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)

We bought this tent because we fell in love with it when we saw it in go outdoors. Cant fault it there's masses of room, we only used it twice so far and are going to get the porch for it. It took us about half an hour to put up , we found trying to put it up when windy can be difficult with it blowing all over, and one of the poles broke but got a replacement pole from go outdoors for 5 and they fixed it while I waited. Would recommend anyone to buy this tent.

Just got back from 3 days camping in Malvern Worcestershire . We bought the Kalahari 10 tent and porch having upgraded from the Zenobia. The Zenobia is a brilliant tent but we wanted something slightly bigger. We erected the marquee/tent, my god its big, but beautiful. Its just as easy to put up as the Zenobia even in high winds. I know its a few quid more but worth every penny. We love it. I think with both these tents you do need the porch which is so good for storage/cooking. There are about 65 pegs to knock in and pull out and I found this a real bind. Someone suggested the screw in pegs using a cordless drill. We bought 40 to try them out and they are the best thing ever. No more knocking in pegs for me. Went straight out and bought 2 more boxes. . They screw straight in, even in hard ground, reverse the drill to remove them and they pop straight out. We removed all our 65 pegs in about 5 minutes. They are a must. Please try them and you will never go back to knocking in pegs again! They work out at about 1 each or less if you buy online.

Just to finish off big thanks to Blackmore campsite. It was beautifully clean. The staff were very helpful and we hope to visit again soon.

This is the most fantastic tent in the world. It takes approx 20 mins to put up, a bit longer to knock all the tent pegs in etc. It feels like a mansion inside! It is warm and comfortable. We use it for just the two of us, and it means we have space and we're not living on top of each other when we are camping. However, we have also used it with the two bedrooms assembled and two children with us too and there has still been plenty of room.

It has withstood gales and torrential rain (we are not fair weather campers and often camp in November). Everything seems to have been thought of - dividers for the bedroom, pockets to put things in. I absolutely ADORE this tent and would live in it all year around if I could! When its just boyfriend, me and the dog, we just put the one bedroom up and we have so much space for chairs, cooking, dog bed etc. Love it!

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.
