The Sahara is the largest hot desert and the third largest desert in the world after Antarctica and the Arctic. Its area of 9,200,000 square kilometres is comparable to the area of China or the United States
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 a delight.
After your trek you will start the second part of your challenge, spending two days assisting a community project in Marrakech, such as an organisation which supports street children, a medical day clinic or a home for the elderly. Here you will have the opportunity to get hands on with refurbishment, redecorating and gardening tasks which make an instant visible positive impact for the local community.
