Rooted in the legacy of Bushtec Adventure

MEERKAT is a proud member of the Canvas and Tent Group.

Originating in 1968, Canvas and Tent Manufacturing marked its journey with designing and creating the first-ever bow tent in 1972. Now, operating from our state-of-the-art factory in Ladysmith, we are a family of over 500 passionate, skilled individuals dedicated to upholding our tradition of excellence.

Our establishment is ISO 9001:2015 and ISO 14001:2015 certified, a testament to our commitment to quality and environmental sustainability. To guarantee the exceptional quality synonymous with our brand, we have set up an on-site laboratory where all materials are rigorously tested against stringent international standards.

MEERKAT, therefore, promises not just products, but a tradition of trust, a commitment to quality, and a passport to memorable experiences in the lap of nature.
