There’s no better way to unwind and get back to nature than to set up your tent, light a campfire and doze off beneath the stars. However, your camping destinations needn’t be limited to the local woods – there’s a whole world full of incredible places for camping, and in this article, Travelup discusses some of the best.
Visitors to Morocco will often take a day trip to the Sahara Desert, but few realise that this is actually a prime camping spot. For the full Saharan experience, Travelup reviews recommends that visitors trek by camel out to the desert, and camp out in the sands in a traditional nomadic campsite. These encampments range come from comfortable and basic, to full blown luxury tents. Most camping trips to the Sahara are done with the help of a guide, and meals will usually be included in the trip. This is definitely a more unique camping experience – surrounded by the vast desert landscape, tucked away at the foothills of the desert dunes, this is an experience which you won’t want to miss out on.
Australia is another excellent destination for camping; just a short drive from the city of Sydney you’ll find a park called Blue Mountains. This is one of the country’s prime camping areas. Home to waterfalls, lush green forests and jagged cliffs, campers here love to go rock climbing, hiking, swimming and mountain biking. There are several areas in which to camp inside this enormous park, however camping spots do fill up quickly during the summer months.
