What's a Safari Glamping Tent?

A safari glamping tent is a strong and sturdy type of shelter made from heavy canvas material. It has four straight walls which give it plenty of room inside, and can comfortably fit a small group of people.  Safari tents can be used all year round, and even have enough space for a wood stove to keep warm in colder weather.

Originally used in Africa, safari tents have a long history of providing shelter for adventurers on safari expeditions. These tents acted as a safe haven in the vast African wilderness, providing familiar comforts and shielding occupants from the harsh sun. 

Today, safari tents offer a unique and memorable glamping experience for families, friends, and couples alike. They’re the go-to standard for “glamping tents”.

At our North Carolina family campground, our safari glamping tents are built to last and can withstand even harsh weather conditions.  With plenty of room inside and a sturdy design, our safari tents offer a cozy place to stay while enjoying nature.

Unwind in the peaceful beauty of the great outdoors, surrounded by the comforting sights, smells, and sounds of nature that glamping provides. With all the modern comforts and none of the ‘survival camping’ experience, you can enjoy nature in a relaxing stress-free way.
The best part? No need to set up your tent or struggle to enter on your hands and knees! There’s enough headroom to stand up straight, and even eat dinner at the table with your family or friends.
