The challenge

  • Experience the land, the people and the wildlife of the Sahara Desert
  • Cover 100km on this five-day trek
  • Pass through valleys, gorges, plateaus, sand dunes and oases
  • Climb Jebel Lamrakeb for incredible views of the region
  • Celebrate the group’s impressive achievement in Ouarzazate

Uncover life in the fascinating Sahara Desert in this this five-day trek, covering 100km.

This challenge goes beyond the Jebel Saghro region, a forbidding landscape punctuated by peaks, gorges and oases. It is the land of the Ait Atta tribe, who migrate here from the High Atlas Mountains in winter.

The first day in Morocco is spent crossing the Maider El Kbir plateau and passing rose dunes.

A challenging climb up Jebel Lamrakeb is well worth it. Walking through palm gorges, the route joins the dry Rhris River and heads towards an oasis of tamarisk trees. The final days are spent trekking along the Tikertouachene River, before celebrating in Ouarzazate.

It was a phenomenal experience, something which was way out of my comfort zone but I'm so glad I took on the adventure. The team was super supportive, and made the whole challenge a lot more enjoyable.

The unforgettable vastness of The Sahara - the vivid red sunsets that covered miles on the western horizon and not forgetting the fun we had racing down the sand dunes!

The best part of the day was the end; the camp fire, eating under the stars with good company. As clichéd as it sounds, an experience of a lifetime!
