A Magical African Bush Experience!

Excitement levels escalated in the SA Weddings office after receiving an invitation to experience the bush in pure luxury – surely luxury is the only way to experience the bush, right?! Set on a spectacular piece of land adjacent to Shamwari Game Reserve in the Eastern Cape lays the beautiful 1940’s character-filled farmhouse, Founders Lodge. Perfect for intimate weddings or a lavish bush honeymoon, Founders Lodge offers maximum comfort and privacy for quality rest, relaxation and of course, romance.


To maintain an intimate and personal character, there are only six private suites with scenic surrounds. All suites feature a private veranda, offering breathtaking views across the cliffs, valleys and sprawling natural bushveld.

Founders Lodge aspires to offer experiences that will create a lifetime of memories. Big 5 game drives, exquisite birdlife and incredible sunsets are only a few of the reasons to visit this gem. Over dinner, guests can expect to have their tastebuds tantalised with local cuisine, which is usually served outside overlooking the 400 hectares of pristine land, once private residence to Adrian Gardiner, founder and visionary of Shamwari Game Reserve.

So, if it’s luxury, romance and the African bush you’re after, Founders Lodge is exactly what you’re looking for.
The romance of the African bush is incomparable to anything on earth and we cannot imagine a more serene place to say your I Do’s!
