Sleeping in Tents in South Africa’s Beautiful Outdoors
Camping is a fun and enjoyable way of experiencing the great outdoors and South Africa offers a plethora of campsites for locals and tourists to enjoy. But when you go camping, you need the right gear to ensure that you have everything to get through a day in the bush. Mandatory gear would include food-preparation tools, such as a portable braai, and sleeping equipment to get through the night. Some people prefer to take their caravans, while others like to sleep in tents underneath the stars. Whatever your preference, we have you covered.
We specialise in providing our customers with a wide selection of camping and 4×4 gear to make the most of their outdoor experiences. If you are a 4×4 enthusiast who loves to break away, our off-road caravans can be ideal for your next journey. We also have a fitment centre that can fit some useful accessories and upgrades to your vehicle. Our selection of tents will interest you as well, should you prefer not to tow a caravan and explore where you want. South Africa is your playground with us on your side.
Our Selection of Tents
Since people have different approaches to camping, we offer a selection of tents to suit your needs. If you prefer to sleep on the ground, our Bushveld bow tents might just prove ideal. We offer them in three sizes, namely 2,1-, 2,4-, and 3-m options. Featuring the standard bow-type layout and design, they are easy to erect and quick to dismantle. The only thing that is left is to decide on is an ideal size for you and your party. Adult couples can easily fit into the smaller versions, while the 3-m version can sleep up to four people.
Being adventurous sometimes involves considering a few alternative solutions when exploring the wilderness in your 4×4. Therefore, we offer tents that adapt to your needs. Our rooftop options allow you to set up your tent using the freely available sleeping space on top of your 4×4. These versions are specifically designed to be mounted on top of the vehicle so that you can sleep almost anywhere you find an appropriate spot to park it. These are very handy for hardcore off-road exploring, ensuring that you will always have secure, elevated sleeping quarters.
The sun can become extremely hot in South Africa when camping and shade is your friend in the Bushveld. Apart from our rooftop tents, we also offer awnings that can be mounted on the roof of your vehicle. Since most bakkies and SUVs are large and tall vehicles, adding an awning will create some welcoming shade to enjoy on a hot Bushveld day. You might not be able to do anything about the intense South African heat but you can create a welcoming campsite with lovely shade.
