5 reasons why you should consider a game lodge wedding

Finding a wedding venue that meets your unique list of requirements as a couple is one of the most important elements of the planning process – contributing to your photos, the theme and the atmosphere. iNsingizi Game Lodge and Spa, situated in the rolling hills of Mid-Illovo between Durban and Pietermaritzburg, ticks all those essential wedding boxes.

Here are five reasons why iNsingizi Game Lodge and Spa is a good choice for you:

  1. Indigenous bush and game.

The outdoors setting fulfils many of the requirements on a wedding-wish list. Firstly, with high and low areas of indigenous bush, foliage and flowers, an outdoor wedding is simply a photographer’s paradise! Tie in a few breath-taking sunsets and you couldn’t hope for a more romantic setting. It goes without saying that your guests will be utterly entertained taking in the natural beauty that surrounds them, while spotting the abundant wildlife and unique birds that call iNsingizi home.

  • Different settings in one venue.

While some venues have one unique area to host weddings, iNsingizi Game Lodge and Spa provides couples with various options all which can be tailored to suit a couple’s specific needs. Say your “I Do’s” in a romantic thatch chapel overlooking a small dam, surrounded by indigenous trees or be one of the first couples to share your special moment out in the African bush in the new open-air altar, presided over by an ancient Umdoni tree and rock altar, affording guests a bird’s eye view of the ceremony from the amphitheatre-style seating. Both venues easily seat up to 120 guests. In addition, iNsingizi is currently building an even bigger venue that is set to host up to 200 guests.

  • Catering: check!

No need to hire an outside caterer as iNsingizi offers a broad selection of menu options (including antipasti platters, mini bunny chows, beef fillet, gammon pavlovas and iNsingizi’s famous brownies) to cater for just about any dietary requirement in their spacious thatched reception area nestled above a valley overlooking abundant natural bush. iNisingizi are all about customising to their guests’ unique preferences so chat to them about your ideal wedding menu!

  • Exclusive use of the lodge.

One of the distinct advantages of hosting a wedding at iNsingizi is the exclusive use of the entire lodge and spa for the wedding party. That’s right, no need to worry about other guests interfering with your big day or a lack of accommodation; book your guests into iNsingizi’s forest, bush, hilltop or treehouse rooms or chalets for a memorable wedding weekend!

  • Flexibility.

Not everyone wants a wedding in the traditional sense – elopements, vow renewals and out-of-the-ordinary requests are becoming more popular. No matter what your style or choice, iNsingizi’s customisable offering specialises in more intimate style weddings where the focus is right where it should be – on the couple sharing their love. What’s more, you have the additional option of making use of the relaxing spa treatments and varying trails abundant with local wildlife.
