The entire resort is designed to have as little negative impact on the environment as possible, actually contributing to and aiding in its conservation. This will assure environmentally-conscious bridal couples that their wedding or honeymoon venue is in line with their ideals.

Africa’s Kingdom of Pleasure is a popular wedding venue, and has been used by couples from all over the world. All types and styles of weddings have been hosted here, and the wedding coordinators are familiar with the legal and other requirements, taking many of the stresses and pressures off of the bridal couple. There is an on-site chapel, the Wind Chime, which showcases the views of the Pilanesberg Mountains beautifully.
