Romantic Venues for the Bush Wedding of your Dreams

Say “I do” at these stunning wedding venues in the heart of the Sabi Sand Game Reserve, and start your married life with unforgettable memories. A dream bush wedding can become a reality in the hands of accomplished lodge staff that will approach each and every occasion with dedication and care.

The Sabi Sand Game Reserve occupies an enviable position right next to the legendary Kruger National Park. There are no fences between these two areas, so animals are free to wander at will in a pristine wilderness. The Sabi Sand is a private and exclusive Big Five reserve where you can enjoy superb game viewing at close quarters while on the day and night drives and on foot.

A wedding in this timeless African setting takes you away from the known and familiar into a world that is exotic, wild and untamed. You'll discover peace and tranquillity in the bush and come to appreciate truly brilliant night skies. Each of these selected lodges offers something different and special for your dream location wedding in Africa.
