The Bot River region in the Overberg of South Africa’s Western Cape is a hidden gem quite unlike any other. Tucked away along the lush green valleys that span the route from Grabouw toward the bustling little town of Caledon, this spellbinding area is one of the lesser-known wedding destinations throughout the country. However, those in the know have had an eye on it for a while, and have pegged it as a region to watch. As such, if you want to stay ahead of the curve, hosting your nuptial celebrations at a venue in Bot River is the best way to do so.
Prince Albert in the Western Cape of South Africa is one of those little small towns that seem to be imbued with a certain kind of hinterland magic. Flanked by lush vineyards and silvery olive groves, this tiny hamlet is home to talented artisans that range from cheesemakers and chefs to painters, writers, and thespians. One visit will keep you coming back for more, as the diminutive town at the foot of the majestic Swartberg Pass continues to draw you in with its singular mystique.
Tanzania is a country of magic and adventure. One of the foremost safari destinations throughout the African continent, this is where you come if you want to see wildebeest stampede the plains, hippos traverse muddy waterways and chimpanzees swinging their way from one treetop to the next. It’s a place of boat safaris and pre-dawn game drives. But also of sandy beaches, sleepy coastal villages and tranquil islands. Not to mention Mt Kilimanjaro and the red-cloaked Maasai warriors. As such, it makes sense that couples from all around the globe flock here to tie the knot.
Here are a few of our favourite outdoor wedding destinations in Tanzania:
Summer in sunny South Africa is one of the best times to head outdoors with family and friends, which is why many SA families opt to host their annual Christmas dinners outside. An al fresco feast is a great way to enjoy the lovely weather and creates a laid-back atmosphere that can be enjoyed by kids and adults alike. However, if you choose to do so, there are a few things you should have in place to ensure that everything goes off without a hitch.
Cape Town, April 2014: For the eighth year in a row, Tentickle Stretch Tents will be pitching their unique tents at AfrikaBurn, one of South Africa’s largest festivals and the largest ‘burn’ outside of the United States of America.
AfrikaBurns draws its inspiration from the famous Burning Man festival held annually in the Nevada Desert, USA. AfrikaBurn follows the same guiding principles: Radical Inclusion, Decommodification, Radical Self-reliance, Radical Self-expression, Communal Effort, Civic Responsibility, Leaving No Trace, Immediacy and Gifting. All of these principles add up to a unique festival where nothing can be bought or sold, only traded or gifted and afterwards the desert returns to normal, with no trace of the festival.
RAMfest has become a South African institution. Already in its 8th year, RAMfest is getting bigger and better every year. But you know that – chances are that you were there this year. What you probably didn’t know is that Tentickle Stretch Tents were behind the great stage tents that Trivium, Killswitch Engage and Biffy Clyro were playing under.
The stage tents that were used at RAMfest are some of the most technical tents that are offered by Tentickle. As you can imagine, these tents not only have to keep the bands and DJ’s cool through the day and their equipment dry in the case of rain, but they also need to be fire retardant to keep them from catching fire from the awesome flame throwers.
