Safari Weddings

WEDDING PLANNING AND EVENT DESIGN

Safari weddings.

The ultimate experience of Africa.

A safari wedding is the quintessential way to capture the essence and beauty of the African bush whilst celebrating the most important day of your life. From conceptualisation to the moment when you say your “I do’s”, Oh Happy Day has the complete know-how to plan the perfect safari wedding by being your organiser on the ground (where it counts).

We have an extensive knowledge about the African bush and we specialise in both large scale wedding celebrations and small, intimate destination elopements. We are affiliated with a number of luxury game lodges within KwaZulu-Natal and South Africa to cater for your every need. Planning a safari wedding requires in-depth, logistical planning, and Oh Happy Day is proud to possess an extensive vendor library of suppliers who can assist in making your Safari Wedding Dreams come true.

We are proud to be affiliated with Khaki Fever Safaris, who are our honeymoon and holiday safari specialists – the perfect holiday add-on at the end of a destination wedding and the most incredible way to see Africa.

Your Africa awaits

At their very core, Khaki Fever believes in creating exceptional African adventures that are only yours. They are operators “on the ground”, which means that they live Africa, and don’t simply sell it from afar. They offer a bespoke service, focusing heavily on their clients’ individual needs, and believe that their first-hand experience, deep passion for the African continent, and knowledge of African travel, gives them the upper hand when planning your unforgettable adventure.

Whether it’s a traditional “Big 5” safari in South Africa, an adventurous walking or canoe trail in Botswana, island-hopping and diving in Mozambique, or a luxurious lodge experience in Zimbabwe, they will craft your dream African adventure seamlessly, from start to finish.

Thanks to the Khaki Fever team’s in-depth knowledge of Africa, their relationships within the travel industry, and their high standards for service and authentic African experiences, we have mastered the planning and facilitation of great African adventures, so that you don’t have to. And what’s better? They don’t charge you anything extra for doing it!

@zanna_farah and @sebmfarah 's lush floral wedding was such a delightful way to end 2018.

Our team worked this one with hearts full of joy and the end result is something they can be proud of. Zanna & Seb, thank you for this honour. #fallingforfarah

  • This couple.....that light.....and this setting...🍉

Doesn't this shot make you pretty damn proud of all that our @cityofdurban has to offer? Durbs has some amazing wedding venues and creative shoot options for couples wanting something a bit closer to home...all it takes is someone in the know to point them out (*ahem....that's us).
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Chris & @tisfortarryn got married on a rooftop in the centre of Durbs and hosted an awesome reception at a local wedding venue close by. Their creative shoot was captured by our insanely talented friend @kellydanielsphotography was shot all around the city. Cool or what?
  • Why, hello there 2019!

Whilst we've been active here on IG, today is our 1st official day back at work and we couldn't be more excited to get cracking on all-things wedding.

Please be patient with us whilst we sort through our backlog of emails - there are MANY and we want to give each of them the attention they deserve. Love, your OHD team 🍉
