Sahara Trek Challenge

6am - Thursday 14th November 2019, at Sahara Desert

Join us for 3 days of trekking across the 3rd largest desert in the world as you take on our Sahara challenge*!

Spend 3 days trekking in the Sahara on this Moroccan adventure, gaining insight into the vast and diverse landscape of the desert as you cross ancient dried up river beds, sand dunes and sun-baked plains.

Be awed by breathtaking sunsets and fall asleep each night under a blanket of stars. You’ll also learn a little about the Berber way of life as your guides prepare traditional, local cuisine and offer insight into the way the nomadic people survive in the inhospitable desert environment.
