Did I mention that Kahna National Park is also a tiger reserve? Rawr.
