Editor’s note: Each month, we’d like to introduce you to one of our wonderful Glamping Hub hosts and what inspired them to create a glamping site. This month, we have Don, who manages this luxury expedition property with beautiful tents that can be set up wherever glampers would like in Sedona, Arizona, and the Grand Canyon in Arizona, as well as a unique dome in Monument Valley, Utah.
1. When was the first time you heard the term glamping?
I wanted to offer my guests the experience of being surrounded by nature with comfortable luxurious accommodations. Glamping was a term that was a perfect fit for the company.
2. What inspired you to have your own glamping site?
The concept of bringing luxury camping to my guests was truly the foundation of the business, to allow for authenticity with a personal touch for guests visiting the southwest. Our campsites are mobile and can be set up in a variety of locations according to the guests custom itinerary.
3. If you could describe your property or the glamping experience you offer in three words, what would they be?
Amazing, spectacular, awe-inspiring.
4. What was your first glamping/camping experience?
Many years ago while camping/hiking with my wife, she brought wine and cheese with dried salami platter in her backpack. We enjoyed the luxury touch to our outback adventure along with a good laugh.

Glamping allows you to experience nature while maintaining a level of comfort not usually found when camping.

Being able to give our guests a deeper understanding and appreciation for the areas we visit combined with a truly authentic experience.
