Wild Life Wedding Tours Music and Legal Issues

And the music…

Music is the heartbeat of Africa and no wedding on our shores is complete without an African drum roll! Local musicians, live performers and cultural dancers can transform your special occasion into a production. For the more conventional, there’s always a string quartet to play the Wedding March, a top-rate contemporary band to perform your favourite songs or a DJ to spin the discs.

Legalities

Religion and Translators

South Africa is the rainbow nation, where every race, culture, creed and religion is valued and protected by our constitution. Whether you’re Christian, Jewish, Muslim, Hindu, Buddhist or Atheist, this country respects your right to believe or otherwise and most local towns have wedding officials to preside over the nuptials. The only South African law that applies across the board is that the wedding register be signed under the roof of a venue that has a valid, registered address.

Translators

Translators can be arranged for most foreign language

Wedding Planning

From kosher to custom-made and quirky, hotels and lodges across the country cater for any type or size wedding, and in-house event coordinators are available to arrange just about anything for that unforgettable celebration. And who wouldn’t opt for someone else taking the angst out of it all, given the choice?

Romantic South Africa

Cape Town, famous for its magnificent World Heritage Site, Table Mountain, and its sun-soaked beaches, is the choice of hopeless romantics everywhere. Or declare your love on a deserted beach along the east coast with crashing waves providing the soundtrack; start your marriage on a high note among the clouds of the mountaintop; or sail into the sunset on a chartered luxury yacht as you wave your guests goodbye. Or why not do it high above the African bush in a hot air balloon! 

South Africa's Ideal Wedding Beaches

South Africa is also well known for its beautiful beaches. You’ll be spoiled for choice among the trendy hotspots of the Cape, the untamed wilderness of the Garden Route and the all-year round warmth of KwaZulu-Natal’s northern and southern coastline.  The southern coastline offers you  the  first world thing while the north coastline the wilderness, the Africa wildlife and miles of deserted sup-tropical beaches. 

The Cradle of Humankind

Only 45 minutes from the famous "goldfields" of South Africa around Johannesburg, nestling in a peaceful rural valley, lies the invaluable and ancient "Cradle of Humankind" - a place where our ancestors once roamed.

Some of these ancestors of modern humans faced extinction many millions of years ago. Others became part of a long evolutionary journey to the present day. Today their fossilised remains hold many clues to our beginnings, and perhaps even a key to our future.

Wildlife (Game) Introduction

The term wildlife, sometimes also called 'game', refers to mammals, birds, fish and reptiles that can be found in the wild. Africa has its "'lion's" share of wildlife and here we take a quick look at some of the most important and / or obvious animals in the African wildlife.

The reason for loosely calling wild life 'Game'  is said to have come from the culture of animal hunting by the early day English Aristocracy  who called it 'Gaming'.

The Big 5

Originally used only by hunters, the term 'Big Five' refers to five of Africa's greatest wild animals - lion, leopard, elephant, buffalo and rhino. As during the bygone hunting era the term "Big Five" still conjure up the romance and excitement of Africa's exotic destinations and experiences.

Imagine watching the sun set over the horizon whilst you capture the moment of a pride of lions stalking their prey. Watching a buffalo stolling to a water hole with strength and size that makes it more likely to kill a human than any other mammal.
