Lodge Tent

The Lodge Tent seems to be a rare beast in the UK but is much more common in Europe and Africa where it is popular as a luxury pre-erected tent. Given the size, weight and cost of these it is unlikely you would buy one outright but they do make a great base for a quality holiday

In design it is often a bit like a cross between a big ridge tent and frame tent to look at. It is close to what we might call a Bungalow tent (though the Europeans use that term for what we in the UK would call a Frametent)

Here is what a 'basic' Lodge tent would look like, (though this Cabanon is actually a trailer tent)


Many more esoteric and abstract shapes also exist for Lodge Tents at the expensive end of the luxury camping market
