Buying a glamping tent is a considerable investment. A smart investment, but absolutely one you only make after careful deliberation. Therefore we asked James, glamping advisor at safari tent supplier Outstanding: What aspects you need to pay attention to when buying a safari tent?
Unique tent with return
“In principle, all customers have the same goal in mind: buying a safari tent or lodge. But the search for the ideal glamping accommodation goes beyond purchasing just any tent”, says James. “And we owe it to our customers to help them find the perfect tent”.
Every campsite owner wants to offer an unforgettable glamping experience and every camper is looking for a tent with the wow factor. However, according to James, when you’re buying a tent, you need to look beyond mere appearances. “First, you’ll want it to have a good price-to-quality ratio”, he explains. “Then, you’ll want your investment to be cost-effective. And, lastly, you’ll want to have no concerns about the tent after you’ve bought it.”
Always a custom made tent
According to James it’s not necessary to know right away how many people you’re planning to accommodate, because their Outstanding safari tents are available in various sizes. Furthermore, they can furnish them in such a way that they’re suitable for both bigger and smaller families. “Perhaps you’re looking for stylish group accommodation. If so, we can simply extend your favourite tent by a couple of metres. If it’s not possible to expand at ground level, maybe our lodge with an optional extra floor is the right solution for you. Or perhaps you can make optimal use of the space you have with our narrower and most compact tent”, says James. “Our wide range always offers a fitting solution!”
A fitting interior for every tent
With Outstanding, you can choose exactly what you want: big or small, a little luxury or a lot, with or without a slide, a bed box or an extra floor. They offer countless options and according to James that’s why it’s crucial that they offer customers their expert advice. “Naturally, we have a few basic formats that will enable you can make best use of your space, not to mention set you apart from your competitors. By adding a slide to your glamping tent for example”, he says. “Is buying a safari tent with a slide impractical? There’s nothing children like more than sleeping in a tent with their own slide, as you’d expect! However, we do think it’s important for the tent not to lose space unnecessarily. The solution? The design looks like our bed box, but in reverse: an adventurous sleeping space below and a spacious playpen above the slide. Distinctive and practical,” James concludes enthusiastically.
