The Expedition Folding Tables were developed by the African Touch as a strong, stable version of the classic folding camp table traditionally used on African safaris. The table folds neatly and is quick and simple to set up. It is constructed from ultra-tough Zambezi Teak (formerly known as Rhodesian Teak) or old growth plantation hardwood sourced in the Eastern Highlands of Zimbabwe. Coming in different sizes it is ideal as a side table, dining table or work table in the home, office or on expedition. A canvas carry bag is an optional extra. It is an excellent addition to our Safari Director’s Chair or Roorkhee chair.
The Expedition Folding Tables were developed by the African Touch 20 years ago and have proven to be one of our most successful products. They are a strong, stable version of the classic safari table traditionally used on African safaris and in Safari Camps and Lodges as a side table or a boma table for taking meals in the bush. The safari table folds neatly and is quick and simple to set up. The turned carry handle is comfortable in the hand. The top and legs are accurately handcrafted to give the whole structure rigidity.
This solid wood folding table is constructed from ultra-tough Zambezi Teak (formerly known as Rhodesian Teak) or old growth plantation hardwood sourced in the Eastern Highlands of Zimbabwe. The strength of these timbers combined with excellent construction ensures a long lasting as well as very attractive product. The slats making up the top are both screwed and glued onto the rails to make sure they do not come loose, even after years of use.

Your oiled Expedition Folding Table receives three applications of Satinwood 28 Base oil prior to delivery. Our outlets carry stock, or you can find it in most hardware shops in South Africa. We recommend you do one application on installation of the furniture. From time to time you will need to re-apply the oil. If the furniture is used outdoors, please do the re-application every 3 months. When in doubt, re-apply when the finish looks faded or dry. The recommended application procedure is as follows:
- Wipe surface down with a clean cotton cloth lightly moistened with mineral turpentine. (Ensure that all surfaces are completely dry and clean before proceeding with the next step)
- Use a clean cotton cloth or soft bristled brush dipped in the oil and apply in light, short strokes, ensuring thorough and even distribution of the oil.
- Leave the oil on the furniture for at least 1 to 2 hours (but not more than 24 hours), to allow absorption into the wood.
- Use a clean cotton cloth and wipe off all excess liquid to leave a natural smooth finish.
- Allow to dry for approximately 24 hours.
If the surface of your furniture becomes a bit grimy over time it can be very effectively cleaned with Deckwash from Timberlife. Apply with a clean cloth. Work in well over the total surface and wipe off all excess liquid.
If a wet glass or similar is left on the surface it may leave a watermark. In this case please wipe the water off as soon as possible, and if necessary apply some more Satinwood 28 base. If the mark is still slightly visible you can rub with a little baking soda mixed with an equal part of water, wipe off with a damp cloth and re-apply the oil.

We offer a warrantee on Expedition Tables for defects in material and workmanship for one year from the date of purchase.
We build with timber harvested from natural forests. The charm of this material is that no two pieces are exactly the same in colour, character or grain, and they will contain natural imperfections such as knots, stress cracks and so on that enhance their authenticity and attractiveness. As a result, no 2 pieces will ever be identical and products may have natural imperfections. However, these will never be allowed to compromise the quality of construction of your piece.
The African Touch will not in any circumstances be liable for any claim which falls outside the scope of our warranty or for any consequential damages whatsoever.
