The Hi Gear Kalahari 8 Eclipse is a spacious, stable and comfortable tunnel-style tent with two large partitionable bedrooms in a face-to-face layout, roomy enough for you, your family and all your gear.

The bedrooms comfortably sleep four at each end of the tent, in 2+2 inners with breathable polyester walls. They’re made using darkened ‘Eclipse’ fabric that blocks out daylight, keeping it cool and dark inside so you get a better night’s sleep. The bedrooms can also be removed, to give you extra storage space, or room for dirty gear.

Hi Gear Eclipse’ bedrooms use light-blocking fabric so you get a better, longer night’s sleep – no more unwanted early mornings because of the bright dawn light!

The large living space has two large windows and hanging storage pockets to help keep it tidy, organised and liveable. Multiple vents along the roof help air flow throughout the tent.

The sewn-in groundsheet couples with the fire-retardant polyester flysheet give you a ventilated interior that’s completely protected from draughts and downpours. The two doors can prop and extend out for extra shelter, or to expand your relaxation space.

Other useful features include the water-repellent zips and dual electrical cable access points. Pre-attached high-visibility guylines, reduced pole sleeves, and the sewn-in groundsheet make pitching quick and easy.
