A great place to begin a round the world camping trip is the USA with a group camping adventure from New York to Los Angeles, via the Whitehouse, the jazz bars of New Orleans, the stunning Carlsbad Caverns, epic Monument Valley, glitzy Las Vegas, and - of course - the Grand Canyon.
Then, why not fly to Cancun for the next leg of your round the world trip. Here, join a new group and camp all along the Ruta Maya. Some of the highlights include the Mayan ruins at Palenque, the bohemian mountain village of San Cristobal, famous for its Zapatista movement, and the temples of Tikal, deep in the jungles of Guatemala, not to mention the postcard-perfect beaches of Tulum. The trip will bring you back around to Cancun, where you can have a brief rest before continuing to travel around the world.
Next, you can continue travelling around the world with a few months in South America on a camping trip from Quito in Ecuador to Santiago in Chile. In Ecuador, you can explore the dense Amazon Jungle and cycle down volcanoes, in Peru you can follow the footsteps of the Incas on the Inca Trail and hike to Macchu Picchu, and in Bolivia you can stay overnight with local Indians and experience the vastness of the uninhabited Salt Flats of Uyuni. Finally, the South American part of your round the world trip ends in the cosmopolitan capital of Santiago de Chile.
After this, the next logical stop on your round the world trip is New Zealand, where you can take a hop on hop off bus tour, camping as you go. You can follow this with Australia, and see the very best that Eastern and Central Australia has to offer from Sydney to Moreton Island, the Great Barrier Reef and the Northern Rainforests. Travel through the open Savannah country, then up to the tropical Darwin and the World Heritage listed Kakadu National Park. Spend time learning some of the aboriginal ancient ways, head South to Alice Springs, hike Kings Canyon then marvel at the enormity of Ayers Rock and the awe inspiring Kata Tjuta (the Olgas).
Once you've explored the Land Down Under, you can continue your round the world trip to Africa, travelling all the way up from Cape Town to Nairobi during an epic overland adventure. On a trip like this, you'll see incredible landscapes, culture and wildlife you could imagine. From the tropical coast of Zanzibar to the austere Skeleton Coast, the Serengeti, the Ngorongoro Crater and Etosha National Parks to Victoria Falls and Swakopmund.
That's it - a quick guide to camping around the world from the US to Africa. If you've got the time and the money, you could even continue travelling around the world, all the way up from Nairobi across Ethiopia and the Sudan to Istanbul and then home through Europe. Of course, there are all kinds of ways to travel around the world, so if camping isn't your thing, there will definitely be another way to go.
