Just to let you know that I collected my mattresses from the post office yesterday.I slept on mine, on the floor, last night! What a comfortable mattress.
Thank you so much for your brilliant service and awesome product
- Laura Buckley (April 2014)  

I just wanted to say thank a million for the Carma quip mattress. It was awesome. I spent much less time on it but was sneaky, so when the wife went to the loo in the early morning I woul roll over and catch my last few snoozes in it. I love camping but even I get tired of poor sleeping while away, with the Carma quip we'll be spending more 'well rested' time out in the bush or wherever the wind blows us next - Rafiq van Greuning (May 2014)

Wou julle net laat weet dat ons terug is uit Namibia. Ons het n absolute fantastiese trip gehad, en wat dit baie meer gemaklik gemaak het, was julle matrasse!!! Dit is n fantastiese produk, soveel so dat my vrou my gese het(wou dit in elk geval gedoen het) om vir julle dankie te se dat ons so gemaklik kon slaap. Ek sal dit definitief aan enige iemand aanbeveel!!! Jou aanbeveling vir die fitted sheet vir die 2 matrasse was ook spot on, soos n bom gewerk...:)) - Francois Neethling (July 2014)

Wil net dankie se, ons het die matrasse die naweek gebruik en het rustig geslaap - Stephan Colyn (April 2014)

Thanks so much yet again for the fine service rendered by you.
On our return will let you know how we got along with this invaluable piece of camping equipment - Margie Afonso (July 2014)

Just wanted to let you know how it went on my recent trip to the Kgalagadi
Transfronteir Park, where I used two of your Carma Quip mattresses
in my Conquerer trailer rooftop tent. I want to say they are extremely comfortable,
and would highly recommend them. We slept on them foe 11 nights and
every night was a pleasure. I look forward to years and years
of comfortable camping nights, thanks - David Miles (November 2014)

I must report back regarding my investment, I slept like a baby, I luv my mattress - Jackie Kaizer (March 2015)

Ons het Sondag teruggekom vanaf Botswana en ek wil net baie dankie s ė vir 15 aande se heerlike slaap op ons nuwe matrasse. Die beste wat ek nog ooit in ons tent geslaap het en dit te danke aan die Carma Quip matrasse. Dankie dat jy ons so vinnig kon help toe ons in die nood was hierdie matrasse van julle is ´ n wenner
- Anita Fourie (August 2014)

Ek wil net vir julle laat weet dat jul matrasse n TREFFER is. Ons het so lekker geslaap tydens ons Botswanatoer. Nie een nag koud gekry nie. Die matrasse sal nou vir elke kamp uitstappie ingepak word!
- Tienie en Sylvia v d Merwe (July 2015)

What a surprise awaited me when I went to collect my mail this morning.Our mattresses had arrived.This is service to be proud of.I have already tested it on the living room floor and must confess, I am impressed,can't wait to test them on a camping trip.The packing and appearance of the equipment is testament of professionalism and craftmanship - Koos de Wet (May 2012)

Some reviews from our clients:

Dankie vir n baie goeie produk! Ons het toe paasnaweek gaan kamp in die karoo en ek het soos n koningin geslaap. Ek het geglo ek l ê  op n sealy postupedic
- Elize van Graan (April 2012)

Ons was hierdie afgelope naweek by Royal Natal Nationale Park vir die Mount Aux Sources Challenge. (50km berg wedloop) Ons het ons nuwe selfopblaas matrasse saam geneem. Vir die eerste keer was ek uitgerus en reg om my alles te gee vir die wedloop. En na die wedloop kon ek nie wag om weer op julle matrasse te gaan slaap nie! Dankie vir 'n wonderlike produk, wat ek definitief gaan aanbeveel!
-Vyver de Klerk (September 2014)

Ons adverteer Carma Quip waar ons gaan na ons trip na die Kgalagadi! Eerste kamp op Twee Rivieren net 3 nagte gebly, en besluit ons gaan nie die bases gebruik vir so kort rukkie nie! Wel.....na daai 3 nagte besluit ons gaan GLAD NIE die bases gebruik nie, so lekker geslaap op ons matrasse! En net so by the way, die "lubrication" les het gewerk en die proppe is gereeld ge-"lek". Well done julle. Ons het so lekker uitgerus die 18 nagte wat ons daar was, het skoon lus gehad om weer te begin werk! - Leon en Lizette Strauss (May 2016)

We did a 4x4 trip through the Namib Dunes from Luderitz to Walvis Bay and spent 6 nights sleeping in the dunes. We bought 4 Carmaquip mattresses for the trip, and we were all very impressed. Not only are they very comfortable, but they are well insulated from the cold when sleeping on the ground and are very quick and easy to put down and fold up. Thanks for a great product - Allan Buekes (June 2016)

Ons het 2 matrasse by julle aangekoop. Dit was die beste besluit wat ek nog gemaak het - Piet Swart (June 2016)

We have ordered 4 Carma Quip mattresses in January 2016 for our Orange River Rafting Camping Canoeing trip. This was a trip where you need to take everything with you on the canoe, almost with a guarantee that you will tip over and everything will be soaked. These mattresses were really a pleasure on the trip, inflated in n minute and very comfortable for a good night's rest, light and stay dry. A MUST HAVE!!! - Maral é van Zyl (June 2016)

Die koerier het vanmiddag my bestelling afgelewer - baie dankie vir julle spoedige en effektiewe diens. Die produk lyk regtig goed - ek kan sien dat dit deur aansienlike dinkwerk, ervaring en trots voorafgegaan is. Ek sal die woord versprei hierdie kant - ek glo baie mense kan daarby baat vind. Mooi bly & groete - Jaco de Jager (June 2016)

Net 'n vinnige update - ons het toe die pakkie ontvang op die dot en het dit al klaar laas naweek 'n vinnige proeflopie gegee. Baie, baie nice en die kwaliteit is uitstekend! Baie dankie vir die goeie diens, waardeer dit opreg! - Leon Gerber (July 2016)

The mattresses are truly amazing. Not only are they easy to pack and transport, sleeping on them is like sleeping in a normal bed. I am very impressed as is the rest of the team using them - World Marine Foundation (November 2016)

Baie, baie dankie vir julle voortreflike diens. Ek is spyt dat ek DIT NIE AL LANKAL GEDOEN HET NIE. Ek is deesdae al skoon paranois oor kwaliteit produkte en kwaliteit diens, want dit raak al skaarser in hierdie land van ons. Ek is seker maar nog ouskool, maar ek sien so baie produkte wat goed gewerk het en dan met nuwes vervang word wat net nie meer die kwaliteit van die oues is nie. En mense wat nie meer trots is op hulle handewerk nie. Maar julle is defenitief die uitsondering. Daarom was dit een groot plesier toe ek julle matrassies gister oopmaak en die absolute kwaliteit en duursaamheid sien. Julle matrassies is verseker 'n wenner. Daar is maar net nie 'n plaasvervanger vir praktiese ondervinding nie en ek kan dit duidelik sien in die ontwerp van julle matrassies. Ek het dadelik een van julle matrassies getoets en my heupbeen l ê hom nie deur nie. Die mates is ook perfek. Ek gaan virseker Saterdagaand 'n matrassie inwy met 'n kamp - Lourens Goosen (December 2016)

Biker - On our tour to Vic falls, we had 14 day's camping. Before leaving, you made special effort to have the new mattress ready, before launch! Despite short notice, no effort was too much! Thanks!!! My riding partner bought a mattress from a well-known supplier, but when he saw my Carma mattress, immediately returned his. The comfort is the best I ever had, and roll up and secure in the sleeve, all very easy. Even after such a long camping holiday, I never experienced sore hips or discomfort. Yes, a proper bed here and there was nice, but few and far between. I can strongly recommend this product for all campers, and if you use it on a stretcher, there could be no need for anything else..!! The only problems we had, was that a BMW GS just can't handle sand. Happy riding and enjoy your camping! - Louis Knipe (June 2016)

Net sommer ' n kort dankie se die metrasse slaap soos ' n droom, sopas terug van toer deur Oos en Suid kaap. Slaap soos by die huis - Heinrich Lategan (January 2017)

Ons het Beaverlac omtrent geniet en nog meer ons nag rus. Ek was absoluut verstom om te sien hoe gemaklik ons geslaap het, en vars opgestaan het die volgende oggend. Dit was werklik die geld werd, en ek wil net nogmaals dankie se, well done en hou so vol met jul puik produk en uitstekende bou qualiteit van die Matras
- Oswald Walters (February 2017)

We have just received the mattresses and I am very impressed with the quality. Your service and friendliness made it a pleasure to do business with Carma Quip. Thank you - Roy Kallaway (February 2017)

Your mattresses are fabulous! We slept really well :) I showed most of the campsite our new mattresses and so I hope you get some new business out of us. We are really happy customers. Thanks for the great service and product - Kerryn Gray (April 2017)

Ek moet vir jou en jou span dankie se vir julle puik diens. Dit is min dat mens dit deesdae kry en dit was 'n plesier om met julle besigheid te doen. Ek sal julle beslis ons pelle, familie, ens aanraai om in die toekoms by julle te koop - Lourens Anderson (April 2017)

Ons het laas week ons twee matrasse by AfrikaBurn gebruik. Hulle werk fantasties! Ons het hulle meeste aande bo-op stretchers gebruik maar selfs twee aande op die sand buite in die veld en dit slaap baie lekker. Baie dankie vir 'n great produk - Chris Basson (May 2017)

I would like to express my utmost appreciation for assisting me on short notices with your mattresses. I must admit I was a little sceptical when I collected them. Any concerns I had on whether your product would perform as proclaimed by so many was quickly removed after our first night trying them out. My wife and I awoke well rested after our first night on them. Unlike the slightly aching feeling we had using our rooftop tent there was none of that.
Having tried so many variances of blow up mattresses this by far out performs any of them. Thanks for a great product - Julian Robertson (May 2017)

I purchased 3 of your mattresses recently. My complaint is that in the mornings I couldn't get my wife and daughter awake for the early game drives in the Kgalagadi. They really enjoyed the mattresses after our previous ones. We also slept very warm without the need for hot water bottles or electric blanket. Thank you for this great product - Jacques Hickley (July 2017)

Wil net vir jou terugvoering gee oor ons 17 dae toer deur Botswana en Namibia en die nuwe matrasse wat ons van julle bekom het. BESTE BELEGGING OOIT!!! MY MAN HET NOOIT EERS RUGPYN GEKRY NIE (EN HY SUKKEL DAARMEE BY DIE HUIS). Hy het al genoem dat ons miskien elke dag op die matrasse moet slaap. Ons slegste slaap was toe ons in oorslaapakkommodasie tuisgegaan het (met hulle beddens en matrasse). Baie dankie vir die geleentheid om julle produk te kon koop. Dit is wonderlik en ons sal dit met hoë lof kan aanbeveel
- Ilze Couvaras (July 2017)

Ek het baie lekker op die basis en jul lekker matras geslaap. Ek is in my noppies dat die basis so klein opvou en maklik hanteerbaar en lig is. Dit pas my lewens styl perfek - Laurika Steenkamp (August 2017)

Hello to the Carma Quip team. We are just back from a weekend camp near the Outeniqua Mountains outside Mossel Bay. The absolute comfort of our Carma Quip mattresses was once again the highlight of a chilly Friday night and a much more bearable night on Saturday. Thanks team for a most satisfactory product
- Koos & Riëtta de Wet (September 2017)

Ek moet laat weet dat die matrasse fantasties is! Ek en my pa het sopas die Tankwa Camino gestap en selfs op daardie klipharde,dorre aarde waar die leiklip oral lê, was elke nag 'n gemaklike nag. En nog beter was dat ons niets matrasse hoef te pompe nie en ook nie bekommerd wees oor dorings nie. Dit was 'n fees om die matrasse te gebruik en het elke nag se slaap en oggend se oppak maklik gemaak. Geluk en dankie vir 'n briljante produk!
- Theanette Staal (September 2017)

Baie baie dankie vir julle heerlike matrasse! Wat 'n plesier. Ek het almal op die Tankwa laat lê op ons matrasse.
Dit was 'n gunsteling onder almal. Ek glo julle sal 'n bestelling of 2 kry na ons stappery. Ek kan met 'n geruste hart sê dat my pikante man met sy 136kg nie een oggend gekla het oor seer heupe nie. Baie dankie vir n puik produk

Mattress received in good order, thank you. It is unrolled and getting into a flat shape. Now I just need to get out there and do some camping! Great courier service, and the tracking was first class! I will definitely recommend your product and service. Take care and keep well - Charlene Jackson (October 2017)

Dit was regtig 'n aangename ondervinding vandag en ek wil vir julle dankie se dat julle op 'n proffesionele wyse my gehelp het met die kies van die matrasse. Die wereld sal 'n baie beter plek wees as almal net die bietjie ekstra moeite wil doen soos julle. Dankie daarvoor!! - Drikus Hanekom (November 2017)

Ek het van Carma Quip gelees op die 4x4 Community forum waar julle produk hoogs aanbeveel word deur alle gesoute kampeerders. Ek moet sê, nadat ek gisteraand een van die matrasse oopgemaak en getoets het by die huis, is ek ongelooflik beindruk deur die vakmanskap van beide die matras en die bêresak. Die matras lê ongelooflik lekker en ek glo dat dit een van die beste stukkies kamptoerusting is waarin ek nog ooit belê het
- Christo Tosen (November 2017)

Vanoggend was ek vroeg op julle site en toe weet ek die matrasse gaan nog erfgoed word. Vreeslik dankie vir julle vriendelikheid, eerlikheid, advies en sommer die wonderlike mense wat julle is - Sonet Hurter (December 2017)

Dankie vir die wonderlike matrasse, vir die eerste keer het my kinders nie gekla oor sleg slaap op vakansie nie!

I purchased 2 medium mattresses from you in October just before I departed on a two week camping trip to several reserves. I have just returned from another two week trip. I bought the mattresses to place on the stretchers we had thereby enhancing the comfort. Well they were so comfortable on their own that we ditched the stretchers and have since then had the most enjoyable uninterrupted nights awaking refreshed with no stiff backs, which for a 75 year old says a great deal!! In addition they save us time packing and unpacking camp and there is more space in the tent. We are your best ambassadors, promoting your mattresses wherever we go. Thanks for a great product - Nick Harris (January 2018)

We are really chuffed with our mattresses and have recommended them to a few friends already! We experienced no bones poking into the ground while sleeping in our tent as the mattresses were so comfy. Thanks again and we wish your business all the best of luck - Chloe, Greg and Nicholas Hopkins (March 2018)
 
Julle besigheid is uitsonderlik. Die passie baie sigbaar. Trots op elke stuk wat by julle hek uitgaan. Ek weet ek het JARE se gemoedsrus gekoop. Ek waardeer julle. Jule produk en die conviction. Weereens baie dankie. Mag julle prosper - Reon Coetzee (March 2018)

I must congratulate you on an excellent product, i will definitely recommend you to anyone who needs a camping mattress - Clift Frewen
(March 2018)

I'm back and smiling!! Mattress was awesome - so great how evenly it supported my body and never felt any ground or bumps below me - Judith Herbig (March 2018)
 
Just wanted to send a quick note to say thanks for the great service and excellent product. The mattresses were as comfortable as all the reviews and I'll get 2 more once we've got the funds. Thanks for all your help
- Byrone Thorne (April 2018)

Just a bit of feedback, we definitely had no problem sleeping on the mattresses. At first my husband was a bit worried about how firm they felt (he is used to a softer bed) but after 3 night's sleep on them we definitely had no aching bodies and felt refreshed every morning. They are really well designed for camping, compact, lightweight, durable, and an affordable option when compared to similar products. Well done, it's an excellent product and one that I would definitely recommend. Keep up the good work - Yolandi du Plessis (May 2018)


We've received the following link from Michael McNamara in the UK (June 2018)

About Michael McNamara:
I've been working in broadcasting for over 35 years, as a film/video cameraman, editor, director and vision engineer, both in the UK and South Africa. Originally I trained as a photographer, and I'm also qualified as a South African tourist guide (2010). I've guided many trips for clients over the years, and I decided to produce a series of programmes highlighting the best the country has to offer. This has expanded into a magazine style series called Woza Africa, (meaning; come to Africa in Zulu), showing outstanding places to visit, historical events, food and culture. I'll be including the basics of wildlife photography, filmmaking and adventure kit testing. Being passionate about wildlife I'll include items on conservation, especially the extensive problem of poaching throughout the subcontinent.
