To get married in Africa is to answer the call of the wild. Imagine marrying the love of your life in the middle of the wilderness surrounded by stunning scenery, bountiful wildlife and hearing only nature’s calls.
That’s exactly what we did in 2016 when we organized our own wedding ceremony in the beautiful Okavango wilderness of Botswana. After experiencing a day we will never forget and realizing how incredibly lucky we were to have such a unique and special wedding, we decided to start offering this to other couples wanting a similar experience for their own special day.

In fact, we are so passionate about organising weddings here in Botswana, that we have launched a sister company to Golden Africa, Okavango Weddings, which is dedicated solely to making dreams come true for couples who wish to get married in Botswana.
It’s not just a wedding, it’s the whole experience that will be a highlight of every wedding guest’s entire life.
When thinking of a destination wedding location, South Africa often comes to mind for many people, however, Botswana is a gem of a place that is just starting to be recognized on the map as a wedding destination by many couples.
And why wouldn’t it be. With millions of acres of protected and pristine wilderness, many options for camps and lodges, culturally rich, friendly staff, numerous activities, and a dedicated team to organise every detail, Botswana offers you a rare opportunity to say “I do” in one of the best wedding destinations on offer.
Our purpose is to organise not only every detail of the wedding, but of the whole trip for every couple and their family and friends. This includes all accommodation, décor, meals, drinks, internal transfers, park fees, logistics, staffing and game-viewing activities. Every wedding is customized to each couple’s preferences.
When you arrive in Botswana, we will be with you every step of the way to ensure your wedding runs smoothly.
There can be different hurdles to overcome when organising a legal marriage in Botswana, but it can be achieved. We have experience in navigating this procedure most recently for a couple in late 2019, which was then followed by a ceremony out in the bush. There are no guarantees with a legal marriage, which is why we would look into the possibilities of this for each individual couple before proceeding.
Each wedding is tailor-made to the wishes of every couple to ensure the perfect day. A wedding ceremony in the Botswana bush is a truly memorable and unforgettable way to celebrate your union, and will give you memories which will last a lifetime; it certainly did for us!
Each wedding is tailor-made to the specifications of each couple to ensure you have the perfect day. Contact us for more information.
