Marataba weddings Luxury tented suite Marataba weddings


There is arguably no better place to celebrate the start of a very special union than in the African bush. Whether small and intimate, or more extravagant.

Marataba Safari Lodge is highly flexible and can accommodate up to a maximum of 30 guests.


As a guideline for prospective weddings at Marataba, we have put together a package which includes,

  • A private wedding venue for your exclusive use
  • Legal fees which include fees for your abridged marriage certificate (a full marriage certificate must then be applied for which can take up to 2 months to process in South Africa. Once completed it will be mailed to your address)
  • A Christian minister to officiate the ceremony. If you require another religious ceremony, this will have to be contracted out (for your account)
  • Dedicated on-site co-ordinator to ensure the experience runs smoothly
  • Elegant wedding venue set-up, inclusive of white & cream tablecloths and overlays
  • A specially created wedding menu (exclusive of drinks). Menu can be discussed with our chef
  • A handcrafted single tiered wedding cake
