Bush weddings can be simplistic or lavish and are perfect for couples who love the concept of an African celebration…

Mabula Game Lodge caters for every dream event from the small intimate ceremony on a wide-open African savanna under an ancient tree to a large formal gala-style event.

The experienced team of coordinators have seen it all and will assist the bride or wedding organiser with choosing every detail to suit the event! It is the perfect way to celebrate your lifelong partnership with friends and family and get an early start on the honeymoon. A destination wedding that offers incredible photographic backgrounds and a setting to suit multi-generational guests is highly sought after. This luxury lodge has so much to offer a wedding party from its wonderful world-class restaurant to an ethnic Boma dining venue through to the smaller and more elegant Mvubu deck. They have hosted grand marquis-style weddings on the Shaya Moya plain; decorated with crystal and chandeliers; to a gorgeous little family affair alongside our Mvubu (Hippo) dam.

Top wedding planners from across South Africa list this Waterberg mountain range location as the pinnacle of bush wedding destinations. Lots of additional activities are available including horseback safaris, guided walks, open 4×4 safaris, hot air balloon rides, and quad biking safaris. The Wild play zone caters to the active traveler with action cricket, soccer, cricket, and basketball whilst kiddies have a gorgeous minibike track and play area to keep occupied.

The Mabula Spa offers bridal spoil packages and welcome bridal shower events as well. From the signature body ritual through to facial, make-up, and hair (outside supplier) the wellness team will arrange to pamper and prepare the bridal party for a perfect wedding.

The wedding ceremony is held in the bushveld or on the main deck of the lodge and can include a traditional Tswana choir at the ceremony. The marimba band offers beautiful accompaniment before or after the ceremony. Their gastronomic team will design a unique and elegant menu to suit your event.  There are several local florists in the nearby Bela Bela who use locally sourced flowers and are able to provide gorgeous bouquets to adorn your tables and venue. Accompanied by some of the finest South African Methode Cap Classique sparkling wines the wedding is set for success.

The reception takes place in an outdoor boma or bush venue where dinner is served under the stars, (all guests being transported by open 4×4 vehicles) or in the formal Kingfisher wedding hall where more elaborate décor and draping is possible.

A Mabula Bushveld Wedding will take your breath away, gorgeous views, spectacular African sunset and a glamorous wedding dinner surrounded by loved ones will remain in everyone’s memories for years to come. 

Mabula Game Lodge hosts weddings from 2 to 200 guests and promises to curate each event uniquely. An enticing experience in the African wilderness framed by the magnificent Waterberg Mountains is on the cards for the slightly adventurous couple who are planning the grand and wonderful destination wedding
