Frequently Asked Questions
Q: Can I come as a single traveler even if the trip is priced for double occupancy?
A: Yes, you can. There may a nominal surcharge for single occupancy (to cover extra camp space fees) that is calculated on a per trip basis.
Q: Can I bring a pet?
A: Usually, the answer is no, since many of our journeys take place in wilderness settings or other areas with strict conservation and use policies. Service animals, however, are always welcome.
Q: Do I need to bring my own camping gear?
A: No, Wonderlust Expeditions supplies tents, cots, bedding, chairs, and all cooking equipment. For each trip we provide guests with a packing list of essential and suggested supplies.
Q: Will I have to set up my own tent?
A: No, the campsite will already be set up and ready for your trip when you arrive. We may ask you to assist with light clean-up duties at the end of the trip, but you won't need to put up or take down tents, cots, etc.
Q: What do Wonderlust campsites look like?
A: While locations vary, we use the same set-up and equipment each time. Since a picture is worth a thousand words:
