As we’ve all known that glamping tents are crucial elements for determining the quality of glamping, when embark on a glamping adventure, how can we select a suitable glamping tent for better outdoor experience? In this passage, we are going to learn about 6 types of tents used for glamping. Let’s explore the fascinating world of glamping tents, highlighting their unique characteristics, advantages, disadvantages, and upkeep tips and choosing the right one which can elevate your experience from ordinary to extraordinary.

2. Safari Tent

Safari Tent is a hallmark of classic glamping tents and it belongs to our categories of Light Luxury Tent. Usually it could accommodate 1~2 people.

  • Features:Central or both sides of brackets of Safari Tent are usually arranged in a triangular shape(greatly improve its stability). Robust frames, often constructed of wood or metal, support a heavy-duty canvas. The interior can span from basic to luxurious, typically featuring beds, furniture, and sometimes, a private bathroom.


  • Pros and Cons:Safari Tent is designed to withstand diverse weather, with windproof level 8, offering spaciousness and often luxurious amenities. However, its bulky structure and the complexity of assembly mean that it’s not suitable for spontaneous, moveable glamping setups. Also, the cost can be higher than other tent types due to its size and performance. If you have adequate budget, take it into your considerations.

3. Skyline Tent

The appearance of Skyline Tent is free and flexible, like a bird with open wings which shows a wide three-dimensional, undulating lines and dynamic contours. The spacious atmosphere under is also friendly and simple, enabling you to launch an activity accommodating 50~100 people. With simple appearance and lighting, a dreamy event background can be created. 

  • Features:The most special feature of Skyline Tent lies on its unique, free and agile What’s more, it is easy to set up, built on site from standard dimensions and prefabricated structures, each unit is modular in nature, meaning that you can build it in a fraction of the time.
  • Usually this kind of glamping tent is open all round and is  supported by Coated supports, cables and stakes. Opening a store insides or gathering up for dinner are good choice for it.


  • Pros and cons: Among other kinds of glamping tents, Skyline Tents can let guests fully immersed into nature which would leave you a deep impression. However, the transparency can mean a lack of privacy and insulation, making Skyline Tentsless ideal in colder climates or crowded camping spots. Remember to check for any punctures or tears and addressing them immediately is crucial due to the delicate nature of the materials.

4. Bell Tent

  • Features: There is usually a cone-shaped roofthat stretches out to provide outdoors shelter from the rain. The surrounding walls are usually composed of glass or wooden shutters. Also Bell Tent can support the joint establishment of several ones according to the passenger flow.


  • Pros and cons:Bell tent can meet all-weather and year-round requirements, bringing an unprecedented luxury experience for us. And it is daptable to natural conditions such as sun, wind, snow and extreme temperatures, delivering outstanding performance and aesthetics. But the central pole can be intrusive, and its canvas construction may not hold up against severe weather as sturdily as some other glamping tents.
  • To keep its maintenance, regular waterproofing is a must. Ensure the canvas is dry before packing it away to prevent mold and mildew. Checking for ground moisture and elevating the glamping tent slightly can also extend its life.

5. Light Canvas Tent

For the minimalist glamping enthusiast, the Lite Canvas Tent offers simplicity and functionality, packaged in an effortlessly portable design.

  • Features: Constructed from a lighter canvas material and designed for ease, the most distinctive difference between Lite Canvas Tent and other kinds of glamping tents is that it is easy to set up by yourselves while mucheasier to transport and set up, making it an excellent option for those who like to explore different glamping locations.


  • Pros and cons:It still offers more comfort than a typical glamping tent, though with less setup hassle. However, its lighter material might not endure extreme weather as robustly as a Safari or Bell Tent, and space can be more confined. To enhance its durability, like its heavier counterparts, keeping the canvas waterproof and clean is essential. Ensuring it’s fully dry before storing and regularly checking for tears or strains in the material will help maintain its condition.

6. Dome Tent

The Dome Tent is mainly made of PVC material, its frame structure adopts reinforced galvanized steel pipes, which can effectively resist wind of level 10 or above. With its futuristic contours and eco-friendly design, represents modernity in the glamping tent spectrum. And usually we provide Dome tent with a diameter of 6-8 meters.

  • Features:When refers to the appearance of Dome tent, hemispherical igloos at the North and South Pole often come into my mind for their both geodesic shapes for stability, these tents can withstand considerable wind and weather while providing a unique, cocoon-like feel. Sustainable materials and innovative designs are often incorporated. And if have requirements to construct a Dome tents community for resorts, we can provide experienced and professional connecting ball solution.


  • Pros and cons:Their aerodynamic shape and sturdy build make them suitable for various climates and terrains. They also offer a unique aesthetic that stands out in the natural setting. However, compared to other types, its internal space and headroom can often be less generous, and the unconventional look might not appeal to traditionalists. As for maintenance, regularly inspect the structural components (poles, joints) for stress or damage, especially after exposure to harsh weather. Keeping their transparent parts and their cover clean and UV-protected will help preserve its appearance and functionality.
