The Value Of Total - TOTAL - Safari Event Exclusivity.

How does one value absolute exclusivity? Can one put a price tag on it? Is it measureable? Should a group incentive safari for VIP's, top-end performers or celebrities be held at a venue that offers total privacy to your group only or is it okay to block off a small corner of a venue and hope for "exclusive" service?

What safari dreams are made of....

The Land Rovers bump and grind over the hard, red earth of the narrow rutted track winding higher and higher over the sweeping, rugged grassland of the Kromdraai conservancy. A kudu, merged into the patchwork of shadows and crevices under the deepening shade of an Acacia stills her browsing and watches the intrusive procession.

Five Nights, Five Themes, Five Flights

Way back in the 70's, I camped in the Great Karoo desert, in the Oudsthoorn district of South Africa. I camped there for about a year, with 2000 of my buddies! Two thousand started and only 200 ended. It was my "baptism of fire" as regards canvass, heat, dust, toilets and screaming Sergeant Majors!

A whale of a Safari - A whale of a Time

Boredom is not an option! What with meeting Zulu's, chasing huge whales, fishing for marlin, horse trailing amongst the herds, guided walks with Park Rangers and kayaking with hippos and crocs, it is a big, very big, African safari experience. What's more, this safari is in a MALARIA FREE region!

Talking Safaris

As we head into the final few months of 2002, I'm sure many of us could do with a "Stop this World - I Wanna Get Off!" breakaway. It's been a mammoth  year all round. Even the animals out there seem to have felt it!

Outfitting the ultimate safari

Over 1000 VIP guests were kind enough to rate their overnight experience at Hayward's. What is particularly interesting is that not one guest arriving at our welcoming station had any idea they would have to "camp" overnight with us. The look of astonishment on their faces is a cherished memory - as many of them would never consider the safari tent option!

African Opera and the African night.
"An evening at Hayward's"

From the moment the candles of the infamous Hayward's Gin Tent are extinguished there is a hushed silence brought on by the thick mist of the West Coast as it permeates through the flickering lanterns of the camp. It's at this point that one becomes suddenly aware that something unique about this evening is about to unfold.

On Safari with Hayward's - BMW appoint Hayward's for West Coast National Park...
"In search of man's first Footsteps"

117'000 years ago a woman strolled down from the coastal dunes towards the edge of the great inland lagoon known today as Langebaan... She crossed the trail of some wild antelope and walked on along the waters edge… Her footsteps and those of the small antelope were solidified in the silt one finds at the edge of the lagoon and then gently covered by fine sea sand blown in from the sea... It against this incredible backdrop that Hayward's have come to host the BMW X5 Launch.

Hayward's Heads for the West Coast of South Africa - The saga continues!

I always am thrilled at the drive from Johannesburg down through the Free State and into the Karoo. It is a landscape that has so much aesthetic beauty and somehow with its endless nothingness offers so much to those that just stop for a minute and look. It is a long journey though - especially in a 8 ton truck at 90 kms/h the whole way. About 24 hours long to be exact.
