My daughter and new son-in-law’s wedding was held here recently. Such a magnificent setting and the venue looked outstanding. The service given by the staff was extremely helpful. Was indeed a memorable occasion in beautiful surrounds.

Our Previous Successes
While our reputation for being a wedding venue of choice precedes us, we don’t take this for granted and treat every wedding as an opportunity to further entrench our good name for hosting unforgettable weddings. We can say this with confidence because it’s what our previous clients have attested – word of mouth has proven to be our greatest advertisement. Check out our testimonials page.
iNsingizi was an absolutely wonderful venue for Gordon and Emma’s South African WeddingBlessing. The wedding guests from the UK and SA enjoyed the walks, trail runs, MTB rides, the wild life and bird watching, Ali, Nadia and the staff were excellent in making it a magical, stress free celebration.
We could not have asked for a more beautiful venue to spend our special wedding weekend in. The lodge is magnificent, there really is a natural magic about it. It was the first wedding venue we went to see and it was the last – we loved it instantly. The staff are phenomenal – they all went above and beyond and then some to ensure that all our bizarre requests were seen to – we had the wedding we dreamed up. The food was incredible and abundant! the rooms are beautiful and romantic- all hidden within this wooden wonderland. The spa treatments are out of this world! For a weekend away to escape from reality or to use for your big day I would highly recommend this gem.
Thanks!!! I cannot believe it’s already been a week !!!! We had such a great time – thanks so much to you and the rest of the staff for all your work!!!!
We absolutely looooved the ceremony site under the trees – just perfect.
@iNsingizi Lodge & Spa – Our Approach
Our flexible approach allows each bride to reflect her own unique personal style. Once you’ve chosen your wedding date, we’ll look at the various options available for your reception and ceremony.
We’ll then systematically work through who needs to do what and by when, and whether you require any of our additional services or those of our reliable and highly rated suppliers and recommended referrals.
Once this is all done, we’ll turn our attention to what you and your guests will be eating and drinking on the day. We have a number of options and, in consultation with you, we’ll customise these to ensure you’re thrilled with the menu you choose.
Two weeks (14 days) before your wedding day, we’ll ask you to advise us of your final guest numbers to enable us to start preparations well in advance.
At the same time, you’ll need to give us any changes to your accommodation and bar requirements, and advise us of other logistical arrangements, such as florist and minister arrival times.
Once these changes are given, the preparations will be considered final and no alterations, cancellations or amendments will be entered into.
