My husband and I love animals so we decided to have a bush wedding in Kenya. We evaluated over 10 popular recommended tour operators and their quotations, and decided to choose Gamewatchers. Not only do they offer a fantastic balance of quality and value - their package included a bush dinner, sundowners, and guided walks, which usually cost extra - but they also have amazing accommodation in a great location, and they have won awards to prove it.
The wedding ceremony was held under a tree at the top of a hill, with a view over the incredible landscape. We were escorted to the ceremony by the Maasai locals, who gave us traditional cloths, a colourful necklace and even Maasai names after we had exchanged our vows. This was a real privilege and honour.
The wedding arrangement was also fantastic. The beautiful ceremony was followed by a sundowner reception and the most amazing bush dinner for my entire group of friends and family. We loved the camp location in particular as it felt very intimate and private - you hardly see any other tourists!
Mohanjeet and Sandeep, the organisers, were so helpful in planning our trip and our wedding itinerary, and it was not a small task as they had to cater for a total of 27 people. They did an excellent job with all of the logistics, and everyone - and I really mean everyone - was super friendly and helpful.
