Ever thought of getting married in Africa? Imagine standing by the majestic Victoria Falls, and saying your marriage vows with the waterfall cascading behind you while the African sun is warming your skin. Tongabezi Lodge, a unique family-run luxury lodge located on the banks of the Zambezi River, can make that dream a reality! It also organizes unique and magical Livingstone Island weddings and vows renewals.
So how does your Victoria Falls wedding day with Tongabezi unfold?
Your wedding day will begin with a registry ceremony at the Livingstone Town Council offices, followed by a unique blessing from a local Zambian pastor.
Following the registry ceremony Tongabezi boats transfer you to Livingstone Island through the powerful channels of the Zambezi River. What makes this tiny island in the middle of the grand waterfall special is that it can only be reached when the Zambezi River runs at low water levels, and even then, no more than 16 guests are allowed on the island at once. The boat trip to the island through the fierce Zambezi waters is a breathtaking journey in itself.
Tying the knot, renewing your vows or commemorating an anniversary in the middle of the largest waterfall in the world will not be as complex an occasion as it may sound. Tongabezi will take care of all arrangements including the legalities required by the registry office. The team will plan the order of service if you require, a priest for the blessing, flowers, cakes, guest gifts, the choir, professional photographer as well as other local entertainment, such as local dancers, to make your special day extraordinary.
Tongabezi offers Livingstone Island wedding packages with or without a stay in a Tongabezi House. The package with accommodation includes a 4-night stay in the luxurious Tongabezi lodge to top off your African wedding experience. The lodge also offers a Livingstone Island vows renewal package that includes a blessing and an afternoon visit to the stunning Livingstone Island.
