An 8 man tent that's great for long weekends with a group, or an extended family camp-out.
The Hi Gear Kalahari 8 is a spacious and stable tunnel-style tent that's packed with features and versatility for a stress-free camping experience.
This one of our best-sellers from our range of tents. It's pre-attached high-visibility guylines, slick pole sleeves, and sewn-in polyethylene groundsheet make pitching the tent a quick and easy affair.
The living space is a generous 7.6m², and the bedrooms comfortably sleep four at each end of the tent, in 2+2 inners with breathable polyester walls.The large living space has two 'privacy' windows and hanging storage pockets to help keep it tidy and liveable.
The sewn-in groundsheet combined with the fire-retardant polyester flysheet (with 3000mm 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 as a canopy, using the steel porch poles, giving you shelter from rain or stretching the space out for more room if it's sunny.
Other features include water-repellent zips, an electrical cable access point, and multiple ventilation points along the roof line.
And why not enhance the luxury and protection that your camping experience gives, with the Kalahari 8 carpet and the Kalahari 8 footprint?

Can't handle heavy rain, 29 August 2014
By Teledsk (Basildon)
Had the tent a year or so only used about 4 times, recently the second time in the rain. To be fair it was fairly heavy rain but leaks through seams and more worryingly through the skin of the tent everywhere, resulting in us using the bedroom side walls and towels on the floor to soak up water. It's worth noting the new kalahari is 1000 hh better but we aren't taking any more chances and now willing to spend the extra £££'s on another tent from another manufacturer (Outwell) which is an expensive lesson. Shame as it's a great size tent
Kalahari 8, 17 March 2014
By Sarah (Dudley)
After our tent blew down day 2 of 10 of our family holiday we had to buy another tent and found this not only a good price but better than the one that blew away! So spacious with loads of storage, it was easy to put and as the old tent took us 2-3 hours at a time was relieved to see this tent fly up in less than 10 minutes! Have since invested in the porch and have booked to go away in the summer again. We all love our new tent an look toward to spending lots more family fun in our lovely new tent
great tent for the price, 19 September 2013
excellent tent no problems easy to put up take down. love it can't fault it at all and would be unfair for the price to even mention any niggles. do not though buy the zenobi porch for it the gap is a pain at the bottom. seen loads of kalaharis whilst away with the proper Kalahari porch and it does look amazing when its down to the floor.

Amazing tent!, 30 August 2013
We have just returned from 4 nights away in this tent and are super impressed! I read other reviews after buying the tent and was slightly worried about the amount suggesting that the porch / footprint / carpet was virtually a necessity. We had none of the accessories; it is fantastic as it is! Having looked at the website before visiting the store I had provisionally decided on a budget 8 man tent but having looked this one pitched we were sold and I'm so glad we paid more for something of this quality. Having the bedrooms at the end and the communal area in the middle is ideal for keeping separate from the kids and the ability to keep the bedrooms open or divide them adds more flexibility. The ventilation is fantastic, it has two doors opposite each other for a through draft and we concluded keeping the bedroom vents closed at night but the lounge vents open was enough to keep condensation at bay. There's plenty of storage pockets and some hooks to hang things to dry although I might rig up a washing line next time. Really easy to put up, we didn't need instructions and it's very stable, stays up with no pegs which is surprising for a tunnel tent so I reckon you could put it up on your own if you had to! My only minor grumble is that putting the door on it's poles to provide shelter every morning / evening is a bit of a pain.
