    Hi Piglet, long time no chat, Not sure if they are available locally, but the Hennessy hammock is considered one of the best. Take a look at its features to get an idea of what you want. They innovated a diagonal sleeping system to help with the banana back ache

    Hope all is going well,exactly what you saying it's difficult to find something locally.
    Lots of plain hammocks just nothing with the tent option

    Has anyone tried these things? I see the hennesy uses a diagonal lay design which apparently makes it more comfortable but I can't find them in sa, the nature hike venus looks similar but I haven't tried one yet

    Maybe something like the haven hammock tents,but it probably cost an arm and leg.

    Looks like I will have to look at the tarp and mosquito net hammocks.
    Or just farm style self cut tarpaulin and a hammock

    If you know someone handy with a sewing machine it shouldn't be hard for them to put a mosquito net and a zip onto one of the parachute material type hammocks, then just throw a rain fly over it
