This unique luxury tent, located in Crete, Greece, allows glampers to enjoy their vacation while giving back to the community.

Guided tours and set feeding times allows glampers to really get to know the animals, and appreciate the important worked carried out here.

Sleeping up to three people, the luxury tent is equipped with a queen-size, raised air bed and a big single raised air bed, with linens provided by the host. Perfect for a cozy night under the stars! Adjacent to the main tent there is a spacious shower tent with a camping toilet and hand pumped solar shower. This is a once in a lifetime opportunity to enjoy a glamping vacation on a beautiful Greek island while being part of a truly special charity organization at the same time!
This luxury tent is fully equipped with everything guests will need to enjoy their stay in the ultimate comfort. There are a range of features that are designed to ensure glampers have a truly memorable experience, including a beautiful wooden decking area that is the perfect spot for guests to enjoy their morning coffee while listening to the song birds. The tent itself is crafted from thick cotton, and has two big doors with mosquito nets and two large netted windows meaning it is extremely well ventilated. Although this is an off-the-grid experience there is limited power in the tent for a bedside light, to firm up the airbed if necessary, and for recharging phones.
A breakfast hamper is provided full of delicious goods, and guests can make tea and coffee with the hot water dispenser in the tent.
