Since the early 1900‘s, luxury Safari's have been a way for the royalty and the upper class of Europe and Colonial Africa to get close to nature without sacrificing comfort. Glamping (a modern term for luxury camping ), is the present way of experiencing a wilderness adventure in leisurely comfort without any of the work. Sit back and relax as the assembling of your tents, the outfitting of the campsite with all of the modern comfortable accommodations, to the preparing of gourmet style meals is all done by our professional staff. We developed the Arizona Luxury Expedition experience specifically for adventurous people looking to travel in an intimate, small-group environment. Explore breathtaking locations in Arizona with professionally guided activities, along with high quality food in stylish accommodations to be enjoyed at your own relaxed pace.
The farther in advance you book, the greater the availability of dates you will find. Feel free to call us at any time to talk with a representative about available tour dates, as well as review our list of available dates in the trip calendar section of the website.
We can accommodate groups from 2-20 persons. We customize our tours to usually a single family or a small group to assure that each guest receives personalized attention from our staff. There may be situations due to space availability that small groups will need to be combined at the campsite( not to exceed 6 guests in total for the site). The campsites that we utilize are spacious enough, giving all our guests PRIVACY around their own expedition tent.
All of our guides have a multiple years of Arizona guiding experience. Many have hiked hundreds of miles in the Grand Canyon and Sedona as well as all throughout Arizona, and are eager to share their wealth of information, as well as unveiling the secrets that all of these destinations hold. To assure that you have a safe as well as a memorable experience with Arizona Luxury Expeditions all of our guides have extensive wilderness medicine training and hold nationally accredited certifications in Advanced Wilderness First Aid, as well as the more advanced Wilderness First Responder curriculums. Your guides will always be equipped with medical supply packs on all of our activities, as well as being medically prepared in camp. All of us at ALE possess an enthusiasm and passion with Arizona, and we pride ourselves in sharing the natural beauty and the local history with all of our guests.
