Magical weddings at The Outpost Lodge

Each year, we are honoured to host a number of out-of-this-world weddings at The Outpost Lodge in the far north of the Kruger National Park. Dreaming of getting married under the great big African sky with the sound of the bushveld all around? The Outpost Lodge may be just the spot for your big day.


One thing we can be sure of is that it’s going to be hard to choose where to host your ceremony. Magical ceremony settings include our wooden deck overlooking the river and expansive wilderness beyond; a scenic spot at the confluence of the Mutale and Luvuvhu rivers, and the dappled golden-shade of the magnificent fever tree forest.

“We’ll remember the ceremony in a secret fever tree forest, where Dani was sung down an aisle made of grass mats, and guests sat in an intimate circle, united in both their love for this place and their love for this couple. A herd of elephants roamed close by, wedding rings were passed from hand to hand, blessings were spoken, and Sean and Dani said their vows with these beloved people and the fever trees as their witnesses.” Rebecca Meissner


From a relaxed picnic set in an idyllic spot in the middle of the bush to sipping champagne in the Limpopo riverbed whilst watching the sun set, we have an array of special set up options for your reception. Enjoy an elegant evening of fine dining back at the lodge or a relaxed bush braai under the stars at the base of a candlelit baobab tree, whatever you choose we will tailor-make your day to suit you and your nearest and dearest.

“The first night we were treated to sundowners in one of the largest fever tree forests in the world. Gin flowed freely as we dined under the stars – amazing. The following day the ceremony was held under a tree at the confluence of two great rivers – pretty pointed for marriage.” Alexander Smith


Enjoy luxury accommodation for up to 32 guests at our two lodges – The Outpost Lodge and Pel’s Post – situated in the northern most part of the Kruger National Park. The Outpost Lodge accommodates 24 guests in 12 open plan, en-suite luxury spaces, cantilevered on a hill overlooking the Luvuvhu River. Pel’s Post is situated just a few minutes away and accommodates up to eight guests in four suites. Choose to take over both The Outpost Lodge and Pel’s Post, and you will have the entire place to yourself, along with private game driving vehicles and expert field guides.

“We’ll never forget the exquisite beauty of the Northern Kruger Park – the place where Sean and Dani met, worked together, fell in love and then got married. We’ll remember the game drives and bush walks, the views that took our breath away and the beautiful venue” Rebecca Meissner
