Pilanesberg National ParkSouth Africa
In 2000 we were the first safari company to acquire Parks Board permission to set up our grand safari tented camp in the wilderness walking area of Pilanesberg, named after old Chief Pilane who ruled over this region historically.
Since then we have run a string of incredible grand safaris there for leading international companies and even some of the world’s top celebrities. Our presence resulted in huge donations made to the park and communities surrounding this park over the past 15 years.
The area we set up camp in is off limits to the public and has provided great interaction with rhino, elephant and lion.
By its mere location which is just under a two hour drive from Johannesburg, the Pilanesberg is a favorite for many wishing to see this magnificent ancient volcanic reserve filled with beautiful vistas and a great opportunity to see loads of wildlife in a short space of time. The Pilanesberg is renowned for its vast herds of elephant, big lion prides, cheetah, wild dog, hyena and leopard sightings.
This magnificent MALARIA FREE 65’000 hectare reserve boasts incredible sightings of the largest, the fastest and some of the most endangered species on earth.
A Hayward’s Grand Safari Camp experience offers guided walks and game drives amongst the herds, and from time to time highly privileged game capture projects and animal relocation with researchers.
Adventurous pastimes such as archery, clay pigeon shooting, falconry, quad biking, hot air ballooning and horseback safari are all accessible from camp.
A combination with Sun International’s The Palace of the Lost City make this a definite consideration for big groups where those wishing to enjoy a host of resort activities are easily accessible.
Ideally our 5 Star safari camp in Pilanesberg National Park is minimally a three to five night safari affair.
