Well what can I say we brought this tent just in time in the go outdoors sale (had a job getting everything we wanted but got there in the end) we brought the tent, the porch and the carpet, we did order the ground sheet but this was sold out twice when we tried so we have given up on that one.

We recently tried out our new tent not for from home (just in case) it took us about 1hr to put up the whole tent including the inners but I think this time would be reduced now as we know how it goes. We love the size as its huge, in fact we joke that our tent is bigger than our house!. Its a tall tent as well as I am 5'9 there was plenty of head height there are 4 large bedrooms , there are six of us 2 adults and 4 kids and we used one end solely for the kids and had two other bedrooms on the other side one for us and the wardrobe (there was plenty of room) and the other our toilet. The living area space was so large we had our picnic table and chairs and a high chair in and still the kids had room to play.

We brought the porch and are so glad we did as we used this part for our kitchen and food (and to take muddy shoes off before entering the tent) we love the fact that we could zip it up so no rain can get in( we had torrential rain for the second night and no leeks) as we had this problem with out last tent and porch. There are loads of pockets inside the tent which come in very useful. We also recommend the carpet, never had one before but boy does it make a difference especially on a cold September weekend! we are so proud of our tent now and are planning some longer trips further away which we not have considered in our last tent.

We bought this tent in June 2010, huge tent with loads of space, it has four bedrooms and we only need two so we use the other as a changing room, and storage. Etc. We had a bit of a struggle on the first attempt at putting up, as we were novice at camping but we now have it down to 40 minutes with just 2 adults putting it up. Great value for money though we paid 360.00 it was up for sale at 200.00 4 weeks later. We also bought the footprint and indoor carpet, which we have found makes the inside a little warmer underfoot. We have had lots of people ask us about this tent when we are camping have recommend buying it. Fits in two bags which aren't that heavy although not yet go the knack of getting the tent into the bag as easy. Tried to buy the porch this year but it seems to be sold out everywhere. Just got back from camping this weekend and it rained on the Friday night, we had no leaks and wasnt bothered by the wind.

We bought this tent in May 2010, huge tent with loads of space, it has four bedrooms and we only need three but the other one is excellent for storage of bags/boxes etc. Very easy to put up, on our first ever attempt it took 30 minutes. Great value for money if you buy when in a sale. Selling for around 200 now, though we paid 360. We have had lots of people ask us about this tent when we are camping and always recommend buying it. Fits in two bags which aren't that heavy and we are going to buy the porch to go with it next. No problems with wind and rain either. All in all, very pleased with it.

We bought this tent as we have 4 children and plan on more so thought it would be handy having the extra space. We have only used it once but loved being in there that much that our 3 day planned trip turned into 9 days. We had all sorts of weather to hot days to gale force wind which our tent withstood very well. We bought the footprint which is a must in bad weather and we also have the carpet and the porch. We were a bit disappointed with porch in bad weather as it stores water on the top and the wind blows through it really bad, so could do with an extra strap to help hold it down. My husband had to tighten it on several occasions. Apart from that it came in handy for cooking in when the weather was bad, and also used our porta toilet in there of a night for our children.

Just bought this tent from Go Outdoors in sale. Also got the carpet/footprint. Wanted the porch as well but none in stock - will be returning for that later! What a fantastic tent for the money. We have 2 small children and there is absolutely bags of space. It's also an absolute dream to erect - my hubbie and I are both small so one of the main criteria for us was that it would be simple to put up. First time it took us just 45 minutes to put up the tent bedrooms and to peg it (we needed a small step to get the bedroom tents up!). We both said afterwards either of us could have put the tent up single-handed if weather conditions were favourable. I agree it's a little dark inside and this will only be worse with the addition of the porch, another window would be great. But this is the only reason I've given the tent 9 and not 10.

Brought this tent in the go outdoors sale 200 and the carpet and footprint making it up to 245 all in. What a great tent, loads of space, 2 great massive sleeping pods each end, loads of wall hangers to put stuff in. Pitched up ok , it needs 2 people to pitch. The footprint is well worth 20, keeps the bottom of tent clean and no rips. Could do with a another window in side, was a bit dark. Had some very heavy wind and took it well, tightened the guys now and then. Am after a porch now

We love this tent its great! we have been away twice this year in and we have had a mixture of weather and the tent has stood all of this! we were in Brighton at the weekend and it was really windy on Sunday and everyone on the campsite was commenting how strong are tent was as all the other tents were blowing about. It doesn't take to long to put up and is very simple to do! we love this tent and cant wait to use it again.

Brought this from go outdoors for 200. It took myself and my husband about 1 hour to put up. The worst part was threading the poles through and then standing them all up, in the wind and rain this is not easy. Once the tent was up and pegged down, the bedding area was easy. This is a very spacious tent, the kids had there own play room for there lego. Lots of pockets. The fly nets are excellent our old tent did not have any (lots of wasps near our tent but could not get in). We had heavy rain and wind for a couple of hours. No leaks, comes with a repair kit in case. The only downside is when you open the doors and the water drips in the tent. We took old towels to mop up. Would recommend this tent especially at this price.

We bought this from Go-outdoors, when they had it on sale, we also bought the extra ground sheet, porch and carpet. There are only 5 of us, but with 2 adults, 3 kids and all the gear, we used one bedroom for storage and still had loads of room. Managed to break one of the poles as we pitched it, but that is easily dealt with. All in all a fantastic tent, best buy we have made.

Just bought one at Go Outdoors for 200 plus carpet 25 plus porch 25 ( if you buy a tent all the accessories are 50% discount at the moment). Can't wait to go camping this weekend. Owned a Leben Munich 9 before this one, very flimsy but same size. Kalahari 10 is very well made and is made by Gelert but branded for Go Outdoors hence called Hi Gear ( Shop assistant told me)

Manufacturer's Description

An updated version of Hi Gear's extra large tunnel tent, perfect for relaxed family camping holidays.

The Hi Gear Kalahari 10 Elite is a spacious and stable tunnel-style tent with two large partitionable bedrooms in a face-to-face layout, roomy enough for you, your family and all your gear.

Pre-attached high-visibility guylines, reduced pole sleeves, and sewn-in polyethylene groundsheet make pitching the tent quick and easy.

The bedrooms comfortably sleep five at each end of the tent, and have breathable polyester walls. Bedrooms can also be removed, to give you extra storage space, or room for dirty gear.

The huge living space has two large windows and hanging storage pockets to help keep it tidy, organised and liveable. Multiple vents along the roof help air flow throughout the tent.

The sewn-in groundsheet combined with the fire-retardant polyester flysheet (with 4000mm hydrostatic head) give you a fully sealed and ventilated internal environment, so you'll be completely protected from draughts and sustained downpours. The two doors can be propped and extended out to use for extra shelter from rain or stretching the space out for more room if it's sunny.

Other useful features include the water-repellent zips and an electrical cable access point.
