Sahara Trek 2017
Nov 2, 2017 @ 8:00 am - Nov 7, 2017 @ 5:00 pm
Join us on this long-weekend trek for charity, as we experience the beauty of one of the most breathtaking and largest deserts in the world – The Sahara!
Our charity challenge is to trek for four days through this ever-changing landscape and to climb to the top of the massive Chigaga Dunes, where we will witness the desert sun-rise. The days will be hot, and the trekking will be tough, but the rewards of being part of one of the best fundraising events around, conquering this desert and the pleasure of having the volcanic Anti-Atlas Mountains as our backdrop will be worth it! With traditional Berbers as our 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.
