The Client confirming the booking must be no less than 21 years of age and agrees to provide full, complete and accurate information as requested by the company to confirm such booking.

All Clients are responsible for declaring any medical conditions to the company upon booking their tour Product, and may be required to complete the Medical Waiver Form for their safety.

Fitness participants must also complete and return a PAR Q Fitness Waiver Form prior to commencing any Fitness Camp or Weekend Warrior.

Clients may also be required to complete and return a PAR Q Medical Form


  • (a) indicates any pre-existing medical conditions which may have any impact on the Client’s ability to complete activities included in the tour Product, the Client’s ability to travel to remote areas removed from medical facilities, or which may have any impact whatsoever on the Client’s ability to travel or the travel experience of others on the Product tour; that Client must return a Medical Form, duly signed by a licensed, competent and practicing physician, to the company prior to or in conjunction with that Client’s final payment in respect of the applicable booking.

The Client agrees to complete the medical form honestly, accurately and represents and warrants to the company that they will disclose all relevant medical information accurately and fully. The company will maintain the information in strict confidence, in accordance with the the company’s Privacy Policy. The company reserves the right to request proof or further information or professional medical opinions in certain instances where it is deemed in the best interests of the Client or necessary for the safe operation of the Products. The company reserves the right to deny any Client permission to travel or participate in a Product where the company, acting reasonably, deems necessary with regard to the health and safety of the booking Client, any other Clients travelling with the company, or the company’s staff or representatives, and may use information provided in the Medical Form, expert opinions, and other information in formulating such decision. The company will provide a written explanation for any such decision upon request from the Client. In the event the Client has made a booking with the company and subsequently is unable to complete the required medical form for any reason by the deadline indicated above, the company reserves the right to treat such Client’s booking as cancelled, and all applicable cancellation fees shall apply.

Clients are responsible for assessing their own suitability and capability to participate in the tour Product such Client has booked. All Clients should consult their physician regarding their fitness for travel, and adventure travel in particular. The company encourages all Clients to seek their physician’s advice regarding necessary or advisable vaccinations, medical precautions, or other medical concerns regarding the entirety of the Client’s travel with the company. The company does not provide medical advice. Certain Products may not be suitable for all people due to restrictions posed by limitations in mobility, physical or cognitive disability or various other physical or mental conditions. It is the Client’s responsibility to assess the risks and requirements of each Product in light of such Client’s limitations, physical and mental fitness and condition, and any medical requirements or issues of such Client.

Adventure travel, as offered by the company, by its nature involves visiting remote or less developed regions, where medical facilities may not meet the standards of those found in a Client’s home country. The condition of medical facilities in the countries in which the company operates varies and the company makes no representations and gives no warranties in relation to the standard of such facilities or medical treatment in those regions.

Clients agree to sign and submit any other separate medical waiver required by outfitters working in conjunction with the company on specific international tours.


The company will endeavour to accommodate the special requests of Clients, including (without limitation) dietary and accommodation requests, but such requests do not form part of these Terms or the contract between Client and the company is not liable for any failure to accommodate or fulfill such requests.


CLIENT ACKNOWLEDGES THAT IS MANDATORY THAT ALL CLIENTS OBTAIN TRAVEL INSURANCE WITH A SUFFICIENT MEDICAL, EVACUATION, AND REPATRIATION COVERAGE covering all applicable dates of any travel with the company and this insurance must cover personal injury and emergency medical expenses. It is strongly recommended and encouraged that Client’s also extend their coverage to include cancellation, curtailment, and all other expenses that might arise as a result of loss, damage, injury, delay or inconvenience occurring to the Client. The Client acknowledges that the cost of the tour does not include any insurance coverage for such Client, and that the Client is required to obtain separate coverage at an additional cost to the Product tour price. When obtaining travel insurance the Client must ensure the insurer is aware of the type of travel to be undertaken so that the insurer may properly cover travel on the applicable company Product.


Due to the nature of Adventure travel and the prices of the resources on which it depends, the published price of any Product is subject to change at any time, before or after booking confirmation, up to 30 days before the departure of such Product. Tours are priced and advertised exclusive of applicable sales taxes. After a Confirmation Invoice has been issued by the company to the Client, the company reserves the right to impose surcharges on any Product(s), but only for reasons arising from increases in transportation costs, fuel costs, dues, local operator costs, increases in taxes, or government action which impacts the price of the applicable Product(s), but only where the increase in question is greater than 2% of the original price paid for the Product (excluding add-ons, insurance, and taxes). The company shall provide notice to the affected Client as soon as reasonably possible upon learning of the necessity to impose a surcharge in accordance with this section.

Where the increase in price is greater than 7% of the price of the applicable Product, upon receiving notification from the company the affected Client(s) may elect to either:

  • (a) cancel the applicable Product booking without incurring any penalty; or
  • (b) accept the change of price.

The Client must notify the company of their election within 14 days of receipt of notice of the increase, or they shall have been deemed to have accepted the price change and have accepted liability for payment of the increase.


All dates, itineraries and prices are indicative only and the price quoted at the time of Booking shall be the applicable price, subject to the surcharges that may be levied in accordance with these Terms. Changes, revisions, or other amendments may be made to the particulars contained in any of the the company’s brochures or on the company’s website before a contract is concluded, and such changes, revisions or amendments shall be incorporated herein as of the date of such amendment.

The Client acknowledges that due to the changing nature of travel, they are responsible for keeping up to date on the details of their travel on the company’s website and/or Facebook page, including, but not limited to checking the website or Facebook at least 72 hours prior to departure to ensure the Client has the most current Trip Details for the relevant Product tour as minor changes may have been made since the confirmation of booking.


At time of booking any tour, 50% is due upfront with the remaining balance due 5 months before the start date of the tour. Payments are non-refundable as the company begins to work immediately for the client after their deposit is received and the costs incurred from this work can not be recuperated. If there is limited availability for a specific tour, full payment is due upfront.


As a condition to valid confirmation of any booking with the company (including all Products) the Client must provide all necessary information as requested by the company along with their final payment. If the Client fails to provide such information prior to the day full payment is due in respect of the relevant Product, an Administrative Fee will be charged to the Client in respect of any costs payable by the company as a result of the Client’s failure to timely provide the required information. The information required from each Client will vary by Product purchased, and the requirements will be communicated to the Clients, or to the company’s authorized agent, during the booking process. The company will not be held responsible for any fees levied on the Client as a result of inaccuracies, late, misplaced, or otherwise incomplete or ineligible information provided by the Client.


Product tour prices do not include international airfare or any other flights unless expressly mentioned in the inclusions. The company will quote the best price available at the time of quoting for the travel dates requested. Quotes provide an indicative price only, and represent no price commitment by the company or the applicable airline(s). The company acts only as a sales agent for the applicable airline and the terms and conditions of the air ticket apply to the purchase and use of such ticket. Please consult the air carrier’s applicable terms and conditions and/or conditions of carriage for important information regarding cancellation terms, limitations of liability, and other disclaimers. The company is not responsible for changes in air itineraries or flight times and does not provide advice or alerts regarding air tickets or flight status or delays.


Clients should refer to the confirmation invoice sent by the company and/or its authorized agent and/or their applicable confirmation email for details regarding final payment for any tours booked. All trip deposit payments made by the client are final and non-refundable. Payment of the balance of the price for any tour is due 5 months before the start date of the tour. If full payment is not received by such due date, the company may change the rate payable for the tour, or may treat the booking of such tour as cancelled and shall retain any monies paid on booking, at the company’s sole discretion. If a tour is booked less than 5 months before the start date, then the full amount is payable at the time of booking. If, for any tour, payment terms differ from those outlined in this section, the applicable terms will be communicated to the Client prior to booking and shall also be detailed on the applicable invoice.

Clients who choose to split their trip cost over scheduled automated monthly payments instead of paying the full cost upfront understand these are non-refundable contractual payment instalments which will be collected by Man Expeditions each month automatically until the last instalment is collected. Clients understand the committed scheduled payments for their trip are fully claimable by Man Expeditions since Man Expeditions has to pay all associated vendors in advance to secure their placement on the trip. Clients have the right to transfer their booking to someone else who wishes to take their place in the event they should want to cancel. Client must have travel insurance incase of the need to cancel for health or trip interruption reasons.

The company is not responsible for any charges levied or charged by third parties and/or financial institutions and payable by the Client as a result of credit card or other payment transactions in connection with the purchase of Products and will not refund or return any fees charged by such third parties in connection with payments made by Clients to the company.


The company guarantees all scheduled Product tour departures that have been booked by a Client shall depart as scheduled (subject to reasonably itinerary changes as contemplated elsewhere in these Terms). Brochures, and other printed materials displaying tour information and departure dates are subject to change, and such dates are excluded from this guarantee. A departure shall become guaranteed once at least eight Clients has a confirmed booking upon it (secured, at minimum, via valid payment of a deposit). This guarantee is not applicable in Force Majeure situations, as herein defined.

If a tour is cancelled by the company before the agreed date of departure for reasons not arising from Force Majeure or the fault or negligence of or within the reasonable control of the Client, the Client shall have the choice of:

  • (a) accepting from the company a substitute tour Product of equivalent or superior value, where such substitute is reasonably available; or
  • (b) accepting from the company a substitute tour of lower value if no tour of equivalent or superior value is reasonably available, and to recover from the company the difference in price between the price of the tour originally purchased and that of the substitute tour; or
  • (c) accept from the company a full refund of all monies paid for the cancelled tour Product(s).

The company is not responsible for any incidental expenses or consequential losses that the Client may have incurred as a result of the cancelled booking such as visas, vaccinations, non-refundable flights or rail, non refundable car parking or other fees, loss of earnings, or loss of enjoyment, etc. The company reserves the right to issue a full refund in lieu of the choices above, in its sole discretion. Where after departure a significant element of the Product(s) as described cannot be provided, the company will make suitable alternative arrangements for the continuation of the trip Product(s). If it is not possible to provide a suitable alternative or the Client reasonably rejects any suitable alternatives, the company will provide the Client a refund of unused Products or Product portions.


The Client is entirely responsible for securing and must be in possession at all times while on a Product tour of the company a valid passport required for entry, departure and travel to each country or region visited or traveled through throughout the itinerary of the applicable Product tour, and for re-entry to the Client’s country of residence or departure (passport must be valid 6 months past the last date of travel with the company), as well as all visas, permits and certificates including vaccination certificates, insurance policies, required for entry into all regions and participation in all parts of the Product tour itinerary. The Client accepts full responsibility for obtaining all such documents, visas and permits prior to the start of the Product tour, and is solely responsible for any adverse consequences resulting from missing or defective documentation. Client agrees that they are responsible for the full amount of any loss or expense suffered or paid by the company which are a direct result of the Client’s failure to secure proper travel documentation. The company does not represent or warrant the accuracy of any information or advice given by the company regarding visas, vaccinations, climate, clothing, baggage, special equipment, etc. and Client agrees that the company is not responsible for any errors or omissions in such information.


The Client acknowledges by booking a Product and/or agreeing to travel with the company that the nature of adventure travel requires considerable flexibility and acknowledges that they will permit reasonable alterations to the Product and/or itinerary by the company. The Client acknowledges their understanding that the route, schedules, itineraries, amenities and mode of transport may be subject to change without prior notice due to circumstances or events, which may include sickness or mechanical breakdown, incidents in the location where the Product will be operated, flight cancellations, strikes, events emanating from political disputes, entry or border difficulties, extreme weather and other unpredictable or unforeseeable circumstances which are beyond the reasonable control of the company and that the company is not liable to any Client for such changes or amendments.

The company shall not be liable for or pay any discounts or refunds for missed or unused services which were missed or unused by the Client due to no fault of the company, its agents, or representatives, which shall include any termination of the Client’s participation in the tour Product due to the Client’s own fault, negligence or breach of these Terms.


Changes made by the company: Reasonable changes in the itinerary of any Product may be made where deemed necessary or advisable for operational reasons by the company, in its’ sole discretion. If the company makes a Material Change (defined as a change affecting at least one in three full tour days of the itinerary, or which materially affects the character of the Product in its entirety) to any Product, the company will inform the Client(s) booked on such Product of any Material Change as soon as reasonably possible, provided that there is sufficient time before departure to properly notify all affected Clients. If a Material Change is made more than 14 days prior to departure, the affected Client may elect to:

  • i) accept the Material Change and proceed with the amended Product;
  • ii) book another Product of equivalent or greater value, if available (Client shall be responsible for paying any difference in price between the amended Product and the Product booked in its place);
  • iii) book another Product of a lower value, if available, with a refund payable to the Client of the difference in price; or
  • iv) cancel and receive a full refund of all monies paid in respect of the land-only portion of the applicable Product (and for clarity, this shall not extend to additional Products booked by the same Client which are not subject to any Material Change).

The affected Client must notify the company or their travel agent of their decision within 7 days of receiving the notification of alteration, or they shall have been deemed to accept the Material Change and deemed to have agreed to the amended Product itinerary.

Once a Product tour has departed, changes to such Product’s itinerary may be necessary or advisable as a result of unforeseen circumstances or other reasons related to effective Product operation, health, safety, Client enjoyment, or Client comfort. Any such changes are at the discretion of the company. The Client acknowledges that they must have reasonable financial resources to cover incidental expenses on every Product on which they travel, whether or not they arise from a change in the itinerary or from the travel itself, and that the company shall not be liable for any Client’s failure to prepare adequately for their travel and unforeseen circumstances which may arise during such travel.

Any extra costs incurred for making the change will be charged to the Client along with an administrative fee. No changes are permitted to any booking within 10 days of departure of the first Product to depart under the applicable booking.

There are dangers inherent to adventure travel generally and Client acknowledges they have considered such risks to health and safety and are willing to assume it, by confirming their booking of such Product. The Client hereby assumes all such risk and does hereby release the company from all claims and causes of action arising from any losses, damages or injuries or death resulting from these risks inherent in travel, including adventure travel specifically, visiting foreign destinations, and participating in adventurous activities such as those included in Product itineraries. Standards of hygiene, accommodation and transport in some countries where Product tours take place are often lower than comparable standards than what the Client may reasonably expect in their home country or region.

The Client acknowledges that the degree and nature of personal risk involved depends on the nature of the Product booked, or the location(s) in which such Product is to operate, and that there may be a significant degree of personal risk involved in travel on the Product, particularly if such Product involves physical activities, travel to remote locations, carriage by watercraft, participation in “extreme sports” or other high-risk activities, or travel to countries with under-developed infrastructure. The Client acknowledges she or he has considered the potential risks, dangers and challenges in light of their own personal capabilities and needs, and expressly assumes the risks attendant to travel under such conditions.

Clients agree that they are responsible for any costs incurred by the company’s suppliers or the company’s partners, as a result of damage, destruction, theft, or excess cleaning fees caused or occasioned by the Client while on tour. Clients agree to immediately report any pre-existing damage of this kind to staff of the accommodation, transportation service, or facility (as appropriate) and/or a company representative as soon as possible upon discovery by the Client.

Client agrees to inform the Tour Leader or other designated representative at the earliest opportunity. The company assumes no liability for complaints that are not properly brought to the attention of the company with sufficient notice for the company to resolve or attempt to resolve any Client complaints. Any complaint made after the completion of a Product tour must be received in writing by the company via its Agents or directly within 30 days of the end of the tour Product in question.


The company makes arrangements with accommodation providers, activity providers, airlines, cruise lines, coach companies, transfer operators, shore excursion operators, tour and local guides, and other independent parties (“Third Party Suppliers”) to provide you with the travel services and other services you purchase or which form the component parts of your product Tour. Third Party Suppliers may also engage the services of local operators and/or sub-contractors for the provision of travel services that form part of the product Tour(s). Although the company takes all reasonable care in selecting Third Party Suppliers, the company is unable to control Third Party Suppliers and do not supervise Third Party Suppliers and therefore cannot be responsible for their acts or omissions. The travel services and other services provided are subject to the conditions imposed by these suppliers and their liability is limited by their tariffs, conditions of carriage, tickets and vouchers and international conventions and agreements that govern the provision of their services. These may limit or exclude liability of the supplier. Client acknowledges that Third Party Suppliers operate in compliance with the applicable laws of the countries in which they operate and the company does not warrant that any Third Party Supplier is in compliance with the laws of the Client’s country of residence, or any other jurisdiction.



All-inclusive adventure tours include all activity stated in itinerary, local transportation, meals, or any other product or service included in the Product description or itinerary, or in the price of the Product. Client agrees that any additional assistance given by the company’s Tour Leaders or other representative in arranging, selecting, or booking, any Optional Extras is purely at the request of the Client, and the company makes no warranties regarding such information and expressly disclaims any liability whatsoever arising from any Optional Extras or participation thereon by any Client, or any information provided by any company representative or Tour Leader regarding any Optional Extras. Accordingly, the Client hereby releases the company from all claims and causes of action arising from any damages, loss of enjoyment, inconvenience, or injuries related to or arising from participation in Optional Extras.

All Clients must ensure that they are fit and healthy to undertake all activities and complete a medical waiver, informing the company and its representative of any food allergies.
