Why Choose Woodlands Game Lodge?

  • We offer one of the best opportunities for your wedding photos in the game reserve, with an optional Photo Safari for the wedding couple to the river/dam, ruins and many other attractive spots in the reserve, including possible wildlife shots (time permitting)
  • We do not charge extra for waiters and bar service
  • We include free accommodation (Four Star Graded) for 19 guests sharing for Saturday night (meals extra)
  • Plus the use of the most romantic, secluded honeymoon suite by the couple for the night of the wedding (spa bath big enough for 2, a view on the mountain, rock pool in front of the door, outside shower.... etc, etc)
  • With plenty of extra accommodation in the area - from 4 star to economical self catering - we find that many wedding guests exploit the opportunity to spend a night or weekend in the Bobbejaansberg and bushveld of Northern Gauteng.
