Are you tying the knot soon? What better way to celebrate true love in style than in the heart of the South African bush! If you dream of celebrating your special day while the Blue Crane calls and elephants play, look no further. Buffelsdrift Game Lodge is here to help you create a wedding as special as the love you share.

Destination: Africa

Destination weddings have become more and more popular as happy couples look to celebrate their lifelong bond in a setting as unique and remarkable as they are. A wedding at a South African game lodge like Buffelsdrift Game Lodge offers you the chance to spend your wedding morning, not in a mad city rush, but breathing in the soft scents of the bush while the water laps at the shores of the watering hole and wild animals drink their fill. 

With the misty peaks of the Swartberg Mountains as your backdrop, opt for our charming Karoo Wedding Chapel as your destination, add a bush safari for memories that will last as long as your love, or take a smaller wedding outside and enjoy our curious elephant trio as your special guests and witnesses. Our private wedding chapel- accessed through a gorgeous wooden deck perched right above the water- will leave you with magical memories, and can handle up to 50 guests with ease. Let them sip cocktails and enjoy the delicious restaurant offerings while you celebrate into the night, then wake into the stillness of a perfect African morning for an authentic bush safari. 

No matter which of our specially tailored wedding packages suits you best, Buffelsdrift Game Lodge will make your dreams a reality. All that’s left is to find the perfect fit.

Bush weddings and romance galore

What makes a bush wedding so special? Blend the total immersion of a safari adventure with the romance of African sunsets. Add the cries and calls of magical animals, and the utter stillness of an unspoilt, timeless landscape and wide-open skies that stretch into eternity.
