Acceptance and Risk
The Client acknowledges that the nature of the trip is adventurous and participation involves a degree of personal risk. The Client will be visiting places where the political, cultural and geographical attributes present dangers and physical challenges greater than those present in our daily lives. We use information from government foreign departments and reports from our own contacts in assessing whether the itinerary should operate. However it is also the Client’s own responsibility to acquaint himself with all possible relevant travel information and the nature of his itinerary. The Client acknowledges that his decision to travel is made in light of consideration of this information and accepts that he is aware of the personal risks attendant upon such travel.

Indigo Explorer makes arrangements with accommodation providers, activity providers, transfer operators, tour and local guides, and other independent parties (“Third Party Suppliers”) to provide the Client with the travel services and other services the Client purchases or which form the component parts of the Client’s 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 Indigo Explorer takes all reasonable care in selecting Third Party Suppliers, Indigo Explorer 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. The Client acknowledges that Third Party Suppliers operate in compliance with the applicable laws of the countries in which they operate and Indigo Explorer 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.
