What is a Tree Tent?
What is a tree tent?
Tentsile Tree Tents and Hammock Tents were originally conceived as portable treehouses; combining the portability and versatility of a hammock with the comfort, security and multi-person occupancy of a tent.
Our Tree Tents and Giant Hammocks use 3 trees or structural anchor points, to create suspended shelters or you and your friends to relax and enjoy.
They give you plenty of space to move around inside, suspended above sloping, uneven, muddy, lumpy and bumpy ground conditions, all the time fully protected from insects and other critters.
Whether you are looking for an all-terrain camping solution, a safari safe house, a mountain / beach retreat, or a pop-up garden treehouse that avoids planning restrictions, they'll give you a camping experience like no other.
Our Tree Tents are made to the highest quality and safety standards and are the amongst the most robust tents available anywhere in the world.
We manufacture our range in a purpose-built factory, and every Tentsile is quality checked before it leaves. We offer a satisfaction guarantee, and a 1-Year Warranty on all materials and assembly (excluding ratchets, straps and commercial use).
What makes our tents special?
Tentsile Tree Tents and Giant Hammocks offer a level of comfort you just haven’t experienced before; the best night’s sleep you’ve ever had in a tent.
Each unit incorporates our unique and patented anti-roll strap system which creates separate sleeping areas so you won't all roll to the middle of the tent. Our designs are full of innovative, practical, cutting edge features that you will never have seen before on any other outdoor equipment.
Being suspended in the trees is a magical experience, a disconnect from hum-drum reality, while connecting you directly to nature. They also come with the added benefits of utilising the trees themselves to provide shade from the sun, so you won't wake up sweating.
Each tent comes with an oversized waterproof rainfly (5000HH and 30+ UVP), which keeps you dry in the harshest downpour. With the rainfly extended, you will also gain the huge area underneath the tent, as a living room or place to keep all of your gear and camping equipment dry, all protected under one roof.
When combined with our Giant Hammocks, the Tree Tents allow you to create Tentsile Stacks; unique multi-storey camping solutions unlike anything else on the market - and so much fun! We are confident that you’ll never go back to ground camping after you try, a Tentsile.
Tentsile Hammocks vs. Traditional Hammocks
Traditional hammocks can be set up almost anywhere and offer levels of versatility that is be hard to match with a conventional tent. However, traditionally hammocks force you to sleep on your back with little elbow space. Thanks to the sag, is also very difficult to share a hammock, making it a pretty solitary experience.
Tentsile hammocks are suspended between 3 anchor points, giving them a third dimension and allowing freedom of movement inside a structure which has a huge tensioned fabric floor. Using simple ratchets to create an incredibly comfortable surface on which to chill and sleep on your back, front or sideways!
Our hammocks are reinforced with seat-belt webbing providing a structurally supportive floor that does not sag like a traditional hammock. All the straps are fully adjustable to compensate for weight differentials of the occupants and create distinct, individual sleeping bays, preventing everyone inside from rolling into the middle.
Rated to hold 880lbs / 400kg, our bigger units can cope with more than enough weight of most groups and their gear, for every conceivable type of adventure.Explore Tentsile Hammocks
Tentsile Tree Tents vs. Standard Hammock Tents
We've already outlined why Tentsiles are more comfortable than traditional hammocks and the same reasons apply to camping hammock tents.
Most camping hammocks come with an insect mesh and rainfly but in the end, you’ll be alone, your back will ache from being forced into a single sleeping position and you’ll have little to move around.
Tentsile Tree Tents give you all the positive experiences you just can’t get in a hammock tent; space to move, space for gear, space for friends to share the experience with and all that glorious ground area under the tent and massive rain fly.
Aside from the UNA 1-Person Tree Tent (designed for solo adventurers), all our tents and hammocks can accommodate 2 or more adults, allowing you and your loved ones to enjoy the Great Outdoors in an amazing new way, suspended like a cloud in pure comfort, floating above the forest floor.Explore Tentsile Tree Tents
