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
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 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.
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.
