June 2019

As we bask in summer temperatures, thoughts invariably turn to camping, so this month we thought we'd indulge you with the Bushbaby take on holidays under canvas. At the crossroads between alluring luxury, plentiful cossetting, unspoiled wilderness, and conservation there's nothing ordinary about any of the incredible tented lodges and camps we feature below - think roll-top baths, sumptuous beds, top-notch guiding, animal encounters, cultural insights and yes, plenty of flamboyance. They are all game-changers in their own way and should definitely make your travel lust list, not least because they all rate highly in the family-friendly travel stakes!

Hope you've enjoyed our social media posts from the field this month! Sara & Amy are back from South Africa and Mauritius and, as we go to press, Lops and Abi, along with Tabitha and Imy, both 9, are still road-testing beach hotels in Thailand  - it's a tough job, but someone has to do it!

Crocodile's Nest at Flatdogs, South Luangwa National Park in Zambia has to be the ultimate in family glamping!  More a tented 'house', up to 6 lucky guests can enjoy the private pool, views over the Luangwa River as well as a private guide and vehicle, offering great value. Did we mention the radio so you can order up your meals from the restaurant - take out on a whole new level!

Wildman Wilderness

For serious eco credentials, teeming wildlife and unique tours, yet with all the modern comforts of great accommodation, delicious meals and wine to enjoy at the end of each exhilarating day, look no further than this fabulous lodge, in the heart of the Australian outback. Memories of the exquisite scenery and unique biodiversity will stay with you forever. Just watch out for those crocs!

Shinta Mani Wild

Shinta Mani Wild, in the southern region of Cambodia, is equal parts hyper-luxurious tented camp and wildlife conservation project, working to provide sustainable opportunities to the local population and thus prevent poaching, logging and mining. For this alone it gets our vote.

Thakadu River Camp

Owned and run by the local community, charming Thakadu lies within malaria-free Madikwe Game Reserve. Tucked along the riverbank, the twelve luxury suites boast great viewing decks and, along with the main lodge, offer glorious wildlife-viewing before you've even set off on your first Big 5  game-drive.

The Resort at Paw's Up

This iconic 'dude ranch' is for wannabee cowboys and cowgirls who like to experience unspoiled wilderness in luxury. The 38 tents, with vintage furniture, sumptuous bedding and en-suite bathrooms, sit on a sprawling 37,000 acre Montana ranch. Everything from abseiling to rafting is on offer when you're not ranching. Oh and there's butler service too.

Galapagos Safari Camp

A luxury tented camp, in the highlands of Santa Cruz, if you're looking for a land-based alternative to a Galapagos cruise this is it. Jaw-dropping wildlife-viewing aside, with activities such as yoga and horse-riding, there's something for everyone. The stylish safari tents boast balconies with stunning views, and the owners, with a young family of their own, are wonderfully attuned to the needs of younger guests.

Elephant Hills

Close to the jungle of Khao Sok National Park, 30 safari-style tents set in the largest area of rainforest in Southern Thailand await! Elephant interactions are the main attraction but trekking through the jungle and kayaking from the door of your over water tent on a stunning lake  come a very close second!

Desert Night's Camp

Surrounded by endless red-gold dunes, Desert Nights Camp, Oman offers fixed Bedouin-style air-conditioned tents - perfect for a taste of Arabian adventure!  Whether you're a thrill-seeker, keen to try your hand at sand-boarding,or just want to explore the desert’s hidden secrets, it's a great add-on for an otherwise beach-based holiday.
