Join us on this long-weekend trek for Naomi House, as we experience the beauty of one of the most breathtaking and largest deserts in the world – The Sahara!
The challenge is to trek for four days through this ever-changing landscape and to climb to the top of the massive Chigaga Dunes, where you 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 your backdrop will be worth it!
With traditional Berbers as your guides, you will 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 trek is for you!
So join us as we conquer the Sahara!
