    Amazing venue!

    The Andersons went above and beyond to make our wedding perfect! They were so well organized, prompt and friendly to deal with, and planted the most beautiful flowers for us.

    A Dream Come True Venue

    The South Africa House Guest Lodge was the most incredible venue for our wedding. They were every accommodating and did everything possible to make our dreams come true. The venue far exceeded our expectations from the breath taking tree covered ceremony area to the exquisite bar and ample space cocktail hour. We could not have asked for anything more. This is all not even to mention the Lodge itself! The girls and I got ready in the Lodge and it was a perfect place for all of us to get ready together with tons of space to move. There is tons of counter space, mirrors, and lighting that make it the best space to get ready. The whole wedding party was also able to stay at the Lodge the night of the wedding which was so much fun. We highly recommend the South Africa House Guest Lodge for a wedding venue and accommodations for the wedding party! Absolutely wonderful.

    Wedding weekend

    It was a perfect house for our weekend wedding. We even had dinner For 30 in the living room, it fit very well. The house was very clean and even though it is in the city limits it feels like you’re in the country side. Very private, treed lot.
