8th to 13th March 2019
In March 2019 we will feel the Sahara Desert underfoot, taking in mesmerising landscapes and the unique view of the dramatic sand dunes. Imagine sleeping under the clearest view of the stars you’ve ever seen and waking up to the most expansive sunrise you’ll never forget!
Setting off from Ouarzazate in Morocco, ‘the door of the desert’, we will be led by camels into the largest hot desert in the world. Climbing the dunes of Ait Oumir, scaling the cliffs of the southern Drâa and conquering the highest dunes in the region, L’erg Zaher.
The 6 day trek is led by proud berbers and a small caravan of camels, winding through the desert between Ouarzazate and M’Hamid. As well as the spectacular scenery and immersive landscapes, challenge yourself to conquer the desert heat, arduous climbs and challenging conditions – all in the name of fundraising for St John’s Hospice. This will be our third overseas adventure. Almost £300,000 has been raised in our first two treks!
We will be updating this page with more and more info, but if you are interested and would like to know more, then please come along to one of our launch events on the 24th May at The Courtyard Cafe at St John’s Hospice. Attendance is FREE and there is no obligation to sign up whatsoever. Please register your attendance HERE.
