The animal glamping facility will open in Chiba.
If you’ve never heard of glamping, it is a portmanteau for the words glamorous and camping. It is a new camping style, where, unlike in ordinary camps, you can easily enjoy luxuriously camping without having to set up a tent by yourself. The facilities are as good as a hotel, and it is attractive that even people who have never gone camping can experience it with ease.
Glamping to enjoy luxurious camping casually
THE BAMBOO FOREST is a new facility where you can enjoy such glamping and zoo at the same time. Accommodation facilities include three types of comfortable dome tent, Lotus Belle tent, and treehouse type lodge made exclusively for glamping. Furthermore, because it is attached to the petting zoo Sayuri World, a sister zoo of Ichihara Elephant Kingdom, you can also enjoy the animal-contacting events unique to the zoo-side facilities, such as feeding experiences.
Enjoy a luxurious dinner in a luxurious space
