PARADISE & WILDERNESS has closed legal expenses insurance at DAS. This insurance is in the interests of the company, but also in the interests of the traveler, our customer. At a (threatening) dispute PARADISE & WILDERNESS goes first with you in conversation. If we do not come out together, then the company asks legal assistance of DAS. At first, we look for a solution in consultation with you through mediation (mediation by an independent person). Failing that, or you doubt the independence or impartiality, then you have the right to your own mediator (mediator). You can do that at (Netherlands Federation mediators). The costs incurred by you for mediation are for 50% reimbursed by PARADISE & WILDERNESS.

What is mediation?

In mediation you solve together with the other (s) your conflict under the guidance of an independent mediator (mediator). The big difference from legal experts, lawyers and judges is that the mediator has no position, no solutions in mind and no decisions. If you want to do that on your own, the mediator will guide you in doing so. You work and think actively with it and you determine the solution. Because of this, the solution is often better than a solution imposed by, for example, a judge. The mediator chooses no party but remains independent and neutral.

At PARADISE & WILDERNESS, quality, duty of care and customer focus is of paramount importance. We trust therefore that there will be no conflicts, so that you will not have to use safety of the legal net. It is our intention that you hold only a fantastic memory of your trip after a safari with us.
