I suggest that you contact some of the outfitters in Africa who run those kind of trips and ask them. I assume many of them have websites. Otherwise,Coleman and Eureka make big "family style" tents. Stay away from anything available from Wal-Mart, K-Mart or similar stores. The tents they sell almost all come from the same manufacturers in China and are poorly made.

Cabela's sells a variety of "outfitter" tents, though most of them are for the "North Woods" and Alaska rather than the veldt. If you pick and choose among them, though, I think you can find what you want. In addition to Eureka and a couple other brands, they have their own label (unlike the big box store labels, Cabela does sell good quality gear under their own name and stands behind their gear). Warning - like any quality gear, Cabela Outfitter tents are not cheap.
