Luxury camping or glamping is a style of camping that includes hotel-style amenities in the wilderness, and is also referred to as boutique camping, posh camping, or comfy camping. It originated in Africa when wealthy travelers did not want to sacrifice comfort and luxury while partaking in African safaris. Glamping eventually spread throughout Europe and most recently to the West Coast of North America, where it has been extremely popular.
