blog Idyllic wedding venue
Posted on: November 13, 2017
Whether your ultimate wedding fantasy is barefoot luxury on a misty white and blue beach, or, a safari setting with lamp-lit tables under open African skies in the bush, at Isibindi Africa, we understand that nature and romance go together perfectly.
So different from a concrete functions room at a standard hotel, we believe your wedding should be a unique experience for all involved. Specialising in intimate weddings, both safari and sea, Isibindi Africa Lodges offer the idyllic wedding venue to make your dreams come true.
Don’t be surprised if a herd of cheerful baby and adult elephant interrupt your signing ceremony as they pass below Rhino Post Safari Lodge for their late afternoon drink at the local waterhole in this private concession of the famous Kruger National Park. Or you may have curious zebra witnessing your wedding vows at the open deck of Plains Tented Camp at the edge of the Timbitene Plains in the Kruger National Park. At Thonga Beach Lodge you may have a congratulatory wave and dive from a school of dolphin passing the wooden deck overlooking the pristine beach and crystal clear ocean. Kosi Forest Lodge is a twitcher’s paradise and a myriad of enthusiastic feathered friends will welcome you to the soft sand forest. At night open fires at the boma, a path of gentle oil lamps to your tent and a wide, candle lit bubble bath under open African skies will create a memory to last forever. You may choose to walk towards a dignified giraffe for your wedding photographs at Isibindi Zulu Lodge and later dance to the rhythm of the beat of Zulu drums and let dancing maidens and handsome warriors serenade your union. If modern, luxurious safari glamour is more your theme, the spectacular glass-fronted architecture of Rhino Ridge Safari Lodge will take your breath away, as you let rhino passing in the vast valley below the lodge poignantly bless your future.
We will let you decide between romantic, candle-lit small tables or a festive, beautifully decorated long table on one of our open-air decks. Our renowned chefs will prepare a unique menu using the best of local produce and wine. And later we will sparkle romance into your suite with a romantic turndown service, sparkling wine, candles and oil lamps, open fires and deep baths with views to forever.
