Sahara Desert Trek 2019

Duration – 8 Days (Multiple Dates Available)

Take on the unique experience of raising funds for Starlight Children’s Foundation by rediscovering true adventure in the awe-inspiring Sahara Desert. This five-day trek covers 100km; passing through Morocco’s forbidding landscape punctuated by peaks, gorges, dunes and oases.

The first day in Morocco is spent crossing the Maider El Kbir plateau and passing rose dunes.
A challenging climb up Jebel Lamrakeb is well worth it. Walking through palm gorges, the route joins the dry Rhris River and heads towards an oasis of tamarisk trees. The final days are spent trekking along the Tikertouachene River, before celebrating your achievement in Ouarzazate.
