Wedding Safari

A South African safari wedding experience | Lion Sands

What can we say, we got married here on 5 May 2016 and from the moment we arrived, they could not do enough for us. All the staff were absolutely amazing! If you want total luxury and a beautiful lodge, with amazing safari, then this is the place to stay! The food was beautiful, with amazing menus and choice, and we were assigned our own butler, the amazing David who was lovely, for our stay! Our field guides, Neil and Albert were amazing and exceeded our safari expectations on each game drive. We also stayed in the Kingston Treehouse on our wedding night, which was the most out-of-this-world experience. Looking out over the tree canopy, amazing stargazing, and a little bushbaby thief who stole and ate our luxury chocolates in the night – just fantastic! We loved this place so much, we are hoping to return for our one-year anniversary. It will always be a very special place to us and we cannot recommend it enough! Beautiful place! Beautiful people!

All our love,
Kris and Brooke Schofield
