August 8, 2023

When embarking on an exciting safari adventure in South Africa, one of the crucial aspects to consider is the comfort and durability of the safari vehicle’s seating arrangement. As a local South African seat manufacturer, understanding safari enthusiasts’ unique requirements and demands is second nature. Delving into the world of high-quality canvas safari seats, exploring the various material options, customisation choices, and optional extras that aim to provide the ultimate safari experience. 

High-Quality Canvas Materials 

At the local seat manufacturing facility in Midrand, South Africa, it is a priority to utilise high-quality canvas materials for the safari seats. Canvas, known for its strength, durability, and reliability, proves to be an exceptional choice for safari enthusiasts. These materials are carefully selected to withstand the harsh and unpredictable African elements while ensuring the utmost comfort during long journeys through the wilderness. 

This special treatment ensures the longevity of the seats, preventing damage caused by continuous exposure to varying weather conditions. Moreover, the thick canvas offers excellent breathability, allowing for proper air circulation, which is particularly vital during those hot and balmy days on safari.

Variety of Colours and Customisation


Understanding the diverse preferences of safari enthusiasts and offering a wide range of colours when it comes to canvas safari seats. From earthy tones that blend seamlessly with the African landscape to vibrant shades that add a pop of colour to any safari vehicle, there is something to suit every individual taste and style. Even if the preference is a more traditional look or a bold statement, the extensive colour palette ensures finding the perfect match for the safari seating.


In addition to colour variety, the local seat manufacturing facility in South Africa specialises in customising safari seats according to customer requirements. Acknowledging that each customer has unique needs and preferences, Ulrich Seats aims to meet and exceed them. From seat size and shape to pattern designs and embroidery, our expert craftsmen are committed to bringing specific personal visions to life, creating truly bespoke safari seats that reflect individuality.

Options Galore: Lowback or Highback Safari Seats

To cater to the diverse preferences of safari enthusiasts, we offer two primary options for safari seats – lowback and highback. Both variations are meticulously crafted, guaranteeing maximum comfort and support during long, bumpy rides across the African terrain. 

Lowback safari seats are designed to provide unobstructed views and a sense of openness, ideal for those who wish to immerse themselves completely in the safari experience. These seats boast a minimalist design without compromising on comfort. The reclining or fixed frame options offer additional flexibility to suit individual seating preferences. 

On the other hand, highback safari seats offer superior back and neck support, ensuring a comfortable journey for those seeking extra relaxation during their safari adventure. These seats are particularly well-suited for individuals who prioritize comfort and prefer a higher level of backrest.

Optional Extras for Enhanced Safari Experience 

To further elevate the safari experience, we provide a range of optional extras that can be added to your safari seats. These extras have been carefully designed to ensure convenience, accessibility, and practicality throughout your journey. 

  1. Grab Handles: Strategically placed grab handles provide additional stability and support when traversing uneven terrain, offering safety and peace of mind. 
  1. Cup Holders: Perfectly positioned cup holders that allow guests to enjoy their favourite beverage during the safari without worrying about spills or clutter.

  1. Embroidery: Customisation is a popular added extra for unique Safari Seats. Adding a company logo to the Safari Seats according to specific Corporate Identities (CI’s). Through the use of embroidery, personalisation of the seats with logos, names, or any design of choice. This adds a unique touch to the seating arrangement, allowing for individuality and style.
