Frequently Asked Questions

  • What does a campsite with basic facilities refer to?

    Campsites do have facilities but they usually aren't the same standard you would find in western countries. For example the bathroom facilities can be very basic (the toilets may be a squat-style hole in the ground). There is rarely toilet paper provided and shower facilities can be as simple as a hose pipe spurting out cold water. Wild camps have no facilities at all.
