  • Instructions
  • 5000mm aqua rated The waterproofness of polyester is rated in mm which refers to water column height in millimetres. This fabric will withstand a 5000mm column of water for more than one minute before a single drop might appear through the fabric. The thicker the coating the longer the aqua rating lasts so Kiwi Camping double-coat our polyester, meaning our aqua rating is the minimum waterproofness, rather than the maximum.
  • 75 denier fabric Strong, durable 75D polyester with a polyurethane (PU) waterproof coating. This fabric has superior tensile strength and is 8 times more durable than nylon. Our 75D fabric won’t stretch or sag when wet like other materials do and is a heavier quality than comparable fabrics.
  • Seam sealed The seams of your dome tent or shelter are the most vulnerable for water leakage. We use a custom-developed method of heat-sealing tape over the seams to maintain waterproofing, resulting in maximum protection against the elements at all points.
  • Double stitched seams Lap felled seam construction (doubling seams around on each other) with double stitching ensures maximum strength around the seams of your tent.
  • UV protection For added safety and comfort the fabric has UPF 50+UV protection.
  • Fire retardant The fabric has also been treated with a fire retardant solution. Even with this protection, ensure you take particular care around heat and flames. Avoid using open flame, heating or cooking appliances in or around your tent.
  • Hybrid frame A hybrid frame combines the flexibility of fibreglass with the strength of steel. It provides superior wind stability without compromising the height or volume inside the tent. This system holds the walls out more vertically and makes them easier to erect.
  • Pin and ring pole attachment Quick and easy pole assembly and dismantling system.
  • Tri-tensioners We use triangle-shaped guy rope tensioners rather than in-line tensioners to ensure the ropes do not slip.
  • Speed-Clips Fast and efficient for erecting the tent. Flexibility allows for movement in windy conditions.
  • Storage pockets Handy storage to easily locate important items and to minimise clutter.
  • Lantern hanging points Conveniently located tabs to hang LED lanterns.
  • Size (mm): 3000 W x 2300 H x 3000 D
  • Weight: 12.4kg

    Awesome shelter had it up 24/7 for 2 months in the worst weather the waikato could throw at it and it cam through with flying colours. Would certainly recommend
  • Good quality & price, slight design flaw Tan Miller

    I purchased a Kiwi Camping Savanna 3 shelter to take away to sporting events. My husband and I are triathletes and needed a base for the kids to hang out in while we race. The Savanna is a quality shelter at a good price. I also like the range of different wall types. I’ve purchased a PVC Wall and a wall with a door so the whole shelter can be fully enclosed (it comes with 2 solid walls) Unfortunately the Savanna is tricky & time consuming to put up especially on a windy day or at dusk before the race starts. I’d advise watching the video online first so you have a clear idea of how to do it. Also the walls don’t go all the way to the ground so you get breeze blowing through underneath which can mean cold children! It’s a real design flaw and hopefully one they’ll address on newer models. Overall though we are mostly happy with it. Thanks!
