If you are looking for something very different and unique for your wedding, then consider a traditional Maasai marriage ceremony. You can still have the normal white wedding and incorporate a Maasai wedding ceremony in your honeymoon at the Masai Mara game reserve. Safariline Africa can arrange for a wedding or honeymoon package that will see you enjoy a day with the Maasai peolpe of Kenya and make your wedding a memorable one.

The ceremony involves traditional regalis, traditional dancers and their traditional food. The bride can wear a lovely white or tan bride's outfit made with Maasai beading on it and complete the look with the beaded marriage necklace and khanga. Joyful singing, chanting and dancing accompany the traditional union, as the guests join in. The groom will then be expected to prove himself as a worthy warrior and husband by participating in the jumping competition with other young maasai warriors. The traditional ceremony, though a public celebration does not have any religious connotations and is not legally recognized under Kenyan law.

As part of its Maasai wedding package, Safariline Africa provides accommodations at the spectacular Ngerende Island lodge in the scenic reserve, as well as transportation for the guests to and from the village for the ceremony.The lodge is situated on the Olchoro – Oirogua Conservation Ranch which borders the Masai Mara Game Reserve, ensuring superb game viewing. Ngerende has been stylishly designed to provide the ideal safari experience where comfort, luxury and outstanding personal service combine naturally with the beautiful wilderness of the Masai Mara.

The lodge offers exclusive accommodation in the seven contemporary designed suites. All seven suites offer stunning views of the Mara River. Whilst in the main building, the dining room extends onto the verandah overlooking the Mara River and the nearby hippo pod. The lodge has an infinity swimming pool overlooking one of the largest Hippo Pods in the Northern Mara and a spa offering therapeutic treatments.The honeymoon suite which is isolated from the main lodge to provide extra privacy, having its own private plunge pool and Jacuzzi is the perfect accommodation for this kind of safari. After the ceremony the honeymoon safari continues within the Maasai Mara itself or throughout Kenya.
