Reservations can only be confirmed on receipt of a deposit of 20% of the total cost (or full payment if booking is being done within 4 weeks of arrival at Jungle Lodge).

Final balance should be paid no later than 4 weeks before arrival at Lodge. Failure to pay may be treated as cancellation, and our cancellation terms applied.

As a small, privately-run establishment we prefer to have 100% security that clients do not forfeit their reservation. We feel it would not be fair to potential clients to decline availability and then have reserved guests not turn up.

- Less than 8 weeks to 4 weeks before arrival, 30% of published price as cancellation charge.
