1. Incredible Ceremony & Reception Settings

Both the wedding ceremony and reception typically take place in the heart of the bushveld or on the main deck of the lodge overlooking an active waterhole, although this is entirely up to the bride and groom.

The Honeymoon Suite at Madikwe Hills is set high up on a hill with jaw-dropping views over the lush wilderness. The suite features a private plunge pool, an outside shower, a spacious lounge, four-poster king size beds, a stocked mini-bar and air conditioning. With scenic views of a watering hole, you’ll be almost guaranteed wildlife sightings from the comfort of your private deck. You won’t be able to resist the claw-foot bath tub built into a well-concealed outdoor corner for a secluded soak.

5. A Built-in Safari Honeymoon Destination

Not only is Madikwe Hills a dreamy venue for a bush wedding, the reserve is also an unforgettable destination for a honeymoon. Think twice daily game drives, dining under the stars every night and game viewing while having your morning coffee.
