Why Africa Thatch?
Our units are a unique design. Our thatch roof is made in a panel form, that is compact and tightly done with genuine thatch grass and the inside of the roof is a steel structure which makes it durable, strong and maintenance free. No combing.

Our wooden panels create a true African cosy atmosphere. We take only ONE DAY to install your complete unit.

We have years of experience, specialising in the one product that you are looking for.
  Thatch Export  
  Africa Thatch created and designed the original thatch panel. It was also the first company to manufacture, sell and export a thatch panel. The thatch panel was patented in 1986.

Africa Thatch have been specializing in thatch panels ever since. Over the years, Africa Thatch has proven to be a well known and reputable company that produces the best quality thatch products and services.

In 1998, Rustic Africa Thatch was formed under the Africa Thatch umbrella to export the Africa Thatch panel. The thatch panel was exported to countries all over the world including Spain, Portugal, the UK, the Netherlands, Greece, Singapore, Dubai and the United Arab Emirates.

In 2010 it was decided that the Rustic Africa Thatch needed to merge with its parent company, Africa Thatch. All export now falls under the Africa Thatch umbrella.
  Did you know that thatch grass has to die after it has frosted, before it should be cut, to use for thatching, that is why we stock our grass in warehouses during winter months to provide top quality thatch that we use for our units.
