After having been quiet for so long I again need advice from anyone that can help
My SO & I visited KNP this weekend to look around & plan some finer detail regarding our upcoming wedding in Skukuza this December....
The little church has a wonderful atmosphere, the viewing point for the sundowners is breathtaking.
I'm also getting very good advice & help from someone that stays in Skukuza.
Except for the flowers, he will be doing almost all the coordinating, & liaising with Sanparks on my behalf.
The plan is still as follows: Church ceremony @ 4.00 pm in the staff village church.
After that the 2x 20-seater game drive vehicles will be taking the guests to the bush venue/koppie for sundowners, then back to the camp for supper.
Now this is where the problem comes in
I originally booked the boma, but a boma is just a boma, and although it will have the bush theme it looks a little run down, with weeds all over and then again it might rain....
The main restaurant is willing to block off a section for the reception, but then we might just as well have it in any restaurant in Johannesburg then....
The Selati train restaurant will have a totally different theme - we will be seated on the far side of the platform, also sectioned off from the rest of the restaurant.
At least we wont get wet if it rains.... I'm unfortunately very fussy, & IMO the ladies didn't look as neat as I would have liked
I also understand that the contract for the current group expires at the end of the year.
What if it isn't renewed & 2 weeks before they leave, they don't care about the level of service & quality anymore.
Maybe you can just call it a case of bad nerves
Because the Selati was not part of the original plan, we did not get to go for supper there on Saturday night, so we have no idea about the food, service, lighting, insects, etc.
I did find some info on the "Skukuza restaurant upgrade thread", but I would love to hear from anyone with advice regarding the above arrangements or a recent experience at the Selati.
Many many thanx
