Weddings & Honeymoon
If you'd like to say ‘I do' under African skies, and spend your honeymoon in a land of incomparable enchantment, then say ‘Yes!' at the Mara Serena Safari Lodge. We guarantee you a beautiful day, a wedding banquet in traditional safari style, a Maasai guard of honour, and the chance to end your special day in the indigo stillness of an African night. Also, all you'll have to do on the day is enjoy it. We do the rest.
As to formalities; from registrar to certificate, cake to champagne, all will be arranged. We also offer some unique family and friends accommodation packages, ‘his and hers' pre-wedding preparation options, the option of a sumptuous suite, a balloon safari just for two, or a ceremony on the banks of the famous Mara River.
Wedding options include:
A wedding ceremony by our panoramic pool, high above the plains of the Mara.
An exclusive wedding ceremony on a hill overlooking the Mara River – with Maasai dancers, blessing by Maasai elders, Maasai guard of honour for the bride and traditional Maasai beaded gifts.
An utterly unique wedding in a shaded glade by the hippo pools of the Mara River with a Maasai escort along the river bank and a Maasai warrior guard of honour.
A wedding held in an authentic Maasai Manyatta – just half an hour’s drive from the lodge, which will include a traditional Maasai welcome, dancing, singing and a blessing by the elders.
Individually themed champagne reception in our dedicated conference centre, which is ideally placed overlooking the plains and offers both a scenic outdoor terrace and gracious indoor space.
Organization of separate or joint pre-wedding ‘stag’ night or ‘hen’ nights for the wedding party with Maasai dance displays and singing – these can be staged at the lodge, by the pool or at our panoramic hill-top site overlooking the famous Mara plains – with campfire, lanterns, guitarist and hot and cold canapes
