Self-Catered or Fully Catered Safari Experience +27 83 600 4453

A white board is a white board and a chair at a conference or presentation is just a forgotten chair unless you place it in an extraordinary environment that sparks the imagination.

Then, the moment returns to you as a present encounter in time, one that reminds you of an exceptional experience delivered to you again and again in a full colour menu of memories, experiences, knowledge, sights, smells and sound.

Looking for ‘out of the ordinary’? Do you need to make a world of difference to your next event? Are you tired of the usual luxury event venues available around town?

Escape to the edge of the city and enter a pristine natural environment of Hayward’s Safari Sanctuary which brings 5-star quality and creative events within one easy hour chauffeur drive from Johannesburg, Pretoria and OR Tambo International Airport for your next exclusive corporate or family group event.

Catering to private groups of up to 200 people, Hayward’s offers a Big 5 adventure venue for conferencing, presentations, meetings, wedding and exclusive luxury celebrations. Before you have left the city behind in your review mirror, you are totally immersed in a private and pristine nature reserve where you won’t spot another person except for your butler, safari ranger and your hosts Adventure Extraordinaire Peter Hayward and his dynamic Production Director Celia du Preez and the world-class service team… and of course a plethora of bird life, mammals and predators submerged in their own natural cycle of life.

Brand managers for Landrover, Toyota and Ferrari have celebrated audio visual themed production launches at Haywards, while celebrity TV show hosts and Hollywood music icons have been hosted for landmark celebratory events. Many international and South African blue chip CEOs have chosen a unique bushveld meetings experience combined with the service excellence of Hayward’s 24-hour safari team.

Special Events in Unique Environments

Says Owner and Adventure Extraordinaire Peter Hayward, “Each and every event we host is personalised and custom created for the group. For a 60th birthday celebration, we staged Dire Straits who flew in by special request to play for the birthday party.

“We ordered in boxes of Grey Goose vodka for the US’ top TV show hostess on a safari weekend, which featured some of America’s top names in the music industry.

“For a retiring Chairman of the Board, we custom planned each 8-course menu down to the last wine, whiskey and cigar pairing.

“For a corporate executive committee, we combined conferencing during the day with game-viewing and team activities and we have hosted a South African celebrity wedding which was televised for a top luxury entertainment show where the bride arrived by helicopter.

“Nothing is impossible with Haywards. We are a mobile 5-star lodge wherever you want us to be. Pick your safari destination of choice or gather at our Safari Sanctuary headquarters just north of Pretoria, and you are transported to another world and another time.

“While we offer full digital and AV connectivity in the most remote natural environments in Africa, if you don’t want to be found, you won’t be, as privacy for each individual group rests at our core.

“We guarantee you service which is both world-class and intimate. You may walk barefoot on the earth or on our Persian carpets; relax in our spa and sleep on Egyptian cotton sheets with the stars in a canopy of sky above you.”

Superior Event Production

Whether you want a superior event production, a dedicated and focused private celebration or an intimate corporate meeting, product launch or incentive event close to home – but far away from any other experience you’ve ever had – Hayward’s will delivery it in 5-star event style.

Brand marketers, event and conference organisers, personal assistants and strategic corporate facilitators interested in exploring and recreating memorable brand launches and corporate conferences are invited to experience just some of the tastes, sights, smells and ambience of an opulent, authentic African safari camp at Hayward’s Grand Safari Company’s headquarters, located in Gauteng’s Dinokeng Big 5 Game Reserve, situated just 40 minutes north of Pretoria.
