The magnificent deck which overlooks the Palala River, is where you can exchange your wedding vows amongst your closest friends and family. Alternatively, for a remote bush setting, chairs are set up under some African Acacia trees for the wedding party, who are often visited by curious 4 legged guests eager to be part of the celebration.

As every wedding is such a personal experience we will liaise closely with you to meet your individual needs and requirements. We are able to host wedding receptions for up to 50 guests, and can arrange and provide all ingredients necessary for an exceptional and memorable wedding day. With regards to your additional guests, over and above the 14 that can be accommodated at Jembisa Lodge, there are 3 rustic self-catering camps within the Palala River Reserve. In total the Palala River Cottages can accommodate a total of 22 extra guests. Thereafter there are various B&B’s in the Vaalwater area for the balance of your guests.

Jebisa Lodge is built from local stone and thatch with large, spacious rooms decorated with natural materials in an Afro-colonial style. Having been a family home in the past, Jembisa Lodge also benefits from some extras not usually found at safari lodges; these include a library, reading room, children’s games room and a floodlit tennis court. “Our home” ….now “your home”, is the perfect venue for a small intimate wedding offering 5 star service and accommodation for up to 14 people. There are 5 luxury en-suite bedrooms, 3 with private balconies and a 4 sleeper bunk room, ideal for the little wedding people! All bathrooms have a shower and a bath. Cots are available for infants.

It was absolutely perfect!!! Needless to say, Jembisa is so beautiful! We enjoyed every split second and we really didn’t want to leave. Ané, Jane, Steven, Marius and all the staff at Jembisa are amazing. They really made us feel at home. It felt like nothing was an effort for them and they seemed to enjoy it as much as we did. David’s food was absolutely delicious and we loved the table decorations!

The wedding itself was everything we ever wanted and more. We were so relaxed knowing that everything was in place and well organised.
