2. If South Africa issues an inbound travel ban, banning clients from entering, or forcing arriving clients into quarantine.


Refunds:

1. In order for us to ride out this global epidemic storm as a privately owned travel & tourism business, we are unable to offer any refunds at this time although, as described above, bookings may be deferred to a future date.

2. We trust that our partners and guests understand our situation; we are doing all we can to work with our guests and partners to find mutually agreeable solutions.

3. This step is necessary to ensure that our business can continue to operate through these difficult times so that we will be here for you when the storm blows over.

4. We reserve the right to make changes to these new terms and conditions at any time and will send out notifications.

As soon as the Corona Virus epidemic has been contained we will revert back to our original terms and conditions for bookings.

    Been to Ama Case a few times and it really feels like home away from home. Our accommodation is always clean and tidy and is well equipped. The staff is always friendly and willing to walk the extra mile to make your stay a pleasant one. Les`s garden is always beautiful and well kept. We always feel welcome and because of that this is our number one accommodation for sure. You don`t realize how fortunate you are to be staying in such a beautiful part of our country.

    Thanks for an awesome 2 weeks and hope to see you soon.

    Love Frans and Desiree
