A beautiful venue for your wedding or conference

How does being united in marriage surrounded by the beauty of the African bush sound? Magnificent - that’s right! There is something incredibly romantic about being united in love with the sounds of Africa around you, that warm and ever welcoming African sun on your back and the enchanting history of the Zulu kingdom paving the way for your future together.

Whether you are looking to keep it simple and intimate with just a few guests, or want to have a larger wedding of up to 80 people, we are here to make your special day a memorable one - bringing the beauty and splendour of Ubizane into your happy day.

We have perfected our packages over the years to provide you with an abundance of options that can be tailored to suit your individual needs. Choose between our beautiful Tree Lodge Lounge with the watering hole as a backdrop, for a stunning, intimate setting, or go for a truly African feel by saying your ‘I do’s’ in the bush, set either high up on the Ubizane hill or deep within the romantic fever tree forest.

When it comes to the reception, again you have the option of choosing where you would like to spend this romantic and exciting part of your day. Dine under the stars surrounded by the African bush, in a relaxed environment with professional service and catering, or keep it more closed and intimate with candlelit ambience in the Tree Lodge Boma. Feast on our fine, home-cooked cuisines that can be tailored to your specific desires.

Whatever package you choose here at Ubizane, you are guaranteed to leave with memories for a lifetime and an even greater love for Africa and all her beauty. An Ubizane wedding is unique and truly spectacular, providing you with peace of mind on your special day, pure enjoyment and photo opportunities that will take your breath away.

We look forward to hosting your special day and sharing in the joy and beauty of your new life as a married couple.

VENUES

The Bomas

There is something truly magical about celebrating your love under the African skies, with stars above you, in an intimate and rustic setting. Our boma’s have been beautifully laid out to create that authentic African feeling, helping you to embrace the outdoors while still feeling romantic and special.

Choose from either our Tree Lodge boma or the Safari Lodge boma for your special day - both are beautiful and unique in their own ways. Both boma’s come with a bonfire pit for those chilly winter weddings, as well as bar areas to keep your guests hydrated and happy during this fun time.

Fever Tree Forest

Fancy a bush dinner in our majestic Fever Tree Forest? This venue will make you feel like a fairy in an enchanted forest, with tables laid out amongst these charming trees and the peaceful calling of the bush babies and familiar hooting of the owls, adding to the ambience of the serene setting. There is little that compares to that smell of nature and the fresh, crisp air in your face. If you choose to have your ceremony in the forest, you can walk down the aisle with the beauty of the fever trees as your pathway and the songs of the birds of the forest as your music. Place candles down the pathway to enhance your fairytale wedding for a truly captivating day.

Bush Deck

For an even more intimate ceremony, go deep into the Ubizane bush to our hidden bush deck, which is surrounded by the lush greens of the reserve and the African skies as your backdrop. The surroundings are so peaceful and quiet, if you listen carefully enough, you may even hear the buzzing of bees. To ensure this quiet setting, all guests are taken to the venue by our open Land Rovers so that no cars are able to move in and out of the area, disturbing the natural quiet.

This venue is perfect for conferences of various sizes with the open space and pretty setting. The centre is air-conditioned for the warmer or colder days and comes with trestle tables and comfortable seating for a relaxed and laid back environment. The centre is also fully equipped with a coffee and water station and loo’s - any other personal requests can be organised as per company requirements.
