Bush Weddings

A traditional bush wedding is what you will experience. We offer an exception bush wedding venue situated at one of the dams (5 Minute Dam) in the middle of the Kwa Madwala Private Game Reserve. Unique ambience, bush serenity and tranquillity are what it’s all about.

Kwa Madwala’s bush weddings set the scene of a magical venue located in one of the most beautiful areas south of the Kruger. This is where the flair and simplicity of the bush speaks for itself.

The bush venue is available for your ceremony and Manyatta Rock Camp as your reception venue.

We can host weddings from just the bridal couples up to sixty people! Please phone or email Jane at reservations for a quotation on small intimate bush weddings which consists only of the bridal couple or the bridal couple, bridal party & family.
