The rooftop tents are of a high-quality suitable for the unpredictable weather changes. We mostly us the Tentco type of tents on this option as they are properly ventilated, insulated, and protected from the elements of harsh climatic conditions. They are also spacious enough to accommodate 2 people comfortably.
The vehicles for single rooftop camping are suitable for all weather and we ensure their extra 4wd options are on point. We only use Land cruisers, from the Prado TX to the bigger Land cruiser V8s and the harder Land cruiser LX. They have a sturdy roof rack capable of supporting the weight of the tent.
Besides a spare tire and other emergency tools such as a jerk and spanner, axe and spades etc. the camping vehicles are equipped with other camping equipment such as;
Bedding: We ensure you have a comfortable sleeping setup. We provide 2 sleeping bags or blankets, 2 pillows, a mattress pad or sleeping mat in the tent and 2 bed sheets.
Lighting lamp or torch to provide illumination at night in and outside the tent when camping in areas with limited or no electricity.
Cooking Equipment: We always assume you have to cook some meals on your own. We include a cooking gas stove and cooking utensils such as pots, pans, and utensils. These are accompanied by serving utensils including plates, bowls, cups, chopping boards and cutlery.
A 10-litre jerrycan for water storage, a storage box for your non-perishable food items such as canned goods, dried fruits, nuts, granola bars, and other easy-to-prepare camping meals.
At an extra of $5, we can add an electronic fridge if you’re carrying perishable food items or beverages. Not forgetting lightweight folding chairs and a portable camping table for comfortable dining and relaxation at your campsite after the day.
Since it is a new experience, most travelers find it very adventurous. It is some sort of camping but it is not done on the ground but done on the roof of the car. Travelers tend to sleep in the tent put on the roof on the car. While on a self-drive safari, the client gets to an authorized wilderness place and camps for an overnight.
When it comes to the accommodation part of it, it is safer than ground camping services. With the rooftop tent, the traveler sleeps at the top of the roof of the car which is almost out of reach to wild animals as opposed to the ground tents where by at times a traveler has to put up with the wild animals on a fateful day.
Traveler hits two birds with one stone. The traveler gets covered for both transport and accommodation services at an affordable price. A car with a rooftop tent is normally hired at cost of 95$ only which is cheaper than hiring a car for 100$ per day and then book accommodation for another 100$. It also saves time since the traveler books accommodation and transport services at ago other than booking the latter separately that can take a lot of time.
