CANVALODGE MANUFACTURERS are specialists in the manufacturing of tents and canvas products. When we design our products, we combine years of experience in tent manufacturing, the textile industry and intensive market research to meet and establish the exact needs of the user.

We incorporated all these aspects in a beautiful, yet practical product to reflect a truly African atmosphere set in the ambience of luxury, for those seeking solace from the stress and strain of everyday life.

Choosing the most appropriate raw materials is in itself only half a solution if not combined with an excellent design. There must be particular consideration and emphasis given to the practical needs of the user, together with aesthetically attractive features.

Our tents meet the most demanding standards to create products of export quality. We are not in the cheap or quick fix market but rather manufacture products to last but almost a lifetime.


CANVALODGE TENT MANUFACTURERS specialize in the manufacturing of tents and canvas products that are tailor made for comfort in the wilderness. We are known for designing and developing products that are unique and pay special attention to customized detail, to individual support and to care for the specific needs of our clients.

Besides our South African clients, some of our satisfied international clients include individuals, owners of Safari Tour Operators, Game Lodges and Tented Camps from all over the world like Angola, Australia, Brazil, The Netherlands, France, Ghana, Kenya, Malawi, Mozambique, Tanzania and Zambia to name but a few.

Adventure seekers and clients that love the great outdoors as offered in a beautiful country such as South Africa are invited to visit our factory or just to drop in when passing by. We are situated next to the N12 route, on the doorstep of Potchefstroom, the friendly home of Sport in the North West Province.


It is part of our trade mark to explore or initiate new products and with the input of our clients we deliver products perfect for your taste and need, a service rarely found somewhere else. Innovative and improved methods for tolerating the weather and curing, treating, laminating and strengthening canvas, enable us to improve existing products and introduce new ones with regularity, always adding value.

Our client base also includes the military and humanitarian organizations. Their satisfaction with delivered products goes hand in hand with military specifications. Whether it's a custom designed tented safari camp in the heart of the African bush, a mess tent designed for military use in the desert, a camping tent for family holidays and weekends away, a fold-up bush shower, or any other canvas, nylon or PVC product, discerning users prefer the Canvalodge brand every time!


CANVALODGE TENT MANUFACTURERS not only manufacture Military and Luxury Safari Lodge tents but we offer a wide range of tents suitable for everyone. We also custom made to client specifications and offer a wide range of various other canvas and PVC products. For more detail visit our Product Catalogue pages.


CANVALODGE is not a retail outlet but a manufacturer and thus do not carry stock of all the products. We specialize in larger order quantities but also sell directly to the public with a lead time of 15-17 working days from receipt of a 70% deposit. Date of delivery is normally based on workload at the factory at the time of order.
