About

Our Aim


At Makiti our main aim is to be involved as much as possible, in order to relieve you of the stress normally related with organizing your special day. By being in control of everything we can guarantee success. Peace of mind is priceless. You will have a final arrangement meeting with our Events Planner who will discuss every little detail of your wedding and will use her experience to your advantage. Your personal Function Coordinator will ensure that all is done as planned and will be at your side until the end of your function. Our Bar managers will make sure that the bar is operated as per your instructions.

Our Aim

Since 1996...

Nestled in the secluded Kromdraai valley, built on a 50 hectare estate, lies our beautiful and exclusive venue in one of South Africa’s well known world heritage sites. The river meanders under big old trees and majestic cliffs that form the backdrop of our beautifully landscaped gardens. Makiti’s first venue was the Ballroom venue which was built in 1996, followed by the Sunset Venue, which was built in 2003 and our latest addition to our exclusive venues is the Ennyani venue which was built in 2010.

OUR PROMISES


One of our most appreciated promises has always been the exclusivity our clients have to their venue. Each venue consists of its own romantic bridal suite, unique chapel, spacious function room, beautifully landscaped and well maintained gardens, and private parking area. Our charming chapels can seat up to 220 guests and our venues can seat up to 450 guests, we can also incorporate the verandah area for bigger functions. We also cater for small and intimate functions as well as bigger functions. Our Bridal suites are available for our brides to get dressed in on the morning of their wedding and the couple are then welcome to sleep the night in the honeymoon suite, breakfast included. We have overnight facilities on the estate where your guests can stay over on the night of the wedding or function. During the photo session the guests are invited to have a pre-arranged welcome drink in the beautiful garden.
