Hannibal Vehicle Roof Tents

The concept of roof tents was pioneered in South Africa and the country has long been the market leader in design and production of tough, quality roof tents.  The safety factor and advantage as a lookout position have made roof tents the most sought after, of safari tents.

The ability to test the Hannibal roof tent in the field, over rough terrain and in all-weather African conditions, has enabled us to produce a roof tent of strength and reliability.
