What happens once I’ve booked?

On completion of your booking, we will send you an email to confirm and will send you directions. We will also ask for your preferences regarding bed configuration and diet.

Deposit payments

We accept internet bank transfers and MasterCard and Visa credit cards.



Existing bookings:

If you have a confirmed booking with us but cannot travel: please postpone rather than cancel your trip if at all possible. We are more than happy to move your payment to a future date. We cannot afford to reimburse you at this time.

 Future bookings:

If you are booked with us for later in the year, the same applies. Please do not cancel your trip at this time. Should you be unable to travel for your holiday due to continuing restrictions, we will move any deposits paid to a future date.


And post corona virus…

If you are receiving a steady wage and you do not think you will be badly financially affected by the effects of this virus, why not plan your holidays for next year?! You can either book as usual; we ask just for a 10% deposit to secure your booking, OR you can buy a voucher, pay in full and receive a special rate. The voucher will be valid for stays at any time before 31 March 2021 (subject to availability). By doing this your payment will help us to continue to pay wages and other expenses during these challenging times. Please send me an email if you would like to purchase a voucher.

Our sincere wishes for you and all your loved ones to remain healthy and safe,

from Emma, Anton and the team at Umkhumbi Lodge
