Tented Corporate Events

Hayward’s Grand Safari Events & ExpeditionsHayward Safaris is the company you need to help you plan your next corporate function or event. From planning to execution, we will help with every step of the process, ensuring that your corporate event will turn out exactly how you want.

We offer an exciting new alternative for group / corporate getaways. We offer corporations a sustainable safari that leaves behind a sustainable village – a real legacy that the company can incorporate into their social welfare programs at limited extra cost.

If one redirects the huge amount of finance companies are willing to spend on budgets to access exotic overnight destinations, and then add this budget to the money spent on prank-filled activities and no-point entertainment to spice the event up for the bored delegates, one has the makings and the budget available to kick start a remote village’s economy and still provide the participants with an authentic wildlife camp experience.

Once the corporate client has quantified their event activity budget, Peter Hayward together with a highly reputable project management team, select a region for the safari event that takes into account the client’s budget and time restraints for their planned event. A base for the Hayward’s tented camp is identified nearby the selected village for the event. Peter and his team then commence a delicate collaboration with the village/regional elders to propose a selection of vital projects that will create the
ongoing finance needed to mobilize their micro economy.

A recent client of ours put aside their activities/entertainment budget which was over a million rand to rather bring life back into the educational facilitiesof the village outside Pilanesberg. Over and above the income they generated for the game park whilst encamped with us they took time to ensure that their two hundred delegates would be getting involved in the lives of the villagers.

It’s an outstanding way to involve the delegates and utilize their vast know-how as by the time they arrive at their Hayward’s safari encamped on the outskirts of the village (normally in a game reserve or at our Safari Sanctuary in the heart of Dinokeng) the project is at a stage where their input becomes vital. It’s a flurry of activity as the teams go about completing the various projects necessary – from bricklaying to food gardens to fish farming, training centres and libraries.

Everyone comes away a winner making this the ultimate safari experience and in fact brings us full circle back to the first safaris hundreds if not thousands of years ago where the cross Africa journey by robust beast and enquiring man was about bringing trade and interaction between tribes and stimulating the economy wherever they went.
