WEDDING VENUES IN THE HEART OF AFRICA AT MSINSI RESORTS AND GAME RESERVES
Invite family and friends to celebrate the beautiful future of your married life in the accessible heart of Africa’s majestic splendour.
Our event venues at Msinsi Resorts and Game Reserves have all been a great success for weddings in search of a spectacular natural bushveld setting. Choose between these options - accommodation can also be booked for the bridal party and your guests at all reserves, together with extra activities such as game-drives and fishing:
Thatched Gazebo, Bon Accorde Resort: With a view to sigh for, this tranquil venue is enough to persuade couples to renew their vows and makes a wonderful place to mark the beginning of married life. Accommodates 150 guests with chairs only and 100 guests using both tables and chairs.
Gazebo, Nagle Dam and Game Reserve: This lovely space beside the dam is the choice of music stars and those who love the setting’s stunning natural space. Choose this if you’d like a truly exclusive ceremony for a handful of guests. Then move on to the Nagle Conference Centre to accommodate a few more at your reception or after-party or choose our marquee for a larger party.

Just 40km from the bustling heart of Durban, you can tackle world-renowned rock climbs in a dramatically beautiful bushveld reserve at Shongweni Dam and Game Reserve – thanks to the sandstone cliffs through which the river has scored its path for many millions of years.
As well as excellent walls to scale, wind and weather have also helped erode the cliffs to create some of the finest and most challenging overhangs.
Two of the best have been named The Wave Cave and The Rasta Cave. According to the different international systems, they’ve been rated in the 30s (SA); 5.13 (USA); and 8 (France).
Here’s what climber Roger Nattrass had to say when he first tackled the rock climbs at Shongweni Dam and Game Reserve:
- “The most awe-inspiring piece of rock in KwaZulu-Natal.”
- “This is a rock for the year 2000 and beyond!”
- “Super steep and immaculately clean rock.”
You can also arrange dam abseiling, rock climbing, river kayaking and bushcraft outings for families, corporate and learners of all levels through our business partners Spirit of Adventure and Scott’s Teambuilding.
