Sahara Desert Trek 20 November to 25th November 2014

 


Experience the beauty of one of the most breathtaking and largest deserts in the world – The Sahara!

Hike through this ever changing landscape and climb to the top of the massive Chigaga Dunes,  to witness the desert sun-rise. The days will be hot, and the trekking will be tough, but the rewards of conquering this desert and the pleasure of having the volcanic Anti-Atlas Mountains as the backdrop will be worth it!

With traditional Berbers as your guides, we’ll experience the delights of Morocco first hand, in addition to being mesmerised by the remoteness and solitude that the Sahara brings. If you want to take part in one of the most fantastic charity events but have limited time to take away from the UK, this most unique adventure in charity challenge events is for you.
