The popularity of destination weddings has taken off as couples look for unique experiences for themselves and to share with their guests. And there are few locations that can enchant like the Southern African bush.
An immemorial land sets the scene for another tale as old as time… love. The magic of the game-filled plains and star-studded skies cannot be underestimated when the matters at hand are romance and eternal devotion. A wedding here will be an experience you and your guests feel and remember long after the time has passed.
Coming down to earth a little, a plan to tie the knot in a far-flung locale requires more than just buying plane tickets and booking accommodation. But the benefits, over a local wedding, can be summed up as relaxed, affordable, and exciting.

Many lodges offer wedding packages that take care of all the essentials for a beautiful ceremony and reception – as well as the legal side, including their country’s marriage license requirements. To ensure everything comes together as planned, a dedicated on-site co-ordinator is at your service. This leaves you with time to focus on each other, spend with your family and friends, and take it all in.
The occasion is also typically less expensive, relieving another commonly-felt pressure. Your setting needs little dressing up – the natural surrounds are the main feature and one of the most unforgettable elements of your special day. Your package may also offer complimentary inclusions, like couple accommodation. It is reasonable to ask guests to pay for their stays – this is a holiday for them, too.
The whole affair is inspiring! The natural beauty, opportunities to find adventure, and engage with rich local cultures enhance the celebration experience for you and your guests. They even managed to get a family of elephants to attend our ceremony and a pair of warthogs to greet us when we arrived at the Treehouse! – Bride, Addie Sutkiewicz – Tinga Lodge, Lion Sands Game Reserve.
