Tipping Guidelines

Tipping is entirely discretionary – and our staff will be very grateful for any amount you wish to give them. We are often asked for guidelines on how much to give, and to whom – so we have come up with the below. Please don’t feel like you have to give anything – it is our absolute pleasure to make you feel at home while you are with us!

  • Drivers on Transfers: $2 - $5 per transfer
  • Guides: $10 - $20 per couple per day
  • Lodge Staff: $5 - $10 per couple per day

The best way to tip the Lodge’s chefs, housekeepers and waiters is to use the staff tipping box – the contents of which are shared regularly. If there is someone who has really stood out and provided excellent service, and you wish to tip them separately – put your tip in an envelope with the person’s name, or pass it on via a Manager.

Credit card facilities are available – so you can add a gratuity when you settle your final bill on departure.
