Enjoy Your Special Day in one of many Beautiful Destinations

An authentic and distinguished destination to tie the knot, Africa’s dramatic landscape is the perfect backdrop to compliment the whispering of heartfelt vows.

Weddings in the African plains, like the Maasai Mara National Reserve, provide couples with that wow factor, with views of seemingly endless green grassland stretching out away from the outdoor ceremony, punctured by the occasional giraffe or zebra on the horizon. Feel the excitement as the sun silently sets, with tented accommodation, big enough for even the most popular newly weds, providing a sophisticated atmosphere to continue the celebrations.  

For those in search of a more family-orientated, intimate affair, then consider a ceremony on the beaches of your own private island. Your feet sink smoothly into the white sands as you walk down the aisle, and the sounds of the shallow blue Indian Ocean breaking softly on the banks, providing the perfect orchestral accompaniment. 

True wedding day happiness is perhaps the knowledge that your big day will run smoothly; when choosing to host your special day in one of Africa’s cosmopolitan cities, you can guarantee there will be no hiccups. From luxury hotel rooms to high-quality catering facilities, saying your ‘I dos’ in one of Africa’s bustling cities is stress-free, and, with such an infectious ambiance, will be an experience equally enjoyed by your chosen guests. 

Whatever your preference, the Somak team have the knowledge to make your African wedding a day you’ll always cherish.
