DUBBO, Australia -- The name says it all: Zoofari Lodge. It may be a collection of tents in the Australian bush, but there is nothing rough about it. This is luxurious "glamping" (short for "glamorous camping") featuring air-conditioning, big soft beds, huge baths with showers, mini-bars, movie-star bath robes, and private viewing lounges overlooking a magical parade of rhinoceroses, giraffes, zebras, antelopes and ostriches.
