4 Reasons a wedding at Saragossa Game Reserve should be your ultimate dream
Are wedding bells in your future? With destination weddings all the rage, what could be better to celebrate your special day together then an idyllic ceremony custom-tailored to your needs, with the bustling life of the African bush your spectacular backdrop?
There’s nothing more special than a Saragossa Wedding- it’s time to celebrate love and share it. We’ve made it our mission to take the weight off of your shoulders and help ensure the day is every bit as special as you deserve.
1.More than just a bush wedding
We offer something a little more than the average ‘Safari Wedding’ here at Saragossa Lodge. You’re free to hold your ceremony wherever you wish on the reserve or farm. With the idyllic Eland’s Valley as the perfect frame, that means you could find yourself typing the knot anywhere from the wild savannah, to our pecan groves, or perched on top of a mountain as the sun rises.
2. The perfect reception
Our Lapa, carved from the rocks of the reserve and packed with rustic charm, allows for up to 120 wedding guests at the reception. Guests are free to wander onto the walkway over the water, or simply soak up the sunset as they celebrate your love in style. Add a personal touch with your own choice of wedding colours, host a roaring bonfire or just dance the night away. We’re happy to work with the happy couple, or your wedding planners, to help make sure it’s a perfect day.
3. Accommodation, simplified
Of course, with our host of special wedding packages at hand, accommodating your guests (and planning your honeymoon) has never been simpler. Give yourself the peace of mind (and let guests spoil themselves, too) with a stay on the reserve to round off a beautiful day. No rush, no fuss, no designated drivers… just the people you love celebrating your future together.
4. The safari dream, no risk, no hassle
The gorgeous Eland’s river valley is fully malaria free. Plenty of conveniences are only a short drive away, so anyone who forgot their contact lens solution or needs a new tie won’t find themselves isolated in the middle of nowhere. Our luxurious restaurant provides only the best farm-to-table produce and dishes, dripping in the tastes of Africa. And yet you’re in the bush, surrounded by some of the most delightful scenery and spectacular wildlife displays you will ever encounter. Wild hippos will grunt softly in the lake as your guests celebrate. A dawn chorus of birds will greet the dawn on your special day. What could be more perfect?
Safari weddings have a reputation as difficult to organise, especially if you have guests travelling from all corners of the globe. Not so at Saragossa Game Reserve! With spectacular scenery, redolent animal life, delectable food and every convenience you could need, there’s only one thing left to say… and that’s ‘I do’!
