Booking Policy

Booking & payment

A booking is made upon confirmation in writing with a booking reference & receipt of deposit.

Full payment is due 30 days prior to arrival. 50 % deposit is due 31 days or more prior to arrival. In the event of non-payment of a deposit or balance due, Lidwala Lodge reserves the right to cancel any bookings without notice or liability to the client. Please note payment is the client’s responsibility and that any international bank charges or transaction fees incurred during the payment process is the responsibility of the client and will be borne by the client.


Having confirmed your booking, you have concluded a contract with us and we are holding your accommodation exclusively for you. Because the room is kept for you, it is unavailable for others to book. Cancellations pose a significant challenge for our operations as we turn away other potential guests during the time your room was reserved for you. Because of this, kindly be understanding of our cancellation policy which helps to balance the potential loss of revenue whilst ensuring the sustainability of our services for all guests. If in doubt when booking, we recommend travel insurance to protect against unforeseen circumstances that may arise.

Cancellations will attract the following fees:

  • 30 days prior to arrival (and no shows) – 100% of the total booking amount
  • 31 – 90 days prior to arrival – 50% of the total booking amount
  • 91 days or more prior to arrival – 25% of the booking amount
