Luxe Camping Retreats
Going off the grid still promises breathtaking adventures, but no longer means needing to rough it with accommodations of the pitch-your-own-tent variety. Adventure outfitters continue to up the ante with facilities and tour offerings that deliver irresistible, immersive experiences. Adventure doesn’t get much more swoon-worthy than arriving by camel at Marhaba Camp, located near Morocco’s Erg Chebbi sand dunes in the Sahara Desert. You’ll settle into a luxurious tent—outfitted with local textiles and a private bath—and enjoy home-cooked meals, a surrounding garden, and 24-hour front desk service. Another desert oasis awaits in Australia’s Northern Territory, where King’s Canyon Wilderness Lodge’s 10 luxury tents come with air conditioning, private decks, en-suite bathrooms, and even bathrobes for guests. Evenings in the Outback begin with drinks and hors d'oeuvres on the verandah before dinner under the stars, Aussie style.
