Technical Specifications


All our tents are UV-resistant, rot-proof, water-resistant and an optional extra can be made fire-retardant. Each tent can be engineered to meet project-specific wind & snow load building codes.

Heating & Cooling

Our tents allow for additional features such as insulated canvas, heating stoves and air conditioning systems where required.

Canvas Body

At Bushtec Safari we make use of the highest quality 550 gsm ripstop canvas for the full tent body to ensure the durability of our tents. In addition, our canvas also undergoes a colour fastening treatment to minimize colour fading over time.


Our structures have up to four layers to optimize durability, ventilation and temperature.

1. Shade net flysheet
2. PVC flysheet
3. Canvas roof
4. Ceiling


When it comes to windows we make use of small, large or high windows with shade netting to enable ventilation and deter bugs. Outer canvas flaps are used to close windows
during rainstorms.


High quality Velcro and YKK zipper combinations ensure durability and easy maintenance on our canvas doors. Innovative solutions allow for the perfect fitments of hard doors.
