Destination weddings are becoming more and more popular with international love-birds who are seeking that guaranteed sun and unique setting for their special day.
Combining a wedding location with a honeymoon destination also makes perfect sense and saves money (fewer flights, less planning and of course you can slip straight into holiday mode post-vows). A safari is a popular choice for honeymooners and the wild, natural setting of the African Bush equals wedding bliss for romantics and nature lovers alike. Locals too regularly turn to safari lodges as the hosts for their big day, so we mustn’t forget our own too.
Garonga Safari Camp offers the ultimate in romance, indulgence and that general ‘barefoot luxury’ experience which sets it up beautifully as a bush wedding venue. Little Garonga is separate to the main lodge and offers exclusivity as well as a setting that blends perfectly into the natural surrounding bush. Throw in the twice-daily game drives and that ‘safari for the soul’ experience offered through add-ons such as The Bush Bath and The Massage Sala and you have a recipe for total relaxation and rejuvenation. What could be more romantic than a night alone under the stars on The Sleep Out Deck?
