Brilliant, huge tent, easily put up(we are only beginners), able to stand up throughout, withstood heavy rain and strong winds. Two large sleeping compartments which each easily hold two double airbeds, although we only used one bedroom to give us massive living space. 2 adults and 2 kids. Value for money at go outdoors for 162.00 during a july 09 promotion.

We have just spent our 1st time away in this tent also at Rivendale and what a nice tent this is. We slept 7 with ease 3 adults, 12yr old, 15yr old and 17yr old. Loads of space for storage and a plus is that you can separated sleeping compartments with removable walls. Very easy to erect, we had rain and wind and were kept dry and safe. Would like to find an annexe/extension for door opening would make it easier if its wet rather than going straight into tent. We paid 189.99 from Go Outdoors a real bargain. This is definitely a tent to have, it is huge.

Bought the Kalahari 10 from Go Outdoors for 189 and also purchased the carpet 44.99 which is fab. Easy tent to put up (about 30 minutes) even though it's a big tent. We have used to twice so far and will be away again bank holiday. I would recommend to anyone. Lovely big area in the middle and didn't feel cramped. There were 2 adults and 3 kids using it. Great tent great price.

Just come back from our first camping weekend with the kalahari 10. Erected and all secured within 35 mins and that was just myself and 16 year old son which also included fitting 2 poles wrongly (looked at instructions after fitting first 2 poles I know its a man thing).

Had rain all night Saturday up in sunny Talgarth and it held up without any incident whatsoever in fact very cosy and warm. We slept 8 in there and felt we had loads of room .

I have no real criticism of the tent whatsoever so all I can say was I had a bargain at 189.00.

My wife and I have just returned from a ten day camping holiday in France with this tent. We are both new to camping and only picked up the Kalahari 10 on the day we left, with no chance to practice putting it up due to bad weather. On arrival at our campsite the rain started to pour down, but undaunted, and desperate for a cup of tea we set about unpacking it. Within an hour the tent was up, guy ropes adjusted and secure and the kettle happily whistling away.

I feel I have to add that this is by no means a ten person tent and in my opinion you would have to be very well acquainted to share it with another couple, but we wanted plenty of room for storage and living space. We paid 180 pounds (RRP 500) at Go Outdoors for this tent and couldn't be more pleased, it was spacious, comfortable and simple to erect.

On the fourth day at our site a bigger pitch became available, so rather than pack everything away, we simply unpegged the tent, pushed the poles together, (leaving them in the outer tent pole sleeves) and carried it to the other pitch, thankfully there was no wind or we might have been blown back to the UK.

On the last night, at around 2am we were battered by high winds, rain, and a ferocious thunder storm, the force of the wind pushed the end pole inwards, but it sprung back into shape when the wind eventually dropped. The tent stood up to the storm wonderfully, and not one of the seams leaked and although frightening we felt safe inside. I really cannot fault this tent, but make sure you are given a large pitch as it really is huge.

I have just been away for a few days to Rivendale in the Peak District, the weather was quite bad rain and flash flooding, although I haven't been camping for many years I was surprised how dry the tent was even in really bad weather. It was very easy to put up even with my wife just watching. The only problem I found with the kalahari 10 was upon opening the doors rain comes in and I cannot find an awning anywhere for this model of tent.

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.
