Wedding Venue at Tau

South African Wedding Venue

For those wedding couples with a common love for the African Bush, who would prefer to avoid a traditional wedding in favour of a unique wedding experience, Tau Game Lodge offers an adventurous alternative with its South African wedding venue.

Tau Game Lodge, situated in the malaria-free Madikwe Game Reserve, has hosted various never-to-be-forgotten weddings.


A Safari Wedding Destination

The Lodge can host and accommodate smaller, intimate wedding parties of up to 60 people. Taking over the entire Lodge for a wedding has definite advantages, in that the whole day can be designed to suit the couple's needs and guests don't have to drive home afterwards.

We offer a personalised and professional service for the event and a flexible package to suit both your budget and personal style.

This exciting, romantic setting with beautiful African sunsets and sunrises will make the perfect backdrop for an unforgettable occasion. The hire of our wedding venue is inclusive of

  • Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner
  • use of all lodge facilities for the function
  • teas & coffees
  • a safari in an open Land Rover
  • one nights accommodation (minimum 2 night stay over weekends)

The menu is flexible and can be tailor-made according to the couple's preferences for their celebration meal, whether that be

  • a champagne breakfast or brunch
  • a lunch overlooking the spectacular waterhole, followed by an exciting Safari through "Big 5" country
  • a romantic Boma dinner around the fire, under the stars
Wedding Venue at Tau Game Lodge

There is a licensed bar in the main building and an outside bar in the Boma, where any wine or liquor can be made available on request (bar purchases are extras).

Although there is no formal Chapel, the Lodge's buildings have served the purpose on many occasions, while Wildebeest, Impala or Kudu witnessed the wedding from the far side of the waterhole. For the more adventurous bridal couple there is an option of a bush ceremony which takes place at a beautiful selected site in the Reserve, the standard set up for this ceremony includes a gazebo, red carpet and chairs with white chair covers.

We will be able to give you contact numbers for a florist, photographer and minister (these services are not included in the package).

This very special, and often fairly stressful day, can be turned into an extraordinary occasion, focused on spending quality time with dear friends and close family in a relaxed environment at our South African wedding venue in the wild.
