We invite you to confirm your love for each other in some of Africa’s most idyllic and romantic hideaways. Africa is the birthplace of humankind and let this be the birth of where your romance begins.
There is a way to make your marriage vows last. Come to Africa. With the call of a fish eagle heralding your vows to each other and the breath of Africa’s breeze running her fingers over the tops of the grasses, let your love be recognized under the eternal African sky.
With Botswana’s Okavango as your witness and a choir singing in the background, your wedding vows carry some extra weight. We will do the champagne and the canoe trip in the Selinda Spillway. Want a little something extra special? No problem.
Your ceremony is of unique importance and will be delivered by the local elders or a priest from a nearby church. Celebrate your nuptials with either a simple ceremony set out in the middle of an African plain or set against our finest Relais and Chateaux camps.
Instead of having you guests pile up gold wrapped gift boxes with toasters and wine decanters, tell your friends you want to buy a rhino’s freedom. Have your guests all chip in and pay for a rhino to be relocated and released into the wild in Botswana. A gift of freedom, a gift of love not just between two people or between friends but between our species and theirs. A gift to the wild.
Imagine making your marriage about a start of something beyond us, a symbol of the way you live your lives together, unselfishly, about giving rather than taking and about making the world better…
Imagine knowing that you make your promise to one another in the place where Man was born…
Imagine knowing that what you took away was at least equal to what to left behind…
COME TO GREAT PLAINS CONSERVATION TO EXCHANGE YOUR MARRIAGE VOWS IN THE HEART OF BOTSWANA’S WILDERNESS.
We arrange weddings in all of our Botswana camps and many a celebrity couple have elected to sneak off with a dozen or so close friends for a private and authentic African wedding.
