The Campmor Safari Bow Single Extension is an addition that attaches to your Campmor Safari Bow Dome Tent to create an additional enclosed living area to accommodate families and larger groups. Popular for eco tourism operators who want a spacious and private set up for large families, durable enough to withstand regular and constant use. The rear dome can then be used as a bedroom, with the attached living room on the front to be used for gear storage, sitting and eating under cover. This set up has been chosen by a number of camp grounds catering for families and has been a popular option for hire to the public for a semi permanent camp site set up. This single extension is designed to fit the Safari Bow tent only. Note – the Safari Bow tent is sold separately and is not included here when you purchase this single extension.
Hundreds of the Safari Bow tents are being used today across Australia at holiday parks, zoos, mining companies, glamping sites, eco tourism, remote accommodation, scout groups, and tour companies. It offers a great amount of space inside for extra head room, comfort and air flow. This is our premium quality model with the best quality components for ongoing reliable performance. Since the Safari Bow Single Extension comes in its own independent bags, the Safari Bow tent can still be used on its own for a shorter weekend trip, or take the extension along for a longer holiday.
The added living room offers more than enough room to set up a table and chairs, store a portable fridge or eski, camp cupboards etc. Perfect for glamping sites where the internal space can be set up for comfort and luxury. This tent is the number 1 pick by many tour operators across Australia for its long life expectancy, internal space, and simplicity of set up.

The Campmor Safari Bow Single Extension Tent offers the highest quality components with enough room for a family, and plenty of standing room inside. One of our premium range of tents which use the highest quality canvas available, making them the strongest and most durable tents in the range which is why our commercial customer love them. These are the ONLY TENTS IN AUSTRALIA using this exclusive rip stop canvas, and these tents have been used and tested in the Australian market for more than 15 years proving their suitability, reliability and quality for a variety of Australian environments. Exclusive to Diamantina tents, and quality tested to pass the Category 5 quality assurance test.
The canvas is packed into a single zippered PVC carry bag, and the poles come in their own carry bag which is very compact. Its simple design means no guy ropes are required at all and the set up time for the tent and extension is approximately 25 minutes.
The 3mx3m floor area for the Safari Bow Dome Tent is the size of most pop up gazebos, which means 5 mattresses can fit on the ground that are 60cm wide each, or the space is perfect for a queen size bed in the middle. The central living space has a window on either side and offers an area of 3m x 3.3m with plenty of room for a table and chairs. This section does not have a sewn in floor. We highly recommend the CGear multi mat for this area. Why should you seriously consider this great little shelter ? Take a look firstly at every other dome tent on the market and you will find they all require guy ropes to set them up. If you don’t use the guy ropes and a wind comes along and breaks the poles, your warranty is void (read the fine print in warranty paperwork with all brands).
THIS TENT HAS BEEN TESTED IN 100KM WINDS WITHOUT GUY ROPES.
The poles didn’t break. That’s because instead of using hollow fiberglass poles or alloy poles that can easily fracture, these tents are made with SOLID CORE SPRING STEEL POLES. The spring steel is super strong but also very flexible, and has a memory to keep its shape and structure for many years of use. So we have the best frames. And they are so simple to set up. No fiddly extra bits to worry about. And you will feel secure in the knowledge this little tent will stand up to storms, so you can relax and sleep well.
The canvas used is a 400G RIP STOP POLY/ COTTON SAFARI CANVAS. Better than the canvas used in many swags. Its tough, has a superior tear strength, doesn’t fade quickly and can handle a few bumps and bruises along the way. The poly cotton blend means the canvas can breathe in hot climates and therefore reduces heat and condensation inside. This is a huge natural benefit for Australian climates that is not achieved in polyester or other synthetic tent materials.
The floor is 550g PVC. This is tougher than some camper trailer materials. No sewn seams on the floor. You wont wear a hole in this floor easily. The zippers used are YKK. Simply the worlds best. Do some research and find out how many other tents use these zips, most don’t.
Our commercial partners who have used these tents for years realise pretty quickly they have found the best, and keep re using these models. They just don’t have to deal with tears and breaks and lost parts like other tents. This is no fuss quality that you can rely on to do a great job.
Time and time again in camp sites all over Australia these tents outlast and out perform all other tents of a similar size in harsh weather conditions. Don’t pay attention to the latest marketing goop talking about pop up this and air pole that, the idea of convenience cant out perform a simple and strong product built to last.
Features and Benefits:
Virtually unbreakable solid core spring steel poles – never worry about dealing with a snapped pole again.
Exclusive rip stop poly/cotton canvas – the only tents that can be set up semi-permanently without fear of fading or deteriorating in the harsh Australian sun. No other tents dare to make this claim.
Category 5 compliance – meets strict quality control standards to offer the highest quality possible.
Cooler – the materials used allow hot air to escape, providing more comfort.
Quieter – These tents don’t rattle and shake when the winds pick up. Compare this to a floppy dome tent or pop up tent that rattles all night in the wind.
Stronger – Much stronger structure in cross winds, holding their shape firm and stable.
Durable – Hands down will last up to 10 years longer in the Australian sun than most other dome tents. Put up a cheap dome tent in the sun for 1 month and watch what happens to the materials (will fade and break down).
Darker – Don’t buy a light and bright coloured tent because at 6am when the sun is up, so are you as the tent will be a bright glow. These tents deliberately let in less light in the early morning hours allowing you to enjoy more peaceful sleep.
Water resistant – Highly water resistant materials and treatments are used so these tents perform in the harshest conditions.
Strong rip stop UV resistant shadecloth netting used on the windows and doors. All other tents use nylon or polyester no seeum mesh that tears easily and breaks down in the sun.
Super Heavy Duty 550g waterproof PVC bucket floor. Simply nothing more heavy duty that this.
Never buy another tent again. Built to last.

“I was down the coast last week in the 3m (Campmor Bow) version 225 tall, in 100k m hour winds and over 200mm of rain, tent was great” David Sullivan
“I am impressed with the quality of the tents in materials used and construction. We have had gusty strong winds throughout the month as well as fires and the tents stand strong. In the exploration and resources industry it is imperative that our equipment can withstand extremely harsh conditions and I have full confidence that your Campmor tents will be with us for many seasons to come”. Chris Wilson, Sheffield Resources.
“The (Safari Bow double) extension tent is up permanently now and people love it. Because of more usage the Bow Tents are left up in between camps and they are perfect. Thanks so much for your commitment to servicing our needs.”
Phil, Camp Eagle Mountain Retreat
