4. Cancellation of Bookings

4.1. In accordance with section 17 of the Consumer Protection Act No. 68 of 2008, the client is entitled to cancel this agreement at any time before the booked arrival date, but subject to African Habitat charging a reasonable cancellation fee.

4.2. The parties agree and acknowledge that in the hospitality industry, bookings are taken far in advance of the actual stay date, and while African Habitat will do everything possible to accommodate a date change, given the advanced nature of bookings, and the likely loss that African Habitat will incur, a date change (for whatever reason, howsoever arising) will be treated the same as a cancellation of the booking.

4.3. Each cancellation will be reviewed on its own merits and according to its own unique circumstances to determine the applicable cancellation fee. As a guideline, the cancellation fee will be dependent on the proximity of the termination with the date booked arrival date – the guidelines below serve as an illustration:
• 60 (or more) days prior to arrival date – 20% of the total reservation value (no refund of deposit).
• 59 – 31 days notice prior to arrival date – 50% of the total reservation value.
• 0 – 30 days notice prior to arrival date – 100% of the total reservation value.
