Rules and Regulations

  • The R90,00 per head Ingwelala entrance fee shall apply and the indemnity form is to be completed by all guests over the age of 16 years.

Due to Sibon's increasing popularity, kindly note the booking procedures for Sibon from the 1st day of each month: 
1. The Sibon terms, conditions and cancellation policies remain the same, as per the booking form that is sent to you on confirmation. 
2. As bookings may only be requested 12 months in advance, adjudication will commence at midnight. 
3. The first of the month opens bookings for the entire 12th month of the following year. For example: on 1 August 2015, you may book for the 16th August 2016. 
4. E-mail bookings have preference over telephonic and across the counter requests. All bookings are to be followed up by an e-mail so that we have a paper trail of your booking correspondence. 
5. For bookings received on the 1st of the month, your booking request will be confirmed to you on the 2nd day, so we may reconcile all the bookings in a fair and consistent manner. 
6. Prior correspondence received before midnight will not be taken into consideration. 
7. Kindly note, that booking requests overlapping into the 13th month, will be confirmed as a single continuous booking.

The Reserve Office will gladly assist you with any further questions you might have.
