Grande Safari Dinner Events


[Back to press releases]


Grand Safari Dinners of yesteryear are alive and well - right here on the outskirts of Johannesburg!

The illustrious Hayward's Luxury Safari Event Venue will once again be setting up during November in the CRADLE OF HUMANKIND, a mere forty minutes from Sandton.

An ideal venue for staging elaborate, end-of-year private functions, Hayward's offers companies a truly unique alternative to typical restaurants and hotel dining halls.

Hayward's is offered as a fully themed experience. Guests can arrive from after 3 pm, when the afternoon heat has dissipated, and enjoy an elaborate game drive through a private reserve, stopping at a live archaeological digging site before entering the luxurious confines of the safari camp.

As the sun sets, guests can watch as kudu merge into the patchwork of shadows and crevices under the deepening shade of acacias, whilst participating in sundowners and exotic pre-dinner cocktails.

Our infamous attendants, robed in flowing white ‘kurtas’ crossed from the shoulder with red sashes, will meet your guests with trays of chilled refreshments. Butlers, in standard khaki safari gear and pith helmets, will escort you to and from your vehicles.

You will know that you have been warmly invited to Hayward’s Luxury Safaris for dinner.

As the sun sets, the dinner gong will sound as you are enticed inside the infamous One & Only Hayward's Gin Tent for an extravagant five-course dinner.

We have various mouthwatering recipes that will astound your taste buds, whilst gentle music prepares you for the next course.

We access top musicians or revue artists, complete with staging and lighting, to ensure your dinner celebrates more than just the end of another year.

You will sense it all. You will sense it in the breeze and the silence - the primitive, mysterious allure of an African campsite; a ‘sacred’ place, isolated from the intrusions of shrink-wrapped, conveyor belt type venues typically on offer.

This, you feel, is different. Old Hollywood, in its brash, extravagant heyday, would have set up a camp like this for Katherine Hepburn on location in East Africa.

This is unique. This is special.

Our luxury safari camp has to be one of the last great African safari experiences left on this planet.

“We invite companies wishing to celebrate their 2004 achievements in style to consider a Hayward's function to set the level of excellence needed for a bright new 2005."
