Beyond Sahara TREK

 

Leave the UK behind and follow in the footsteps of adventurers as we head to Morroco and the mystical Sahara desert.

We will arrive in Marrakech and be whisked off to our starting point on the edge of the Sahara Desert. Where a night in a traditional Morrocon hotel awaits (Don't worry its got all mod cons, even a pool), but thats where the luxury ends as on day two we set off on our adventure deep into the Sahara, where we will be greeted by stunning scenery, amazing sunsets and more stars in the evenings than you will ever have seen.

The days will be tough but with nights under the stars and deep sleep in the desert take this opportunity to experience life as it was.

No phones, No tv, just the beauty of your surroundings.

Our route will take us through centuries of time as we pass long dried out sea's where you can literally pick up fossils (All-though we dont take them home), we are heading for the Erg Chegaga dunes, Sand dunes that have been formed over a millennia and where everyone's mind instantly takes you when you think of the Sahara, we will spend a night in the Dunes before we head back towards our finish point and two more Days of walking (3 nights in the Desert under the stars).

The return to the hotel is met with a nice hot shower, some lovely locally made food and a few drinks to celebrate all we have achieved.
