If you’re planning a travel incentive, there are times when you want to think out of the box. In those situations when you need to think big – consider a safari. It’s a big idea, but sometimes, that’s just what you need.

“We know that the way you treat your customers – and your own teams – matters but are you giving them an experience that gets them to think beyond everyday conceptual boundaries?” asks Peter Hayward, Adventure Extraordinaire of Hayward’s Grand Safari Company.

“When you take people out of their traditional environments you encourage them to engage and create; it’s like the San who invented their own type of bow and arrow in order to hunt effectively; suddenly new frontiers are forged for group participants in more ways than one. We take them out of their comfort zone and the conventional four walls of the corporate world and provide them with an experiential journey on the biggest adventure of their lives… somewhere in Africa,”

Peter has devised a concept to keep everyone occupied at their authentic African safari camp at Hayward’s Grand Safari Company’s headquarters, located in Gauteng’s Dinokeng Big 5 Game Reserve, situated just 40 minutes north of Pretoria..  From the Cradle of Mankind to the Waterberg or the Kruger, from the Kalahari to the Okavango Delta to the Namib Desert, Hayward’s provides expeditions into unknown territories for only the very best 5-Star staff conference, brand launch, sales seminar or motivational staff team build.

The business gives VIP 5 Star private groups of 40 to 200 guests with an authentic luxury mobile tented safari camp and they have been of grand safari service to an array of celebrities, royalty, business tycoons and celebrity brides for their absolutely private Out of Africa functions.

To mark their long lineage of Grand Safari expeditions into Africa, and celebrate nearly 193 years of adventure into natural reserves that today still remained intact, Peter Hayward and his team are offering a sneak preview invitation to experience the tastes, sights, smells and ambiance of an authentic and world-class African Safari camp at their South African headquarters situated adjacent to Gauteng’s Dinokeng Big 5 Game Reserve, just 40 minutes north of Pretoria.

During the day, corporate business is conducted in white safari tents outfitted in latest communications technology. Breakaways range from rhino tracking on foot with a safari guide to hot air balloon trips or helicopter tours deeper into the wilderness reserves of camp locations. The only neighbours being Africa’s Big 5 and all the fauna ranging down to also encompass the Little 5.ir balloon trips or helicopter tours deeper into the wilderness reserves of camp locations.

“Very few people, even industry stalwarts such as the CEO or Chairmen of the board have sat under the expansive night sky and observed the spectacular magnificence of the full stretch of the Milky Way while an elephant munches nearby on a Morula tree, so close you can hear his stomach rumble,” says Peter.

Cultural engagement with themed evenings of traditional trader’s camps, astronomy experts, ecological movers and shakers and world class speakers and teachers provide a backdrop to education, communication, interactive dynamics and multi-layered engagement; surrounded by the luxury of whiskey and gin tastings, 5-course dinners and interpersonal interactions.

“The dichotomy of world class luxury and issues surrounding bio and cultural diversity, and the lessons that can be learned there not only open doors for richer engagement, they create memories and an invitation to reach further and deeper in the individual’s own life,” says Peter. “It profoundly changes people’s mindset forever.”
