Ive been to Karijini National Park 3 times now, the first two times I camped, this time round I “glamped” (glamour camping).
Its not as though you have many options anyway. There is little power and certainly no housing there which I guess goes towards the “Eco” title, you don’t even have a rubbish bin, anything that you use, you have to cart 40 odd kms out of the Park.
Im glad I glamped this time round, the back isn’t what it used to be and sleeping on the floor or in a cot makes for a bad day and grumpy Geoff.
Quite the difference in price from 20-30 bucks a night to camp with your own gear vs a on sale price of 500 bucks for 2-3 nights for 2 people with meals included etc, but it means things are taken care of so I don’t have to think about stuff and just go out and shoot.
So with the glamping I had a king bed (think it was king?) private shower/ toilet as opposed to communal and a power point to charge my camera gear.
I must say that the shower/ toilet etc is still out doors and exposed though… Yes there is a roof over it from the Eco tent and walls but there is no glass in the windows and the walls finish about head height. Its a bit of a surprise when you wake up in the morning only to find 30 pairs of eyes staring at you from the toilet (green tree frogs).
Anyway here are some shots from the weekend. I took about 10 gigs worth so Ill have to go through them all eventually. Last shot is of the Eco Tent.
