WEDDING SAFARIS IN RWANDA

Are You Planning A Wedding Safari In Rwanda? Scroll Down For Details..

The desire for a unique, one-of-a-kind wedding is why many adventurous couples consider Africa for a combined nuptial ceremony and honeymoon safari. While Kenya, Tanzania, Zanzibar and South Africa are the most common wedding destinations, Rwanda appeals to brides and grooms who want the most extraordinary nuptial celebrations with all the romance of an exotic and unique safari setting. Even for those who travel to Africa on more classic wildlife safari holidays, Rwanda promises an inimitable escape in the bush in a place that few venture to. Because it offers a unique experience in both scenery and wildlife, we are confident you will consider Rwanda an exceptional location for your exchange of vows and the first chapter in your married life.

The best part of planning your wedding in Rwanda is that you can choose from varied sites, each with its own distinct ambience. Perhaps you desire a matrimonial ceremony that reflects the sense of exploration and adventure associated with the mighty Nile and Congo rivers, or maybe one filled with a sense of intimacy and tranquility, near the Virunga forests of Rwanda’s mountain gorillas. If you dream of a beach ceremony, Lake Kivu, with its long stretches of golden sand, lapping blue water, and romantic sunsets, is the place to begin your life together.

Partnering with AfricanMecca Safaris will give you the peace of mind and confidence you need to relax and enjoy your joyous destination wedding and safari vacation in Rwanda, together with friends and family. Your AfricanMecca wedding planner will inquire about your personal taste and what you envision as an ideal ceremony. We then recommend specialty accommodations in Rwanda that host matrimonial events, from small, private settings nestled in dense green forests to lakeside accommodations that are perfect for larger groups.

We can organize beautiful weddings, from simple, intimate ceremonies with a champagne celebration at the end of a gorilla trek, to a three-day event with many guests on the shores of Lake Kivu. Volcanoes National Park and Nyungwe National Park are recommended for couples who love to be immersed in primate nature, as both destinations offer settings in the foothills of the forest-covered Virunga and Bigugu Mountains. The charming village of Kinigi, near Volcanoes National Park, home of mountain gorilla treks, offers a site with views of a colonial cottage, while the coffee farms and chimpanzee forests of Nyungwe National Park offer an exotic backdrop for exchanging vows and expressions of love.

If vast savannah plains are your idea of a heavenly wedding travel location, we recommend our preferred site at Akagera National Park, Rwanda’s premier destination for classic wildlife safari experiences. For a metropolitan nuptial ceremony, we recommend the city of Kigali.

Once you have chosen the setting for your wedding, our planner will discuss your options for a honeymoon that begins only minutes after you say “I do.” Gorilla trekking, birding, hiking, village tours, primate safaris, watersports, and countless other activities can easily be added to your wedding arrangements. Your pampered honeymoon safari package for Rwanda can also include supplemental services like spa treatments, and we will always provide information about the finest places to sample gastronomical delights, arts and culture, and even delicious cocktails to be sipped while snuggling under a star-filled sky.

Planning an exotic trip for a wedding ceremony can be both exciting and intimidating, and the remoteness of Rwanda in Central-East Africa can add a bit more anxiety for those trying to plan their special day alone. We handle all of the administrative details to ease your stress. Some general guidelines should be considered, though. Nuptial ceremonies at Volcanoes, Nyungwe, and Akagera national parks are limited to wedding groups of 20 or fewer guests. Those expecting a larger attendance at the ceremony should consider a beach ceremony at Lake Kivu or a city ceremony in Kigali. The accommodations are generally considered removed from larger crowds, but we may recommend a higher-priced accommodation to ensure your privacy if you desire the utmost intimacy.

We also provide expert guidance on the legal requirements for getting married in Rwanda and manage all the paperwork and other arrangements. Our professional wedding planner keeps you advised on the progress and ensures that your every need is met before, during, and after the ceremony. Brides and grooms are consistently surprised by the level of personalized service provided by AfricanMecca Safaris, as we foresee any and all details to ensure that your wedding day will be one of utter perfection.

As with every other part of the world, the climate and weather patterns in Rwanda (best time to travel) will have a significant influence on your dream wedding and bush tour activities. If you’re hoping for little to no chance of rain, we recommend booking your event in the long dry season, which runs from June to September. In addition to offering temperate weather for outdoor weddings, this season also simplifies wildlife experiences since the animals congregate around a few watering holes. The end of the rainy seasons may be preferred by some couples, though, especially those who want the landscape covered in the deepest greens and dotted with hints of colorful wildflowers. With AfricanMecca Safaris as your personal wedding planner, you need only visualize the ideal nuptial experience and we will exceed your every expectation.
