5 Best Safari Wedding Hotels in East Africa

Going on safari has become at the very least, a yearly adventure for us!  There is something seriously addicting about East Africa.  The sunrises, sunsets, hot days, cool mornings/nights, expansive landscape, and amazing hospitality.  Then you add in the adventurous fact that the most magnificent creatures roam wild nearby and you get the opportunity to witness them in their natural habitat!  As a result, East Africa becomes the very best location for safari wedding hotels and today we would like to share with you our favorites!

Mahali Mzuri Weddings:

Last time we shared with you countless reasons why you should have a safari adventure wedding, best time to marry, and what to expect.  Beginning our list today is a boutique hotel that is truly one that also tops our list!  And a place that sits in the middle of an incredible rich game conservatory.  Imagine a place that your exclusive wedding group of 24 people can “take over” and feel like VIP’s the entire time!  Allow us to introduce you to Mahali Mzuri!

Mahali Mzuri takes glamping to a whole new level!  No joke folks, each tent is spacious and equipped with king beds, local design, fridge, wifi (during 6am-9pm, most days we found).  Plus there is a glamorous bathroom complete with shower big enough for 2, soaking tub with a stunning view!  …oh and we cannot forget the beautiful deck and game reserve scenery!

Included in the cost of your stay includes all food and drinks (hello high end all-inclusive!).  Each morning you begin your day with a sunrise game drive and then onto a delicious breakfast buffet with made to order items too.   The afternoon can easily be spent drinking and enjoying the elephant watering hole view, at the pool or spa.  Then it’s on to a delectable 3 course lunch!  Around 4:30pm you find your way to the safari trucks again for your evening game drive.  Dinner often left us speechless and nothing beat ending the day in front of the fire pit and a glass of champagne in hand!

The service you receive at Mahali Mzuri from arrival to departure makes this location one of the best safari wedding hotels in East Africa!  Our Adventure Wedding planning team would love to custom craft a safari wedding for you here, contact us for more information!
