The African Touch Safari Director’s Chair is a version of the classic folding camp chair traditionally used on African safaris. We have designed this folding chair with an extra wide self-tightening seat and broad armrest for added comfort.
Safari Directors chairs fold for convenient storage, and have a wide range of uses. Their superb comfort make them ideal for long evenings spent round the dining table with friends, as a desk chair or a casual chair on the veranda or around the camp fire. They are popular on boats, in restaurants and bush camps!
After years of use, the canvas covers can become worn and possibly torn. Our covers are a standard size so replacement covers can easily be ordered from the factory or agent.
A canvas cover is also available to protect your chairs.
Our Drinks Tray is a great addition to the Safari Director’s Chair. The tray simply clips onto the side of the chair and you pop your glass of good stuff onto it. Alternatively, the beautifully constructed African Touch Folding table can be used as a side table (the 500 x 500 version) or a small bush dining table (the 650 x 500 version). These tables fold away very conveniently when not in use.

We cannot offer a warrantee on chairs except for defects in material and workmanship that affect the integrity of the chair under normal use and weight limits. The reason for this is that chairs can be subject to huge stresses (such as when a heavy person rocks back on the back legs) that are impossible to compensate for in the construction of the chair without compromising on the design appeal.
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.
