Planning a wedding at the Mbalageti Serengeti Lodge
Bookings for weddings should be made as early as possible.
We regret that we cannot accept reservations between April/ June / July and August and Dec 20th – 31st
In order that a legal ceremony be carried out by a Tanzanian registrar, the following documents must be sent to us (faxed or as email attachments) at least a month before the wedding.
Copies of birth certificate of the bride and groom. Copies of passports for bride and groom. Details of profession of bride, groom and parents from both
sides. Documents of eligibility from their local parish (should
one of them be a divorcee a copy of the DECREE ABSOLUTE is required).
In order to comply with official requirements, a copy of a letter requesting his/her presence at the event must be received by the registrar three working days before the wedding ceremony. This must include the signatures of both the bride and groom. We therefore require all couples to arrive in the lodge a minimum of three days before the ceremony.
