The Wedding Venue

Our Lapa is beautifully situated overlooking pristine indigenous forest with the Outeniqua and Tsitsikamma mountain ranges, providing the perfect backdrop to the occasion. The Lapa can accommodate up to 100 guests comfortably, and with its open plan design, 180 degree views and natural rustic finishes, it offers a true taste of Africa yet adapts easily to a variety of themes and décor. A vast deck and equipped kitchen complete the facilities.

The resident herd of elephants will pay tribute to your function if you wish. There is nothing more wonderful than a special occasion being blessed by these gentle giants. Depending on your sequence of events, your guests can interact with the elephants before or during the function.

Luxurious accommodation is provided for in the Elephant Lodge. Here six stylish rooms, each with a distinct elephant theme and a central lounge overlooking the elephants, deliver a once-in-a-lifetime experience.
