Do you love camping but have trouble convincing your cynical partner, family, or friends of just how fun this activity really is? Despite your constant badgering and hard selling, all you end up with is more negative comments than you’d hear at a pessimists’ picnic.
Don’t fear – finally there is an answer to your problem: safari tents. These stylish tents are an emerging ‘glamping’ accommodation trend that provides you and your guests with the ultimate compromise. They allow you to experience all the fun of camping but combine this with several creature comforts, while also eliminating the need to set up and pack away a tent. It’s perfect!
Featuring both queen and single beds, these trouble-free tents often come with a shower, fridge/freezer, and microwave, meaning all you have to do is step right up, walk right in, and start camping.
