Welcome to Unexplored Africa

We Have a Safari Lodge, Where Would YOU Like It?

Haywards Luxury Executive Safaris


I started designing the Hayward’s Grand Safari Company concept way back in 1993 to specifically provide VIP private groups of 40 (min) to 200 (max) guests with an authentic luxury mobile tented safari camp alternative, that would offer illustrious groups for the first time, access into unexplored Southern African safari territory where no other southern Africa hotel accommodation was available or could handle their group size.

By design, this safari camp experience ensures you and your guests get total event exclusivity and superior guest comfort, in hand crafted and custom designed tented safari camps that are expedition styled in nature, yet first class in comfort and service. Way beyond “glamping”!

Expressly, Hayward’s is not a typical hotel handling off the street tourists or an array of groups all at once but rather a wilderness camp experience that provides a sanctuary for the soul where each camp location is meticulously thought through and evaluated before construction.

Our track record and safari methodology over the many years has ensured incredible guest feedback and letters of commendation from our clients.

Each 5-star rated classic safari camp I design, build and manage with my team is set up for you exactly the way you require it and represents a truly bespoke, once-off, eco-friendly venue offering your safari guests the ultimate in an authentic private luxury safari camp experience – something they themselves cannot access and nothing quite like it on the entire continent of Africa.

As a safari camp outfitter, I have been appointed by many leading multinational blue chip companies to set up camp for their VIP events and have also been of grand safari service to an array of celebrities, royalty, business tycoons and celebrity brides for their absolutely private Out of Africa functions. My team and I have provided our tented camp services for many award-winning launches, internationally acclaimed events and corporate gala evenings.

Hayward’s Grand Safari Company is a unique Southern African safari tour and hotel alternative for VIP groups that demand the extraordinary when it comes to their African safari event and expeditions to experience the richness of our wildlife, indigenous tribes and wilderness regions throughout the hinterlands of South Africa, Zimbabwe, Namibia and Zambia’s top reserves.

Suddenly, southern Africa has many options for your next group. Why not get some ideas from my team and I for your next unique African based event?

I look forward to hearing from you about your dreams and aspirations of doing a Grand Safari soon.
