You must purchase a comprehensive and extended insurance policy that covers all the activities during the trip you signed up for, including personal insurance, luggage, full medical coverage for adventure travel, including rescue from dangerous and remote places
Important note: Phototeva does not insure or provide insurance coverage for travelers or their equipment. Participants must purchase full insurance for all the usual and adventure activity expected on the trip, including accidents and medical insurance. The participants are responsible for purchasing the required insurance coverage. It is very important to take care of this as soon as possible.
As in any trip, especially to a remote destination whose infrastructure of tourism, transport, rescue, evacuation, and medical services are very poor, problems and injuries may occur. By signing up for this trip, the participant declares that he/she understands and accepts the expected and unexpected dangers that may occur and could cause serious injury and even worse and that his/her physical health and mental strength are sufficient for such a journey. The participants must ensure that they have received all the information they need before embarking on the trip.
You must purchase a comprehensive and extended insurance policy that covers all the activities during the trip (including winter sports and air medical services). This includes personal insurance, baggage insurance, full adventure travel insurance, including medical evacuation from remote and dangerous areas and subsequent treatment in Israel or your home country, as well as trip cancellation insurance.

Participants must purchase full insurance coverage for all the regular and extreme activities expected on the expedition, including accident and medical insurance. Participants are responsible for purchasing the required insurance policy
As with any trip, preparations are required, such as vaccinations, visa arrangements, etc. Phototeva cannot provide such information as it varies from person to person.
Local authorizes are likely to ask you to show a proof that you have received needed vaccinations.
If the participant has a medical problem that may interfere with or prevent him/her from taking part in the various trip activities, he/she must notify the company before registration and tell the guide at the start of the trip. In some cases, you will be required to provide a doctor’s note from the attending physician in order to join the trip. Without this permission, you cannot participate.
If a visa is required, it is the responsibility of travelers to make sure it is obtained. Phototeva will not be responsible for the refusal of entry for visitors or even the entire group. The decision is made only by local authorities.
The trip is contingent upon a minimum number of participants.
Phototeva and the trip organizers cannot guarantee that you will sight or photograph any particular animal. Nature is totally wild and there are many variables that can affect this.
Changes and schedule delays may occur due to reasons including, but not limited to: extreme weather, animal location, mechanical faults, local government decision, and more. The final decision on the schedule will be determined by the training team.
In very rare cases, the instructor may be replaced before the start of the trip.
In rare cases, Phototeva may cancel the trip at any stage and provide a refund.
