So why get married in South Africa at Ulusaba everyone said??
Take a look at the piccys......
Well you only have to look at the most amazing views, sunset, animals (leopards inparticular) and add the food, the hospitality, the staff for the most awesome experience of a life time to remember!..... and not to forget that Ricjhard popped in for Christmas with his family on the day of our wedding.
There was no indecision about the venue, and dreaming of pictures on the deck.... the only question was safari lodge or rock lodge.....They are both very different....think we made the right decision the views from the Rock lodge and the family feel is amazing..... to sit and have lunch on the deck, see the bush moving and then spot a pack of lions chasing a herd or wilderbeasts...... We were unsure at first if we'd made the right decision and if it might be a bit stuffy and the other guests would be a little too refined for our liking but they were all great and socialable and made it a memorable stay.
We loved everything about it....the food, the staff were amazing.....
We were upgraded to the Rock Suite, lovelly suite, bathroom, far too big for the two of us but my wedding dress had a room of its own all week....
The game viewing was amazing....Greg and James did a great job, during our 3 days of drives we saw EVERYTHING!!!! Many amazing leopard sightings, lions, elephants, etc..... and the very evasive Wild Dog which even Mr B is still to see....
I had no idea what to expect of our wedding...... we chose Kings Rock, Al arrived by Landrover, followed by me 5 mins later..... they'd set up it up really well.....some sculptures, some canapes, strawberries, wedding cake and at least 4 bottles of my favourite Veuve Cliquet Champagne. The staff turned out and sang, the miister was hilarious. the staff doubled up as a video man, and the photographer was great and has put together the most amazing album. It was 36 degrees at 4.30pm in the afternoon but the breeze was lovelly, the rock lodge on the hill in the background, the hippo's snorting and the lions roaring........... You'd hardly of noticied we were the only guests........
Without doubt the best experience ever and I grinned and smiled all day it was beautiful.......... the day was finished off by an amazing sunset, dinner of out choice of favourite foods, copious amounts of champagne and a few drinks with our newly made friends.
Yes its not cheap, but its an amazing experience and you don't want for anything!!
Get saving and just do it! We'll be back!
It's a very special experience.
