Absolutely Magical Venue
The South Africa House is an absolutely incredible venue for any type of event. We recently held our wedding ceremony and reception there and we were so impressed. The House, ceremony location, and everything in between provided an absolutely magical setting for our special day and Elmari and Anira were so welcoming, accommodating, and responsive throughout the entire experience. Wainwright is incredibly lucky to have such an amazing venue like this. I would recommend the South Africa House to absolutely everyone.Sent on 24/07/2021

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.Sent on 12/02/2018

The perfect wedding venue
The South Africa Guest Lodge provided the perfect space for our wedding. The lodge itself is breathtaking, and the ceremony spot is a hidden gem. Without seeing it, a person would not think such an incredible space exists in Wainwright. The lodge managers are also the friendliest and easiest people to deal with, and were great hosts to accommodate our needs. We highly recommend this venue for any prospective newlywedsSent on 30/08/2021
