The low quality video at the bottom best explains it.

Like the description says, you have to clear this stage without being seen by the drones and without dying. If that happens, restart the stage.

Hyde Park North- Drones, Red Mines and stupid people
I remember being a kid and going to parks. My favorite thing to do there was to climb around all the abandoned and overturned tanks while playing with dead horses.

While the last two levels were all about how quickly you needed to go, the absolute vital key to this one is patience. You almost have to go into this one knowing that you can not do it quick and come out alive. The other biggest thing to consider when doing this level is that the humans will totally screw everything up for you!!!! You must know where they are and how you will trigger them. If done wrong, you can quickly be killed or throw the drones out of their preset flight plan. While I am writing this, I am voicing this part of the guide to help you with Ninja in Tweed. When going for this, if you are spotted or even think you are spotted, simply restart the level.You can alter your strategy a little differently when NOT going for the big achievement but for safety, I would not recommend deviating from this plan very far.

A. After your long walk in the park, move forward a little to trigger a long cut-scene. Upon regaining control, move ahead to the first point of cover. Notice the small dip in the path? Stay there. Up ahead a soldier will walk into a laser shot. There three drones in the area right now. The one flying highest is on a long path somewhere far away. Let it pass and wait for the lower flying one to approach you and get directly over your head. Going too soon will trigger the next human to be spotted by the drone and blows your cover. Quickly mover ahead and roll to the next point of cover.

B. Although possible to get there and out before the drone is able to see you, wait here and let it go to the right and back again. Leaving too early triggers the next human to be spotted by the drone far ahead too soon. When the drone is back again over the tank and heading left, quickly run to the right. Cross the tank and DO NOT jump down. Climb to the top of the hill and wait just at the top left of it.

C. You know you are at the right spot when the camera angle changes greatly. Look to the left to be sure you are not being followed by an earlier drone. If so, head to the left for cover under old sewer looking thing. In the small valley ahead are two more drones. Wait for the higher flying one to complete it's search by turning around at the top of the hill. When it starts heading to the right, casually go left down the hill stopping at the base of the valley on the left. Camp just behind a destroyed shrub. The lower drone will swing it's light at you and then back at the wall on the right. Now is when you run ahead into the small passage.

D. Quickly move ahead and up the ladder. There is a human that will be triggered under the next point of cover. If you got here quickly wait an extra second or two before heading partway up the hill. Your goal is to trigger the human so that the drone spots the human just over the hill. Triggering the human too soon will result in the human getting to safety just over the and not being spotted by the drone. Triggering the human too late will result in the drone either killing you or making it's return trip too soon. Anyway, after sending the human to it's doom take shelter under the tank towards the left side of it. If done correctly, you should soon see two drones approaching close by each other. Wait for them to get over you a make your way up and over the hill.

E. Stop about halfway down the hill just past the shelter point on the left. On drones light will shine in the valley and move back. After the light starts heading to the right, wait about five seconds before you head to the right to trigger another human. This must be done at the right time or that dumb person will alert the drone resulting in you getting spotted. If that happens, run back to the shelter to the left. After the human is triggered, wait in the lower flat ground. You will see the light bounce back for a little while towards you. When it goes right again, run to the right and crawl.

F. The drone should be heading to the left by the time you reach the end of the tunnel. Exit and keep heading right over the hill and a truck. You will come to crate that you need to push to the right. The box needs to be pushed a certain way otherwise you will have a really long but not impossible jump to make. Start pushing the box as normal but DO NOT STOP pushing right. If done correctly, you probably kicked the box a little causing it to land funny and giving you a shorter jumpt to make. Next, carefully drop down, get a running start, jump to the box and QUICKJUMP to the next surface. DO NOT STAY ON THE BOX FOR LONG.
if it did not go the way you planned and the box landed way to the right in the fire. Well, now you have to do a LONGJUMP. The corner surface is kind of rounded but your feet can walk well past that. Really give yourself plenty of distance and jump at the edge of the ledge. Then QUICKJUMP to the next surface.

G. You are going to explode two drones here. Be careful that a drone is not flying to the left of the next point of cover and get under it. In this area, there are four drones that survey this point and a mine. Your next goal, is to detonate the mine destroying at least two drones. The first drone, hovers nearby. The second drone has a long patrol that takes about 60 seconds to complete. The third flies high above you and the forth is low but does not come back all the way over you. Wait until the second drone returns, flying above the tank you are under the first drone should give you a moment when it is not shining it's light on the mine. When that happens, trigger the mine and quickly head BACK TO THE LEFT. Be very careful not to trigger the human to run or to be spotted or to be blasted by the mine.

If you lucky, you might get this here or at another spot when the mine explodes a drone sending it flying into another drone:

H. Wait here until you see the high flying drone fly directly over you. When it is to the left of the tank, quickly, roll under the next tank and head back to the left under the first tank. Wait here until the drone overhead goes to the right. Wait a few seconds. The next human is ahead and is triggered when you reach the top of the small hill. The human will run to the left. The best way to do this is when both drones are to your left of the cover. This may take a very long time to happen. Otherwise, you can experiment a little to find an alternative way of doing this part. In this scenario, just haul donkey over the hills, past the mine and under the next piece of cover.

G. Alright, under this piece of cover, guess what? Wait here. There are two drones that can be seen just to the right of your position and a final human. Wait until they are both far to the right. When it is safe from both sides, make your way to the right and under the cover.

H. You are done with humans but you have a series of really hard jumps to make. Your basic goal is to cross safely and your cue to run to the right is the third drone whose light can just barely be seen from where you are. You are going to have to wait some time and while waiting make sure you are moving to the center to avoid the search lights. It' LIGHT has a cycle of about 45-50 seconds.

If you happen to see the distant light of the far off search light, make a run for it as soon as it starts to the right and do not stop. Roll under the last piece of cover and head over to the right over a tank. Whew!
You MAY find it beneficial to destroy the lower flying drone with the mine. You will have to time it to avoid being spotted but basically you need to jump to the first island and quickly jump safely BACK. After you do that wait for you cue to make your run.

"I'd like to add a quick tip regarding the final area with the fire pits and mines. If you want to destroy the lower patrolling drone, wait for it to pass over the first mine, count 7 seconds, then run and deploy the mine. It should take out one drone, making this section (a little bit) easier." shotgunbilly555
