St Alberts Chapel – A beautiful original barn building, with its old tin roof and exposed wooden trusses, sets the tone for your nuptials! With the option of our garden chapel, nestled under beautiful trees and your ‘I do’s’ being witnessed by the occasional Nyala, Zebra or Warthog, amongst the other game on the reserve, makes this venue magical.


The barn is a beautifully restored former milking shed, with exposed trusses and tin roof, and exquisite lighting to add a touch of class. The barn can seat 120+ guests, with enough space for dancing and the bar.
