5. ACKNOWLEDGMENT OF RISKS

Inconsideration of the services of the workshop leaders, their officers, agents, employees, stockholders and all other persons or entities associated with those businesses (hereinafter collectively referred to as "the Workshop Leaders"), 1 agree as follows: Although the Workshop Leaders have taken reasonable steps to provide me with appropriate equipment and skilled guides, so I can enjoy an activity for which I may not be skilled, the Workshop Leaders have informed me this activity is not without risk. Certain risks are inherent in each activity and cannot be eliminated without destroying the unique character of the activity. These inherent risks are the same elements that contribute to the unique character of this activity and can be the cause of loss or damage to my equipment, or accidental injury, illness, or in extreme cases, permanent trauma or death. The Workshop Leaders do not want to frighten me or reduce my enthusiasm for this activity, but believe it is important for me to know in advance what to expect and to be informed of the inherent risks. The following describes some, but not all, of those risks: weather events such as storms, lightning, and high winds; exposure to heat, cold, or cold water resulting in hyperthermia, hypothermia, heat exhaustion, and heat stroke; injuries related to hiking over uneven terrain or falling from heights such as muscle or joint strains and sprains, and broken bones; drowning in ocean waters or inland streams; injuries related to physical exertion including exhaustion, stroke, or cardiac events; and damage to photography equipment.

I am aware that nature photography entails risks of injury or death to any participant. I understand the description of these inherent risks is not complete and that other unknown or unanticipated inherent risks may result in injury or death. I agree to assume and accept full responsibility for the inherent risks identified herein and those inherent risks not specifically identified. My participation in this activity is purely voluntary, no one is forcing me to participate, and I elect to participate in spite of and with full knowledge of the inherent risks.

I acknowledge that engaging in this activity may require a degree of skill and knowledge different from other activities and that I have responsibilities as a participant. I acknowledge that the Workshop Leaders have been available to more fully explain to me the nature and physical demands of this activity and the inherent risks, hazards, and dangers associated with this activity. I certify that I am fully capable of participating in this activity. Therefore, I assume and accept full responsibility for myself, including all minor children in my care, custody, and control, for bodily injury, death or loss of personal property and expenses as a result of those inherent risks and dangers identified herein and those inherent risks and dangers not specifically identified, and, as a result of my negligence in participating in this activity.

COVID-19 Update

(Updated Aug 2020)

While the travel and safety situation around COVID-19 has improved there is still uncertainty at this point when a widely available vaccine will be ready. Based on what we’ve read so far this is expected to be the case before our planned tours will take place. When you also feel comfortable to go on a tour again, you can be rest assured by our COVID-19 travel policy.

6. NEW FLEXIBLE BOOKING CONDITIONS

A full refund will be given:

  1. In the event of a tour cancellation from our side for any reason.
  2. When you have to cancel due to any COVID-19 related issue at any time prior to the tour start.
  3. You can transfer your trip free of charge to any other tour up to 8 weeks before departure for any given reason.

Best Practices for joining a Tour/Workshop

While our earliest tour dates are still far away and the situation is changing quickly, we can already assure you that we will monitor the latest government guidelines prior and during the tour. Therefore, we also expect from our participants to follow the instructions from the tour leaders at all time.

More detailed information around the tour preparation and the effect COVID-19 will have on this will be communicated on a later stage when the tour dates are coming closer.

Booking Flights

We strongly recommend waiting with booking your flights or only book flexible/refundable tickets. MRP can not be held responsible for any financial loses due any flight cancellations prior to the tour.
