Occasionally Inverdoorn Private Game Reserve (“we”) has to cancel confirmed bookings. We always endeavor to avoid cancelling, but we must reserve the right to do so. We shall not cancel your confirmed booking unless you fail to make all payments due in full and on time or we are forced to do so as a result of unusual and unforeseeable circumstances beyond our control, the consequences of which we could not have avoided even with all due care (“force majeure”). If we cancel your booking (except where you have failed to make payment or as a result of force majeure), we shall use our best endeavours to offer you the choice of purchasing an alternative holiday from us of a similar standard to that originally booked if available.

Except where we cancel for reasons other than those mentioned above, we shall have no further liability to You. We regret we cannot pay any expenses, costs or losses incurred as a result of any cancellation.

We reserve the right, without prior notice, to terminate the booking of any person in your party if, in our opinion or in the opinion of any other person in authority, the persons concerned behave in such a way to cause or be likely to cause danger, annoyance or distress to any third party or damage to property. In this situation, the person(s) concerned will be required to leave the reserve immediately. We shall have no further responsibility towards such person(s). No refunds will be made and we shall not pay any expenses or costs incurred as a result of the termination.
