Weddings

Inspired by the pristine surrounds and composed around Kwandwe’s ethos of ‘connected experiences’, weddings on the reserve are highly personalised ceremonies. At Great Fish River Lodge, a purposefully designed boma inspired by a traditional open-air corral can host up to 80 guests for star-lit celebrations and parties. Out on the reserve sandy river banks, escarpment plateaus, and open kopjes provide a choice of magical wilderness settings for smaller gatherings. Multi-day celebrations can feature a diverse array of safari experiences and get-togethers, including game drives, walking safaris, harvest table lunches, spa treatments, and fishing.

Honeymoons

Kwandwe is the ultimate romantic getaway for two and Great Fish River Lodge is the ideal honeymoon escape. Rooms rest just metres from the river, and each veranda looks across to the high river banks, where antelope, zebra and giraffe graze in full view of sublime outdoor showers and private plunge pools. Indulge with a pamper box on arrival, followed by romantic turndowns, sparkling wine, and in-room massage treatments.

Proposals

Getting engaged is one of the most memorable experiences of your life, and with 54,000 acres of private wilderness, the landscape at Kwandwe offers a multitude of options to get down on one knee. From pledging your love at sunset after an afternoon game drive, to dining under the vast night sky by candlelight, the options are endless. Keep the romance going with breakfasts in the bush, locally made gin tastings, couples spa treatments, or quiet moments by the pool.
