Hayward Safaris

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.

We are a very real, tried and trusted 5 star graded venue for groups who specifically want:

1. Total exclusivity for their guests
2. The option to set up in very remote places which offer a unique privilege to their guests

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?

Camp Locations

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.

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.
