Here at Exclusive Tents we are no stranger to “FAQ’s”! This is because there is a lot to know about these premium structures. Here are a couple of questions we get a lot that I’ll answer in this post.
From where do the tents ship and where are they made?
Our tents are made and shipped directly from our factory in South Africa to any destination port worldwide. We handle all freight logistics to the destination port, where the customer or their agent takes over. Durban is the dispatch port for ocean freight and JNB is the dispatch port for air freight. Please note we have worked with a customs clearing agent company that has extensive knowledge in handling the majority of our USA clientele. This company bills the client directly and there is absolutely zero commissions received by us for recommending their services.
Crafted with the location in mind: These Exclusive Tents are in the southern Utah desert 🏜. It gets pretty hot in the summer so we insulated the canvas to help contain the cool air provided by an air conditioner. We used mild steel for these frames since we weren’t concerned about rust and corrosion in such an arid environment here. 4 layers of roofing made of different materials to help kill any baking effect from the harsh sun. Tell us about your local environment and we’ll discuss how our tents can be adapted to help you thrive in pure comfort.
The “twins” as we lovingly call them have arrived on site in New Zealand at @waitomoglamping and are going to come to life! Just look at the beefy mega frame we’ve built for these beauties to handle some serious snow loads. I’ll post updates as much as I can 🙌
Here is a covered area we crafted for a restaurant so they could have a unique outdoor dining area. Isn’t it amazing that we can make our rooflines look like it’s stretched over the structure like saran wrap? It’s an amazing aesthetic, but this has nothing to do with stretching fabric (like stretch tents). This is precision cuts (to the millimeter), vertical stitching that only the hands of our master canvas crafters can achieve here at Exclusive Tents 🙌
“Every stitch stitched, every piece of canvas cut, and every welded piece of steel is our form of art. To us, these are more than just tents, these are pieces of art crafted from our hands with passion and love.”

An Exclusive Tents is not the type of tent that is just setup on the grass or the dirt. It has a much more permanent nature to it than that type of tent and therefore needs a proper platform of some kind. Typically we see a lot of wooden/composite decks. But folks do use cement slabs and we’ve even seen flagstone platforms which is very cool!
It has be so HOT lately these past few months for glamping 🥵. Luckily seasons aren’t an issues in an Exclusive Tents. A good air conditioner and maybe some optional insulation will defy this triple digit summer. Those clear PVC window overlays will keep things nice and bright inside of the tent if you have to close it up. And just to put a cherry on top of it all… a nice splash pool with cool waters is always a nice touch as well 😃
Fun fact: our tents have a whopping 4 layers of roofing which is why you never feel any baking effect taking place inside of our tents.
How are Exclusive Tents typically utilized? We’ll we typically see 2 situations.
Situation 1: somebody or a group is utilizing these tents to create or grow a glamping/accommodation business. This ranges from a single unit Air BNB to an entire luxuryresort development.
Situation 2: somebody has a beautiful property and wants to create a unique home like the one in the picture here.
Fun fact: A client once ordered one of our ”Safari Collection” tents to be his garage and workshop for his Land Rover Defender… that was pretty cool! I wish I had some photos of that to share with you all.
As promised yesterday, I thought I would share some photos of the “Teak Tent” in Costa Rica. I think this tent has an extremly unique shower because its completly open. No curtain, no walls and no shower pan… Just you and the water. The water just drains through the wood and into some hidden infrastructure. Sometimes less is more!
Have you ever heard of the “Bamboo Tent” in #costarica? This is an Exclusive Tents “Mudanda” tent. That bamboo shower inside is just one of a kind dont you think? this tent has a twin called the ”Teak Tent” which I’ll show you tomorrow.
Happy #friday guys! Today were doing what we do best. We’re working with our hands and we’re making the best canvas tents on planet earth! Who knows what amazing project comes in next? For an Exclusive Tents #mastercanvascrafter this is what life is all about.
