Gauteng Wedding Venues:

Gauteng is the economic heartland of South Africa and although it does not have the epic beauty of the Western Cape or the warm tropical climate of KwaZulu Natal, it is still situated in the heartland of the African veld. This means that its two largest cities, Pretoria and Johannesburg, are only a few hours drive away from some of the most amazing African game lodges and animal reserves in the world. Johannesburg also has one of the largest and most modern airports on the African continent and it the perfect destination for visitors who are from out of the country and want to get married in the African bushveld. Some of the best Guateng Wedding Venues include:

Amanzingwe Lodge
Budmarsh Private Lodge

With its tropical coastal resorts along the east coast, the picturesque Natal Midlands and the towering Drakensburg Mountains KwaZulu Natal has it all. This includes a number of small privately owned game farms. Some of the best venues in KwaZulu Natal are:
