Wedding and Function venue


Emily and Harry’s great African romance touches the hearts of all who visit our river lodge. Their love was forged in the heart and wildness of our great continent and continues today on the banks of the Bitou River over every glass of red wine shared under starry skies, and in every heartwarming toast and “I do”.
