How do I extend the lifespan of my safari tents and glamping lodges with the right maintenance?
It is important to keep up with maintenance on your safari tents and glamping lodges to ensure years of enjoyment. Our glamping accommodation options generally need little maintenance and the tips below will help you make the most of your glamping investment.
The outer canvas needs relatively little upkeep. All our canvas has a UV coating and it is impregnated with a water- and dirt-resistant product. If you have stained canvas, carefully clean it with a soft brush or cloth with a little bit of water. We strongly advise against using any type of cleaning agent, as this will negatively affect the coating of the canvas and reduce the longevity of the product.
Always ensure good ventilation of the tents and lodges, both on the inside and around the exterior of the tents. Therefore, make sure that tents are not placed directly next to or nearby bushes or trees, to reduce the chance of damage due to algae, mildew or corrosion.
It is also important to check the tension of the tents and PVC roofs regularly. It is especially important to check the tension and make sure the lashings are secured properly after heavy storms and snowfall. We recommend clearing the roofs as soon as possible after heavy snowfall because of the weight it adds to the PVC roofs.
