Let us make your wedding the special day it should be.

Mashovhela Bush Lodge, with its romantic and tranquil atmosphere makes it an ideal venue for small, intimate weddings. Our Drumbeat Restaurant and our Venda staff will give a subtle African feel to proceedings, whilst our chef will provide you with cuisine that will complement the importance and the joyous day.

The restaurant, terrace, boma and large gardens as well as the bush make us very flexible in positioning “chapels” and receptions. Get married at our Baobab Tree or at our outside thatched wedding ‘’chapel’’ with the sound of the bush that surrounds you. Our fully licensed bar has a wide range of fine South African Beverages to choose from.

Situated on a nature reserve, with waterfalls, streams and indigenous forests and nestled into the scenic Soutpansberg Mountains allows for an abundance of photographic opportunities for those special photographs.

Let our efficient and accommodating staff help you plan and recommend ideas that will make the day extra special and one that you and your guests will remember forever.

We can cater for up to 60 guests in our Drumbeat restaurant and for 120 guests when we erect a spider tent on the lawn in front of the lodge.
