How YOU can HELP our displaced staff.
We are appealing for financial contribution to you, our past guests and friends of Jungle Bay. Many of you have experienced the hospitality, love, affection and warmth of Joanne, Jannet, Justinian, Ritchie, Brother, Carlos, Keith, and the dozens of others including those who worked behind the scenes to make the Jungle Bay experience amazing and memorable.
Please find it in your hearts to assist this family in their time of crisis.
