We fully understand and appreciate the magnitude of the current global travel dilemma due to the Corona Virus pandemic and as such we wish to be lenient on our guests at this challenging time. As a result, we have adopted the below for the duration of the above mentioned dates

  • Bookings postponed at least 2 weeks prior to travel, but taken up within 6 months of the original booking date will attract no amendment fees
  • Subject to confirmation by management, Lidwala Lodge will honour the original rate charged for bookings postponed up to 12 months from date of booking
  • Should a booking for a low season period, be postponed to a high season period, Lidwala Lodge will charge the difference between the low season and high season rate (as at the time of the initial booking)
  • Bookings may only be amended once free of charge
  • Standard terms and conditions will apply to cancellations


Lidwala Lodge will continue to monitor the changes during the global Corona Virus pandemic and we will revise policies as new information becomes available.
