Africa encompasses great wilderness and conservation landscapes that bypass African borders and allow wildlife to migrate and move freely between South Africa, Botswana, Zimbabwe, Mozambique, Swaziland and Lesotho. These wild landscapes are also referred to as the Peace Parks:
Adventure Extraordinaire Peter Hayward advises: “Uniquely, Hayward’s can offer our clients the privilege of entertaining their guests in wilderness regions never safaried before – and better still in areas and locations where there are no other hotel options – making it a truly rare and privileged occasion for all participants.
“The camp locations are exquisite and remote, and often Hayward’s Grand Safari camps are the very first grand safari camp activity the region has seen in over 100 years. With access to the Kruger National Park, we can create authentic luxury tented Safari’s for big groups of up to 200 people.”
The Parks comprise both Transfrontier Park and Conservation Areas:
