Q: Will I find a meteorite on the expeditions?​

A: We cannot guarantee you will find a meteorite on any of our expeditions. That being said, every single one of our previous expeditions participants has found a meteorite on their hunt.

Q: Is airfare included?

A: Airfare is not included. 

Q: Where will we be staying and sleeping overnight? How much will it cost?

A: Lodging is included in our package fees. Either hotel stays when available, or high-end campsite with tents, running water, and lavatories will be available for use during the expeditions. We will return every night near sunset.

Q: Are meals included?

A: Domestic expeditions: participants are responsible for their own food and packing their own lunch during the day. International expeditions: yes. Before any International expeditions formally begins, we will make a trip to a supermarket so each participant can purchase their own food for the entire trip. Continental breakfast may be available at the hotels (where available)

Q: Do I need to bring my own metal detector?
A: You do not need to bring your own metal detector, though using your own equipment can enrich the experience. If you decide to bring one, we highly recommend the MINELAB Vanquish 540 metal detectors as they are extremely lightweight, compact, notably powerful in desert conditions and extremely affordable.

Q: Are we free to hunt by ourselves away from the team?

A: Absolutely! Along with being an effective tactic when hunting in a group, we encourage all participants to explore the environment, scout the desert and make their own finds, as long as they return back to base for scheduled events. We recommend portable GPS to prevent you from getting lost. 

Q: What do I need to bring?

A: Once you sign up and pay for your expedition, you will receive a Welcome Letter with specifics on what gear to bring. 

Q: Is it safe?

A: We do our absolute best to keep participants safe. We travel in groups with local guides, stay fed and well hydrated. There is an inherent danger to meteorite adventures as the outdoors are wild and unpredicitable. 

Q: How should I physically prepare for my meteorite hunt?

A: Participants should be prepared for long walks and we recommend that you condition yourself physically prior to the expedition so you can comfortably walk a few miles. Try going for long walks or hikes in the months leading up to your expedition. 


If you are unable to walk comfortably for a few miles, we strongly recommend renting your own vehicle for transportation. Our expeditions are open to everyone, veteran or beginner as we have a multitude of levels of Adventures offered -- from basic training sessions, Beginner, Intermediate and Advanced hunts. 

We recommend activities like bending, squatting and carrying a pack to train your muscles prior to the event if you are able. You should discuss arduous hiking and travel with your medical professionals if you sign up for our Intermediate or Advanced hunts, if there is a concern.  If you have specific abilities or disabilities, please ask our staff for our accommodations ahead of time.  We have hosted an 11 year old on crutches and all ages up to an 84 year old on both domestic and international hunts
