About the Bayete Group
Bayete began as a childhood dream - a dream that has come true. Our founder, St. John Holloway was born in Africa, but went to university in the USA and settled there. But his love of Africa, the environment, the culture, the wide-open spaces, the animals and way of life never left him. He now has the best of both worlds and runs Bayete in Africa with the business expertise of American business standards and ideals.
He chose Bayete as the name of his dream as it epitomizes Africa. Bayete, means salute - in Zulu, the phrase is Bayete Nkosi and means 'salute to the king/chief' or 'salute of honor,' it is the highest form of respect given - a royal salute give to all of the guests of Bayete Group.
