Top 3 Glamping Picks for the Camping-phobe


For people who hate camping, the images that are usually conjured up in relation to the activity include cold and wet or hot and sticky nights, smoky campfires, pesky mosquitoes and thin sleeping bags. However the age of glamping is upon us. The word, used to define luxury camping accommodation, is a play on the words glamorous camping. Today we feature some of our favourite glamping spots around Kenya while you enjoy to Tembea Kenya.



First up, the Sweetwaters Serena Camp at Ol Pejeta. If there’s one thing Serena does right, it's luxury and this is no exception. They are so good they’ve appeared twice on this list.

 We finish up this list with a trip to the Serengeti in Tanzania and a stay at Mbuzi Mawe Tented Camp. The scenic camp is located close to the path where  the annual animal migration takes place, making it an ideal venue to witness one of earth’s great spectacle.

The 16 tent camp offers a variety of activities including hot air balloon safaris and hikes up the kopje’s - 3 million year old granite rocks that secure the camp.  Meals are served at the central mess tent with a bar available for a tipple or two when needed. The camp is perfect spot to getaway from it all and take in the joys of being outdoors with none of the hassle.
