So why should you choose to go glamping in the desert? What exactly is glamping? In the adventure vacation world, Glamping is a word that is being heard more and more often. It may be considered a fad or a trend, but the glamping trend is growing like wildfire in the US. Glamping is an amalgamation of the words glamorous and camping. Also called ‘luxury camping’ or ‘boutique camping’, It describes a style of camping with luxury services and amenities that are not usually associated with traditional camping. Although the term may be relatively new, the concept has been around for quite a while and is growing into something extraordinary.

I want to reiterate that while it is glamping is definitely known by the adventure seekers, Glamping can be as adventurous or relaxing as you’d like and can accommodate and any desire you have for a vacation. You can explore the world through adventure and experiences without giving up the amenities of home. The air conditioning is probably the most important thing when visiting the desert.

No matter what the season may be, each location has its own interests you can enjoy. Imagine enjoying hot chocolate as you snuggle next to a fire pit on a beautiful winter day. Or, taking a walk through the sparkling sands of the desert to take in the breathtaking views. The sky's the limit, and you can make your trip as luxurious or action-packed as you desire
