More Information

Two of our most popular camps can now offer a great authentic experience as well as a romantic one, with assistance all the way to plan your perfect day. Imagine being in the heart of big game country and taking your vows under an Acacia tree. The ceremony is held in camp with a beautiful flora decoration picked and prepared locally using all indigenous plants and flowers and you are welcomed by traditional Masai singing. The Masai elders will also give their blessing to you completing this special occasion. The Camp staff will then present you with a wedding cake, made in camp and then the icing on it all is a wonderful, romantic bush lunch or dinner. You can tailor the final arrangements to what you want to do on your special day, maybe a game drive in the morning or a walk with the Masai, back to camp for an al fresco lunch and then hold your ceremony during the quiet of the afternoon. Let your imagination run wild with the animals.....

Day 1

You will need to have 2 nights in Nairobi as you will need to complete your wedding formalities and paperwork. Following this, you will depart from Wilson airport to the Mara. You’ll be met at the airstrip by your safari guide from Lion Camp in open-sided 4x4 safari vehicle and will immediately be “on safari” in the Mara. Enjoy the day in the Mara with a picnic lunch on the lookout for the Big Cats. Then drive to Lion Camp and settle into your tent. Afternoon game drive, followed by a sun downer at a scenic point. Return to camp for a shower, dinner and overnight.

Day 2

Awake at dawn to the natural sounds of Masai Mara’s birdlife. After early morning tea you will have a game drive in the conservancy on the lookout for the Big Five! Return to camp for breakfast followed by a morning nature walk across the plains escorted by Masai warriors returning for lunch. In the afternoon you will go on a game drive in Olare Orok Conservancy, stopping for a sun downer at a scenic viewpoint, followed by a night game drive to look for nocturnal animals. Return to camp for dinner and overnight.

Day 3

Your wedding day, take time and relax as the big day has arrived. You can tailor the final arrangements to what you want to do on your special day, maybe a game drive in the morning or a walk with the Masai, back to camp for an al fresco lunch and then hold your ceremony during the quiet of the afternoon.

Day 4

Early morning walk in the conservancy followed by breakfast and then transfer to the airstrip for the flight to Nairobi, arriving Wilson airport at 12.15.

The Wedding Ceremony

In most destinations, your wedding ceremony will be conducted Monday to Friday (excluding local holidays).  In some destinations, local festivals and holidays will determine available wedding dates.  Generally, your wedding will take place in the grounds of the hotel unless otherwise specified.  Many hotels offer wedding gazebos for extra privacy.  Some hotels may offer more than one wedding per day with the first wedding taking place at around 10am with the last wedding at 4pm.  The majority of our weddings are conducted by a marriage officer whose title varies depending on the resort.  Where it is possible to be married by a Minister, the ceremony will be non-denominational unless otherwise stated and will be a Civil wedding.
