In the heart of the Kenyan Bush there are plenty of places to get married and toast the happy couple, but here are just some of our favourites:
Lone Tree Hill
With stunning savannah views, it’s a beautiful location to say 'I do’ covered by large canopied trees.
Expect panoramic views of the conservancy and incredible sunsets; it’s a special spot for the ceremony, sundowners or bush dinners.
This location is perfect for smaller weddings, receptions or private dinners. The infinity pool extends the view during the day and in the evening is lit up with candles and lamps creating a romantic atmosphere.
From this spectacular elevated space with views out into the gorge, watch the sun set while the firepit provides the perfect romantic atmosphere.
This area offers privacy and is a small but beautiful area. It’s also the perfect spot to continue the celebrations with a reception or bush dinners.
From dancers to dinners here are just a few ideas of how you can get the party started!
For a traditional celebration the Maasai dancers perform their traditional song and dance, which involves the men jumping in the centre of a circle formed by other Maasai warriors. This is traditionally performed to try and impress the young women with their athleticism!
A bush dinner is the perfect setting for couples looking for an intimate romantic and is an ideal setting for smaller groups.
Bush Game Drives
Spend your first moments as a married couple amongst the wild animals roaming the Kenyan plains.

Here are some extras to consider (for an additional charge)
Maasai Blessings: The bride and groom dress in traditional ceremonial beaded necklaces and are met by a group of dancing warriors and ladies and led to the Maasai Elder. The blessing is open air, colourful and joyful.
Civil Ceremonies: It’s necessary to comply with the Kenyan Government requirements to hold a legal wedding in Kenya. We can put you in touch with a local partner, Cheli & Peacock who can assist you with all the legalities and coordinating a registrar for your big day!
Wedding Cake: If you would like a special custom-designed cake for your big day, we can order a tailor-made one from a talented pastry chef in Nairobi.
Photography: Don't miss any of those special moments! Photographers are available in Nairobi but please ask us for costs associated with flying them to the ceremony and hosting them overnight.
Flowers: Additional flower arrangements for the bridesmaids and groomsmen.
Spa Treatments: Enjoy our special 'Couples Experience' or a relaxing massage in the Nasaro Spa with Africology products whilst taking in your stunning surroundings.
Wedding planner: Whether you'd like a small simple ceremony or a large three day event with friends and family, Cheli & Peacock would be delighted to organise a beautiful
wedding for you.
Our chefs have developed numerous pan-African dishes influenced by a variety of cultures, flavours and spices. Whether dining under the African sky in the open bush, on a deck or in the dining tent, our menus and meals promise to be exciting, social and inspirational.
From bush BBQs to champagne picnics to sundowners, our team will treat you to a wide selection of African and international menus. All our breads and pastries are baked daily. We can cater for those with special dietary needs so just let us know in advance and we’ll do our best to have exactly what you need.
Mahali Mzuri is an amazing setting for your bachelor or bachelorette party, otherwise known as stag and hen parties. Our only piece of advice? Don’t plan these parties the night before the big day! In addition to parties in the evening, we’ve also organised some daytime activities.
Here are just a couple of ideas:
An indulgent spa morning in our Nasaro Spa treatment tent followed by an relaxing afternoon by the pool with plenty of cocktails, canapés and the odd sip (or two!) of something fizzy! (Additional charges will apply for spa treatments).
We can set-up a campfire for some bonding time, out in the bush following a game drive.
