Glamping is camping’s elegant big sister. It mixes the beauty of nature and the outdoors with the amenities and convenience of staying in a hotel. One way to make this experience even more glamorous is to rent a portable bathroom to take with you.

Types of glamping
There are all sorts of glamping experiences, including ones with their own portable glamping bathrooms and ones where using the facilities is a more rugged experience. You can glamp in a yurt, a barn, an airstream, a bell tent, or a dome. There are even options that allow you to sleep in an inflatable, transparent pod where you can see the stars at night. With many of these options, there isn’t an attached toilet or shower. You could use mother nature’s open-air options or you could rent a portable glamping bathroom, equipped with full vanity, a flushable toilet, and a full-sized, curtained shower.

Where can you glamp?
It depends. If you rent or buy your own specialized tent, you can glamp almost anywhere that’s open to the public. If you’re using a stationary site, you’re limited to where the bedroom is set up. However, much like camping, glamping opens up some amazing places that hotels just can’t reach. You can glamp in the mountains, in the desert, by the ocean, or in a forest. One must-see glamping location is in Queensland at Nightfall Camp near Lamington National Park, with its safari tents made from handmade canvas. There is also one in Tanja Lagoon Camp in New South Wales and Tiny Stays in Victoria. In Australia, if you’re looking for a truly magical and secluded spot, you can head to Wave Break Island. However, you’ll need to figure out a functional bathroom situation. You can bring a portable camping bathroom!

What to take with you while glamping?
Make sure you pack comfortable shoes – both for inside the glamping space and for hiking or moving through the outdoors. You’ll also want a good bug spray that doesn’t leave you smelling like chemicals or feeling sticky. If you’re planning on sitting in the sun, swimming, or exploring your surroundings, you’ll probably also want a strong sunblock. And don’t forget a Bluetooth speaker so you can sit in your luxurious tent, or pavilion and listen to some tunes.

You may also want to pack a power bank if there are not going to be electrical outlets at your site. There are some great solar chargers out there if you’re going on a trip that lasts longer than a power bank. Definitely bring fun activities; you can’t be hiking, swimming, and meditating on the beauty around you all the time. If you’re doing a digital fast from your phone and social media, you’ll need something to keep your hands busy. Bring board games or outdoor games like cornhole or ladder toss. Books are also a good option for winding down for a bit.

Finally, don’t forget your shampoo and conditioner. After a busy day outside, you’ll likely want to rinse off in a luxurious hot shower. Portable glamping bathrooms for rent come with recesses to store all your shower toiletries.

Try something new
Glamping is the best of both worlds while traveling: it lets you explore and reconnect with nature. It can help you appreciate the quiet majesty of the world we don’t often see outside our homes or on the streets of a city. It also lets you sleep in a comfortable bed, with many of the amenities afforded to us by our everyday lives.

Give glamping a try and, for an extra-comfortable experience, rent a portable glamping bathroom from Ensuites On Tow to make sure your teeth are clean, you’ve rinsed off that campfire smell, and you’re able to climb beneath those high-end sheets without a care in the world.
