    We had a fantastic wedding at the Safari Lodge and couldn’t have wished for anything more. Joanne was brilliant and so helpful and supportive in the lead up to the wedding, on the day and the day after, and I can honestly say that every single member of staff that worked with us over our event was brilliant and helpful. Thank you to them all. I would highly recommend the team and location to others for their future events. Thank you so much.

    We thought that Joanne Hampton was brilliant in the lead up to our wedding… she was willing to meet up with us frequently and responded to all of our email enquiries really quickly. On the day, everything was perfect and just how we wanted it. All of the staff at the Safari Lodge were attentive and helpful. We were also very grateful to them all for packing everything away for us to collect the next day… they even saved us two of our cupcakes! I really can’t thank them all enough!

    Everything from the staff to the food/drink was such a high standard, staff could not do enough for us, guests at the wedding had nothing but praise about the event, top marks to Jo who ran everything from first contact till the next day when we collected our personal items.
