African Eclipse Safari Camp

 Hayward's African Eclipse Safari 2002 - For a once-in 375-years
occasion!

[Back to press releases]

 
 

This rare experience awaits you in a vast private nature reserve (Big 4) in the Northern Province of South Africa, where luxury safari outfitter, Peter Hayward, will create a safari of supreme proportions for only one select group!

THE CAMP SITE 
A Thousand-year-old baobab tree of huge girth stands sentinel over the wild bush country of the Limpopo River Valley in the extreme north-east of South Africa. Around this giant, under a canopy of marula trees a very special safari site has been earmarked for this extraordinary occasion .

THE ECLIPSE
Early in the morning on 4 December 2002, the shadow of the moon, racing across the valley at seventeen hundred kilometres an hour, will engulf the Place of the Great Baobab.

In an instant day will turn to eerie night, softened by the ethereal glow of the solar corona radiating in pearly splendour around the black outline of the moon. It is a sublime moment, imprinting itself on the heart of those who are fortunate enough to stand in awe before it.

THE REFINEMENT 
The world renowned Hayward's Safari Camp, complete to the smallest detail with its lavish appointments and service trimmings of a bygone era, will be set up in this outstanding location to await the second total solar eclipse of the millennium. 

THE SAFARI CAMP 
Being a guest at Hayward's is to experience safari life on the grand scale, as it is for the worlds most illustrious executives and opinion leaders who annually answer the call of Africa! Hayward's is the worlds biggest most luxurious classical safari of yesteryear on offer - opulent, elegant, exclusive; a privileged and pampered world of comfort, superb service and fine food.

THE INCREDIBLE PROGRAM 
A highly individualistic three-day programme has been devised to afford guests the best possible eclipse viewing, to give them a personal  introduction to the land and its people and wildlife, and to send them home informed, inspired and enriched by their African adventure.

THE REGION 
This is big game country. Wildlife includes elephant, buffalo, leopard and rhino and a wide range of antelope. The reserve is the site of important recent findings of fascinating San (bushman) rock-art, reckoned to be thousands of years old. As early as 200 AD, Bantu-speaking farmers moved across the Limpopo River and settled in this region, displacing the San hunter-gatherers. Artifacts from their villages and trading posts can still be uncovered today, only a kilometre from the Hayward's safari site.
