Safari Wedding

Our team had the privilege of planning two safari weddings recently and loved every second of it!

There were a million small details that went into to making each day perfect; everything from finding a Tanzanian pastor, to having the right plugs to accommodate the bride’s curling iron, to planning the details of the day of wedding day (massages before, romantic bush dinner after of course). By working with closely with the property owners and managers both weddings went off without a hitch. And then of course both couples continued on to their safari honeymoons!

Don’t tell us you’ve never thought about it….well if you really haven’t, after looking at these pictures you will be!

Safari Wedding, Brittany and Brad Guest Book Comments

Both trips of these happened to be in Tanzania, but you can get married on safari at properties throughout Africa.

Something to consider: You can always get married before you leave and then have the ceremony (minus the paperwork) while on safari. If you have your heart set on getting married in Africa you should definitely work through an expert. You want someone who can make sure you have all the required paperwork, knows what offices you need to visit once you arrive and is aware of any other restrictions. For example for Kenya you need at least two business days in Nairobi to allow enough time to complete the paperwork and to have been in the country at least four days before the ceremony. Leave those details to us and our partners; just enjoy your special day and the amazing trip that follows!
