Feel free to choose any of our accommodation establishments for your special day. You have more than 20 different options but let us give you a few useful tips.
You have the choice between two of our magnificent Kalahari lodges – Kalahari Anib Lodge and Kalahari Farmhouse. Although close in proximity, they have a completely different charm, yet are equally infused with Kalahari magic.
Kalahari Anib Lodge provides splendid desert scenery with its copper sand dunes and 4-legged guests such as eland, springbok and more.
Kalahari Farmhouse offers enchanted garden scenery on sprawling green lawns underneath lush tree canopies. For a moment, you might forget you're in the desert.
Dunes. Sunset. Wedding photos! For a big wedding party, Namib Desert Lodge at the foot of fossilised dunes is the perfect pick. Your guests can relax pool-side at our down-to-earth, family-friendly, homey lodge.
Expect pure elegance at The Desert Grace. Soft shades of love are everywhere you look – from the interior of the lodge to the sunset canvas outside.
An authentic celebration at Canyon Village awaits amongst otherworldly landscapes. The Fish River Canyon is a beautiful feature for gorgeous wedding photos.
We believe Cloud 9 is definitely a place on earth!
"At our first visit to Kalahari Anib we knew immediately that this little piece of heaven on earth would be a special place for our wedding. Each and every staff member at Gondwana Collection, from events to reception to our amazing coordinator, could not have helped make the planning process more easier than they did. They were equally excited about our special day as we were and it showed in every telephone call, email and drink served on the night. We decided to make a weekend out of the wedding and invited our guests to spend the Friday afternoon with us, and this allowed our guests to interact more, something you don't always think about when planning a wedding.
The day of the wedding our coordinator helped finalize everything, the staff made sure our guests were well taken care of and Anib being the beautiful lodge it is, looked better than we could have ever imagined.
Our ceremony took place on the grass lawn with a very bohemian styled setting, providing a relaxed and natural feel.
After our ceremony we had our pick of beautiful areas where the guests could take photos but the bridal party decided to go for a short joy ride in the sightseeing vehicles to go capture the serene scenes of the lodge.
Our photographer and videographer could not stop capturing all the beautiful scenery and of course our happy faces. We got to see an unbelievable Kalahari sunset together as husband and wife and we even got some beautiful photos underneath the full moon. The red sand dunes in Namibia are simply a must see.
For our reception we chose to go for a very natural elegant style to fit in with the beautiful light and atmosphere in the dining area. We did not have to do a lot with regards to décor to help make the place feel elegant and wedding ready.
We opted for something different and decided to place our dance floor outside on the deck area underneath the stars, which made our first dance feel magical.
Our buffet provided by Anib was literally the talk of the night and even the bride and groom got a chance to experience the tasty food.
We received so many compliments on the venue, the food and the team. Many of our guests have said that we could not have chosen a more special place to start our journey."
