1. Beautiful landscapes
Most of the most memorable weddings that I have been part of had a connection with the venue in some way. There’s a connection, even if you have only dreamed about going. Africa is more than just words. It has a magic that’s hard to describe, and only experienced.
Africa is not just a safari destination. It has a vast range of landscapes. From pristine beaches, with palm trees that sway in the breeze, to lush rainforests, rolling sand-dunes in the deserts, and vineyards in the mountains, there are so many things you can do in Africa. Africa has some of the most beautiful natural wonders on the planet, including the Pyramids of Egypt and the largest waterfalls in the world, Victoria Falls. Africa’s sunsets, which are breathtaking and unforgettable to watch, make these scapes even more stunning.
2. Accommodation and wedding venues that are world renowned
No matter what type of traveler you are… whether you’re an adventurous, culture-loving, wildlife-loving, or just love to travel for the senses… there are countless venues and accommodations that are world renowned. Accommodations range from private homes to suites, and can accommodate wedding parties of any size. Imagine the experience your guests will have sitting on their veranda. Or celebrate your love beneath the African night sky?
Africa welcomes you and your guests with a spirit of hospitality that is rooted in its culture. In Zambia, luxury venues such as Lilayi Lodge offer gourmet dining with an explosion of flavours created by top chefs using ingredients sourced locally and grown on-site.
