Engagement at Silvan Safari Lodge

A magical engagement at Silvan Safari Lodge in the heart of the Sabi Sand Game Reserve

When we were approached by one of our guests to help him book and plan a romantic proposal in the heart of the African bushveld, we jumped at the opportunity to make it a memorable and magical experience neither of them will forget. With the help of the wonderful team at Silvan Safari Lodge in the renowned Sabi Sand Private Game Reserve, we put together an unforgettable safari engagement experience in one of the most magnificent locations in South Africa.

When we started the proposal planning process, we knew we had to incorporate four very important components to make this engagement extra special – an incredible safari, a beautiful African sunset, a stunning setting, and of course, the element of surprise!

First, we arranged for Warrick and Jess to go out on an exciting evening safari in the magnificent Sabi Sand Game Reserve in search of Africa’s Big 5. Half-way through their safari, we had a private safari vehicle pick them up and whisk them away to a stunning secret sundowner destination overlooking the unspoiled African wilderness, which we beautifully decorated with lanterns to create the perfect romantic setting for a magical proposal moment. Just as Jess was about to admire the spectacular sunset over the savannah, Warrick got down on one knee and asked her that all-important question – Will you marry me?’


After revelling in the moment and soaking up every glorious second of their magical African safari engagement, Warrick and Jess were treated to a specially prepared private dinner on the deck of their luxury suite at the Silvan Safari Lodge under the star-studded African night sky to further celebrate this memorable occasion.

We wish Warrick and, his now fiancé, Jess nothing but the best and a lifetime filled with love, happiness, adventure and many more bucket-list worthy safari experiences! We are beyond elated and honoured that they chose us to be a part of this momentous occasion and plan an unforgettable safari engagement they’ll cherish for many years to come!
