So when you start planning your glamping trip, be sure to look into these locales.

They sit along the edge of the water, deep in jungle, high above the ground supported by stilts (necessary thanks to the flood season). There are plenty of activities to participate in too, including picnics in the jungle, canoeing, tree climbing, alligator spotting and more.
