Did you know?

Hayward's is the only company in the world capable of running grand safaris for up to 240 guests in Big 5 game reserves.

If you’re seeking to create a nurturing environment where you can get the best out of your top executives, while giving them an experience they’ll never forget, then Hayward’s Grand Safari Events & Expeditions (Hayward’s) is the company to consider.

Hayward’s provides an innovative and fun alternative for group and corporate getaways of up to 200 delegates. It specialises in fully inclusive, luxury tented events in extremely private wildlife areas.

This ‘go anywhere’ mobile safari hotel is ideal for award-winning product launches, special interest tourism partners, VIP incentive groups, high level conferences, and impactful corporate social responsibility programmes.

Hayward’s has outfitted special safari events for the likes of Miss World, and the Nelson Mandela Centre of Reconciliation. It has also provided ‘out-of-the-box’ safari camps for global brands such as Richemont, BMW, SAB, General Motors, SAA and Unilever.

Its executive revitalisation packages are fertile breeding grounds for new ideas, strategic planning sessions, and new life experiences and possibilities. Envisage a team building safari with extraordinary accommodation and life-changing adventure. It’s the perfect location to reaffirm group commitment to leadership, productivity and diversity.

Hayward’s product offering includes sustainable safaris. This is a special team building adventure that sees your group move into the heart of a rural village and build a structure that can be used as the community sees fit – perhaps as a school, a clinic or a library. Once your team has left, Hayward’s management team steps in to complete the structure and ensure the project becomes sustainable.

In other team building activities, your teams may find themselves running through rural villages gathering ingredients for a cook out, or negotiating an obstacle course. It's all about formulating a team building programme that will best achieve company goals.

As part of a Hayward’s event, guests get to tour the area where the event is being held. They can enjoy activities such as game drives, hot air ballooning, horse trails, guided game walks, shopping in rural villages, and learning local arts and crafts.

And just a word on accommodation – you may think that because this is a mobile tented event, the accommodation would be sub-standard. Think again. There are en suite bedrooms with toilets and hot water showers, luggage racks, and your own personal valet to bring you coffee in the morning and polish your shoes.
