FAQs

  • Do you have a strict age restriction on this trip?

    In regards to age, in general Oasis welcomes all comers, and feel that a diverse range of nationalities, ages, backgrounds and outlook helps to make the trips what they are. Anyone who is keen to get involved with the group and understands that our trips involve getting your hands dirty and helping out is likely to have a great time.

    At the same time, they think it’s important that we make people aware of some aspects of the trip, to ensure that they have given these due consideration when deciding whether to travel with us.

    Though the trips are increasingly diverse these days, the core of most groups is still people who are in their 20s and 30s.
