Showing 1 - 3 of 3 Drakensberg Wedding Venues
When it comes to fairytale weddings, there are few that can compare to a majestic and spectacular Drakensberg wedding. Shrouded in romance, this 243 000 hectare stretch of mountain peaks should definitely be on every bridal couple's list of potential venues as well as honeymoon destinations.
With peaks towering to an average height of 3000 metres, most Drakensberg wedding venues offer sweeping views of KwaZulu Natal on the one side and Lesotho on the other, with wetlands, sugar cane fields, forests and rivers as far as the eye can see. When it comes to finding the perfect backdrop for your wedding pictures, couples are absolutely spoiled for choice – it's like choosing from the glossy pages of a travel catalogue: crystal waterfalls, enchanting caves, mystical rock pools and meandering streams, each more magical than the last.
Tucked away in magical valleys, sitting on the foothills of the mountain or perched on the very peaks, each Drakensberg wedding venue is surrounded by its own little oasis of tranquillity and crisp mountain air, with no man-made building in sight to interrupt the panoramic views. Venues range from luxurious mountain lodges to five star resorts and horse ranches, all of which offer comfortable accommodation and ample entertainment for couples and guests alike. These venues have all been designed to blend in with the environment so as not to interfere with Mother Nature's beautiful visage.
A Drakensberg wedding celebration is usually more of a wedding weekend away than simply a wedding day and most couples end up spending their entire honeymoon rejuvenating amidst its captivating peaks. Whether exploring the mountains on a guided hiking adventure or on horseback, the Drakensberg offers endless sights, nooks and crannies to be seen and experienced, setting scene for a wedding day and honeymoon that you're not likely to forget, well, ever.
While the nearest cities are quite a distance away, most venues offer all the services you require to put together the wedding you've always dreamed of. Then again, with such exquisite views you don't need much else aside from good food, company and a glass of good wine. Travelling up the winding roads might prove a challenge for guests who aren't familiar with the area, hence it is advisable to arrange a shuttle to ensure that every guest arrives safe and sound, ready to celebrate your spirited and magnificent Drakensberg wedding.
