Whether it is an extravagant reception or something intimate that you require, Mongena Game Lodge goes out of its way to make every brides’ dreams come true!

We are a typical weekend wedding destination venue hosting only 1 wedding per weekend.  Mongena can sleep 63 wedding guests in shared accommodation with addtiional accommodation options available within a radius of 6 km. The romantic honeymoon suite overlooking the small dam at main lodge is a must for prospective new and mature honeymooners alike. This suite is complimentary for the night of the wedding on a bed and breakfast basis.

Sunset at the Mongena dam amongst free roaming big 5 animals sets the stage for those awe inspiring wedding photographs where magical moments are created. The fire lighting ceremony has become a trademark at Mongena symbolizing unity, the beginning of a new life as husband and wife as well as signalling the start of the wedding celebration and party.

A choice of 3 ceremony venues and 2 reception venues gives the prospective bride the freedom to plan an extraordinary wedding celebration in the African bush.  

The romantic chapel situated in the main camp can seat up to 150 guests.   Acacia bush site is the perfect setting for the adventurous, bush-loving bride seeking a treetop canopy backdrop for her bush ceremony.  Should the shores of the Mongena dam entice you the upper deck of the Fisheagle boathouse with a a 360 degree view of the African bushveld and the 28 ha dam below would be the ideal setting for this extraordinary ceremony.

Tshukudu lapa at main lodge with its adjourning bar is the most popular semi-open reception venue offering maximum 150 guests an unforgetable reception under thatched roof overlooking the manicured rolling lawns and indigenous trees of the main camp.  The open-air Fisheagle boathouse boma next to the 28 ha Mongena lake can seat maximum 150 guests comfortably around the central fireplace for a stunning wedding reception under the starry African sky.

A stand-by generator ensures the continuous success of the planned function. (To give you an idea of a perfect wedding,click here to view a video done by Johan Vermeulen on Willem and Hanneke's special day)
