Frequently Asked Questions

  • Can you help us with our visas if needed?

    Unfortunately we are unable to give visa advice due to the vast number of nationalities which our customers represent. Some nationalities can travel freely over borders, where others require advance permission to enter. There are also changes in requirements from time to time. We recommend checking your local embassy or consulate's website for the latest up to date information.

  • What do I need to know about this trip?

    This 40 week adventure is a camping based trip, and is a fully participatory trip. For much of the time you'll camp rough (bush camps) for extended periods of time (so you can expect sleeping on the ground in tents with no shower or toilet facilities). The campsites you will be staying at on this trip will be very varied and provided with some very basic facilities. The cooking and cleaning is done by all members of the group on a rotation system. There are often no toilets, so the side of a road or a bush has to do.
