The term Glamping got its name from the combination of the words “glamorous” and “camping” and has been in regular use since the early 2000’s. However, history will tell us that certain types of Glamping have been around for centuries before. The nowadays popular Yurt was favoured by nomadic cultures in the 6th century, whilst Mongolian ruler Genghis Khan has his Yurt picked up and wheeled on a cart, pulled by oxen during the 13th century. In the 16th and 17th centuries, King James V had a luxury camping site in the Scottish Highlands, with the tents interiors filled with decadent furnishings and adornments from his own palace. Safari tents became a popular choice for wealthy American and British travellers in the 20th century, who were venturing on African safaris.
