Weddings in the Wild

December 15, 2017 - 3 minutes read

From small, simple ceremonies to gala multi-day extravaganzas, Cheli & Peacock can arrange the ultimate destination wedding in the African wild.

Romantic destination weddings can be arranged anywhere in Kenya or Tanzania — at an elegant lodge, under canvas on an Indian Ocean beach, overlooking the savannah plains of a game reserve at sunset, during a game drive or hot-air balloon safari, or even on the grounds of a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

If you can dream it, we’ll do our best to make your wildest and most romantic African wedding dreams become a reality.

Cheli & Peacock also offers a number of preplanned itineraries that are ideal for the happy couple and their guests.

The eight-day Lavish Getaway flying safari starts at Meru National Park with its diversity of animals unrivaled by any other park in East Africa, with overnights at Elsa’s Kopje boutique lodge where the individual open-fronted cottages offer sweeping views over the Meru plain. Next stop is the Masai Mara and the 7,000-acre Cottar’s Private Conservancy, which offers both tranquility and an abundance of wildlife. Your base this time is Cottars 1920′s Safari Camp with its spacious white canvas tents.

For wedding parties who want a longer trip, the Finest of Kenya & Tanzania 12-day flying safari begins with stays at Elsa’s Kopje and the new Angama Mara. Located on the rim of Africa’s Great Rift Valley, Angama offers two intimate camps with just 15 tented suites each, a private airfield and easy access to the Mara and all of its fabulous wildlife.

The trip continues across the border in the Serengeti, with accommodation at a riverside lodge called Faru Faru. Located on the renowned migratory route across the plains, Faru Faru features a “whimsical mix of contemporary organic style and the quirky practicality of a traditional botanist’s camp.” The last stop of this amazing adventure is Ngorongoro Crater, staying at a 607-hectare coffee estate called The Manor.

Imagine exchanging vows with the purr of lions in the distance, or start your life together with a traditional Masai Wedding Blessing. Cheli & Peacock takes care of all the details and paperwork so your wedding is not just perfect and exotic, but completely stress free.

Cheli & Peacock has had decades of honeymoon planning experience, so you can relax after the excitement of the wedding on a private game drive, at a secluded tropical seaside paradise with couples’ spa services, candlelight dinners, or sleeping in a romantic four-poster bed under the stars.
