There are two luxury tents at this nature reserve within the Sky Islands of Arizona—the Jaguar Camp and Ocelot Camp. The tents are located within a Mesquite Bosque (woodland) with sites so secluded that glampers won’t see other tourists in the area. This glamping site allows guests to disconnect, enjoy the wildlife, and relish in the peace and quiet of nature. These luxury tents are made of beautiful mustard-yellow canvas, and they sit atop a large Fir-wood platform. The tents measure 20 feet long, 14 feet wide, and 10 feet high. Both come with an incredibly comfortable and adjustable sleep number queen-size bed, cotton linens, and adjustable cooling fans. The private outdoor bathroom includes a hot and cold shower, a rustic copper sink, large/soft towels, and an indoor, state-of-the-art Incinerator toilet. Additionally, these luxury tents are equipped with rustic wooden furniture, energy-saving lights, a mesquite-fired wood stove, nature-based art, and a nature library. Both ends of the luxury tent have stylish mesh screen doors, allowing fresh air circulation to help regulate the temperature as desired, and ensuring that the local wild creatures stay outside.. In addition, glampers can access both ends of their luxury tent via retractable stairways that lead to the outdoor decks on each side of the platform—the perfect spot for a glass of wine or a good book! It is possible to also choose to relax in a spacious cotton hammock located in a private sitting area just outside the tent.
