Discover luxury safari lodges and tented camps in Zion National Park, United States
Famous for its towering cliffs of rust-red sandstone, Zion National Park looks like it’s stepped straight from a scene in a Western. The park covers a swathe of mountainous terrain that borders the Colorado Plateau, Great Basin and Mojave Desert, and most would agree that it got the best of all three. The mesas, canyons and rock arches of the plateau meet the scrubby greens of the basin and the rich, rusty colours of the desert, creating scenery so beautiful it could strike you stock still. Most visitors come for the trails, particularly those in vast Zion Canyon, the result of the Virgin River carving its way through thousands of feet of layered sandstone. Others come to live out their Western fantasies on horseback tours and wild-swimming adventures, or simply spend a few nights under the starry Mojave sky.
