Mabula Game Lodge – An Unparalleled Setting for Your Unforgettable Wedding

Mabula Game Lodge

Last weekend, Mabula Game Lodge was honoured to be the chosen destination for the proposal of Andre Pretorius and Lizelle Fouche, who have graciously allowed us to share their special day.

“There’s a time for everyone, if they only learn, that the twisting kaleidoscope moves us all in turn. There’s a rhyme and reason to the wild outdoors, when the heart of this star-crossed voyager, beats in time with yours…..”

“Can You Feel the Love Tonight”, The Lion King

Our guide, Tiaan Muller, was able to beautifully capture the special moment that will surely preserve the everlasting memories of the special day. The stunning moments captured on that jubilant day reminded all of us of the incomparable experience of taking your eternal vows in the vast splendour of the endless wilderness, underneath our spectacular African sun.

Cradled by the spectacular Waterberg Mountains and situated within more than 120 square kilometres of pristine, malaria-free “Big Six” wilderness, the Mabula Game Lodge was purposefully designed to make every experience unforgettable.

On your special day our vow to you is the promise to elevate the unforgettable celebration of the union of your lives by creating a day like no other.

Weddings at Mabula Game Lodge

We are proud to offer no less than five sublime venues that will be the impeccable manifestation of the wedding of your dreams. 

Whether you sense the strong calling to be at one with nature at our outdoor venues or would prefer the comforting warmth of our indoor settings, we assure you that it will be a lavishly stylish and elegant affair.

Andre fittingly decided to pop the question under the impressive fig tree of our Shaya Moya venue. The golden hour light as the sunset behind the Waterberg mountains created that intangible distinctiveness that the African bush provides!

If you do us the honour of choosing us to be a part of your special, we guarantee that our highly experienced Mabula Team will do everything in their power to make your day exceptional for you and your guests.

We would be delighted to play our humble part in creating moments that will be remembered for a lifetime.

Congratulations to Andre and Lizelle!

About us

Actually, Home Food and Travel offers a lot more than just reviews of accommodation, restaurants, spas and adventure activities.  We also visit great destinations, receive advice from interior designers and stop to smell the roses and taste the coffee.

Our team of journalists are seasoned travels and love visiting the myriad of exciting places around South Africa.  Whether it is off the beaten track or in the heart of the top attractions of the country, we’ll be there,

Home Food and Travel advice on finding the right accommodation

So what is the right accommodation?  Well more often than not, it’s your travel budget that dictates the type of accommodation that you choose. 

Expensive is not always better.  Our team at Home Food and Travel will tell you that they have camped in areas with limited ablutions and had a wonderful holiday.  They have also spent a night in a five star hotel only to be disappointed because their expectations exceeded the experience.

The reason for your travels will also affect your choice.  A business trip requires different amenities to a beach holiday. 

Our articles, reviews and experiences can certainly help you make your decision.

Restaurants with a good mix of service, food and ambiance

To my mind a great restaurant offers three things – excellent service, great food and a wonderful ambiance.  Of these, service is the most important. 

No matter that the food is delicious and the setting delightful, poor service can ruin the occasion.  However, great service combined with mediocre meal and a plane jane restaurant can still be a pleasant night out.

We’ve eaten in restaurants that are really dirty but with incredible food and couldn’t help but give a rave review.  We’ve also hardly noticed what we ate because the setting was just amazing.

However, the best restaurants come with the best of service, food and ambiance.

Spas are the ultimate relaxation aid

How do you know when you have had a great spa experience?  The answer, of course, is when you doze off on the treatment table. 

Well that’s our theory anyway.  It also doesn’t take a grand location with enormous facilities for a spa to be really good

A small, personal spa that is owner run can result in the best massage you have ever experienced.  However, the grand spas in five star hotels offer unsurpassed facilities in an environment that just makes the stress in your shoulders and neck melt away before you even finish checking in.


You don’t have to be an adrenaline junky to enjoy an exciting experience.  In fact, what are commonly termed adventure activities usually have incredibly high safety standards and unblemished safety records.

Ziplining, bungy jumping and shark cage diving are all very safe.  It’s just that our mind tells us we are craaazzzzyyyy to be doing this.

On the road to great places of accommodation, restaurants, spas and adventure activities

If you’re driving, be safe and make use of all the wonderful farm stalls that populate South Africa’s open roads.

If you overhear somebody asking a lot of questions or see someone taking photos of empty bedrooms chances are it’s one of our Home Food and Travel team members.

We’re out looking or those great places of accommodation, restaurants, spas and adventure activities.

See you on the road!
