Inspired by the pristine natural surrounds and composed around Kwandwe’s ethos of ‘connected experiences’, weddings are designed to be filled with moments celebrated together in a way that is authentic to each couple, no matter the size of the celebration. Highly personalised ceremonies within the open African bush, surrounded by nothing but miles of wilderness, are contrasted with multi-day celebrations featuring a diverse array of safari experiences and get-togethers.
Game drives, Big Game walks, fishing and birding may be interspersed with cigar and whisky lunches deep in the reserve for the groom and his stags whilst the ladies enjoy spa treatments, a harvest table of freshly prepared seasonal delights and South Africa’s best sparkling wine back at one of the lodges.
A purposefully designed boma, inspired by a traditional open-air corral, is available on the banks of the Great Fish River with space for a dance floor and seating for up to 100 guests for larger, star-lit celebrations and ‘wild’ parties. Out on the reserve sandy river banks, escarpment plateaus with views to eternity and open kopjes provide a choice of magical wilderness settings for smaller gatherings. No two events will ever be the same with over 54 000 acres of wilderness on offer.
