If you love being in nature and have an appreciation for the spirit of the African bush, we highly recommend a wedding at one of our private lodges. Although wedding party numbers are limited due to Lodge sizes, this can add to an unforgettable experience, shared only with close friends and family.
We take our responsibility as custodians of such a memorable event really seriously, and will literally move heaven and earth to ensure that every detail is perfectly organised, and every need met.
Let us help you with the planning and execution of your wedding day in one of Africa’s most beautiful spots – Madikwe Game Reserve.
“We recently held our wedding here, and what an amazing place with amazing people. We have been to Madikwe before, and knew that we would have an excellent experience but we never thought that they could be even better! They pulled out all the stops, from the rangers to the managers who helped us with every little detail and request – no matter how small.
What a wonderful friendly bunch of people in the most beautiful setting. All we can say is Thank You – Thank You – Thank You. And we look forward to coming back soon.”
- Warren and Nat Shaw
There are many unique options in respect of reception venues for a memorable wedding celebration.
Every member of the Madikwe team strives to make every guest’s experience a memorable one.
The ONELIFE MORE boutique has a selection of gorgeous gifts for family and close friends.
