About The Event
The trek will take place 14-21 November 2020
Trek over 50km in the Sahara for Angel Trust as you scale sand dunes, face scorching temperatures and camp under the stars! After the trek you will spend 2 days making a difference at a community project in Marrakech.
This trek in the Moroccan Sahara gives you an insight into this vast and diverse landscape as well as the Berber way of life. You will spend two full days and two half days trekking across ancient dried up river beds, sand dunes and vast sun-baked plains. Camping each night gives you a chance to experience the stunning stars in the night sky (weather permitting) and the traditional Berber cuisine cooked by the team is second to none.
You will be accompanied by professional English-speaking Berber guides who have an excellent knowledge of culture and hiking in the region. The guides are first aid trained and will support you throughout your journey. You will also be accompanied by an team of support staff including cooks and camel handlers, a Different Travel Company UK tour manager.
