You only have to look at the widespread adoption of 'glamping' to see that there's a growing desire for different, more luxurious ways to enjoy an outdoor holiday experience. Offering safari or bell tents is a cost effective way of attracting new holidaymakers, or giving existing guests a new and exciting accommodation option.
In the four years Clear Sky have been in business, we have become the 'go to' company for safari tents and it's not hard to see why. We specialise in supplying stunning safari tents, made to the very highest quality, but due to the fact we specialise in safari tents and manufacture in large numbers we are 30-40% lower in price than our competitors. Not only that, we run our own glamping site in Kent, which means from planning permission to creating a website we have done it all and we are happy to share our knowledge!
We offer a full support service and are happy to discuss your specific needs - simply submit an information request in the box to the right, or call us on 0845 299 6484.
