This secluded safari tent is tucked away in the sublime Catskills wilderness in Andes, New York, and boasts an excellent location, just a short drive from Big Indian Wilderness, and walking distance from Big Pond where glampers can enjoy an array of activities. The tent is spacious and boasts a queen-size bunk bed, accommodating four glampers easily, as well as a wood-burning stove that provides ample heat during the cooler months. Every tent comes with a portable camp toilet, which is a wooden box with a seat that has a bucket inside. The hosts were inspired by the bathrooms on NASA spaceships when creating these camp toilets. Before use, guests must line the bucket with a CleanWaste bag that is provided by the hosts, or a similar plastic bag. After use, the bag must be tied up and placed in the trash.

When hunger strikes, meals will be hassle-free with the camp stove, grill, and fire pit and there is a picnic area for outdoor dining. In the morning, glampers can sit back on the deck that is furnished with Adirondack chairs and enjoy a fresh brew, hot off the stove, while the nearby pond and surrounding nature provide the perfect soundtrack to this glamping experience. Before retiring for the day, the fire pit beckons glampers to gather around, roast s'mores, and catch up over a simmering mug of cocoa.
