Skandika Nizza Tent Review

Now I’m going to begin this review with a slight confession…. I’m a total camping newbie. My only experience of camping was when I was like 9 and we had a small 2 man tent put up in our back garden within minutes a spider crawled in and I was long gone. With that said I have to admit I was a little bit anxious about Camping at Camp Bestival 2016.

Of course I was excited about being able to attend as an Official Camp Bestival Blogger, but camping alone was something I had little experience of, let alone with 2 young kids in tow. So the question I asked myself was would I be able to find a tent that made my first ever camping experience as fantastic experience? and would I want to camp ever again after?I was very grateful to Skandika who kindly offered to send us the Skandika Nizza Tent to review. Upon first looks on there website I was instantly impressed by just how spacious it looked. You could easily first a family of 4 in there and easily have enough room to move around comfortably. The tent is 210cm high which ment we were able to stand up right inside, with was a lovely bonus.

Neither me or my partner have ever put a tent up in our lives, and it was definitely a tester on our relationship..  if you can survive putting a tent up together you can just about survive anything. The Skandika Nizza tent spite being so spacious was super easy to put up, even for us first timers. We did the silly thing of forgetting to pack the instructions, so we ended up having to wing it. In all it took about 20-30 mins in total for us to put the tent fully up.

One of my favourite things about the tent was the sleeping pod. Whilst away at Camp Bestival the weather was wonderful, however at night time the temperature did drop a fair bit. The fact the sleeping pod gave you the option of being able to either have a sleeping divider in place or not between the two rooms came in very handy. If we had wanted to have privacy ie kids in one room us in another then it was easy to put into place, however due to being cold on the nights we were away we were able to remove the divider separating the bedrooms and all snuggle up together.

In spite of the fact that it did get rather cold at night, we were very lucky in that it didn’t rain the entire time we were away… woot!! However if it had of rained we would of been well protected thanks to the tents 5000 mm water column. The tent also has a sewn in ground sheet and mosquito mesh screens on all the doors and windows which helped give us a a bit of extra warmth and protection against the wind as well as keeping the bugs out too.

Overall, we loved our first ever camping experience and especially loved our Skandika Nizza Tent Its made us get the Camping itch now and were hoping to go lots more in the future and of course our Skandika Tent will be coming too.

    I've attempted camping in the past but it's not for me, my other half lives it though and I think he'd love this tent. The separate little rooms/compartments sound really practical. Well done on getting the tent up. Laura x

    I don't like camping, however this size tent I might be able to cope with!
