Sahara Desert Challenge

3 March, 2018 - 11:30 to 12 March, 2018 - 22:45

Event Type: 

 

Join us on this superb trekking adventure challenge taking you deep into the biggest desert in the world, the Sahara. As you journey across the rolling dunes, following routes used for centuries by Bedouins and camel caravans, you will be captivated by your extraordinary surroundings.

The highlight of your trek is reached at our furthest point from civilization. Hovering on the horizon you will have seen Erg Zaher for a couple of days before you reach it. You will climb this 1900 foot dune, towering majestically over the dunes of the Chigaga region to watch the sun set and for most people, this is a moment to reflect on the purpose of your challenge and your amazing achievement.

The solitude and freedom of the desert can be life changing and the minimalist existence is both liberating and humbling as your everyday life back home feels a million miles away. By the time you finish, it will be hard to leave the desert behind but with a rewarding sense of achievement, you will take home some very special memories.

Highlights:

  • Wild camping under the stars amongst the magnificent dunes of Chigaga
  • Experience the minimalist existence and solitude of nomadic desert life
  • Suitable for experienced adventurers and those looking for their first challenge
  • A wonderful 10 day adventure includes driving across the High Atlas Mountains
  • Explore the ancient city of Marrakech – voted world’s best destination 2015
