COVID-19 pandemic – CANCELLATION POLICY UPDATE – 1st December 2021

INTERNATIONAL TRAVEL BANS

While there may be international travel bans due to COVID-19, we remain open for business and continue to follow strict COVID-19 protocols.
Postponement of your stay without penalty at the same 2021/2022 rate is our preferred way forward. We can gladly move your booking dates (subject to availability of course) or issue you with a travel voucher to redeem when there is more clarity about the way forward and you have alternative travel dates. You are most welcome to “wait & see” as to what transpires and only amend any bookings closer to your planned travel dates.

We do, however, understand that future travel may be difficult for our international guests, so we will consider each booking individually. We continue to recommend to all our guests that they take out comprehensive travel insurance when booking a holiday.

We would appreciate it if you would consider an outright cancellation and a refund request as a last resort. While the terms of our standard Cancellation Policy do specify that Ndaka Safari Lodge reserves the right to issue a voucher for future use and not refund in cash in lieu of cancelled
accommodation, we will process refund requests when funds permit, but our standard cancellation fees and conditions would apply.

UPDATED CANCELLATION POLICY DUE TO COVID-19 FOR SOUTH AFRICAN GUESTS

We have again had to amend our bookings and cancellation policy to reflect current realities due to the ongoing challenges of COVID-19:
Should a South African visitor wish to postpone a booking, the booking may be amended ONCE to any date within ONE year of their original travel dates without penalty, subject to availability and at the same 2021/2022 rate. Please note that, should the new booking however be in a higher season, then the higher 2021/2022/2023 rate would apply to “trade up”. Also, should a booking be changed a SECOND time, then that current 2022/2023 rate would apply and the shortfall would need to be paid.

Our standard cancellation fees will, however, apply for any outright cancellations for all South African-based guests, but we ask that you please rather consider postponing.

ENTRY AND USE AT OWN RISK

Kindly note that your entry at Ndaka Safari Lodge and your use of all facilities at the lodge is entirely at your own risk. The owners of Hulmar Properties trading as Ndaka Safari Lodge, the owners’ lessees, employees and contractors do not accept liability for any damages or injuries which may be sustained or suffered by any person arising from entry upon Ndaka Safari Lodge or the use of any of the facilities established thereon, irrespective of whether any such damages or injuries may be caused by or be attributed to any negligent act or omission.

Neither Nambiti Conservation Trust, Hulmar Properties (Pty) Ltd, Ndaka Safari Lodge, any lodge owner, their staff members, associates, agents, nor their suppliers can be held liable for any injuries caused during an incident involving the behaviour of wild animals.
