Location + Surroundings
This safari tent is located at a glamping site in Virgin, Utah, where it is centrally positioned in relation to many of the state's premier natural attractions, providing an excellent base camp from which to explore some of the most spectacular landscapes of the Southwest. From the site, guests can reach Zion National Park in 20 minutes, Quail Creek State Park and Sand Hollow State Park in 30 minutes, the Canaan Mountain Wilderness and the Red Cliffs National Conservation Area in 40 minutes, the Water Canyon Trailhead in 50 minutes, and Snow Canyon State Park in under an hour.
At the site itself, guests will find a bucolic setting composed of peaceful meadows dotted with tall, leafy, and shade-giving trees. A family of ducks lives on the site, and the neighboring pastures are home to cows, sheep, and horses. At night, guests will enjoy clear skies, unobscured by light pollution, revealing the full splendor of the myriad stars above. During the day, the pastoral scenery is set into relief by a backdrop of sandstone cliffs abruptly up in the near distance.
Impressive as these cliffs are, they are just a taste of things to come as guests explore the surrounding natural areas. Many more such cliffs await guests at the self-descriptive Red Cliffs Desert Reserve, which also safeguards a variety of desert ecosystems, black lava rock caps, mountainous areas, and protected habitats for a variety of birds, mammals, and reptiles, including desert tortoises. Guests can see many more unique geological features at the adjacent Snow Canyon State Park, including extinct cinder cones, lava flowers, and lava tubes.
Closer to the site, at Zion National Park, guests will find attractions such as Zion Canyon, the Virgin River, and the Emerald Pools, along with 148,016 acres of desert, riparian, woodland, and coniferous forest environments, which provide habitats for a variety of wildlife, including mule, deer, collared lizards, cougars, bighorn sheep, and pinyon jays. To the south of the park, at the Canaan Mountain Wilderness, guests will find 44,500 acres of cliff walls, slot canyons, natural arches, mountain slopes, and plateaus crowned with stands of ponderosa pines.
Connecting the park and the wilderness, the Water Canyon Trail offers to take guests on a meandering journey through a narrow corridor of sandstone canyon walls, winding past boulders, juniper trees, gullies, waterfalls, fractured ledges, and patches of lush vegetation along the way. Guests craving more water in the mostly arid environs of southwestern Utah can head to the 600-acre reservoir of Quail Creek State Park or the 1,322-acre reservoir of Sand Hollow State Park.
The tent is two hours and 20 minutes from Las Vegas, where the nearest international airport is located. Read More
