Because the world is not flat.
Tentsile was conceived as a portable treehouse, combining the comfort and versatility of a hammock with the security of a tent. This 3 person suspended shelter your comfortable camping to a new level!
WHAT IS TENTSILE
At Tentsile we create some of the world's most versatile tents. All our tree tents are made to be suspended over the ground but in dry conditions can also be pitched on it, like a conventional tent. Whether you are looking for an all terrain camping solution, a safari safe house, a mountain, beach retreat, or a portable treehouse that avoids all planning restrictions, with the Tentsile tree tent the sky is the limit.
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS
The unique design, provides comfortable and spacious accommodation in any environment. The Tentsile Stingray tree tent can be suspended above the ground and so is not restricted by ground conditions or topography. This advantage also provides separation from water logged areas, insects, snakes and major predators.
HOW IT'S MADE
The structure comprises an adjustable frame of webbing straps with UV resistant PU coated and waterproof polyester-nylon fabric panels. The frame is held in tension by webbing straps that meet at each of the three anchor points, and under the floor to divide the space into individual hammocks
HOW CAN YOU USE IT
All Tentsile tree tents provide shelter with no ecological footprint or environmental impact. We recommend that the tent is set up no higher than 1.2m/4 feet off the ground for ease of access and to minimise risk of injury. The Tentsile tree tents come with all elements needed for instant set-up and a Owner's Instruction Manual.
The Tentsile is adaptable for uses such as:
