Welcome To Unexplored Africa
Hayward’s Grand Safari Company provides VIP 5 Star private groups of 40 to 200 guests with an authentic luxury mobile tented safari camp.
Hayward Safaris Camps are set up in unexplored southern African safari territory where no other southern Africa hotel accommodation is available or can handle the group size. Our camps guarantee 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”! Hayward’s is a wilderness camp experience that provides a sanctuary for the soul where each camp location is meticulously designed before construction.
Each 5-star rated classic safari camp is set up for you exactly the way you require it and represents a truly bespoke, once-off, eco-friendly venue – Hayward’s is not open to the public.
We are 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.
Hayward’s provides award-winning launches, internationally acclaimed events and superior corporate gala evenings. 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?
Grand Safari Events & Expeditions
Peter J. W. Hayward conceptualized the Hayward’s Grand Safari Company in 1993 – a ‘world-first’ 5 Star mobile tented safari hotel. He is an active hands on owner and enjoys creating incredible safari events for his clients. Each safari event is run by an active team on a one on one basis. We have a senior management team of approximately nine staff and our crew can expand and contract by up to ninety. This means that the same team taking your brief actually delivers the product originally promised to you. As event specialists in the great African outdoors, we cater primarily to two distinct markets; Parties / Corporate Events and Incentive Groups.

- Family safari reunions and milestone birthday events.

One of my favourite pastimes is hunting down incredible camp site locations. Uniquely, Hayward’s can offer our clients the privilege of entertaining their guests in wilderness regions never safaried before – and better still in areas there are no other hotel options – making it a truly rare and privileged occasion for all participants.
Our outstanding track record ensures positive guest feedback and letters of thanks from our clients.
…what a pleasure to be made to feel so special and important. Giving top marks is usually not an easy task, but they are just so deserving! WOW! You have truly out – done yourselves!
An experience that will be hard to top. Your staff, food, accommodation is just amazing. It’s been a once in a lifetime experience. Glad I could be part of the experience. May you go from strength to strength!
…a wonderful conference and a unique experience! We had fantastic feedback from staff (even from the non-campers!) that the attention to detail was awesome and the food without exception exemplary.

Grand safari greetings, It's been some time since I put pen to paper. A strange time indeed that now seems to be becoming a new way of life!?! Are there any lessons we can take home from the world-wide situation going down? I'm sure you have a few to share too!...
Everyone in our hospitality industry has undergone huge stress in the past year. I would like to make an offer to you personally to assist in some small way with this.
