HOW MUCH MONEY DO I HAVE TO RAISE?
That will depend on your challenge. You can see the Minimum Fundraising amount for each challenge on the relevant page. We also offer Open Challenges where you can choose to Self Fund your place.
HOW MUCH OF THIS MONEY GOES TO THE CHARITY?
Our Bespoke Charity Challenges are always run on a 50:50 minimum ratio. This means that of the money you raise, at least half goes to furthering the vital work of the charity and the remaining money is used to cover the cost of your trip.
ARE THE CHALLENGES SAFE?
All of our challenge events involve an element of risk (that’s part of what makes them challenges!) but we work closely with our partners to ensure that your trip is memorable for all the right reasons! We risk assess all our trips and we comply with BS8848 British Standard.
WHO WILL I BE TRAVELLING WITH?
You will be travelling with your best friends ( you just haven’t met some of them yet!). Group sizes vary, but typically there will be 12-30 fellow participants on your trip.
WHO WILL BE LOOKING AFTER US ON THE CHALLENGE?
We use only the best English-speaking local guides who have years of experience of guiding. They will not only be there to ensure that you are healthy, safe and well looked-after – they will also be more than happy to give you a real insight into their culture and traditions!
WILL I GET SUPPORT FROM THE CHARITY FOR MY FUNDRAISING?
Absolutely! Whilst it is your responsibility to reach your fundraising target, all our partner charities have staff dedicated to supporting participants taking part in Really Wild events like these.
CAN I EXTEND MY STAY AFTER THE CHALLENGE?
Yes, many of our departure dates allow participants to stay on as a group after the challenge has finished and explore on on of our post challenge extensions.
DO I HAVE TO SPEAK THE LOCAL LANGUAGE TO ENJOY THIS TRIP?
No! All our staff speak fluent English and you will find that, whilst leaning a bit of the local language is greatly appreciated and very useful, English is widely spoken and understood.
