The management will take up requests on case to case basis and in accordance to our cancellation policies.

Furthermore, as per the guidelines laid out by the Indian Government on Foreign Nationals visiting Karnataka, the Health Ministry has indicated a mandatory 14-day quarantine for all travellers, arriving from or having visited China, Italy, Iran, South Korea, France, Spain and Germany after February 15. Waterwoods Lodge Kabini will abide by the order of requesting for travel itinerary of any foreign national tourist / domestic international tourist so as to be furnished and presented to the necessary authorities or facilitate medical spot checks from competent authorities.

As per the Government’s directive, the wildlife safaris are suspended till 31st March as both Nagarhole and Bandipur Tiger Reserves are closed down. Entry into the safari zones will not be permitted except on the National Highways during day hours.
