This charming safari tent is situated in a peaceful creekside setting with mountain views near Harrisburg, Pennsylvania. The rental is in the perfect setting for a family or a group of friends to escape the hustle and bustle of the city and to enjoy exploring the great outdoors.

Inside the tent, glampers can rest their heads on a comfortable queen-size bunk bed and cozy up together beside the wood-burning stove. Linens and pillows are available for an additional fee. There is also a dome tent for guests to use, allowing up to six guests to enjoy a getaway together. 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. Additionally, glampers will have access to a sun shower as well.

Outside, glampers will find an inviting wooden deck furnished with Adirondack lounge chairs, as well as a fire pit with bench seating. The property also has a barbecue grill and a picnic area, perfect for cooking up a mouthwatering steak followed by some al fresco dining in this peaceful spot.
